Della & John
Property Manager
Ourselves (Della and John) own a house in Spain and are usually there enjoying our retirement. Before we moved here we lived in Dripping Springs, TX where we worked as owners of a property management company consisting of mostly long term rentals. In 2017 we shifted our focus to Short Term Rentals(STRs) and sold the majority of our investment houses and turned the remaining home(s) into STRs which we manage with the help of our niece and newphew (Josh & Porsha).
