“The team at Newman-Dailey is very friendly and accommodating. We use our property during the winter months and have been very happy with the way Newman-Dailey cares for our condo. The housekeeping is excellent.”

-- Ray Gonsior

Choosing the company that will represent and safeguard your new vacation home is a monumental decision. Such a substantial investment should only be looked after by the most trusted and caring steward––one who will manage your new property with a superior degree of professionalism. This includes securing rentals only from considerate, responsible guests, and maximizing your return through an expert understanding of the industry and intimate knowledge of the destination.

Our Partnership & Commitment

“Newman-Dailey is meeting my revenue goals because of excellent staff like Jessica. We depend on each other. I know I have to do my part and she looks out for me.”

-- Pat Awbrey

Many companies can manage your rental property. Newman-Dailey manages your rental investment. Our commitment to your investment goes far beyond linens and landscaping. We provide expert management and expert counsel, and we partner with you to achieve your financial goals.

A successful partnership means transparency, which is why we charge a flat percentage rate. We do not win your business with a low teaser rate and then try to recoup our expenses with hidden fees. With our stewardship approach to business, you are in good hands with us.

Our accounting team tracks all income and expense statements and will prepare all sales tax payments and reporting. They work with each Rental Manager to set and monitor progress to revenue goals, prepare financial statements, and coordinate payment collection and prompt monthly reporting to our owners.

We are committed to superior service. We believe every person who calls us should connect with a real, live member of our staff. Our friendly, well-trained, and highly motivated Vacation Specialists ensure that both our guests’ and owners’ expectations are always met or exceeded.

Newman-Dailey is committed to the Emerald Coast; we represent properties only in Walton and Okaloosa Counties. Unlike many other property management companies, we do not place your property in competition with other destinations. Our focus is solely local.

Stewardship is paramount: We strive for a superior standard of cleanliness and maintenance—our guests expect it and your investment deserves it. Our full-time Housekeeping Managers ensure that your home or condo is kept in top Our Partnership and Commitment condition inside and out. They oversee a loyal and dedicated team of cleaning professionals as well as a team of inspectors who perform a rigorous thirty-five-point inspection on every unit after each stay. Additionally, our team responds to all guest maintenance requests. We oversee all contracted services, such as pool maintenance, pest control, lawn service, and warranty work.
