Our company was founded on the idea that short term rentals bring the it is time to end the strangle hold that big business and the local government have on the tourism economy in New Orleans. This city is known universally for several things, but mainly for its vibrant tourism industry.
As locals with extensive experience in the New Orleans hospitality industry, we have seen first-hand both sides of tourism’s role in the city. Every year millions of tourists come to New Orleans and have the time of their lives. These individuals take home with them the perception that this is one of the greatest places on Earth – and we are not here to disagree. However, we are very much aware of the gentrification and economic devastation ravaging local residents. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, the local government took action to restore the local economy to its pre-Katrina level and beyond.
While this has been successful, local government has failed to address the issues its citizens face every day: substandard public education, a shortage of well-paying jobs or a path to the few that do exist here, potholes, crime, affordable housing, and so much more.
Our mission is to help capture the tourism dollars that will inevitably flow through this city and work hand-in-hand with New Orleans homeowners to keep these dollars in their pockets. Short term rentals are a vital source of income for many residents and our services help ensure this source of income is maximized.
Currently, we manage over 1,000 bookings and $500,000 in revenue each year for our clients. We have personally seen how owner-occupants of doubles throughout the city have completely transformed their financial situations through leveraging the short term rental market in the New Orleans – now, it’s your turn.
Who we are

Michael worked in security at a Wyndham Resorts both uptown and Downtown, while pursuing his undergrad degree. At twenty years old, Michael was promoted to Director of Security at the Wyndham French Quarter Hotel. While balancing school and work life, Michael also co-founded multiple real estate investment companies helping rehab several houses in the New Orleans area both directly and indirectly. After spending two years in this position, Michael moved out of the French Quarter and into the neighboring CBD where he filled the same position at the Pan American Life Center – one of New Orleans’ most prestigious office buildings.In August of 2015, Michael left his security role behind to pursue his Juris Doctor at Tulane University School of Law. Michael first encountered the world of short term rentals during law school and quickly became successful in running his own. Soon he employed his hospitality background and business management experience to implement his winning strategies for other short term rental owners throughout New Orleans. After helping several homeowners run highly successful short term rentals out of their New Orleans’ homes, Michael realized his passion for aiding in the renaissance of New Orleans could be found outside of the law. After graduating Tulane Law School with a focus in Constitutional Law in May 2018, Michael founded NOLA Short Term Rental Solutions with the intention of helping New Orleans residents find economic prosperity through the ever growing tourism economy the city boasts. Not only is Michael New Orleans born and raised, he is New Orleans educated and dedicated.
