New to the Community Center? Introduce yourself here (Updated)

Hello everyone,


A warm welcome to the Community Center. 


This discussion is for introducing yourself to your fellow Airbnb Community members, as well as welcoming and saying hello to newcomers in return. Thanks to all of you who have already introduced yourself and contributed in our previous thread, here.  


I'm Lizzie and I am the Community Manager here, along with my teammate @Quincy. I have been managing the Airbnb Community Center since it officially opened in November 2015. It is fantastic to speak with amazing community members here. 


To kickstart this topic, I would like to share a few things about myself:


  1. I love to travel, hot or cold it doesn't matter - I'm ready with my sun lotion or a raincoat! 
  2. I play several instruments, but my main one is the flute. I always enjoy a good conversation about music. 
  3. Lastly, over the past year I have become very interested in all things eco/sustainablilty related.


How about you? Any interesting facts or hobbies?


I'm looking forward to hearing from you. 




Thank you for the last 7 years, find out more in my Personal Update.

Dear Russell


I agree with you Airbnb should improve the service quality by appointing professionals. There other competitor is in this market like OYO Home, if Airbnb fail to meet host and customer requirement they will lose the business opportunity. 


Hope the Airbnb management team understand the current market trend and improve their service.


Thank you for raise this issue.


With best regards

Hi Lizzie and Quincy, 

My name is Cari and I am a retired mom of 3 (25, 27 and 35). We moved to California 5 years ago after living in Paris, France for 3+ years and making some wonderful friends there.

This is our (my husband and myself) first time to try Airbnb.  We've never hosted before or even stayed in one, yet!

We do have friends in Le Marais in Paris who have an Airbnb and we have received some great tips from them.

Airbnb on the Coast of California is tricky because of all the zoning regulations.  I honestly need all the help/tips I can get.  

Honestly, the first question I have is how to prepare online for our first renters?  I am talking about after you commit and publish... then what?
