Peace of Mind for Owner and Renter
First and foremost, Coastal Connections’ Owner, Sheri Blackstone, strives to give owners peace of mind. Owners can rest assured that their property will be taken care of, well maintained, and loved as if it were her family’s home. Sheri truly enjoys the opportunity to get to know the owners and form a comfortable relationship. Property owners can be as involved as they wish, or not at all.
