Matt Landau



Matt Landau is a leading voice in the quickly emerging vacation rental movement. While launching Los Cuatro Tulipanes, one of the first luxury accommodations in the emerging historic district of Casco Viejo (Panama), Matt learned the challenges of community building from the ground up, co-founding a gang intervention program called Esperanza Social Venture Club, which demobilizes street gangs through entrepreneurship.


Matt applied his real world community-building experience to the creation of a virtual community in the form of VRMB, widely recognized as the top online marketing resource in the industry, as well as VRMB’s Inner Circle, a private community of vacation rental owners and managers. When contemplating TV show proposals from several major studios, Matt's admiration for his own community members became the impetus for A Sense of Place, introducing the world to professional vacation rentals through hosts at the very top of their game.
