COMPANY OVERVIEW:

This opportunity in Birmingham, Alabama, might be an excellent career move for you if you're an experienced handyperson with great leadership skills.

Patriot Family Homes is a place where people come first, and we take pride in our work. Founded in 2018 by US Army Veteran Joe Riley, Patriot Family Homes was created to assist in helping meet the need for affordable, reliable housing in the South, particularly near military bases.

Since then, we have grown from a handful of homes to 500 properties in 25+ markets with 75 employees, offering services to clients in:

  • Property Management
  • Lease to Us Programs
  • Management Support
  • Temporary Housing Relocation

Additionally, we are nearing the end of a capital raise that will allow us to buy an additional 1,000 homes within the next two years. This will require hiring another 100 employees over that time frame, making us the nation's largest owner-operated chain of short-term rentals. We plan to expand further to 25,000 homes globally over the next decade. The career growth opportunities are massive.

But, most importantly, as veterans, we understand the importance of “home,” and our team works each and every day to provide that feeling through exemplary service. When you become a team member at Patriot Family Homes, you will become a part of our work family, where we strive to ensure you always feel supported and valued for the sacrifices you make as we continue to grow in excellence.
