Karl founded Great Dwellings following years of professional experience in real estate in the Washington DC area. Taking his love for travel and hosting, he began Great Dwellings because he knows many people could be earning from their living spaces but they don’t have the time to get things started themselves—let alone worry about all the details along the way.

Combining his professional expertise in real estate and personal experience and success hosting with HomeAway, VRBO and Airbnb himself, Karl can help you maximize your potential for earnings and get the results you want. With professional short term rental property management, you’ll get the most out of your furnished rental listing through proven methods that work.

If you’re ready to see how Karl and his expert team can help you achieve success with this growing movement, register today and let’s get started!
