Listen, as Ron shares his bizarre journey to where he is today, and the real estate markets overlap with property management. Rob talks about some topics he will discuss at PMMCON, the wealth of data out there that isn't being collected, and the shifts he believes we will see in the industry in the next five to ten years.

Brad touches on some things about builders and how they have changed how you buy newly built homes.

In this episode of Property Management Mastermind Show, your host Brad Larsen and his guest Christopher Clothier discuss the importance of customer service in the property management industry, what makes a property management company such as Christopher's effective, how Christopher's company came out stronger as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and so much more!

Christopher will be speaking at the Property Management Mastermind Conference (PPMCON) the afternoon of Friday, May 21st. He is a partner of a family-owned company called REI Nation that has been around for almost twenty years, starting in 2003 as a company that would buy, renovate, and sell property to investors who wanted to own said pieces of property on a long-term basis, and they now manage properties in eleven different cities across the southeastern part of the United States. What’s even more is that they expect to exceed 7,000 properties this year!

Despite all of his impressive success, however, Chris is nothing if not humble. He credits people who have taught him along the way such as his father. He also announces that he still feels that he has a lot to learn and can't wait to listen to and learn from other attendees of the upcoming PMMCON! Be sure to check out his wonderful book, The Turnkey Revolution!

Welcome to the Property Management Mastermind Show with your host, Brad Larsen. Today’s guest is the world-famous Allison DiSarro from Enterprise Bank, formerly known as Seacoast Bank. Listen, as Allison shares her work with property management companies, how each state handles trust account compliance differently, and much more. 

 

Listen as Allison shares her work with property management companies, how each state is different when it comes to trust account compliance and why you need someone who knows what they are doing to set up your trust account. Sometimes, even auditors don’t know if they are set up correctly.

 

Allison also clears up what is and isn’t insured by the FDIC. The FDIC covers accounts per tax ID number unless you have a true trust account, and then each beneficiary is insured for up to $250,000. If the trust account is not set up correctly, you could run into serious trouble should anything happen to the accounts.

 

Allison discusses the merger between Seacoast and Enterprise and what Enterprise saw that was appealing in the much smaller Seacoast Bank. Brad and Allison also talk about trends they see in the industry, like remote teams, remote bookkeepers, mergers, and consolidations. 

 

One thing they are both ready for is for conferences to resume. They miss seeing people face to face and the business opportunities that come from having everyone in one place.

 

**Announcement** The Property Management Mastermind Conference is May 19-21 at the Gaylord Resort in Grapevine, TX

 

In this episode:

[02:07] Welcome to the show, Allison!

[02:25] Allison shares her background and her work with property management companies.

[04:48] Allison talks about how different each state is with trust account compliance.

[05:58] An auditor doesn’t know if a trust account is set up as a true trust account at the bank.

[06:54] Allison discusses the risks she tries to protect property management companies from.

[09:28] Allison shares what the FDIC covers. Is it per account or per tax ID number?

[11:17] When you have a true trust account set up, each beneficiary’s tax ID number is insured up to 250,000.

[14:18] Allison discusses Seacoast merging into Enterprise, which happened in November 2020.

[16:01] Allison talks about what Enterprise was interested in when they merged with Seacoast.

[18:30] Allison shares why the merge was such a good marriage.

[23:02] What are some trends you see in the industry?

[24:30] Allison talks about the incentives to property management companies in doing business with Enterprise.

[27:13] Allison speaks about why doing business with them is beneficial as opposed to other banks.

[30:02] Brad shares the trend he is seeing around remote team members.

[30:30] Allison talks about remote bookkeepers and how they are becoming more and more prevalent.

[33:11] Allison discusses mergers and consolidations and the trend she sees now.

[36:18] Brad believes that the industry is insulated by its own fragmentation.

[39:39] Allison says that HomeVault came out strong, and each person has a clear path of what they are supposed to do.

[41:52] Brad talks about Covid shutting down the conferences and the conferences that may be able to happen in 2021.

[45:17] Allison believes conferences are needed and have been very missed.

[48:39] Brad cautions any seller out there, let a business broker come in and white label you to get competing offers.

[50:02] Once you sign on the dotted line, the deal still isn’t over; there are always pushbacks.

[53:34] Thank you for being on the show!

Welcome to the Property Management Mastermind Show with your host, Brad Larsen. Today we are talking to three participants of the Manager's Round Table, and they will talk about some details of what they learned and how it worked for them and get a feel for what we can potentially improve on to make it a better system.

 

Manager's Round Table is a platform we created because we identified a need for a mastermind. Because it's a lot easier said than done, we created this platform where we have facilitators that organize the group and go through checklists of items they want to talk about in a group format twice a month.

 

Listen as David shares his two key takeaways from the round table, including a resident benefits package and a discussion on an owner's manual. They challenged Karen to benchmark where her competitors are and an owner's zoom call she is implementing quarterly. Brian was excited about the SWOT analysis he went through with the group and ways to earn more revenue for his business.

 

David, Karen, and Brian discuss some other lessons learned during the round tables and discuss continuing the format from now on as Brian says, why wait until a conference to improve your business when you can go to a round table every two weeks and bring something back to implement.

 

**Announcement** The Property Management Mastermind Conference is May 19-21 at the Gaylord Resort in Grapevine, TX

 

In this episode:

[03:15] Welcome to the show, Karen, David, and Brian!

[03:36] David introduces himself and his business in Phoenix.

[04:32] Karen shares who she is and her business in California.

[05:12] Brian from San Antonio speaks about who he is and his business.

[08:26] David was able to have the group go through a residents benefits package and discuss an owner's manual they implemented.

[10:20] Brad gives his insights on David's lessons learned.

[12:41] Karen says they challenged her to benchmark where her competitors were,

[13:28] Brad talks about secret shoppers and the benefits of it.

Listen as Brad and Ashley discuss landlords that want to do the maintenance themselves instead of allowing the property management company to take care of them. They discuss why this is a bad practice and how the property management company can become liable.

 

They finish the conversation with a discussion about pet deposits. Charge them, don't charge them, or call them fees, and how Brad protects his renters with a program he has at RentWerx.

Nov 10, 2020

Welcome to the Property Management Mastermind Show with your host, Brad Larsen. Today, Brad's guests, Todd Ortscheid and Scott Brady discuss going big or staying small, the merits of both, debating an article Scott wrote that with bullet points from Todd to flush out some key issues.

 

Todd shares his arguments for staying in the 200 - 500 door range with your property management company, whereas Scott believes that you need to go big and have multiple revenue streams. Scott says that if you take the DNA of a small company and overlap it into a larger company, it's a winning combination. 

 

They both agree that you should know your why, why you want to stay small, or why you want to grow, know your purpose, and have a vision. Scott says that if you have a larger company, you have higher revenue, and it's easier to get a buyer. Todd disagrees and shares that a small company with a strong gross revenue is sometimes more desirable when selling.

 

Todd speaks about how automation and outsourcing are the ways to stay lean and mean and run a profitable company. Scott says that if you have a target client, compelling pricing, a great brand, and great customer service, you can grow your company and stay profitable.

 

There is nothing bad about making money just to be making money, and Scott believes you should monetize everyone you meet. The purpose of profitability is to provide a great service, and Todd has a fee program Brad recommends. There are two sides to each coin, but basically, if you know what you want and know how to get there, it doesn't matter your management company's size. You can make it profitable.

 

In this episode:

[01:40] Welcome to the show!

[02:36] Todd shares a little about himself.

[02:53] Scott introduces himself and what he does.

[03:48] Todd discusses his argument points for staying in the 200 - 500 doors range.

[04:23] Scott defines his argument points for going bigger for multiple income streams.

[05:34] Brad shares his insights into this debate from where his business stands.

[06:28] Scott believes you should take a small company's DNA and overlap that into a larger company.

[08:06] Todd says you need to know why you are doing what you are doing, find your purpose.

[10:33] Scott agrees with Todd that you have to know your why, but he disagrees that the number of doors you manage is about ego.

[12:05] Scott believes that people look at your gross revenue when you sell your business, so bigger companies have bigger revenues.

[14:17] Todd talks about the exit strategy idea, and he doesn't believe that you have to be bigger to have a strong gross revenue.

[17:27] Todd shares his techniques for staying lean and becoming profitable.

[18:28] Todd believes that automation and outsourcing are the keys to running a highly profitable company.

[20:56] Scott discusses staff and how owners get attached to their property managers, so if you are growing, you have a better chance of keeping your staff.

[23:16] Brad shares that he is always thinking of the how.

[24:26] Scott talks about having a target client, compelling pricing, a great brand, and great customer service, which is how he believes he is growing.

[27:41] Todd discusses how to get lean and mean and get your business to where you really want it.

[28:57] Start by mapping out your processes and procedures so you can get your VA's doing your work and automate.

[30:31] Scott talks about monetizing everyone he meets, not just the owners.

[32:40] Todd says there is nothing bad about making money just to be making money.

[33:15] The purpose of profitability is to provide a great service.

[35:25] Todd has a fee program that Brad recommends you look at.

[36:05] Brad speaks about PMMCON in May 2021.

[37:24] Todd discusses capital allocation and defines how to do it.

[39:58] The average profitability of a property management company is 6%.

[41:19] Scott shares his insight into allocating capital; he says his best investment is his company.

[43:56] What percentage of property management companies live month to month?

[47:25] Thank you for being on the show!
