Seminar: "Kickstarting Your AirBNB Listing (Policies & Procedures)", Jarrett Smith & Sylvia Tijo, 9 am $$

Super Saturday Training Event:

"Kickstarting Your Airbnb Listing (Policies & Procedures)"

presented by Jarrett Smith & Silvia Tijo

Saturday, March 10

9 am - 2 pm

What You Will Learn at the Event

At this seminar you will learn through the experience and best practices of other Airbnb hosts, including Jarrett & Silva, to overcome starting barriers and shorten the learning curve involved in maximizing a host’s earning potential.

Jarrett & Silvia set the example of how anybody, even with zero short-term rental experience, can profit from the Airbnb platform. Not investing in Airbnb training increases the potential of receiving a first bad review and permanently cripples the future earning-opportunity of using the Airbnb platform.

About the Instructors

Silvia Tijo and Jarrett Smith are GaREIA members, and hosts on the Airbnb platform, which they consider a positive and profitable experience. They absolutely believe that the web platform fulfills the Airbnb solution pitched in 2009, which stated that it is a C2C platform in which users can save money when traveling, make money when hosting, and share culture through local connections to the city.

Silvia, an international student from Colombia who is completing her Ph.D. studies at Georgia Tech, loves the interaction with Airbnb guests to learn more about the U.S. and to polish her English.

Jarrett, a translator, uses the additional income and time gained from Airbnb hosting to pursue their long-term real estate strategy. Together, they enjoy learning how systems work, personally testing processes, and then sharing knowledge with others. They believe that sometimes nudging each other with information is all we need to get-up-and-go. Their Airbnb listings operate under the same mentality of implementing a streamlined process. Now that they have an Airbnb hosting process in place, they are ready to take their experience to the next level by SHARING THEIR AIRBNB SYSTEM.
