I was homeowner of two vacation properties, one in Vermont and one in Spain, which I found myself using less and less as taxes and maintenance expenses kept increasing. I was thinking about selling the properties when a friend sug gested that I try to rent them out for a short time. Like every homeowner, I was concerned about sharing my personal space with someone else. But after much hesitation, I rented one of my properties for a 3-day weekend. Rushing to check the house after the guests’ departure I was pleasantly surprised to find everything in its place. I was left with a nice rent payment for days that the property would have otherwise been unoccupied. I continued renting the property out, and was able to not only cover all my taxes and expenses, but also make a very nice return. Above all, I was still able to enjoy the property for myself whenever I wanted. And insurance covered all my risks.
Many of my friends also have vacation properties and, hearing about my success, asked me to help them manage rentals. Thus Faberge was born.
Being a traveler and a guest at other people’s properties, I noticed that homeowners often do not have enough time to dedicate to everything that goes into managing their properties and providing the highest level of service. At times, I found that descriptions and photos of the advertised properties were not exactly accurate. Additionally, sometimes I didn’t receive a reply, or I received it days after making other travel arrangements. There has to be a better way!
My mission is to provide my guests with excellent service, reply to their queries within an hour, deliver total satisfaction, and be there for them before, during, and after their stay. Guests greatly appreciate this level of service and keep coming back, recommending Faberge to their friends and family. I receive many letters from satisfied guests.
By combining personal experience, understanding homeowners’ concerns and guests’ desire for excellent service, we are able to attain occupancy rates that are much higher than those achieved by most homeowners. This provides excellent improvement to the bottom line.
Time is very valuable to everyone. Renting a second home should not be a second job . We take care of every detail and create value for homeowners and guests alike.
Whether you are putting your second home to work or looking to be a guest at one of our beautiful properties, we would love the opportunity to help you.

I joined Faberge in early 2019 after a serendipitous meeting with Dmitry. His passion, dedication and expertise in vacation home rentals was apparent from the minute we started to talk; I knew he was someone I wanted to work with. As a person who enjoys unique projects and loves to help others, I realized that I could make dream vacations come true for friends and family at the many beautiful properties that Faberge rents. Whether it is answering questions from a guest about our homes, or writing the descriptions, or helping maintain the properties, no two days are the same, and hearing about the great time everyone had at our homes makes it even better. These are memories that they will remember forever.
I am a veteran, and spent five and a half years as an Army intelligence analyst, during which time I deployed twice to Iraq, and spent a month in Haiti after their 2010 earthquake to assist in the relief effort. I then graduated from Wesleyan University in 2018 with a degree in government and am a professional writer by trade. I wrote and published my first novel in 2019, and am always looking for unique experiences to better understand the true nature of the world to improve my creative writing.
Please feel free to contact me any time, day or night. I will be more than happy to assist!
