Telluride Rental Property Managers Provide Local and Expert Care
iTrip Vacations® Telluride started in 2017, but the company’s co-owner, Chris Reap, and business partner, Holly Svendsen, have been in property management since 2007. This experience has helped Chris and his team become one of the top Telluride rental property managers for boutique-level service and personal care.
Telluride Rental Property Managers Deliver Five-Star Service
“I ended up in Telluride, Colorado, 20 years ago as a career chef, and started property management as a side gig,” said Chris Reap, iTrip Vacations Telluride co-owner. “After recognizing the need for such a business and local interest in short-term rentals, we evolved into iTrip Vacations Telluride.”
The iTrip franchise opportunity provided Reap the tools he needed to take their side-gig and turn it into a trusted small business in Telluride. The company now has a worldwide marketing reach, sophisticated technology that adapts to industry changes, proven business processes, and automation that improves the overall customer experience.
“We started with iTrip in May of 2017,” recalled Reap. “iTrip was an opportunity for us to expand our existing property management business into Telluride’s short-term rental market. The brand has brought overall recognition and growth to our existing business. We are now recognized as one of the top boutique rental property management companies in Telluride.”
Short-term Rental Management in Telluride
Part of this recognition comes from the personal touch that Reap provides to vacation rental homeowners and guests in Telluride. Due to the focus on personal attention, customers receive the service they deserve and security each home needs. Clients have the iTrip team’s cellphone numbers and direct email addresses, so they avoid the headaches of call centers and customer service reps.
“As local Telluride rental property managers, we bring peace of mind to homeowners by offering attention to detail and care for their homes not provided by other companies in the area,” said Reap. “We also love sharing great properties in a great destination while showing guests a special time and help them feel more like a local.”
This peace of mind also extends to the daily operations and the time it takes to manage a short-term rental in Telluride. iTrip Telluride handles everything from preparing homes for guest arrival to paying taxes, advocating against unfair regulations, gathering guest reviews and uploading the property on major listing sites. However, that’s just the beginning of the full-service program.
“Our background in hospitality sets us apart from other rental management companies, and we have operated as a property management company for more than 15 years,” explained Reap. “Years of experience in world-class hotels and property management allow us to recognize and execute on the details while providing a custom level of guest experiences that are unmatched in Telluride.”
