Hello everyone, and thank you for joining us on the Think Multifamily Podcast. Today, we’re diving deep into the fascinating world of short-term rentals and the way they’re transforming the multifamily real estate scene.
Our special guest for this episode is Jesse Stein, Airbnb’s Global Head of Real Estate. A former NFL player turned real estate pioneer, Jesse has been making waves in the Airbnb landscape, crafting innovative connections between the Airbnb model and apartment owners and residents.

Just last November, Jesse was instrumental in launching Airbnb-Friendly Apartments, a groundbreaking program that’s rapidly gaining momentum. This platform gives renters the chance to find apartments that they can list part-time on Airbnb. As living costs continue to climb, this is a practical and effective way for residents to boost their income.

We’ll be delving into the ins and outs of this program with Jesse, exploring its implications for apartment owners, renters, and the real estate industry as a whole.

Let’s dive in now!”
