About Us

Raised in central Florida with fathers working at the Kennedy Space Center, we both have a lifetime of fond memories of beach days, beach escapes, beach get-a-ways, and fun-filled family beach vacations. Our love of the ocean spans decades as does our romance (high school sweethearts, fellow UF graduates, married 30+ years with four children). Jeff has owned an Allstate Insurance Agency since 1990, achieving the highest company award of Top in Country. Soon after having their fourth child (4 in 4 years), Gina “retired” from her actuarial position to assist Jeff and raise their lively bunch. With a recent house full of teenagers, Gina likewise knows a thing or two about particular “customers”. Pooling very different skill sets but very common passions, we make perfect partners. We are truly blessed, loving what we do and loving doing it together. Like Henry Ford said, “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.” We have built our home on faith, family, and fun; and strive to build this company on the same.

In 2004, we purchased our first beachfront condo as both a family retreat and investment property. It didn’t take long for us to realize that we were better equipped to manage our property than the on-site office. Applying our past work experiences, years of travel, and a high standard of excellence; we  were soon doubling our previous rental income.

After poor experiences with both the complex office, as well as local real estate offices and success managing  our own vacation rental, the decision was made to start a vacation rental property  management business. Jeff cofounded a successful management company on the East Coast of Florida. After almost 5 years of ownership, Jeff grew the company from scratch to over 120 properties accommodating over 2000 guest reservations in 2012 (the largest vacation rental management company in the market area).

Through years of memorable family vacations, periodic romantic getaways, and even a company retreat in the StPeteClearwater area; we fell in love with the sugary white sand, mellow waves, coastal charm, and breathtaking sunsets. With some of Jeff’s family living in the area, it seemed a logical choice to start a company covering the StPeteClearwater markets for our next location. In our short time in this new market, we have achieved phenomenal results for our owners (booking out the slow season and demanding higher rates). Since founding Teeming Vacation Rentals (the parent company of StPeteClearwaterVacationRentals.com) in spring of 2013, we have grown the company to roughly 225 vacation rental properties, accommodating more than 6,100 guest reservations and doing over $8.1 million in total sales. We are so excited about this market and its potential that we purchased our own condos both in Clearwater (Crescent Beach Club I 14A) and Indian Shores (Pipers Run 8). Now we are not only fellow owners, but also owners in our new location.

 

Our aim in our company is to build long-term relationships with both guests and property owners. We are committed to excellence, continually assessing our processes and refining our strategies. As avid travelers and vacation property owners, we understand the concerns of both guests and owners. We get it. Years of travel with a few mishaps convinced us of the importance of actually seeing the exact facilities before booking our vacation and the value of knowing a little about the location before arriving. Initiating the phrase ~ Look, Book, Know, GO!TM

See you at the beach!
