Started with BookedHosts in 2019 and they have helped me through all the toughest times, including covid. Their professional, high-quality, caring and loyal staff have showed me time and time again how easy it is to own multiple properties while being a full-time mom and lawyer. I couldn’t be more thankful to be able to trust a team in handling everyday tasks and those once-in-a-while difficult ones.
