MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla.—December 21, 2021—During the 2021 VRM Intel Vacation Rental Women's Summit held in New Orleans, Newman-Dailey Resort Properties Founder/CEO, Jeanne Dailey, was honored as an industry leader with a VRM Intel Pioneer Award. The Pioneer Awards were launched at the inaugural VRM Intel Women’s Summit held in 2019 to honor female pioneers in the vacation rental industry.

“Our objective for the event is to bring the smartest and most influential women in the vacation rental industry together to inspire and empower attendees, encourage a sense of community, and discuss high-level topics specific to this unique audience,” Amy Hinote, founder of VRM Intel, said in a release. “It is also an opportunity for us to celebrate pioneering women who helped build the vacation rental industry into the force that it is today.”

Jeanne Dailey founded Newman-Dailey Resort Properties in Destin, Florida in 1985. At the time, Destin was a sleepy fishing village and vacation rentals were a little known lodging option. Dailey proved that anything is possible. Through her leadership, she helped build the vacation rental market in Northwest Florida and beyond. Through her involvement locally as well as in national organizations, including Vacation Rental Managers Association (VRMA), HomeAway Advisory Board and VRM Intel, she has been a visionary leader both locally and nationally.

Today the vacation rental industry includes more than 10 million vacation rentals in 120,000 global markets. In the Destin area, Newman-Dailey is one of the longest operating vacation rental and real estate companies and has earned a reputation for honesty, integrity and exceptional service. Her advocacy for the vacation rentals has fostered a balance between the vacation rental industry and local communities in an effort to achieve responsible growth that benefits travelers and locals alike.

Dailey was recognized alongside other industry pioneers, including Carole Sharoff, president of AVH Realty, Inc,/Atlantic Vacation Homes in Gloucester, Massachusetts, and Heather Bayer, co-founder of Vacation Rental Formula in Ontario, Canada. Dailey along with these female leaders have been catalysts of the vacation rental industry’s rapid growth over the past decade and have built not only industry-leading property management companies, but also helped build the communities around them into sought-after vacation destinations. When asked what she likes most about the vacation rental industry, Dailey says “What I love about this business is that we help make families dreams come true.”
