About ME

Hi, I'm Matthew Pesler, the owner and director of Grand Welcome in Cincinnati, Ohio, and Northern Kentucky. I grew up near Dayton OH, where I graduated from Wright State University with a bachelor’s degree in Organizational Leadership. Since then I have lived in numerous cities including Boston, Denver, and Nashville…but am proud to now call Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky my home.

I started out in business management, and more recently am co-owner of a successful insurance agency right here in Cincinnati. My love for travel and hospitality eventually led me to my true passion, vacation rental management. I’m grateful to my family, who have always been my biggest supporters.

Over the past decade, I've built a personal short-term rental portfolio consisting of 30 units throughout the area and have assembled an amazing team that truly goes above-and-beyond to provide the best vacation rental experience.

What I Love About Cincinnati & NKY

In my free time, I enjoy hiking at the numerous beautiful parks, kayaking, golfing at Cincinnati and NKY’s many courses and listening to live music at local venues.  My wife, Marianne, and I appreciate experiencing the diverse food scene, catching a sporting event, and spending time with our son at the zoo, aquarium, and museums.

About Me

Hi, I'm Ian Rickert. I've been in the construction industry since the age of 14 and love revitalizing old buildings in and around Montgomery County. Seeing old buildings come back to life is a true passion of mine.

I pride myself on quality work ensuring that every job is completed as if were for myself and my family. I've had the opportunity to hone my skills in leadership, problem-solving, and team management throughout my career, and I'm ready to put all of that experience to work for you.

What I Love About Cincinnati & NKY

My family and I love attending the local events and parades of Mt. Adams. The architecture and masonry is always a favorite of mine, along with Mt. Adams Bar & Grill.

What I Love About Cincinnati & NKY

My favorite thing about Northern Kentucky and Cincy is the great food,  parks and museums. We enjoy going as a family to the Cincinnati Children's Museum, going out to sushi at Wabi Sabi and grabbing ice cream at Piper's Cafe. We never struggle to find new and fun things to do as a family.
