Connecting an Industry Through Podcasting: a Conversation with Founder Wil Slickers

How did a career at the front desk of a Marriott hotel spark a passion for hospitality and lead to building a portfolio of vacation rentals and the premier podcasting network dedicated to all things hospitality and real estate?

Joining us today is the one and only Wil Slickers as we learn about his unconventional pathway to success!

Wil is the founder of the thriving property management company Recreation Vacation Rentals and powerhouse podcast network, of which The Real Estate Law Podcast is a proud member!

Now managing over a dozen vacation homes and a podcast platform that reaches the masses, Wil is a true master of connecting and inspiring others.

He’s an elite networker, and has shared the main stage at national real estate conferences with the likes of Julie George, Bill Faeth, and Mike Sjogren.

Listen as we pick the brain of this short-term rental rockstar to learn his secrets for success in real estate, content creation, and building vibrant online communities.

Things we discussed in this episode:

  • How Wil built a luxury vacation rental management company with 15+ homes
  • The pivotal moments that grew his business Recreation Rentals Nationwide 
  • Leveraging Clubhouse (remember that??) to rebuild his network during the pandemic shutdown
  • Turning sponsor interest at a conference into the podcast empire
  • Maintaining hospitality standards across a wide-ranging property portfolio
  • Insider industry predictions on the future of short-term rentals
  • Monetizing your podcast on a sponsorship model
  • Advice for starting strong and sticking with podcasting long-term
