Meet Kayse Slaughter of Venture KC in San Diego

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kayse Slaughter.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Kayse. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I joined the military right out of high school for many reasons, one of those reasons was the fact that I didn’t necessarily know what I wanted to do with my life or what career I wanted. Fast forward ten years later, and as I’m transitioning out of the military I feel like I finally have an idea of what makes me feel fulfilled. That is making spaces that make other people happy. I found that I love the fact that I can create a space for people to escape too and get pure joy out of it. I always had an interest in real estate and different types of properties. What I have found is that you can take a unique structure and a small piece of land and create something wonderful. Not only does it provide vacationers (or staycationers) a place to relax and enjoy themselves, but it also provides income for homeowners that they didn’t have before. Now, not only can I make the guest happy, but I can help homeowners make extra income as well and it becomes a win-win for everyone involved.

Has it been a smooth road?
Absolutely not. It has been and is continuing to be hard work, once the property was complete, we now have the job of managing the property. The labor itself was hard work. Many long days and evenings were spent clearing the yard, painting fences, building decks, landscaping. Also, trying to figure out the ins and outs of making it a business opportunity was a task in itself. Not to mention my partner and I both had full time jobs in the military. We would take five steps forward and get knocked six steps back but in the end, we ended up creating a unique space that brings joy to other people, for an extremely affordable cost and we could be more proud.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
Venture KC, in a nutshell, specializes in short term rental management. This goes for properties we own, we manage for other owners or create for home and landowners on their property. We will take on your real estate and make it cash flowing piece of property whether it is a single family home fully furnished, bare apartment complex or a 400 square foot piece of your backyard with nothing on it. The way we are different than any other short term rental management company is that we can create a short term rental property for you as long as you have a place to put it. We are also super hosts. So listing your established property under our management can get your rental more views and higher exposure.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
San Diego is a vacation destination and if we can create places for vacationers AND locals to feel like they can get away and relax then I think it’s perfect. On the other hand, if real estate investors are looking for a place that people want to visit year round, I would say San Diego is the place to look. Setting up short term rentals isn’t as simple as it sounds and there are certain areas throughout San Diego where the city doesn’t allow it. That is why Venture KC offers to consult for short term rental and will assist in managing the properties if needed.
