Vaios Theodorakos, Founder & Chief Executive Officer
Known industry wide as the “Turn-around Czar”, Vaios learned the value of hard work, financial planning and time management at an early age. As a high school student, he juggled four part-time jobs. At age eighteen with almost thirty thousand dollars in his bank account, Vaios made a life-changing decision to purchase a distressed two-family property instead of a new car.
He quickly saw the potential in transforming undervalued, distressed real estate into quality homes that are a positive part of the local community. And by making client satisfaction a top priority, he also learned the value of resident retention and long-term relationships.
Vaios has since bought and sold hundreds of properties throughout the United States. Using his abilities to recognize potential opportunities and collaborate with financial institutions, he has successfully led VTT Management to become one of the nation’s leading property management companies.

Michael directly oversees 7 VTT departments: Acquisitions, Asset Management, Property Management, Human Resources, Accounting, Compliance, and Information Technology.
