Coasting Home was established as a new company in August 2003 by Cathleen Crosby, bringing prior 14 years experience managing a growing Gualala area rental program.
Cathleen is a licensed real estate broker, and maintains an active membership in several Realtor organizations at the local, State and National levels. Coasting Home is also a member of the Vacation Rental Managers Association (VRMA), National Property Managers Association (NARPM), and Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM).
Coasting Home, Inc. exists to provide professional management services to vacation home owners, great vacation experiences for our guests, and reliable property management for our long term landlords and tenants.
We currently represent over 70 properties (vacation homes and long-term rentals). We do not want to grow huge, or fast, so we consider each new account very carefully. Two major criteria drive our decision to sign on a new home: the home needs to be a desirable destination, and able to compete in today's rental market; and we have to feel that we can offer excellent service to the owner, based on the owner's expressed needs.
The final component to our mission and goals is to serve the community beyond our day-to-day business, as we support local youth and community activities.
Our region continues to grow and we've seen an explosive increase in property costs. There is a great need for dignified housing for the service sector, new families, educators and others who cannot see home ownership in their immediate future.
Thank you for allowing us to present this information. We will be pleased to hear from you should you choose to work with Coasting Home.
