Adrian Barrett, Founder and CEO

“I ran Lightmaker as a digital technology company building applications for our clients in the banking, healthcare and gaming verticals for over 21 years. My wife and I got into property management by owning rental properties ourselves and we couldn’t believe that there wasn’t a PMS out there that could give us live/real-time data via their Owner Portal. The more we looked at the vacation rental industry, the more we realized there was a huge gap in the market for an easy-to-use, powerful and super flexible property management system. We also wanted a system that had modern Trust Accounting that worked like QuickBooks Online, so, as we couldn’t find one, we built the entire thing over the last 8 years!”

2007 – present, Founder and Director, RESAAS
In 2007 Adrian founded RESAAS (Real Estate Software As A Service) along with Tom Rossiter (now RESAAS Services Inc, CEO) and Adam Biggs (now CTO, LMPM Inc).

RESAAS completed its IPO in 2011 and RESAAS Services Inc was born. RESAAS is now the leading platform in Real Estate with over 480,000 agents on the platform, see:

Clint Skidmore, COO

Clint started as a coder at Whistler.com in 2001, then quickly became General Manager taking the company from a start-up to $15M in revenue in less than 2 years. Clint had found his calling in life!

After Whistler.com he started Enjoy Vacations, My Boutique Travel, then RezServe Technologies. Clint then sold Rezserve to Digitaltown, a public company in 2016. 

Clint met Adrian Barrett, Founder of LMPM Inc in 2014, and their friendship has grown over the years. When Adrian asked Clint to join him in developing a platform that would dominate the vacation property management vertical for years to come, he decided this was his last “moonshot” and he joined LMPM full-time at the end of 2018.

Clint is now LMPM’s Managing Director and manages all product and development activities while advising on Lightmaker’s Board of Directors.

Clint has embraced the opportunity to revolutionize the entire travel vertical with LMPM – a new and exciting take on an aging industry. Clint once again feels like he has found his calling…
