Ep #256: Upleveling the Vacation Rental Design Industry with Jessica Duce

Right before this year’s High Point Market, there’s something amazing going on that I find super interesting: the Vacation Rental Design Summit. If you’re anything like me, this industry has been on your mind lately, so I’m unpacking all of it with the brains behind the Vacation Rental Design Summit: Jessica Duce.

Jessica Duce has been in business for almost 20 years, and she’s bringing her creativity and expertise to residential and commercial projects across the country. Her foray into vacation rental design began in 2017 quite accidentally, but this learn-by-fire experience catapulted her into the short-term rental market and shifted the trajectory of her career.

Tune in this week to discover how you can get a piece of the vacation-rental pie, whether that’s designing spaces for others, investing your money in a property, or some of the other truly innovative ways to generate income in this industry. Learn how to incorporate sustainability in everything you do in the short-term rental industry.
