After Mark Morze and his family moved to SWFL, he began exploring the idea of owning his own business. When a franchise broker called about iTrip Vacations, Mark felt his 15 years of property management experience concurrent with 22 years in corporate sales, made it the ideal opportunity. iTrip Vacations was founded in 2008 in Panama City to provide a concierge level of service to homeowners who wanted to rent out their home seasonally. As one of only three Elite Software Partners of Homeaway/VRBO, iTrip converts vacation shoppers into buyers at a rate 5X greater than the next closest competitor. Mark said, “In other words, if you want to book your home more often and make more money, work with iTrip Vacations Marco Island.”

Mark prides himself on taking care of an owner’s property like it is his own and ensuring guests have a fabulous vacation which is something he and his wife Sarah love to do. Sarah is co-owner in the business and has been an integral part of our success. “Becoming iTrip franchisees gave us an opportunity to work together and bring our young daughters with us as we meet new clients, our guests and make new friendships. My wife and I are committed to being engaged members of the Marco Island community and to support other local businesses. Our goal isn’t to be the biggest, it’s to be the best. There are a lot of great businesses on the Island and we want to count ourselves among them!”

iTrip Vacation’s 20-person digital marketing team focuses on marketing homes through extensive distribution channels, using customized content, a best-in-class software platform and processes that allow properties to be seen by a worldwide audience.

iTrip is an industry leader in the 150+ markets iTrip serves. iTrip can even facilitate introductions among their homeowners so maybe they stay in your condo in Marco while you go skiing in Colorado in theirs!
