How We Got Started

In 2001 we began a vacation rental business in Panama City Beach. For a few years, everything was rather informal helping a small group of friends in one condominium resort who were too busy with their work schedules, businesses and personal lives to effectively manage their vacation rental remotely.

Every year word of mouth referrals from friends and realtors brought a few more homeowners to ECDI who were not satisfied with their own self-managing efforts or the on-site management company’s results. In early 2008 ECDI was formally incorporated. By the end of 2008, 30 homeowners had joined ECDI and additional staff was needed.

In February 2009 two team members were added to the ECDI staff, one with 15 years of office and customer service experience and a vacation rental manager working in Panama City Beach since 1997.
