Property Management Mastermind, Welcomes Andrew Reece, Co-Founder of Inspect Real Estate. He built a property management company in Australia from scratch and transitioned that into property management software to further industry development. We are lucky enough to have Andrew as a keynote speaker at the Property Mangement Mastermind Conference in March of 2020.

Andrew went to university for accounting. Once he graduated, he became an accountant for realtors and real estate agents. He was involved in bringing the ReMax franchise to Australia, which was his entry into real estate as an accountant for the real estate industry. He opened up his agency, ProRentals, with 31 properties under management and grew that to 1756 within ten years.

Listen for a sneak peek of what Andrew is going to present during his class at the Property Mangement Mastermind Conference. It’s a well-known fact that the US is about ten years behind Australia in the real estate industry, and Andrew is the one to help get everyone up to speed. He is going to let everyone in on what has worked for him, what didn’t, and how his property management software can be an asset.

They discuss the differences between property management in Australia and the United States, the regulations, and how much harder it is to get a lender to here in the states. They do roll playing with a script that Andrew’s team uses to get owners that self rent to discuss using a property management company and the value they bring.

Andrew speaks about how they developed the industry tracking software and how it has evolved into the tracking mechanism for all facets of management. He talks about how it helps workflow from maintenance requests to vendors to knowing the job is, and this is just a small part of the whole program.

This episode is one of a kind, and we are fortunate to be able to talk to Andrew and fortify ourselves with knowledge from someone who started as an accountant and now has over 2500 offices that focus on Inspectrealestate.com.au. Grab a pen and paper because you will want to take notes as you listen.

In this episode of Property Management Mastermind, Brad welcomes Kevin Knight. Kevin is the President of Liberty Mangement Inc. He, along with his partners, brought the SureVestor insurance program to the United States from Australia. As a property manager for over 20 years, he is very excited to offer this product to his customers.

This program covers what owner's insurance does not and helps alleviate the fear of malicious damage and unpaid rent that owners feel when they hand over their property to renters. This also benefits property managers because it can only be purchased through a property management company, owners do not have access to it any other way.

Kevin believes that this insurance is something that addresses what owners want, and it is so easy that marketing is a breeze. With the rental market, the way it is the ability to offer something so diverse might make the difference when trying to pull in the self-managed landlords.  

Brad and Kevin discuss the PM health group and encourage all property managers to take the time to be as healthy as they can. Kevin says, "the best way to improve your business is to improve your health," which is why SureVestor is sponsoring ten individuals for the 5K run/walk at the NARPM National Conference.

If you are trying to grow your property management company, this is an opportunity you won't want to miss. Listen in to find out about this new way to give your business a boost with a program that benefits all involved. Kevin is so excited about this that he will get you fired up as well. So get ready to be inspired to expand your business.
