VTrips, the parent company of Resort Collection by Southern Vacation Rentals, is one of the fastest-growing vacation rental management companies in the United States. I got into this business because I was dissatisfied with the way my own rental property was being managed. With my background in leadership and internet marketing, I knew I could do a better job of it…and now I manage more than 7,000 vacation properties in resort communities throughout Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, South Carolina, Maryland, New Mexico, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. 

Our goal is to help you make a profit on your rental property by delivering more bookings than our competition. It’s as simple as that. 

The Internet dominates consumers’ search for rental properties, and we are staffed with experts in search engine optimization (SEO), digital marketing, and social media. Our websites are attractive and easy to use, with beautiful high-resolution photography, detailed property descriptions, more than 50,000 guest reviews (the negative as well as the positive!), and 100% safe checkout. But many guests still feel more comfortable working directly with an agent, which is why we maintain a large, knowledgeable staff of vacation specialists and offer longer hours (including weekends) than our competition. Phone calls and emails are answered promptly, and our follow-up and service are second to none. 

Both our rental guests and our property owners are delighted with our service, and they tell their friends about us. Word-of-mouth marketing and a large guest database are our most valuable sources of new business. 

If VTrips sounds like the company you want to manage your rental property, please contact us. We will be more than happy to talk with you about how partnering with us can maximize your rental income.
