With 15 years of experience in the Rental Management business on the shores of México, Barbara Hitos Fájer decided to start her own company, founding Experience Vacation Rentals in 2012.

They differentiate themselves from a typical Property Management Company (who only looks after the psychical aspects of properties) by taking care of all the marketing, reservations, collect the deposit and final balance, rental agreements, concierge services, guest communication (before and after reservation) and follow up.

Having their site in English and Spanish allows them to presents themselves as a bilingual company and make business with more people around the globe.
