Entrepreneur Tim Choate was ready for a vacation after building his second successful tech startup, and an affordable and kid-friendly vacation rental was just the ticket for his family of 5. That is until the hassle of the vacation rental world left Tim wanting a vacation from booking his vacation. 

With an extensive background in entrepreneurship, a track record of building and growing successful tech startups, and a deep understanding of the traditional vacation rental space, Choate conceptualized a vacation rental company that would stand apart from the rest. One that would make the vacation rental category safer, easier and more consistent for both guests and vacation rental managers and owners. 

Today, RedAwning is the world’s largest collection of vacation and short term rental properties, the #1 US Supplier to all major channels including Airbnb, Vrbo, Expedia, and and a key partner to Amazon and Google, and has served over 1 million guests to date.
