Our Team

Landon Schlabach, CEO - Founder 

This is Landon Schlabach. He has a beautiful wife named Kelsey, and three adorable boys, Bodhi, Kyler and Zeke. Landon is always moving with creative new ideas and taking on any opportunity placed in front of him. These four help to keep him grounded on his endless endeavors. He loves brainstorming with like-minded entrepreneurs, golf, acquire (the board game), and cold plunges:) Landon started BNBBreeze back in 2018 and continues to move forward tirelessly with new ideas every day! Now he handles acquisitions and oversight of the company he began all on his own!

Favorite BNBBreeze Rental Property: Living The Dream - "Cause who doesn’t Love swings at there dining table, or a Putting Green in the back yard :)"

Heather Schlabach, (Co-Owner, COO)

Heather is in charge of onboarding new properties, overseeing operations, and keeping Landon in line! Heather was finally convinced to join the team in August of 2020. Landon is a visionary and is incredible at what he does. However, organization of any kind is just not his strong suit. Heather is the integrator to his vision. The two work very well together (most days;)). She travels consistently, sometimes for work and sometimes for pleasure. Part of onboarding new homes is the Staging Properties side of the business. Investors who purchase new properties specifically for short term rental will often need to furnish the home. Heather’s insight to interior design and experience with short term rentals gives her the perfect platform to set up these homes with unique, beautiful style that guests love. It’s arguably her favorite part of her job;)

Favorite BNBBreeze Rental Property: The GreenCreek Shipyard 2.0 - "Guys it has a waterfall!"  

AJ Raber, (Development Manager)

Aj got thrown into all kinds of work when he first came on board and handled it all with the enthusiasm of a kid on Christmas morning. He handles our revenue management, marketing, web development, and most importantly ALL our tech questions. Him and Landon are two peas in a pod and keeping two visionaries like these guys to stay on track during any kind of meeting is a tough job. The bunny trails and streams of ideas are endless. We are grateful to have his insight and enthusiasm on the BNBBreeze team.

Favorite BNBBreeze Rental Property: Happy Harbor - "You can get lost exploring the house. Plenty of places for hide and seek and fun games. Even comes with a secret door leading to the game room!"

Barb Witbeck, (Cleaning Relations Manager) 

Barb was one of the very first team members of BNBBreeze. Meaning she has put up with Landon and his antics for quite some time:) What a blessing she is! Barb helps with the onboarding of all new cleaners and is their point of contact for any restocking needs or maintenance issues. By now she knows most of the homes in our portfolio quite well and has incredible relations with all of our cleaners. It’s hard to say all she does but keeping our properties well stocked and cleaners happy is a tall order that she has taken on head first!

Favorite BNBBreeze Rental Property: Cabin on the River - “Perfect little private, romantic getaway by the river.”

Evangeline Troyer (Accountant)

We have known Evangeline since we were just young kiddos when she was our dads secretary. So having her on the BNBBreeze team is somewhat surreal. Vange joined BNBBreeze when Landon was neck deep in accounting chaos. Way back at the beginning of the company. Her detail oriented personality and super human organization skills helped clean that right up. She continues to try and keep us in line despite our determination to stray:) We treasure having a long time friend and confidant a part of the team!

Favorite BNBBreeze Rental Property: Bearded Oaks - “Great outdoor porch and pool area.”

Mandy Troyer (Accountant 2.0)

It seems keeping our spending in line takes not one but two people :) Mandy joined the team to wield her QuickBooks knowledge over us and we could not be more grateful for her bottomless pit of knowledge! She catches all the details we tend to miss and it’s great having her a part of the team.

Favorite BNBBreeze Rental Property: Smoky Mountain Barndominium - “Went for a visit and the kids did not want to go home!”

Eugene Miller (Direct Bookings Manager)

Some guests prefer to book directly with a phone call instead of using any of the available booking platforms. We wanted to make sure we were accommodating these individuals and brought Eugene on board to help with that! Eugene is a childhood friend and does an incredible job at handling all of our direct bookings. He absolutely loves when Aj runs a Busy Beaver ad without letting him know first:) His phone rings off the hook, with no warning at all.

Favorite BNBBreeze Rental Property: Veazy Cove - “It has everything!”

Alexander Zapata

We quickly learned that guest communication is one of the most important aspects of a good guest experience!  Alex is a part of the team that makes helpful and responses happen in a timely manner for each and every guest. He noted that he enjoyed ensuring guests that we are not just a business but also looking after their comfort and delightful stay. He loves taking on challenges and most especially the ones that are near impossible! On his days off, he won't be at home, he will be out fishing!

Favorite BNBBreeze Rental Property: Veazy Cove "As I am a water lover, I'd like to be near the ocean, preferably this property has access to hunt for Mangrove Jacks"

Chyrch Mendoza

Chyrch is another member of our communication team! His background is in the hospitality industry and is helpful in working with all of our BNBBreeze guests. He worked with excellence and keen attention to detail to identify insights for clients in the hotel and restaurant industry for more than 10 years, and is applying all he learned in his communications with each and every guest now.

Marnell is the final member of the BNBBreeze communication team. He has experience in the BPO industry for almost 2 decades.

His experience in sales also gives him a clear perspective on how to present the services his company represents.

Elizabeth Randall (Maintenance Manager) 

You know what’s a bummer? Showing up to a home with broken items… Whether it’s a failing A/C unit, TV that won’t turn on, or door handle that does not open. Elizabeth oversees all aspects of maintenance-related scheduling, reporting, and oversight. With a focus on proactive maintenance, the manager ensures that our properties are always in prime shape, ready to welcome guests and homeowners. 

Favorite BNBBreeze Rental Property: Langford Creek - “Super modern but feels cozy and not crazy large like some homes.”

Kimberly Raber (Listing Optimization)

From updating photos captions to implementing a new listing description protocol, Kim does it all! It is incredibly handy to have her available to help us out with all of the tasks we simply do not have time for. She tackles them all with relentless enthusiasm and lightning quick speed; all while still maintaining all the necessary details! We are beyond grateful she has lent us her expertise and love having her a part of the team! 

Favorite BNBBreeze Rental Property:

Trinity Derkach (Listing Optimization)

Over the years, we have learned a few “tricks” with the different OTA platforms we use. Keeping up with our listings, following new trends, and continuing updating properties across multiple platforms became a task we could not keep up with ourselves. Trinity stepped in to help us out! She handles all of the listing optimization and helps us to stay at the top of the search lists of various platforms.

Favorite BNBBreeze Rental Property: Rosie’s Bungalow - “So unique and full of character!”

Andie Witbeck (Universal Assistant)

Between re-ordering supplies, signage creation, and a number of other activities, we keep Andie running:) She is Barb’s daughter and currently attending college out in California! We love having her a part of the BNBBreeze Team.

Favorite BNBBreeze Rental Property: The Toasted Marshmallow - "It looks like a hobbit home!"

Lizzy Sommers (Inspector)

She does a little bit of everything! Showing up to a rental that is worn down or has broken amenities is rather disappointing. Lizzy makes sure that doesn't happen! She is the inspector for all of our FL properties. Her team includes her young girls, Finley and Quinn, who go with her to the properties and make sure to check off every item on our inspection list so that the home is looking as incredible as it can for each and every guest! 

Favorite BNBBreeze Rental Property: Sea Gem - Love that it is right on the canal!
