What Sets Us Apart
There is nothing worse than feeling like you are nothing more than a number on an accountant’s spreadsheet or feeling that the people who are supposed to help you are just looking to make a quick buck at your expense. Well, we can assure you this will never be the case at Porter. This is because we understand that the vacation home is not ours, but yours! Our job is not to try to make the most off of you, nor is it our job to micromanage everything and push you to the side. Our job is to help you make your investment take off and ensure that you are able to enjoy all the perks of vacation rental ownership without all the stress. For this same reason, our profit margin isn’t the center of our focus, but rather you the owner, and the guests who are looking for the vacation of a lifetime.
Furthermore, we don’t just hire someone off the street and then sit them in front of a phone. We ensure that each of our staff members is trained fully and thoroughly to be able to navigate any situation that comes up. As well, they aren’t just trained on how to work the system and get things done, but also how to properly interact with our guests and owners, thus ensuring that our closely held values are as important to our employees as they are to you.
We are all locals and live in the area. What this means is that your home and investment aren’t being watched and managed by someone thousands of miles away who has never seen it in person. Rather, we are here in person should we ever need to stop by, and it allows us to keep a close eye on things and ensure that your investment is as protected as we would want our own.
One thing that also sets us apart is that we truly have been doing this for a while and thus have become more than familiar with all the subtle nuances of the field, thus saving you the trouble of learning via trial and error. Thanks to our experience, we are fully aware of the various methods for securing payments, what works, what doesn’t, what’s secure, and what’s a liability. We know all the regulations, and we know how one must navigate them. We also have plenty of experience managing vacation rentals, and thus we know all the little things in the world of maintenance that an eye must be kept on and which will save many headaches in the process. So, when you partner with Porter, you are not only getting a property management team but also all our combined experience as well.
