Your Local Management Team
Qualifying Broker – Founding Partner
The Kaiser name has been associated with the vacation rental, property management, and real estate industry for over 40 years and has provided an unparalleled level of service ever since. Glen Kaiser, Kaiser Vacation Rentals Qualifying Broker & Founding Partner, joined the family business in 1999, bringing a 15-year career in business development.
Glen’s ability to grow the business over the years through authentic relationship building and a caring approach in everything he does is part of the reason why the Kaiser name is more like a legacy. We are sure he wouldn’t want to take that much credit because he believes everyone plays a critical role in Kaiser Vacation Rentals’ success. As he’d say, ‘a rising tide lifts all boats’.
In 2021, Glen took his well-rounded portfolio of property management and relation-oriented skills to help found Kaiser Vacation Rentals, a luxury vacation rental home company. Having the Kaiser name at the forefront of the vacation rental industry again has attracted some of the most experienced and skilled hospitality professionals, creating a dream team to service every aspect of the business.
Leonard Kaiser, Kaiser Vacation Rentals Founding Partner, has been a critical pillar to the Kaiser story, having been the visionary and founder of their legacy dating back to January 1980. Brother to Glen Kaiser, Leonard leads by example, guiding and encouraging those around him to be the best they can be. Naturally, his drive for excellence in his work product is intuitively a drive for excellence in Kaiser Vacation Rentals guest and owner satisfaction.
Over the years, Leonard has been on a trajectory of leadership in the real estate and property management industries and in many civic and charitable organizations that are local to Alabama’s Gulf Coast communities. Later on in his career, Leonard focused on real estate sales, operating Kaiser Sotheby’s International Realty. He has played a critical role in creating Kaiser Vacation Rentals, using his expertise and experience to position Kaiser Vacation Rentals as a reputable brand even in its infancy.
Sharing the coastlines of Orange Beach, Gulf Shores, and Fort Morgan with visitors near and far is the driving force behind Leonard and the entire Kaiser family. Being born and raised here, he knows it’s a unique treasure to maintain, foster, and share with the world.
Director of Accounting
With over 25 years of experience in finance, Gayle Staimpel’s fascination with problem-solving and numbers began early. Starting in the reservations department for Kaiser Vacation Rentals over 20 years ago, she eventually assumed roles in vacation rental accounting and association management bookkeeping before taking on her current role as Director of Accounting. With extensive knowledge of escrow/trust accounting best practices and a demonstrated history in hospitality, Gayle’s strengths lie in her diverse industry experience, analytical skills, and accounting expertise, making her an invaluable asset to the team.
Gayle first met Glen when she brought her newborn son into work to introduce him to everyone. That was 23 years ago, and what appealed to her back then is still important to her today, family atmosphere and community involvement, hallmarks of Kaiser Vacation Rentals.
Although the vacation rental property management business is very competitive, the Kaiser family name is one of the most recognized in the industry, making it an extremely dynamic environment. As Gayle dives into her new role, she looks forward to the challenges each day brings and making significant contributions to the Kaiser team.
Director, Business Development & Property Management
Tabitha Williams’ journey with the Kaiser family started back in 2011; however, her career in hospitality goes well beyond that. With over 16 years of experience in hospitality and association management, Tabitha has done it all: supervising reservations teams, handling owner relations and property management (maintaining one of the highest owner satisfaction rates in the company, might we add), and much more.
The Kaiser legacy was known for its reputation of stability, continuing education, and growth. So after spending several years helping run a reservations call center for a local property management company, Tabitha began her career with them, working in Guest Services. In fact, Glen was the one to bring Tabitha into the fold. Tabitha’s service skills and knowledge of the industry were immediately apparent, and she quickly moved to the property management department, where Glen mentored her along the way.
After eight years working for the Kaiser family, a national acquisition changed the tides for many local professionals, including Tabitha. Still, as we know, a little elbow grease goes a long way, and Tabitha puts in the elbow grease in everything she does. It wasn’t long before Glen brought Tabitha on in 2021 as Kaiser Vacation Rentals’ Director of Business Development & Property Management, allowing her experience to be shared with owners and partners along Alabama’s Gulf Coast.
The ‘T’ in Team
At Kaiser Vacation Rentals, we believe the ‘T’ in Team stands for Togetherness. Together, our team works to provide exceptional service to our guests, transparent and honest communication to our owners, and proactive participation in our community. We are your local management team, and we look forward to serving you.
