I have heard more than rumblings about poor Property Management on the Caye. Is the island to small for a Better Business Bureau type site?

Don't need one. If somebody is doing a poor job they won't be able to stay in business for long.

Absentee owners who don't ask for feedback from renters or fail to question their paperwork /trumped up charges also help some companies stay in business.

Which is why sensible people ask for referrals and use the services of companies that have good reputations.

There are always scammers, dead beats and dishonest or inefficient companies around - but they really don't last long.

There are some completely honest and open ones here and some bad ones, much as you'd find anywhere. And the odd totally dishonest one. Ask for advice from established people here for who to go with.

Some do last a long time. I am not an absentee owner and when I did my homework I found that people were hesitant to say anything negative. Small Island and all. That is why I thought BBB might work. A place people could go to without any retrbution against them. I am a believer in professional ethics whether I wear a suit or shorts. Thank you everyone for the comments.
