Vacasa Vacation Rentals
What does your company do and how does it benefit REALTORS®?
Vacasa is the leading full-service vacation rental management company in North America. We manage homes in 34 U.S. states, plus Canada, Belize, and Costa Rica, and host over 2 million guests per year.
Vacasa was born in 2009, when our founder Eric Breon struggled to find a property manager that could offer both professional care and strong financial returns for a family vacation home here on the Washington coast. Vacasa brings a forward-thinking approach to the vacation rental industry—using technology and data to enable local teams to care for homes and guests, while maximizing revenue for homeowners. The company quickly grew from one house here in WA to servicing homes across the country and beyond!
