The People ~ Behind InvitedHome
This July we celebrate Lauren's one year InvitedHome work anniversary! Lauren is our Guest Experience Manager in our Boulder Support Center.
In just one year, Lauren has been able to travel to almost all of our destinations. It is hard for her to pick a favorite destination since she has a hand in all of them, but Telluride and Santa Barbara are definitely high on her list! She describes Telluride as “Mountain Heaven.” She also loves Santa Barbara because it is similar to Boulder, in that there are gorgeous mountains, but has the added bonus of the Pacific Ocean. The best part of our Support Center team members visiting the field, is all the amazing homes you get to see. So Lauren has seen a bunch! Although she loves them all her favorite has got to be, Lotus by the Sea. The community pool, grill area, and the boardwalk with the tall trees that open up to the white sandy beach is hard to beat. .
Being that Lauren is on the Guest Experience Team, our InvitedHome core value, “Treat People Like Humans” is so important to her and influences how she interacts with our teams and guests everyday. Having that empathy and understanding is so important to our culture here. Not only is Lauren committed to the Guest Experience, but she pretty much built the idea around the "InvitedHome Experience" and cares equally about the experiences of our teams across the company.
Lauren has been a big part of the growth that our Emerald Coast destination has gone through over the last year. One of her favorite experiences with InvitedHome was when she spent five weeks in Florida this spring. She loved not only spending extended time in the destination but also working so closely with our team there. When Lauren started at InvitedHome there were only 37 homes in Florida and in just one year with the company, she has seen that destination grow to over 50! Lauren has also enjoyed watching her own team grow. Having started as the first Guest Experience Specialist, Lauren was the first employee at InvitedHome solely dedicated to the guest experience and now she has two others amazing teammates that support our guests and destination teams!
The best part of working with a growth stage start up is getting to have an impact on the culture and the future of InvitedHome. This is what Lauren finds most rewarding about her job -- the ongoing learning and professional development at InvitedHome is so rare and one of Lauren’s favorite parts about being on the InvitedHome team.
Happy one year, Lauren. You have completely rocked this first year and we cannot wait to celebrate many more with you!

This Month's ~ InvitedHome Anniversaries
Please join us in wishing a very happy birthday to one of our Homeowner Experience Specialists, Hannah Hudson. Hannah gets to work with our homeowners in Emerald Coast, Steamboat and Tahoe. She also works heavily with the local operations teams in order to make sure that each home is prepared with the specific details from the homeowner. With homeowners, she is always their first point of contact with InvitedHome should they have any problem or need from us! She loves how diverse her day to day duties are and the outstanding individuals that she is surrounded by.
She loves working for InvitedHome because traveling is very important to her. Since she started with us in December she has been able to explore four of our destinations including Florida, Steamboat, Tahoe and Telluride. Hannah loves to be outdoors and experience cool towns, so the fact she has had the opportunity to travel in her time here, has been really soul awakening for her. While she was in Telluride, Hannah was able to see a really unique home in our inventory, that she would absolutely love to stay in if she had the chance! Castlewood, which is easily one of our largest homes, that sits on the side of one of the mountains in Telluride with a chairlift basically in the back yard. In the back of Castlewood there is also a grotto, which is an outdoor room made of rock with hot tubs inside! We'll take a night there anyday!
Hannah has been able to travel a lot in her lifetime but her most memorable vacation was road tripping with her family as a kid. They took one huge road trip that spanned across the country! They started in Florida and traveled to Yellowstone, Mount Rushmore, and even the Grand Canyon. One day Hannah would love to make another life long memory by traveling to South Africa to see the great white sharks! Good thing we have unlimited paid time off! Start planning, Hannah!
Hannah loves working in the Boulder Support Center, but her favorite part about her job is when she gets to meet the homeowners in person because she loves being able to make connections that are deeper than just a business relationship. Plus, it is always super great to finally put a name and voice to a face! Thanks for everything you do, Hannah! We love having you on the team.
Pictured below are a few shots of Hannah in her favorite places, the mountains, as well as in the Grotto at Castlewood.
