I have worked in the vacation rental industry in Panama City Beach, FL for the past 8 years and I am excited to be part of the Emerald Beach Properties team. I love working with property owners to help them maximize their investments and with guests to be sure they have an enjoyable stay.

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 have worked in construction most of my life and now I am happy to be taking care of all of Emerald Beach Properties’ condos and homes. My focus is on preventative maintenance to keep both our owners and guests happy with the condition of our properties. I also enjoy doing special projects that improve our properties to make them even nicer. Whenever there is a maintenance issue, just give us a call and we’ll take care of it as quickly as possible!
