Jan Covey new Partner at Crystal Mountain Sunspot Vacation Rentals (News item #253 published: 03/01/11)
Jan Covey has been a fixture around the Crystal Mountain Ski Area since she fell in love with Mount Rainier place years ago. Now she has taken over the Business of the local Sunspot Vacation Rental ManagersSunspot Vacation Rental Managers office.
Just a year ago Sunspots acquired the Mount Rainier Vacation Rentals business and now, with Covey's oversight, the business is growing, guests are arriving in droves and the property owners are thriving. The company handles several hundred vacation rental cabins, condos, chalets and houses in the Northwest United States including Mount Rainer.
"I have been looking for a sizable business that would allow me to remain in the mountains and was delighted to find Sunspots," says Covey. "Taking care of people has been part of every job I have ever had and property management is all about that."
The Vortex is a network of Vacation Rental Managers in a dozen Northwest Locations, including Sunspots; plus Hawaii. It recently entered the Lake Tahoe Californiaand Bend Oregon market as well as is seeking partners in other West Coast vacation destinations.
"Our business model allows managers to spend their time managing properties, owners and guests instead of doing paperwork," notes Penny Taylor, Vice President of Sunspots."We centralize reservations, advertising, accounting, websites and even photography so they don't have to be chained to a phone."
Four years ago the network invested heavily in software, programmers and technology which allows everyone to be far more efficient than other managers. "We get rid of 90% of the busy work and let manager's focus on the important things," said Salman Arshad, the companies head website designer and programmer.
"I am continually amazed at how inefficient other software packages are. Our work is far more than just websites and online booking."
For guests the network has created a central place with an ever growing list of fine properties. For property owners, it means wider distribution, greater advertising and managers who can be responsive 24 hours a day.
Sunspots was started in 1999 and has grown consistently. The company also provides sales services for other property managers and a-la-carte services for Rent-By-Owners who many need only bookings, cleaning or other services.
