Episode 117: Mastering Short Term Rental Investment, with Michael Sjogren

Michael is the host of the Short Term Rental Secrets Podcast and founder of the Short Term Rental Secrets Mastermind, a training, and mastermind program that helps investors launch, automate and scale their short-term rental portfolios. 

Michael and his wife Krysten founded Occupied, LLC, a national short-term rental investment and management company in 2017, as a vehicle to build passive income so they could stop trading away time from family for a paycheck. That vision came to fruition within 18 months when their short-term rental portfolio replaced their income and Krysten and Michael both left their corporate jobs. They are based out of Boston, MA, and currently have a portfolio of 41 short-term rental properties across four states including 2 boutique hotels on Boston’s north shore.
