Vacasa Launches Real Estate Network Connecting Vacation Home Buyers and Sellers with Agents Nationwide

Today, Vacasa,
the largest U.S. vacation rental management company, launched Vacasa
Real Estate, a network connecting leading real estate agents with buyers
and sellers of vacation properties. In addition to managing over 9,000
homes, Vacasa also sees over one million guests through its doors every
year, naturally creating a robust network of real estate clients.

“Over the past nine years, we’ve built strong relationships with our
homeowners and guests, offering them a trusted, full-service vacation
rental experience,” said Eric Breon, founder and CEO of Vacasa. “We’re
always looking at ways to provide more value to our customers. If
they’re ready to buy or sell, connecting them to the industry’s top real
estate agents is a natural next step in the Vacasa experience.”

Every year, nearly five percent of Vacasa homeowners sell their vacation
rental. The number of annual sales transactions involving Vacasa-managed
homes will continue to increase correlating with the company’s rapid
year-over-year growth. With a pipeline of motivated sellers combined
with guests interested in buying vacation homes, Vacasa Real Estate is
positioned to be a leading source of referrals for agents across the
country.

“Vacasa Real Estate has made connections to buyers and sellers in my
market that I would have never had access to before,” said Debbie Rush,
a Vacasa Expert Agent with Keller Williams. “These qualified clients are
ready to buy or sell. Plus, Vacasa provides me with the tools I need to
educate my clients to help them make the right investment, in the right
market, on the right vacation home.”

To help clients maximize their return on investment, Vacasa is bringing
the same data and technology-focused approach it pioneered in the
vacation rental industry to real estate. Real estate agents that qualify
as Vacasa Expert Agents will receive marketing and sales tools including:

“So far, we’ve seen tremendous interest in the program and we look
forward to adding even more top-tier agents as we expand our network,”
said Shaun Greer, senior director of real estate and a licensed agent.
“Operating at the center of the vacation rental industry enables us to
build fantastic partnerships that deliver even more value to customers.”

Vacasa Real Estate currently partners with agents from over 80 leading
real estate companies such as Berkshire Hathaway, Century21, Coldwell
Banker, Keller Williams, RE/MAX and Sotheby’s.
