Jessi Trout, Rental Services Manager

Jessi Trout, Property Manager

I began working in the Vacation Rental Industry in 2012, and fell in love! Every day proves new, different and exciting! I first started in housekeeping and worked my way up to front desk. Now I am a property manager ready to assist our guests with reservations and our owners with property management. In starting from the “bottom” I have a complete understanding of the process and what it takes to improve your stay with us and how to make vacation rental property ownership carefree for our owners. I am thrilled to be a part of the awesome team at Emerald Beach Properties!

Karen Trout, Housekeeping Manager

Karen Trout, Assistant Property Manager

I began working in the hospitality/vacation rental industry in 2011. I started out as a housekeeper and progressed to the front desk, then to inspector, and then to housekeeping management. As the Assistant Property Manager, I assist guests with reservations and all aspects of their stay. I supervise our cleaning staff and inspectors to make sure our housekeeping is above and beyond expectations. I love helping guests and taking care of them to give them everything they need for the best vacation possible in our little piece of paradise. I am proud to be on the team at Emerald Beach Properties.

I bring 25 years of varied construction experience to Emerald Beach Properties. My first job was building houses in the local area. Over the years I have come to know condos inside and out and I am glad to apply my skills and knowledge to my work at Emerald Beach Properties. I know how important it is to keep our guests and owners happy. I take great pride in making sure everything is working the way it should so you will have a safe, trouble-free vacation!
