OUR TEAM

Ryan Martin

Ryan Martin

One of the owners and founders of Travel Life Vacations, Ryan Martin views travel as being a journey, rather than just a destination. His love of exploring new places with his family launched him into creating TLV. He wanted to share the travel lifestyle with others as a brand, a blog, and a multiple destination vacation source. With 12+ years of experience and incredible knowledge of the industry, he has tremendous insight into every aspect of vacation homes and real estate investment. God has blessed him and Sara with the opportunity to build and design their own homes from the ground up. Ryan has experience as a developer, creating floor plans, interior design and décor, landscaping, real estate photography, marketing, building rental management…. And, in the early stages, even pool maintenance, cleaning, and repairs. Having grown to where TLV is now, Ryan isn’t stopping any time soon. Stay tuned for more!
Sara Martin

Sara Martin

One of the owners of Travel Life Vacations, Sara has always known she loves interior design and décor. So, when she married Ryan at the age of 19, she was more than eager to jump into real estate to have the chance to develop her passion for interior design. Together, building TLV from the ground up, Sara started with weekly housekeeping and laundry, plus redecorating and updating older rental homes that were purchased for the rental market. Over the years, she and Ryan began to build and develop their own homes using the knowledge they’ve gained. 12 years later, Sara has now designed and decorated 7+ homes on TLV from start to finish, helped coordinate redesigns as well as redecorating for TLVs homes! Working side by side with Ryan, Sara has helped build the foundation for TLV to grow to where it is today. Sara has more recently taken a step back to raise their newborn and now heads up the TLV blog in her spare time!
