"We cannot speak highly enough about Megan Carda and her associates at Lifestyle Properties.
One of the things that sets Megan apart from others is she always puts the needs of her property owners and guests first. This is refreshing in business today and it makes us proud to be associated with her.
Megan and her associates put extra care in managing our property. Our home is well cared for at all times. Anytime something is needed on the property, she is prompt and professional. She takes care in getting any problems resolved quickly and at the lowest cost possible. The housekeeping staff does an excellent job. More often than not, our guest reviews make a positive comment about Megan's interaction with them. She and her associates always seem to do more than is expected.
Accounting monthly and at the end of the year has been accurate and timely. Her marketing has been aggressive and has accounted for many bookings.
Above all else, Megan is honest and trustworthy.
We highly recommend Megan and Lifestyle Properties. If you like to learn more, please feel free to call us." - Owners of Park Place
"Finding Megan to manage our house in Dundee made all the difference in our ability to become part of VRBO and AirBnB services, we could not have done it without her. She is knowledgeable, conscientious, and on top of the issues. She will also spend as much time as it takes to fix a problem, especially if it is impacting a renter's experience. We were lucky to find her!" - Owners of Dogwood House
"Since Fall of 2015 my wife and I have been working with Megan and the team at Lifestyle Properties. Megan worked with us to prepare our home to be a vacation rental and took care of the licensing and notices. We were, very much, a part of the process and felt like part of the team. The in our home are well cared for with excellent concierge services. Guests contact Megan and her team with any questions and concerns. That gives us a great peace of mind and allows us to spend our summer traveling. We could not be more satisfied!" - Owners of The Roost
"Megan has grown an exceptional business and I have been a part of her program for nearly two years.
Lifestyle Properties provides professional and attentive services to our guests at Bella Collina. Each guest is greeted by an LP employee and debriefed on the property and its amenities. This is important to me as the property owner because it is not only a representation of LP, but also my husband and me. The LP staff is always available for the guests during their stay, and I know they respond timely to any needs or requests.
They provide a lovely concierge service to guests, with local contacts in transportation, touring, and dining. They also offer to stock the home with groceries, which I believe is outstanding.
Based on guest reviews (both online and on-site book), this extra service is greatly appreciated.
I, myself, have been a benefactor of Megan’s connections when I host family and friends at Bella Collina. Her connections in the Willamette Valley are extensive and very helpful to us.
As the homeowner, I have leaned heavily on Megan’s network of professionals when it comes to any of our needs. She has been the sole reference for home repair (plumbing, electric, HVAC, blinds, appliances, etc.) Because we currently live out of state, we are very appreciative of her connections. She and her maintenance team have been wonderful to us.
Megan is always available to me when I have questions or concerns about the property. She has been readily available via phone, email or text. I do believe this is a very important part of her services.
My final reference would be regarding the cleaning of our home. I know that Megan places the highest expectations on herself and her team to present an exceptionally clean home to our guests. Each time I arrive on property, I am pleased with the state of our home. My husband and I adore our Bella Collina home and look forward to someday making it our permanent residence. Until then, it is incredibly important to us that our “baby” is well taken care of. We love to share our home with others, but we have also worried about surrendering it to others. LP ensures that our home is cared for and looked after for us. We have been very satisfied with Megan and the quality of service she provides to us.
Best wishes to you!" - Owner of Bella Collina
"We’ve owned Maison d'Amis for 2 years now and have put a lot of effort into restoration and upgrades to maintain an environment that not only visitors but that we want to spend time in.
Since Maison is a property we take pride in, we wanted a property manager that shared our enthusiasm for not just the property, but the welfare of our guests. We were lucky and found Megan almost immediately since she is known in Yamhill county as a leading VRBO operator and markets her properties very effectively to anyone searching on the Internet.
Even though we talked with other managers, Megan lives in Yamhill county and can immediately respond to any exceptions in person. Other national/Internet-based operators hire 3rd party contractors that have no real investment or reputation to protect. In addition, we can pick up the phone and talk with Megan at any time to resolve issues now versus sending an open-ended request over the Internet.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Megan to anyone considering operating a vacation rental in Yamhill county. After looking at her site (lifestylepropertiesoregon.com), talk with her - She listens and her experience helps you in making any decisions about operating your property."
