Our story

Learn what Evolve is and why we do what we do.​​

The vacation rental experience reimagined

In 2011, Evolve co-founders Brian Egan (pictured) and Adam Sherry entered the vacation rental industry very aware of its shortcomings. They saw stressed owners, overpriced property management, and guests in need of better standards and support. With their experience in hospitality, they knew they could change the status quo. Enter Evolve.

What is Evolve? Our growing team has become the vacation rental solution for guests, owners, and service partners. We’re redefining the vacation rental experience in tens of thousands of homes across North America — adding more expertise and support for everyone involved. Evolve is more than vacation rentals. Evolve is a better experience.
