Lucas Piper


Lucas started his vacation rental career how many people have, with his own home. He quickly realized that he was able to mix his two passions, helping people and traveling. Graduating from the University of Minnesota Twin-Cities, Lucas began his career working as a counselor with homeless youth. With a previous experience of studying abroad in Venezuela, he set out on a journey to travel in Mexico, Central & South America. He backpacked for almost two years while stopping in Guatemala for nine months to volunteer with the indigenous Mayan community. Fast forward to today. Lucas is now able to help provide 5-star experiences and memories to travelers and families at our beautiful properties. He prides himself in the relationships he builds with the our wonderful owners/investors and has a heart for hospitality for our guests.

Lucas is a leader in the short-term rental industry and loves mentoring and helping others on the path of financial freedom through real estate and vacation rentals.
