Who is Beach Reunion?
Beach Reunion was formed in 2003 by Jim and Alex Cochran who had been real estate investors in Destin since 1988. They had recently moved to Sandestin after living in Atlanta for 17 years where they ran House Smart, Inc., a home inspection business which they sold to a Fortune 500 company in 2004. They started Beach Reunion with two rental homes they built and owned on 30-A. Today Beach Reunion manages 30 homes in the Destin and South Walton areas of Florida. Get to know our office staff

Your Investment is Our Investment
When it comes to your home, we believe it is our duty to help you protect your investment. Our remote owners count on us to be their "eyes". The owner of Beach Reunion operated a home inspection company for more than 10 years and personally visits every home. We also conduct periodic inspections by a third party company. When major maintenance issues arise, we will be completely honest with you. We believe that absolute transparency is the only way to operate.
No Credit Card Fees or Administration Charges
Credit card fees and administration charges can really add up when you own a large home. Most credit card processing companies charge between 2 and 3% of every reservation and proprietary rental software companies can take up another 1 to 3%! Many area companies pass these charges on to the owners, but as a Beach Reunion owner, you will never pay these fees.
Beach Reunion Marketing
We aggressively market your property through online listings, SEO optimization, social media and much more! Our homes are listed on our website and more than 7 other sites such as Flip Key and VRBO. The only marketing charge our owners pay is an annual fee of $1200 to be listed on VRBO, Home Away, and VacationRentals.com. We do not just list your home on these websites, we optimize your listing and keep it current so that your property is ranked as high as possible and is seen by more potential guests. We have a marketing specialist on our full time staff who is always available to our owners.
We professionally photograph your property at no charge. Not only that; we keep our photographs updated. The days of seeing a 4 year old picture of your living room that was taken two sofas ago are finished!
Professional Property Videos
Beach Reunion will arrange for your property to be professionally filmed for use across all websites. The videos will also be used in various marketing campaigns and for advertisements paid for by Beach Reunion.
We have been involved with many transitions from a different management company to Beach Reunion. Our staff ensures that the turnover is smooth and headache-free for our new owners. We will work with your current management company and keep an open line of communication with them during the process. Our new owners are always shocked at how easy the transition was! Do not let the fear of changing management companies stop you from getting more out of your investment.
