    EP57: Homerun Hospitality with Jesse and Emily Cole

    EP57: Homerun Hospitality with Jesse and Emily Cole

    This is probably the most unexpected podcast we've ever published. It features a couple, Emily and Jesse Cole, who epitomize a lot of vacation rental hosts using Airbnb to build a real estate portfolio. But that's the end of where the Cole's are normal. They also own a baseball team. Where the *MALE* cheerleaders dance on dugouts, kids find signed baseballs hidden like easter eggs, and tickets ($18) include food and drink.

    Tim Cafferty of Outer Banks Blue Realty in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina is one of the most admired and respected professional managers in the world. Tim’s region is something of a mecca for short term rentals in the USA, but when Tim started the business, he wasn’t expecting it to take off the way it did. Tim’s stand-up personality and emphasis on relationships are quintessentially “all of us” -- Tim is the hospitality professional we all aspire to be.

    EP54: Doing Things Properly with Tammi Sims

    Tammi Sims is the VP of Customer at Properly, an industry-leading cleaning app with a host of deeper applications. Perhaps more importantly, Tammi (along with her partner Alex Nigg) are visionary vacation rental leaders: they identified a need for this solution way back before anyone could even name the problem.

    Listen as we explore Tammi’s backstory, her borderline-obsession with small details, and some of her concerns and wishes for the future of this vacation rental movement.
