LiveRez REZY Awards: Honoring the Best in the Vacation Rental Industry

At this year’s annual Partner Conference, LiveRez introduced the REZY Awards to shine a light on the stars of the team who deserve recognition for their dedication, hard work, and positive attitude in the vacation rental industry.

Partners were nominated to win in one of three categories: Inspiring Joy (awarded to the team member who can always be counted on to spread positivity, boost their co-workers, and smile through just about anything), Gettin’ It Done (awarded to the team member who manages to juggle everything that comes their way and get things done when the going is tough), and The Spirit of LiveRez (awarded to the team member who is dedicated to the future of the industry, is always willing to mentor others, and is a strong team leader.)

And the winners are…

Rezy Award Winners

For 2017, the Inspiring Joy Award was given to Tony Origer at Florida Dream Homes. A “Customer Service Guru”, Tony constantly goes above and beyond for guests, putting their needs first and always getting the job done efficiently and thoroughly. Tony’s biggest asset has always been his focus on the guest, no matter the situation.

Congratulations to the two other finalists for the Inspiring Joy Award: Catalina Carrion-Kozak at Colorado Rocky Mountain Resorts and Maggie Guy at Beachside Rentals, Inc.


The inaugural Gettin’ It Done Award was awarded to Kimberly Johnston at Ridge Realty Rentals. This “Jill of All Trades” is credited with saving a 34-year old, family business thanks to her hard work, dedication, and persistence. Thanks to Kimberly, Ridge Realty Rentals has seen an increase in bookings, better owner satisfaction, and a better site rating from guests.

The two well-deserving finalists for this award were Mary Ambrosio at Sun Palace Vacations and Lauren Teems at Russell Vacation Rentals.


Finally, The Spirit of LiveRez Award was presented to Bradie Beagley-Reiner with Bluewater Vacation Homes. Bradie embodies the spirit of LiveRez with her never say can’t attitude and dedication to exceed expectations. Her ability to see potential issues before they arise and work to resolve them quickly is an incredible asset to Bluewater and the entire LiveRez Community.

Carol Beaucage at Holiday Beach Rentals and Barbara Cool Olson at Beachcomber Vacation Homes were the two finalists for the Spirit of LiveRez Award.


Lifetime Achievement Award

Lee HughesIn addition to the three partner awards, LiveRez also presented a Lifetime Achievement Award to Lee Hughes at Generali Global Assistance (formerly CSA Travel Protection).

Dubbed the “Godfather of Travel Insurance” by LiveRez Founder and CEO Tracy Lotz, Lee was honored by the LiveRez Community for his dedication, loyalty, and hard work and for playing a major role in the vacation rental industry’s adoption of travel insurance. Lee was also an early supporter of LiveRez and their mission, even before LiveRez was officially incorporated.

Congratulations to all the winners and nominees for the 2017 REZY Awards! Your dedication and hard work are truly an inspiration to all in the vacation rental industry.
