Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Lorie Olson and I am the owner of Vacation Rentals Siesta Key. I grew up outside of DeKalb, Illinois and later moved to Michigan, near Ann Arbor, where I worked for Ford Motor Company for 15 years. Since then I have resided in Sarasota, Florida and received licensing in the hospitality field as a Community Association Manager. As a home owner with a rental property in Michigan, I know what it takes to manage properties and have experience in the vacation rental field in Florida.
When moving to the area, I personally experienced the ups and downs with managing a home from out of state. It was out of this frustration with my own rental experiences, trying to work with a rental company, that I believed there must be a better way. This was the beginning of Vacation Rentals Siesta Key and Safe Watch Home Management. Now that my two children are grown, I have the time available to help those in the area who face the same challenges that I did with my rental home.
In the years that I have lived in Sarasota County, I have come to know the area very well. I am excited to have planted my roots here and am happy to have the opportunity to open a business in a place that I have grown to love and can call home.
I come to you with an extensive background in the hospitality industry. The hospitality industry has taught me the value and importance of building great professional relationships. I am hoping to continue to build this type of relationship with the owners in the Sarasota County area.
My goal as the owner of Vacation Rentals Siesta Key and Safe Watch Home Management is to help other home owners maintain and manage their vacation rentals or second homes so those properties continue to be a positive investment. I strive to provide an honest, consistent, knowledgeable, and trustworthy company that understands the importance of a personal touch in a very competitive market. I am not just here for the one time rental, but for a long term solution for any owner.
