About This Episode

Meet Jamie Lane, Vice President of Research at AirDNA.

After spending a decade at CBRE, one of the country’s largest American commercial real estate services and investment firm, Jamie was itching for a change…
He had always loved the hospitality space, and the short-term rental space in particular, so when he got a call from Scott Shatford the founder of AirDNA about joining the team, Jamie couldn’t say no.
Tune in to hear Jamie’s thoughts on: 
  • How savvy STR hosts should be using pricing strategies to increase their occupancy rates
  • How STR hosts should balance OTAs and the building of their own brands
  • As well as his hot takes on the future of travel and hospitality
