How many years have you been in the short-term rental industry and how did you get started?
4, My husband and I were doing house-flipping when we met Jeff Brown, and he introduced us to the new Airbnb scene. We quickly realized how profitable it could be with great staging, and began renovating and staging homes to list on Airbnb.
What do you find most rewarding about your career?
When the house is fully staged and I get to do a final walk-through and just experience the final stage of the renovation process.
What is your favorite rental property you have and why do you love it?
Wizards Way. It’s easily our most viral home and it’s extremely likable by our guests.
What’s the craziest story you have from hosting?
The craziest story is when we were hosting in Joshua Tree, California and we had a super crazy party where they were naked dancing around a fire, playing tribal drums, and singing at 2 am with neighbors firing guns in their direction. It was an absolute nightmare.
What’s one “pro-tip” you’d be willing to pass on to the community?
Don’t let people dance naked in the backyard of your Airbnb.
What’s the most recent item that you can remember that you’ve ordered from HostGPO?
Mass quantities of pillows!
What would you tell others about whether to join HostGPO?
HostGPO doesn’t cost you anything to use, and it saves you tons of money, so it’s a win-win for us.
