Raleigh Airbnb co host

I help owners manage their Short Term Rental. I manage 19 on Lake Gaston. 3 in Raleigh and 7 at Banner Elk.

A little about me. I started Airbnb/VRBO my house 4 years ago. I did really well. Well enough that a friend asked me to manage theirs. I took their revenue in one year and grew it by 46%. I have gotten referrals and recommendations from many owners, and have grown this to a full time business.

I spend the night in every house.
I do a Google Doc that is shared with owners.
I communicate with owners on issues
I have cleaning teams and maintenance people
I am a member of the NC Airbnb Policy team
6 Facebook groups
Mastermind group
Dynamic pricing 12 hours of classes.
Track listings

One thing I do that is totally different is I set up the listings on Airbnb and VRBO in the owners name with payouts going to the owner. This way if you wanted to end our agreement you do not lose the listing and all the reviews.

My background is SEO (Search Engine Optimization) which is ranking websites. I use the same techniques to rank my houses very well, and they exceed expectations. I update listings very frequently and employ rank tracking software and dynamic pricing to drive results. I keyword optimize the listings.

My team and I work closely with our owners to be very successful.
