Our Clients Love Our 360° Expertise —
Partnering with AJL and Raincatcher was the ideal choice for our team. With Raincatcher’s mastery of transacting businesses and AJL’s unparalleled expertise in the vacation rental industry, we were guided step by step through the process and never had to worry that something would be misunderstood or overlooked. This was our first time navigating the unfamiliar process of selling a business, and I can say unequivocally that I would recommend the Raincatcher AJL team and would not hesitate to partner with them in the future.
- Billy Quaranto, Co-Founder and President AllSet
"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
“Our experience with Simon and the team at AJL has been exceptionally rewarding since day one. By taking advantage of their network and expertise in the vacation rental industry, they have helped Moving Mountain to achieve the optimization of business growth by applying an ongoing strategic consultancy to enable an efficient and profitable scaling of the business.
I can think of no other group with the equivalent knowledge and deep understanding of the vacation rental industry."
- Robin Craigen, Co-Founder & CEO of Moving Mountains
"We sold our vacation rental company in Hilton Head after over 25 years in business using Raincatcher. After unsuccessfully trying to sell our business through several industry-specific brokers, we engaged Raincatcher. The team at Raincatcher was diligent and professional and looked out for our best interests. We reached our goal of a successful exit and are enjoying retirement. I cannot say enough good things about this firm."
- Jim West, Former Owner of Sunset Rentals

From Our Leaders
“A challenge 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 Co-Owner & 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.
