Stay Porter
September 26, 2023
Houston, Texas
Job Type
Salary: $60,000 - $85,000



At Porter, we prioritize healthy and professional communication, ensuring that all employees can communicate with each other so information is shared efficiently. We strive to provide everyone on our team feels welcome, heard, and like a family member.

Why We Stand Out:

As an Arizonan vacation rental company combining more than 20 years of experience, we share the benefits of our extensive knowledge with our clients. Not only do we provide full-service property management from maintenance to marketing, but we offer a team with an in-depth understanding of the business and the industry's constant changes.



Step into an exciting role with us as our Regional Business Development Representative.

In this critical position, you'll be a cornerstone of our forward-thinking team, tasked with driving business growth initiatives. This will require you to identify new market opportunities, foster strategic relationships, and expand our reach outside of the Arizonan vacation rental landscape and into Texas.

Your day-to-day will be a fast-paced mix of strategic planning and hands-on work. Typically, it could start by conducting market research and using insights to formulate strategies for expanding our vacation rental portfolio and building and nurturing relationships with key stakeholders. You might then transition to working closely with our customer service team to ensure exceptional guest experiences. Wrapping up your day could be reviewing and reporting on the performance of various initiatives.

As we grow in this new market, this role will also require you to oversee and manage the first ten new homes you bring on. This will consist of onboarding properties and performing operations tasks such as inspecting homes for guest pre-arrivals, coordinating repairs, scheduling vendors, and light maintenance.

As our Regional Business Development Representative, you can be confident that taking on this role promises not just a job but a rewarding journey of professional growth. You'll get ample opportunities to sharpen your business knowledge, immerse yourself in the evolving vacation rental industry, and develop your leadership skills.
