Service Before Self

The Value of a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business

In today’s world of start-ups, corporate ventures, and business innovations, the landscape is painted with various shades of companies, each bringing its own story and ethos. Among these tales of dedication and drive stands a unique badge of honor, that of the Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB). Weekender Management proudly wears this badge, an emblem that carries with it an unyielding commitment to service, resilience, and reliability.

Understanding the SDVOSB Certification

The Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business designation is not just a title but a federally recognized certification by the Veterans Administration (VA). It highlights businesses owned by veterans who, while serving their country, sustained a service-connected disability. The certification goes beyond simply recognizing military service; it identifies those who have made personal sacrifices while defending the nation.

Garrett Ham, a co-founder of Weekender Management, embodies this spirit of service and sacrifice. Having dedicated six pivotal years of his life to military service — two years with the United States Army and four with the United States Air Force — his commitment to his country is undeniable. And now, in the realm of business, Garrett brings that same passion and dedication to serve Weekender Management’s clients.

How Being an SDVOSB Sets Weekender Management Apart

  1. Rooted in Discipline: Military training instills a discipline that becomes a part of one’s DNA. This means that as an SDVOSB, Weekender Management operates with a level of precision, efficiency, and reliability that is second to none. This discipline translates into meticulous property management, ensuring that every detail is addressed, every potential challenge preempted, and every opportunity optimized for our clients.
  2. Commitment to Excellence: The military is an environment where only the best is good enough. This relentless pursuit of excellence is a cornerstone of Weekender Management. We do not just aim to meet expectations but to consistently exceed them, offering an unparalleled service experience to our clientele.
  3. Resilience and Problem-Solving: The challenges faced in military service teach resilience and adaptability. These qualities ensure that no matter what challenges arise in property management, Weekender Management is well-equipped to navigate them with agility, always finding effective solutions that safeguard our clients’ interests.
  4. Integrity and Trust: The military values of honor, respect, and integrity are deeply ingrained in our company’s ethos. Clients can trust that their properties, investments, and reputations are in hands that prioritize transparency, honesty, and unwavering ethical standards.

Service Beyond the Battlefield: A Commitment to Clients

Being an SDVOSB is more than just a reflection of past service; it is a testament to ongoing dedication. Just as our veterans are committed to protecting their nation, Weekender Management is committed to protecting and maximizing our clients’ investments.

  1. Personalized Service: Understanding the nuances of sacrifice and service allows Weekender Management to approach each client as more than just a business opportunity. Instead, each relationship is nurtured with care, understanding, and a commitment to seeing our clients succeed.
  2. Community Building: Veterans understand the value of community — the sense of camaraderie and collective success. In the world of Airbnb property management, this means fostering a sense of community among guests, enhancing their stay, and in turn, elevating the success of our clients.
  3. Continuous Learning: The military landscape is one of constant evolution, requiring its personnel to be perennial learners. This attribute ensures that Weekender Management is always at the forefront of industry trends, innovations, and best practices, bringing the best to our clients.


At its heart, the SDVOSB certification is more than just a business categorization. It’s a reflection of Weekender Management’s spirit — one forged in the fires of military service, commitment, and sacrifice. We wear this badge with pride, not just as a testament to our past but as a promise of our future — a future where our clients are assured of service that goes above and beyond, reflecting the very essence of our veteran roots.
