Sarah Durbin and I met each other through an affiliate, and I was very impressed by her. She is coming to the conference as a facilitator. Sarah has been in property management since 2006 and currently has five property management companies across four different states. She was the fourth franchise and started out in Vernal, Utah. Within six months of starting in property management, she had 150 units under her company. She then moved to San Jose, California, and Seattle, which is where she bought out a franchise. Next, she moved to South Carolina.

We’ll learn today about how Sarah was able to break into so many markets and be successful in all markets she was in across four different states. Sarah explains her timeframe from city to city and how she was able to manage the previous companies while expanding into new markets. Sarah shares her three best implementation ideas from her experiences with owning multiple property management companies.
