Stephen Witt, Proprietor at The Highlands Concierge, has been recognized as a Marquis Emerging Leader for their contributions and achievements in the field of hospitality.

Providing above-and-beyond, white-glove concierge service to guests of short-term rentals, Mr. Witt dedicates himself to transforming historic properties into unforgettable living experiences. Serving as the proprietor, director of operations, and creator of The Highlands Concierge since 2022, he showcases Airbnbs and rental properties and extends 24-hour “true luxury” access to his guests—be it offers private chefs, chauffeur services, in-home spa treatments, and outdoor activities like hikes—across such North Carolina properties as Big Billy Cabin, Highlands Fall Retreat, The 1937 Cabin, and Winfield Farms Manor, as well as in South Florida, Georgia, Florida, and Tennessee. He aims to provide the same services found only in fine-dining restaurants and 5-star hotels.

Mr. Witt previously accrued guest services and hotel operations experience as the director of Hotel Operations at Highlander Wells and Highlander Mountain House, overseeing the front desk, housekeeping, and maintenance operations for more than 30 rooms, oversaw the scheduling of more than 50 team members, and resolving guests’ complaints and inquiries.

Growing up, Mr. Witt’s family worked as plant growers in South Florida. While he pursued a bachelor’s degree in liberal arts and sciences from Jacksonville University, he ultimately dropped out as he felt it was too “cookie cutter” for him and preferred to work and carve out his path instead at 19 years old. He ultimately found success as an estate concierge at Old Edwards Inn and Spa.

Outside of his primary endeavors, Mr. Witt volunteers for the Humane Society.
