Owner Testimonial

"We sold our last property in Panama City Beach and naturally cancelled our property management relationship with you. However we cannot let the moment pass without  telling you how much we have appreciated the exceptional service delivered by Panhandle Getaways for so many years. We consistently experienced top notch, professional service in a all areas. One very important aspect of your service is the way you manage the financial side of the business, never were our payments late, reports and tax reporting very timely, understandable and fair. In addition we always felt the staff was professional, accommodating and responsive...we would not hesitate to recommend Panhandle Getaways as a cut above in the property management arena. We will miss the relationships developed and experienced over the past many years that we did business with you."
