About Rudy

Call Rudy:

Rudy Younger

Hi, I'm Rudy Younger!

I specialize in the management of beautiful and high-end vacation rental properties in the Hudson Valley and Lake Placid areas of New York state. If you are looking to rent a vacation property for a weekend, week, or month and want something different and unique, you will love the properties in my portfolio. And feel free to connect with me on Linked-in or through this website.

I love what I do!

Ten years ago, I bought my first condo in Lake Placid as an investment and as a place to enjoy a bit when it was not rented. What began as a small rental income business has grown and become the second career I always wanted: my own property management business where I get to meet and work with interesting and wonderful people. That is why I love what I do. Not only do I find my new business fun and exciting but I'm very good at it too!

A wealth of experience!

My work experience has prepared me perfectly for what I'm doing today. My business background is extensive and diverse. For 33 years, I worked at IBM helping to build, test and design mainframe computers, as a MFG Engineer, MFG Test Manager, Materials Management Professional and finally, as a Diversity & Workforce HR Partner. It was at IBM that I developed my analytical skills and honed my interpersonal skills, too. I literally worked with thousands of great people and had a very rewarding and successful career. After my retirement, I worked as a sales consultant for a Honda dealership and sold 325 cars in 3 years. I liked connecting with people and helping them make this kind of important buying decision. But for the entire time I was working there, I was mentally preparing to be my own boss, build my own business and, most importantly, do something that really excited me and was fun! With all my previous experience, it was a natural transition into my second career as the owner of my exciting new business called Rudy's 1 Of A Kind Vacation Rentals.

Dreams DO come true!

After buying my first condo in Lake Placid, NY and successfully increasing the rental income by almost 100% in the first year, I started thinking I could do the same for other property owners. So I earned my New York real estate license (and now my New York real estate brokers license) and formed my own S-Corporation! One by one, I increased my business and it now includes a highly regarded heart surgeon, a former Miss Universe (well, 2nd runner up), a winery owner, a 5th generation Adirondack family, an engineer from Buffalo, a family of lawyers from Texas and on and on. We have had some amazing guests as well with several very famous actors and a very famous British band stay with us, among other very interesting people. My annual rental revenues are in the $500-600,000 range and that is about all I can handle right now. My new and exciting second career is off and running and very challenging, fun, exciting and highly fulfilling!

Well, that was a few years ago, and I still find my new business fun, exciting and fulfilling. I now have a number of great rental properties, including my own, in the Hudson Valley and in Lake Placid. Plus I have started consulting a bit as well. I am living my dream and enjoying my new life. If I can help you with your dream of owning a successful vacation rental property, managing it or consulting on it, please let me know as I’d love to worktogether with you on it!
