Hosted by
Nate Smoyer

It's not enough to just list a pretty home or apartment on Airbnb in order to stand out. Maybe it is for some, but not for Jonah Hanig. Jonah is the Founder of a company called Rove. They've set out to build an exclusive network of luxury short-term and mid-term rentals, ideals for those traveling and working. It's more than just the bones of the building, though. The team at Rove is especially skilled in upscaled design, ensuring each property is tastefully complete. Of course every Rove property is well-equipped with high-speed internet, and on-call concierge. And if that wasn't enough, Rove has recently launched its own marketplace to help investors buy and sell "ready to rent" properties. Hit play to to hear what Rove is all about.

More about Jonah and Rove
Rove is a rental booking platform for homes designed for remote work.

Rove homes are professionally designed with upscale kitchens, comfortable work spaces with lightning fast wifi, and on-call customer concierge. (No more IKEA chairs or waiting for an unresponsive host to send you the updated wifi password.)

Rove also just launched a marketplace for investors to purchase "ready-to-rent" rentals (and turns their existing properties into one). Rove even handles management for the owner, so it's completely turn-key. Their managed properties generate 30-70%+ higher booking revenue annually for property owners than comparable residential rental property benchmarks.

Jonah is a Columbia and Y Combinator alum who got the idea from personal experience-–struggling to find Airbnbs where he could take Zoom calls all day during his travels. So, he built a team from Snap, SpaceX, June Homes, and CORE to launch the central place for luxury rentals for consumers and investors alike.
