Ten years ago I founded Greatoceancondos.com when I was unable to find a technology forward rental manager in the New Smyrna Beach Area. Since that time my company has grown to become the largest vacation rental management company in the New Smyrna Beach Area. We are the only multi-complex online booking network around hosting almost 50 complexes! Our website combines complete views of each complex and unit, convenient booking and outstanding customer service together to make your beach vacation a great and memorable experience. Our management services keep up with our growing clientele, provide different rate schedules for holiday and off seasons combined with 24 hour customer service. After almost 10 years of ownership, I have grown the company from my single property to almost 300 properties accommodating over 6000 reservations per year. As a condo owner myself in NSB I “get” both sides for owners and guests. This unique “By an owner, for an owner” perspective is what sets us apart in the world of vacation rental management. Through internet marketing, Google AdWords and quick response times and unparalleled customer service, we have established ourselves as the leader of vacation rental management on the Central East Coast of Florida. Our trademarked phrase is “Look Before you Book” and our customers do! We are currently booking over $5,700,000 per year in rental revenue alone for our owners and creating memories that will last a lifetime for our guests. Call us today to become part of the Great Ocean Team. We look forward to serving you.
Jennifer Frankenstein-Harris, Owner
After growing up in South Florida and graduating from Florida State University in Tallahassee, I currently reside with my family in Central Florida. I have 5 children from middle school through college age and beyond and we are expecting our first grandchild in October of this year! In 2006 I was able to realize my dream of owning a condo on New Smyrna Beach. Though I had no experience in the “rental world,” I was very business minded. Applying my past work experiences, years of travel, and a high standard of excellence to managing my own vacation rental property, it wasn’t long before I began to see a 100% increase in my condo’s annual rental income. I soon realized that I was better equipped to manage my property than my complex’s on-site office. More importantly, through my own travel experiences, I understood the way that guests want to be treated. I understood how important it is to provide a home-away-from-home atmosphere that would draw families back to my property year after year. Now, after 10 years, here I am today with GreatOceanCondos.com managing almost 275 properties in the New Smyrna Beach and Greater Daytona Area- the largest vacation rental management company in our area.
Additionally, I have been a member of the Florida Vacation Rental Management Association since 2010. The success of my company and growth of my business has occurred in large part due to my memberships in not only the Florida VRMA, but the national VRMA as well. I have attended state conferences, regional conferences and national conferences consistently over the last 10 years. The wealth of knowledge I’ve gathered have enabled me to grow my business and serve my clients, both owners and guests, in the highest capacity. I have served on the Visit Florida Industry Relations committee, the Florida VRMA conference planning committee and the national VRMA conference planning and education committees as well as serving as an Ambassador for the national VRMA. I honored to have served the Florida VRMA as President-elect last year and preside as the current President of our state organization.
I am extremely passionate about what we do and how we do it here at Great Ocean Condos and Homes. My favorite words from my staff is “I have an idea”. Those ideas and our persistence has enabled us to serve our owners and guests in the highest capacity and made us what we are today. See you at the beach!
