“The opportunity to travel elsewhere has been amazing. No more sorting through rentals for something suitable and well kept, and being disappointed. All of the Elite Destination Homes are of such high quality that they take your breath away, and the Concierge reception makes traveling to a new place a wonderful experience…and so easy to arrange, since Elite does ALL the work! We’re looking forward to our next trip.”
“We value you (Elite), your relationships, professionalism, and keeping your eye on the ball. We’ve worked with other rental agencies but no one at your level.”
“Elite has generated significant rental income. We like their approach to marketing that spans multiple channels and multiple markets. A lot of rental management companies represent a lot of properties in one market, so they end up generating less income for each property. We also appreciate the timely accounting.”
