Joe Riley
Founder & Owner

Get to Know Us

Established in late 2017 by Joseph and Rachel Riley, Patriot Family Homes traces its origins to a pivotal moment when Captain Joe Riley was deployed to Afghanistan. Sensing an unmet need for furnished temporary housing near military bases, the Rileys capitalized on their insight by listing their home near Fort Benning on Airbnb. Their astute observation soon evolved into a dedicated venture as they expanded their portfolio, acquiring four properties in close proximity to Columbus, Georgia by the close of 2018.

In 2019, despite unforeseen circumstances that saw Joe deployed to Ukraine, he remained steadfast in overseeing operations, orchestrating a team of veterans and military spouses to manage the burgeoning portfolio. By 2020, the company had grown to encompass 50 homes, a number that doubled to 100 by 2021. Today, Patriot Family Homes stands as a testament to their unwavering commitment, boasting a seasoned team of over 150 professionals and offering more than 500 short-term rentals across 30 markets.
