Patrick Carter 

Co-Founder and President 

Patrick enjoys spending time outdoors with his family of four. Whether hiking, climbing, boating, fishing or something in between, you can find him outdoors when he is not busy buying, selling and renting real estate for his family’s established real estate rental business, Carter Company.  Years of real estate investing experience coupled with a decade and a half of executive management focused on clients, growth, and development has now afforded him the opportunity to help launch another dream, StayOver.

As President of StayOver, Patrick is committed to providing an exceptional experience for the vacationer and owner/investor clients alike, down to the very last detail. “From the first initial contact or booking to checking out, we want our clients/renters to have a fantastic, stress-free getaway. We also want the same for the owners who have entrusted us to manage their properties. Happy renters make for happy homeowners/investors.”
