Expert panelist for AVLmeetup's "The State of STR’s in WNC - AirBnB's & the like - good or bad for the area?!." (October 3rd, 2023)
In 2019, Drew and his fiancé, Lily, purchased their first primary residence with a $10k down payment. This initial residence was renovated and sold to acquire a house-hack in 2022, laying the groundwork to bootstrap a business. Just 13 months after initiating their first STR househack, StayAVL now manages, leases, or owns 20+ units, generating $10k in monthly cash flow while continuously investing in further growth (as of 8/5/23).
Drew's work is characterized by a commitment to quality, efficiency, and scalability. He firmly believes in the power of systems, teams, and partnerships, aiming to build manageable, scalable, and sellable businesses within the STR space. He shares this venture with Lily, an accomplished designer and detail oriented operator.
Beyond his role as an operator, Drew has a passion for education and learning. He is currently planning a social media campaign with the aim to enrich the knowledge base around STRs, how to fund STR businesses, and assist others in achieving financial and time freedom, just as he did through free information, courses, and sweat equity.
On a personal note, Drew, a former avid climber, now shares his life with two delightful Goldendoodles. Having recently transitioned from his W2 job to focus solely on StayAVL, Drew is steadfast in achieving his short and long-term goals across family, business, health, and personal fulfillment. Drew Wyatt isn't just crafting a business; he's designing a lifestyle of financial freedom and success.
