"I brought my client to his first [Short Term Rental Association] meeting as he just purchased his first short term property in Muskegon. He was so thrilled with all of the good information, he signed up for a membership on the spot!"

—Ian Bowyer

"Had a traditional rental and changed it to a short-term rental and got started immediately with 3x the rent!"


—Member from the Muskegon, MI Area

"Thanks for starting the STR group. I have been looking for networking opportunities with other STR owners and managers. There are a lot of things in managing STR that makes it more of a hospitality industry than a RE industry. But at the same time it is very rewarding."

—Dan from the Traverse City, MI Area

"I recently purchased my first short term rental. I quickly found myself having many questions and not many resources to turn to. My realtor brought me to a meeting of the Short Term Rental Association. After listening to the topics being discussed and networking with other members, I decided to join that day!"

—Mitchell Wolfe
