Founded by Amy Hinote in 2012, VRM Intel was created as a tool for the fast-growing and rapidly-evolving vacation rental industry. Our mission is to provide relevant industry-specific news, information, and resources to help professionals build their businesses, to address the challenges and opportunities facing the industry, and to positively contribute to the vacation rental ecosystem.
In October of 2016, we launched VRM Intel Magazine, a quarterly publication which is mailed to thousands of vacation rental professionals. The magazine contains articles written by industry experts addressing property care, marketing, technology, human resources, revenue management, owner relations, guest services, and regulations.
In late 2016, VRM Intel went on the road with regional events that bring together industry thought leaders and local vacation rental providers. In the last year, VRM Intel Live! visited Wilmington, Destin, Outer Banks, Portland, Denver and Gatlinburg.
We recently added to our suite VRM Intel Dashboards, a benchmark reporting tool which allows vacation rental managers to compare their key business metrics with their local, regional, state and national markets.
