About Andes STR

Andes STR offers investors turnkey access to Short Term Rentals ("STRs") as an asset class by using our proprietary technology and extensive Real Estate partner network. We find the best deals, get them ready to be rented out, and manage the properties - all our customers have to do is tell us their budget, we take care of everything else.

We were founded in 2019 with the mission of transforming STRs into an asset class that's easy to invest in and widely available to anyone who's interested. Our vision is to accelerate the transition to a future where people live mostly in STRs, being free to choose location and duration of stay and not having to worry about paying a fixed rent when the place no longer suits their needs.

Andes STR is headquartered in Austin, TX, and has operations in the US, Canada, and Chile.

Core Values

Integrity and Honesty

Doing the right thing is a must. This helps us earn trust from colleagues and customers, which leads to better results in the long run. Honesty is the foundation for great relationships and good investing decisions: we seek it in ourselves, in contractors, and in partners.

Do Good for the Customer

Every decision we make is for the benefit of our customers - if it doesn't make sense for the customer, it doesn't make sense for us. We make our best effort to mitigate risks where we can and perform thorough due diligence before making any important decision, thus increasing the size of the pie.

We Do the Homework

We are not afraid to get our hands dirty if it means we can learn something or improve the way we work. Hard work is necessary for great results, which we are committed to deliver.

Ownership

We own the work we do, and there is no such thing as a good excuse. Everyone at Andes STR acts as an owner of the company and of the properties we buy and manage. At the end of the day, we all must deliver results.

Focus on the Long Term

We aim to build long-term partnerships and grow together with our customers. We are agnostic of size - we look forward to working together whether you invest in 1 property or 10,000. We treat every customer's investment as if it was our own, and we treat every customer as an important investor.

We Put Rigor and Discipline in Everything

We know that success comes from discipline and hard work. We like what we do - we put everything we have into our work so we can share in the success of our customers. There are no shortcuts to success, so we insist on the highest standards and never settle for "good enough".

We Think and Aim Big

There is always a bigger picture, a better dream, and a bolder vision. We are not constrained by what's possible today. If it would make sense striving for something tomorrow, why not try doing it today? Thinking and aiming big is key to grow exponentially, create massive value, and be number 1.
