From Masterleasing to Managing Short-Term Rentals in Sarasota (Ep442)

From Masterleasing to Managing Short-Term Rentals in Sarasota (Ep442)

In the beginning of 2020, Tia Castle had numerous masterleases but quickly found herself in quite the dilemma when she had no bookings due to the pandemic.

During this time she knew she had to make a change, and a big one.

Fast forward to today, Tia now manages family-friendly homes in Florida and runs CastleLux Rentals where she helps investors in their journey with vacation rentals. So, how did she go from masterleasing to short-term rentals during a pandemic and what has she learned from this big adjustment?

Tia is the founder of CastleLux Rentals, a vacation rental management company that helps investors to pinpoint their Airbnb vacation rental property. Her real estate journey started with her luxury Real Estate reality TV show, “Home and Castle TV”  that was broadcasted in Florida and Canada, showcasing rental properties and their famous owners.

On this episode of Get Paid for Your Pad, Tia joins me to share her journey from television production and journalism to managing short-term rentals for families, describing how Legends X STR Accelerator has helped her during the huge transition.

She walks us through the transition she experienced not only from her reality TV show to real estate but also from masterleasing to short-term rentals and what she has learned along the way.

Listen in for Tia’s insight on finding the right market and rental property for you and the network and opportunities that she has benefited from with the STR Legends community, especially during the struggle of the pandemic.
