Born of a need, Personal Home Management began when Mary Casamassimo had constant requests for a service that catered to people with second homes in South Florida. These snowbirds had asked friends and family to look after their homes for years, and finally realized to receive the care and attention their property required, they had to call in a professional. Mary was already CAM licensed, and so began Personal Home Management.
Personal Home Management grew rapidly through word of mouth.The customer service Mary offered was second to none. Having been a snowbird herself, she knew the stress an ill-managed home could cause, and so her responsive and professional approach to all clients gained Personal Home Management a stellar reputation among snowbirds and realtors in the South Florida area.
In only a few short years her portfolio included a plethora of properties throughout Palm Beach County, consisting of condos, townhomes, villas, single family homes, and estates. Not only had the PHM’s portfolio increased steadily, but the types of services expanded. In addition to inspections for Snowbirds, Mary included a 24/7 concierge service, housekeeping, landscaping services, kitchen/bathroom renovations, stagings for realtors, short term vacation rental management…the services truly became limitless
