About This Episode

In just a moment you’ll meet Taylor Jones, Head of Acquisition at Superhost Labs

Taylor was working in sales when COVID hit.  A few weeks after the world shut down, Taylor’s job was put on a two-month pause and he knew he had to start looking for a new frontier.

Taylor had always dreamed of getting into real estate but had never quite known where to start. With newfound time on his hands, and with nowhere to go, he began Googling. 

After watching more than 200 hrs of YouTube videos, streaming a plethora of STR podcasts,  and reading through dozens and dozens of blog articles, Taylor finally pulled the trigger on his first-ever short-term-rental.

And while he didn’t know it at the time, this decision would ultimately upon up an entirely new career trajectory for Taylor. 

Tune in to hear the story behind how Taylor Jones became the Head of Acquisition at Superhost Labs, a short-term-rental investment startup, and became one of the leading voices on all things STRs on Twitter @MrJonesSTRs
