Brian Harris

The Owner of Harris Vacation Rentals

Hello, I’m Brian Harris – the owner and founder of Harris Vacations. For over 6 years, I have worked hard to provide only the top-quality property management and vacation rental services in Gulf Shores, Alabama. However, though the history of Harris Vacations began in 2013, my experience in the vacation rental industry goes back much further.

Founding Harris Vacation Rentals

Though I grew up in Birmingham, Alabama, my parents bought our first Gulf Shores beach cottage in 1983 and named it “SH 59.” This is where it all began. I was just 4 months old when they bought SH 59 with my brother and I’s college fund, and we still have that cottage today (though it’s been renamed to Catalina). In other words, I have literally grown up in the business.
Armed with a lifetime of experience in the property management industry, I got my real estate license in 2010, with the sole goal of beginning the process of becoming a broker and starting a management company. I really felt like there was a need in the marketplace for a management company that focused on the owner/investor. As such, in 2013 we officially launched Harris Vacations and began adding owners onto the rental program. Since then, I became a licensed real estate broker in 2013, have been quoted in the WSJ and have been invited to be a member of the National Association of Vacation Rental Managers.
