“The demand for vacation rental homes is growing fast. This a lucrative and loyal market as buyers are likely to buy multiple properties over time, but too few agents have the knowledge to benefit from it. My goal is to spread the word about this great business”
Heather Bayer – Vacation Rental Investing Expert & Agency Owner
Heather Bayer is a seasoned vacation rental investor having bought numerous properties in both the UK and Canada over the past 15 years.

“I wish I’d had a knowledgeable realtor on my side when I came out from England to buy property over here. I could have made a serious mistake and it was only pure luck that my first purchase was a success. It was his loss though – he missed the commission on the next 6 properties I bought. Now I have a mission to help more realtors help more buyers like me”.
Mike Bayer – Vacation Rental Investor & RealForVR Customer Liaison
Mike moved to Canada in 2002 and established a vacation rental property maintenance company in support of Heather’s rental agency. Over the years Mike has developed a keen eye for profitable properties and purchased his first vacation rental home in 2010.

“I get so excited when I talk with friends and acquaintances about the amazing possibilities and income potential of VR properties. I just wish I had a selection of Real Estate Agents I could send them to to get them started. They see my success and want in, but have been let down time and again by agents who make it up as they go along.”
