"Throughout our process of selling our large vacation rental companies in Colorado, [Raincatcher] showed expertise, ethics, and a true concern for our outcome. They aren't looking to make a quick buck, and they aren't desperate to get the deal done. They were patient and easy to work with as we walked through this big decision in our lives. They also took a huge burden off of us by guiding us thru due diligence, and some sticky situations that inevitably arise when selling a complicated company in this industry.

I recommend using Raincatcher highly for any vacation rental company owner who wants a fresh perspective, and looks to have an outcome to be proud of for years to come."

-Sarah Bradford, former Owner of Winter Park Lodging Company and Steamboat Lodging Company

From our Leaders

“One of the biggest challenges that entrepreneurs face when partnering with advisors is that most will try and force a small business through its sale process with little foresight or care. Both Raincatcher and AJL share the belief that small businesses deserve more. We couldn’t be more delighted to bring our skilled experience to the vacation rental industry, much less in partnership with one of its foremost global leaders.” -Jason Thomas, Raincatcher COO

“The vacation rental industry is highly fragmented, with fewer professional resources. We want to create value for business owners, advise on best strategic practises and create a solid framework for the industry. With this partnership, we can offer consulting, guidance, exit and succession planning, and now financial-hygiene services to our clients in the USA. It’s all about building value and not just about an exit.” -Simon Lehmann, AJL Founder & CEO.
