Stay humble and work hard - Moriya Rockman, Co-Host of the Hospitable Host and Founder of Triangle Luxury, Smiling House Luxury and Villa Tracker. She fell in love with hospitality by chance when she immigrated to the Swiss Alps with her husband. There they had this very old villa where she hosted a friend; her friend introduced her to Airbnb and told her to put it on the market. And then things just snowballed from there - fast forward to today, Moriya has been able to build an empire from scratch with a hybrid management model, serving thousands of clients and helping thousands of investors.
Luxury is all about authenticity not just location, but taking into account the environment, the guests’ privacy, and design altogether is what separates Moriya from the pack. How did she achieve it all with comfortability and a focus on making the property as welcoming as possible. The interesting part is, they operate as OTAs not property managers, with over 140 destinations and 33 countries, and those numbers just keep growing. They are not only disrupting the industry, but also dominating the short term luxury space. Nothing less from the Shorty’s 2020 Pioneer Awardee herself. Tune in to how Moriya achieved this and how they ‘submerged into tech’ that really catapulted them into industry giants. But for Moriya it’s simple, her goal is to make the world a better place with hospitality, one smile at a time, and one experiment at a time.
