Thanks for Visiting has always been about short-term rentals

Annette and Sarah met at a Columbus, Ohio City Council Meeting fighting for their right to host homes on Airbnb. The two shared a belief that the short-term rental industry needs hosts to be more hospitable. Every resource they'd come across in growing their own businesses was purely profit driven - and "heads in beds" just isn't their style.

We had to figure out a lot of stuff on our own and now we want to give you the behind-the-scenes look we tried to find when we started. Thanks for Visiting is like Hospitality Prep School for the Airbnb stager or host. You'll find resources to help you host with heart and improve your processes and systems.

Sarah has been an Airbnb Superhost since 2013. She started her journey in NYC renting out a basement suite in her own home. Now, she owns 6 Airbnbs and operates a boutique hosting business, Stay Awhile Hosting Co.

Her rentals have been featured on Airbnb's Instagram and blog, the Washington Post, Homes.com, and other outlets.

Sarah has a strong design and hospitality background. Pair that with her love of real estate and construction and it makes her an ideal host for short-term rentals.

Annette partners with real estate investors on short-term rentals. She earned Superhost status by putting the guest first and creating memorable loft spaces in downtown Columbus.

Her spaces are sought after not only by guests, but also businesses looking for gorgeous spaces for brand shoots.

Annette's skill in operations helped grow two businesses from the ground up to become multi-million dollar companies. She manages four short-term rentals and offers support to newbie host hopefuls.
