Investing in real estate is a challenge in itself, but managing units and the tenants that occupy them can bring a whole new level of concern. Pamela Parrino witnessed this firsthand when she began investing in properties at a young age. She put a considerable amount of time and effort into ensuring her investments were reaching their fullest potential, and over the years, has perfected her craft. This eventually led her to realize she could create an entirely new business with her unique skill set. Founding Suncoast Leasing and Management, Pamela seeks to eliminate the stress that comes with owning a rental property. She provides all the support landlords and tenants need to make the leasing experience seamless. As an investor herself, she knows exactly what owners need, and will go above and beyond to take care of every detail.
With 70 properties and counting, Suncoast Leasing and Management has become a prominent company in Manatee and Sarasota counties. They’re known for delivering superior service and providing a hands-on approach. “We consider ourselves a boutique/concierge management company,” Pamela explains. “We do everything for our owners in terms of arranging for anything that needs to be done. If it’s a new build, we will register and get all the warranties on every appliance. We’ll work with the builder to make sure everything gets fixed. We find the renters and complete thorough background checks.” No stone is left unturned with Suncoast Leasing and Management, as they even make sure renters are paying rent as well as the special tax Florida imposes upon those who stay for less than six months. “We then file that tax on behalf of the homeowner, so they don’t have to worry about an additional level of paperwork.” In fact, Pamela and her team handle everything that is involved with renting out a property, and only reach out to their owners if an issue arises that costs more than $500 to fix, or if they need to run a renter’s question by them.
Taking the pressure off their homeowners, it is unsurprising that Suncoast Leasing and Management has a high retention rate. One owner recently said, “Our experience with Suncoast Leasing and Management has been nothing less than exceptional. Pam, Nikki, Carmen and the rest of the team have been super responsive and pleasant to work with. A professional operation driven by a strong practice of providing great customer experience is what sets them apart from the rest. So if personal touch, prompt responsiveness, and a genuine concern for all needs is what you look for in a property management team… then look no further. Because we are a full service Brokerage alot of our residents/guests end up choosing us to help them find their perfect home in the Sarasota/Manatee area. Suncoast delivers on all levels of service consistently which speaks volumes of their methods of operation and how reputable they truly are!” Also on their website they keep an up to the minute calendar of available properties, pictures, time frames they are open and prices to help potential renters determine if the rental is going to work for them.
Actively involved in the community, Suncoast Leasing and Management participates in quarterly blood drives, donates gifts to foster children during the holidays, and sponsors several local events throughout the year. Pamela also teaches Real Estate investing 101 and 102 at 6pm on the first Thursday of every month. She loves animals, and during her free time she’s spending time with her pets. “I have two dogs and two cats, so I love relaxing with them when I can.” She also loves to take advantage of everything Florida has to offer, including the beaches and year-round wonderful weather.
As for the future, Pamela plans to continue providing exceptional service and solidifying her company’s reputation. She also wants to educate her team on the importance of investing, and help them establish portfolios for themselves. “Speaking to our homeowners as investors ourselves, we are able to convey that we know where they’re coming from and anticipate their needs.”
