Darik Eaton | Managing Partner
Darik is a self-taught student of the Vacation Rental Industry. His journey started with a purchase of a single condo in Downtown Seattle, which quickly became a company managing nearly 50 properties. When told to expect 8 nights in the off season of February, he achieved 22 nights in the first month of operating.
Darik takes a scientific approach measuring everything from the effects of interior design, views, amenities, cleaning fees and pricing on occupancy and income. By taking such an approach, he is able to do what is often considered impossible and that is creating cash flow positive investments for his clients with Vacation Rentals.
