Alexandra Johnston moved to San Diego to pursue her career as a Navy Physician. Outside her career, she provides service and cares for others as an Airbnb host. A few months ago, Alex decided to invest in her first real estate property, which had one small office on the lot and an area for parking.

With the help of her brother, Christian, Chief Operating Officer at Multitaskr, they evaluated the property in terms of price, location, and potential. They realized that this property needed a major house hack. Multitaskr presented the home remodel solution to get the highest value and best use out of the lot. Christian suggested that Alex work with Multitaskr, as they have been the one-stop-shop for all Christian's real estate needs. 

Neighborhood Law Office Becomes Great Airbnb Location

The once law office was converted into two units, separated by a wall. Unit number one, Alexandra’s Airbnb prodigy, is 600 sq ft living space, with two bedrooms, one bathroom, a lounge area, and a kitchen corner. Unit number two is a 520 sq ft living space, with one bedroom, one bathroom, a kitchen, living room, and Alexandra’s temporary home.

The remodel installed new flooring, closets in each bedroom (for the Airbnb unit), an additional wall to divide the living spaces, and painted the walls to refresh the space. Alex's property is only 10 minutes from San Diego’s Gaslamp District, Seaport Village, and Petco Park. Other tourist attractions and fun neighborhoods nearby include South Park and North Park. Alexandra shared, "Since putting my Airbnb on the site in November, the place has been booked every weekend." Although weekdays are not continuously occupied, she shared that a weekend's income from Airbnb is outstanding.

The future of this hot spot Airbnb and lot is bright. As Alexandra plans to build two accessory dwelling units in the back of the duplex, one will be her primary home. The other will be rented out for long-term use. This doctor loves serving the community, whether in a clinic or helping someone feel most at home.
