"First of all, we were totally impressed by your representative, Tiffany! She was very understanding of our requirements and she responded to our many questions in a very professional and courteous manner. She also pointed out the answers in the owner package she furnished us with prior to our meeting with her. For the 20 years prior to my retirement I was co-owner of a vacation rental company in Gatlinburg that managed 200+ vacation rental properties and I have to say that Tiffany truly impressed my wife and me. This is the reason we signed up with Natural Retreats."
