ResortQuest Vacation Rentals

QuestPerks is another important part of the program

Effective July 31, 2008, ResortQuest and Interhome will enter into a partnership to create the largest vacation rental management network in the world. ResortQuest and Interhome will continue to operate independently under their respective brand names, providing the ultimate in vacation rental product, service, quality and selection to customers and homeowners alike.

“A global alliance between ResortQuest and Interhome is an extraordinary benefit for anyone interested in vacation rentals,” says ResortQuest’s CEO, Park Brady. “Our goal is to provide vacation rental customers with the best experience, regardless of where they want to travel. That means opening up both our web sites and comprehensive booking systems to customers throughout the world.”

“In today’s economic market, the United States is a very desirable destination for European travelers,” adds Brady. “This partnership will broaden both ResortQuest’s and Interhome’s global presence, which will result in more choices for our guests and an increase in international business for our homeowners.”

Interhome Group CEO, Simon Lehmann, comments, “This cooperation agreement is another major milestone on our way to becoming the market leader in Europe by 2010. Interhome and ResortQuest are ideally suited to each other. We share a like-minded philosophy, and this is reflected in our respective portfolios –- superior quality properties available year-round in a wide range of holiday destinations. Unlike our main competitors, we also offer added value through our extensive networks of local service offices with on-site staff.”

New initiatives and expansion have been a focus of ResortQuest over the past twelve months. In December 2007, they launched the ResortQuest Partner Program. This program allows property management companies to partner with ResortQuest and benefit from its strong online presence and web marketing. Partners have the advantage of quality link building, better search rankings, shared best practices, and enhanced homeowner perks. The new partnership with Interhome greatly enhances this competitive advantage.

“QuestPerks is another important part of the program,” says Park Brady. “It provides ResortQuest, ResortQuest Partners, and Interhome homeowners with vacation rental discounts across the entire ResortQuest/Interhome network. Even small, local vacation management companies can now offer their homeowners terrific vacation rental discounts in popular destinations ranging from Aspen to Hilton Head to Switzerland and beyond.”
