Testimonial:

Marisa loved her stay at this property so much, she said, “We loved our stay at Gretchen’s place in the Bywater SO much we ended up staying for 7 months! The Bywater is a quiet, artsy neighborhood with really excellent restaurants and nightlife within walking distance. We were also biking distance from the French Quarter (which is the perfect distance if you are going to be in New Orleans for longer than a weekend). The house was exactly as described and as seen in the photos. We loved the unobtrusive updates that made the house feel clean and modern while still preserving all the original charm of the historic New Orleans shotgun style. The one thing that doesn’t come across in the photos is how tall the ceilings are. We already miss our sweet house in the Bywater and our amazing host Gretchen!

News: Real estate is back. In a big way. Updated CHBO Property Portal

CHBO / Corporate Housing by Owner announces new updated CHBO / Corporate Housing Property Portal to serve growing demand for furnished residential rentals.

Enter Kimberly Smith, co-owner and principal of Colorado-based CHBO / Corporate Housing by Owner, a corporate housing property rental portal and founder of AvenueWest Corporate Housing and Avenue West Global Franchise who’s not just cautiously dipping a toe back into the post-recession real estate market with her 15 year old, multi-million dollar corporate housing companies she’s leading the charge and taking growing numbers of real estate investors, property owners and business travelers with her.   Corporate Housing Portal

“2014 is the year of the real estate investor,” says Smith. “I’m not interested in running a website that’s essentially a directory of corporate housing listings. What we’re doing at CHBO is much bigger. We’re seeing the growth of a new class of educated real estate investor. We see today as a time that real estate investment can and should be as accessible as trading stocks and those individuals who are able to connect their corporate housing rental properties with the business traveler are seeing much higher investment returns”.

Alpha Books, a division of the Penguin Group agrees. The publisher — knowing the real estate landscape had shifted and seeing a need for investment guidance – recently hired Smith to write and share her hard-earned knowledge with the rest of the world and so was born, The Idiot’s Guides: Making Money with Rental Properties.

Smith endorses the idea that more than ever before, today’s global business entrepreneurs must be agile, lean, savvy as well as unabashed authorities willing and eager to get knee-deep in the industry’s most current tech and virtual platforms which led her to launch CHBO’s most sophisticated website and web presence to date.

“I don’t see that there’s any choice but to change the face of how we do business. It’s simply not the same game or rules that existed seven years ago,” says Smith. “Even if my clients still believe in the long term value of real estate, it’s complicated and understandably daunting. But it’s our job at CHBO to be the most credible, reliable, secure easy-to-use property rental tool and system.  It’s not good enough to shout from the roof tops that corporate housing is a fantastic venture. We have to show investors how and why in 2014.”Rental Property Reviews

After a year-long revamp in consultation and design, CHBO’s newly-launched site features tools that make it easier for property owners to list residences and equips them with improved functionality such as insurance and payment portals, background checks and security. The site is more in keeping, “with the way we expect our world and lives to flow today,” as Smith puts it, “so that customers can integrate all facets of their investment on a seamless platform”.

Within the site, a new portfolio of membership packages has been created as well further simplifying the CHBO experience. “We’ve truly found the right balance between an extraordinary support staff in addition to the best technology available. It’s allowing our clients to be their most profitable in tandem with an easy, pleasant experience,” adds Smith.

With the new upgraded CHBO renters have an enriched experience as well. Simplified search tools – with ample opportunity for search refinements throughout the process – bring renters in contact with the property owners who will best meet their needs. The CHBO Team is excited about the expanding opportunities the new website platform can offer both the extended stay traveler and the corporate housing landlord.  CHBO Rental Property Listing
