Ep 102 – How to Guarantee Five-Star Reviews with Sean McGregor

Sean McGregor literally found hosting through love. When he first started dating Lindsey in 2015, she was renting out the 2nd bedroom in her Austin, Texas apartment which covered her entire rent then when she would travel, she would rent out the entire home and it would pay her rent and travel expenses! At the same time, she was also starting up a CoLiving/CoWorking business for Digital Nomads and Solo Travelers called The SWAP Loft (SWAP = Stay Work And Play). Sean quickly became involved and was eventually the only person messaging up to 35 guests at a time across 3 Austin locations. All of this while Lindsey, Sean, & their son Jackson were thousands of miles away traveling through Eastern Europe. When Covid made hosting people in shared rooms a pretty terrible idea, Sean pivoted to CoHosting homes he had never been to, in places he had never visited before by viewing things from a traveler’s mindset. How did it go? SWAP CoHosting now has over 2,400 Airbnb Reviews, are SuperHosts w/ a 4.96★ Rating since 2018, and SWAP is so confident in the experience provided to guests that it offers a “5★ Guarantee” where no commission is owed if a guest leaves anything other than a 5★ Review.
