Orlando Property Management Services
What Separates Us From Our Competitors?
The simple answer is bookings! We produce more bookings than our competition. In 2019, we did not have one vacation home, condo, or townhouse rented out for less than 220 nights. In fact, most of our vacation homes were occupied between 240 and 260 nights annually.
Helping Each Other During Hard Times
More importantly, in April and May of 2020, we did not charge any of our homeowners’ management fees for those 2 months. No other management company in Orlando can say that. We still looked after the properties, but since we were under a rental ban for these 2 months we felt it was our way of giving back to our owners.
How Do We Produce When Other Property Managers Can’t?
Simple, if you research other management companies you will find that they all get their bookings from VRBO, HomeAway, Airbnb, etc. While these are all great websites and they get a ton of traffic, you cannot rely upon them solely for your only source of bookings. The last time I was on HomeAway, I found over 26,000 vacation homes near Walt Disney World®. This is overwhelming to the guest and the only ones who are getting year-round business from these websites are the owners who are the low-cost providers or the ones that have decorated their houses to the nines and still offer their homes offered at a greatly discounted price.
We are different; ever since our humble beginnings in 1993 we have run our own marketing platform. In fact, today our marketing platform is a 7-prong approach that is designed to have guests stay in our Orlando vacation homes and Orlando hotels year round. In 2019, our 7 prong marketing approach produced over $5,000,000 in vacation home rentals and over $17,000,000 in Walt Disney World® tickets sold.

Music Row in Nashville
started helping guests plan their Orlando vacation in 1993 out of a small office on Music Row in downtown Nashville, TN. Back then, we went by our legal corporate name, Affordable Travel of Orlando. Our business model then and it still is today pretty simple, we book hotel rooms and vacation homes for guests who are looking for a deal.
One of the Largest Hotel Wholesalers
In as short as 18 months after helping our first guest book their vacation, we became the largest wholesaler for Holiday Inn Nikki Bird Resorts and currently today we work with 17 different Orlando hotel properties. We are one of the largest hotel wholesalers at each one of these 17 hotels.
Vacation Home Operation in Orlando
In 2001, one of the hotel general managers we work with left to become a general manager of a very large vacation home operation here in Orlando. He talked me into offering his Orlando vacation homes to our clients. I sure am glad we did as today over 65% of our sales are in our large product category, which consists of vacation homes, condos, and townhouses.
Resort Home Network
We started managing vacation homes in 2006 under Resort Home Network, and we are continuing to grow that area of our business even to this day. From 2013 – 2020, we were awarded “Best Orlando Travel Agency and Booking Site” for 5 consecutive years, by the Orlando Award Program.

Home Owners Testimonials
We spend most of our time in the UK and were having a lot of problems trying to rent out our Davenport property from afar. When the renters had problems, it was always so stressful being in different time zones, long-distance calls, all of it. Now we work with you, never think about it, and get a check every month. Thanks!
We signed up for the guaranteed 12 days rent per month and we stay for the 20 days a month our property is generally rented. We have also noticed lower maintenance costs compared to other companies.
Tried The Resort Home Network because my old rental company was gouging me with maintenance fees. When you explained your business model is about getting the property rented as opposed to making money off of repairs, we were happy to sign up. It’s 2 years later and I plan to stick with you.
