Good Deeds & Santa Claus!

Well, it’s official. We are not going to have a white Holiday this year. Since this is clearly not something that anyone can control, I think that we should just embrace it and take advantage of how comfortable it is outside. No need to dress in multiple layers and put on a snow suit just to go to the store. On the serious side though, it is nice that we can still go to the state parks and hike around. People are still jogging down Deep Creek Drive and there are several activities going on at Wisp right now (mountain coaster, canopy tours, Segway tours, and the ice skating rink). Besides if you are a last minute procrastinator and still having shopping to do, it’s much easier to lug your shopping bags from store to car when it’s not 10°. It will snow soon and balance will once again be restored to our mountain life. Nursing Home Donation
Taylor-Made employees once went above and beyond for our Holiday donation this year! Each year we choose a different organization or family in need to shop for! Every department pulls together to get the items on their assigned list. This year we choose to donate to Dennett Road Nursing Home, a local nursing home here in our area. We gathered boxes and bags of everything from crosswords puzzles, body wash, socks, blankets, calendars, CDs, and list goes on. It says a lot about our employees and why we are so proud of them. They give often and always in abundance. The satisfaction for everyone is knowing that we helped give to someone in need at this time of year. So, this is a big Thank You & Shout Out to our Taylor-Made Family!

Staying on top of our game!

Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations& Sales has been overly busy lately both in the office and out. Company employees and owners recently returned from two national conferences both of which are known to be the biggest and most influential in the vacation rental industry.
The first conference the company attended was the Vacation Rental Managers Association (VRMA) Annual Conference held Oct. 26 through the 29th in San Diego, California­.

     “The VRMA Annual Conference is the largest gathering for the professionally managed vacation rental industry,” co-owner Jodi Refosco said. “Our participation at the Annual Conference proves our dedication to growing along with the industry, finding the very best way to serve our guests and owners, and always staying on or above the cutting-edge of industry trends.” 
     More than 1000 leading vacation rental industry professionals attended this year’s Annual Conference, which provides an unparalleled avenue for the vacation rental industry’s top influencers to exchange information and ideas through four days of educational sessions, networking opportunities and a tradeshow. This year’s VRMA Annual Conference was the largest event in the professionally managed vacation rental industry history.

     Jodi went on to say, “This year we took our largest group yet with over 10 employees and owners attending. With such a large array of classes and seminars being offered we wanted to make sure that we had someone from every department present.” Several of those from Taylor-Made also had the honor of presenting a session while there and Jodi was once again reelected to serve on the VRMA Board of Directors.

U.S. Midway

   Of course, all work and no play makes for a boring trip so the group was able to fit in some play time. We took an amazing tour of U.S. Midway a Navy Aircraft Carrier. (Not a good thing for those that are claustrophobic! or tall for that matter; Poor Joe!) We also got to spend a fun filled night with all VRMA attendees at The Wave House, which basically is just what it sounds like. One side of the park has the professional wave pool for those that know what they are doing and the other half is the training park for those that don’t. There were some causalities, I’m not going to lie but fortunately for me, I have video of it! (haha!) We also got to eat at some fantastic restaurants and basically just socialize with new and old acquaintances and friends.

We ate A LOT of food!

     TMDCVS employees and owners then left for Charleston, South Carolina for the Vacation Rental Housekeeping Professionals National Conference held November 10th-12th. Joe Refosco, President of the Board of VRHP, stated, “We were very pleased with this year’s outcome. Our membership grew to over 500 members. At the conference we were able to provide 8-9 informative sessions and several roundtables. We believe in creating the best housekeeping team we can and trading ideas with our peers is the way to do it.”
