From time to time, we must look to our past in order to truly appreciate where we are today. Many of you know the three of us, (Joe, Jodi, and Chad) over the last 20 years. We were reservationists, hot tub cleaners, housekeepers, technical support, marketing specialists, owner representatives, maintenance personnel and managers. We were where the tire meets the road, as they say. In 2008, utilizing all this experience, we launched Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations with one property. That year, we still were all of the above and more – we were new as a company but well seasoned and experienced in property management.
Over the past ten years, our company has grown and evolved. We moved into our larger office at 35 Towne Centre Way in 2012. The location gave us the necessary room to develop our in-house laundry facility.
In 2014, we added a real estate division by partnering with local agent, Jay Ferguson. The sales team grew, and in 2016 Betsy Spiker Holcomb, another successful agent, joined as a co-owner of the real estate company.
By acquiring a local competitor in 2016, Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations & Sales became the largest vacation rental management company in the Deep Creek Lake area and also significantly expanded the real estate division.
Today, we manage over 450 homes with the help of our experienced staff. Many of our staff members were trained by us in the past; most have worked 5-15 years with us. We also rely on the wisdom of Linda and Zack Taylor (our parents and parents-in-law) who have a wealth of vacation rental industry knowledge. They brought over 50 years of experience to our team. So, we can confidently say, we have the most experienced staff on the lake.
As we did in the past, we all work as a team offering the best we can possibly provide for both our owners and our guests. Although we know the importance of experience, we also know the necessity of forging forward and embracing new concepts and trends.
Whether you're a home owner considering renting, a guest planning a family vacation or a real estate client making your next move, we welcome the opportunity to serve you.
