On today's show, Brad is going old school, having a throwback mastermind session with Paul Rush. One property management company owner to another they are hashing out some of the challenges they both face in the respective areas. They are having a question and answer session to give us an idea of what is working in their companies. 

Paul owns Augusta Rental Homes in Augusta, Georgia, and they manage single-family and multifamily units. He got into real estate to flip houses, but he ended up with some rental homes and has now been in the property management business for about four years. 

Brad and Paul discuss new acquisitions, the issues that can arise and how to stay on top of it all, and what happens if you don't. They talk about Paul's owner first philosophy, leasing fees, self-assist property showing, and some great things he has implemented in the last 12 months. You don't want to miss this episode; they have some good ideas that might give you a more profitable business.

Show Notes

[02:53] Brad introduces Scott Brady.

[03:33] Scott tells us about himself and what he will be teaching at the conference.

[05:30] There will be 2 hours of mastermind sessions the first day of the conference.

[05:55] Here are the top 10 mistakes and how not to make them, in no particular order.

[06:32] Don’t pick a price, pick a strategy, they charge a flat fee and a percent of rent collected.

[12:24] Don’t take just any client that comes in the door, are they your perfect customer?

[18:00] If you don’t solve your owner pain points you don’t have value with the relationship, it's the right thing to do.

[24:33] Not taking advantage of the local real estate community, get the local agents to refer their clients to you.

[27:10] Brad talks about the Business Development Mastermind Seminar in Atlanta in January 2020 that Property Management Mastermind is putting on and Scott is speaking.

[30:18] You have to be completely transparent in this industry, make sure your website has updated information, contract and pricing.

[35:28] Direct mail with transparency is very valuable but you must manage your expectations.

[38:39] Taking no risk in a mistake, you must take risks to get ahead, you won’t always get it right but you must take risks.

[43:31] Get out of the business and work on the business, you will be able to look more strategically at your business.

[47:15] Don’t help other people get rich without getting rich yourself, sell every property that you manage, buy one property per year at least create assets, that is what will make you rich.

[51:55] Improve your business, go to conferences, syndicate or implement programs. Invest in your business with your time by learning what your strengths and weaknesses are.

[54:15] Brad tells us about implementation day at the conference, he wants people to come out of the conference with a call to action list.

[55:20] Scott says that he wants everyone to look at their businesses differently, make changes now to see big differences in the future.
