Welcome to the Show! In today’s episode, Brad is talking with Mike Nelson. Mike has been a broker since 1981 and has had his own business since 1985. He started in a one-room office with a handful of units and grew it over time. Growth was until 2003 when he began approaching it as a business and started measuring KPI, they now have over 1900 units and are still growing. 

Mike speaks about how to bridge the gap between NARPM accounting standards and measuring KPI, the ease with which you can implement the chart of accounts, how to analyze it and how to add more accounts with sub-accounts. Mike also talks about the key metric he uses in his company and how every company will have metrics specific to their business.

In this conversation, they discuss the add-on seminars going on at the Property Mangement Mastermind Conference in Las Vegas in March 2020. Mike will speak about key performance indicators, some of the bullet points that we use in our business today, and then more add on seminar information. Template Alert! Mike will be giving out templates that he has designed so anyone can upload their data and run with it.

Have you heard about the webinar that will be available before the add on seminar? Listen in to find out more about it and how it will prepare you for what to expect and how to be ready to learn everything you can at an intense level at PMMCon 2020. You won’t want to miss the conference so get your tickets now!

Brad is excited to have Mike Schraepfer on this episode of Property Management Mastermind. Mike is the President of Heirloom Property Management in Duluth, MN. He enjoys sharing his experience to help new investors find properties, solve financing, and work through renovations. 

 

Mike started his career as an investor eighteen years ago and built up a portfolio of 126 single-family homes and duplexes. He renovated the properties to lease, and his property management career began. Six years ago, he began managing properties for other individuals, but he is still his biggest client.

 

He manages properties that he owns, which makes him the property manager everyone wants to be. His business of management is running his assets, which puts him in the top tier, probably the top 1% of property managers in the country. His company doesn’t have a 401K for its employees. He decided to go a different way and teach them how to invest and manage properties, and as of right now, his staff owns about 25 units.

 

Mike is one of the speakers at the Property Management Mastermind Conference in March 2020. Listen as he reveals the topic of his presentation and a sneak peek of some of his key talking points. He will discuss how your company can benefit from bringing your maintenance in house and the best software to bring it all together and so much more.

 

Have you purchased your tickets yet? Don’t hesitate; Mike is just one of the many high-level speakers that will be at the event. Listen in for a small taste of what you can expect when a group of elite property managers get together in one place. If you already have your tickets, great! If not visit the PMMCon.com and get them now before they are sold out, this is one conference you won’t want to miss.
