Episode 45: Hosting Landlord Seminars, Featuring Mike Connolly, Broker/Owner of East Bay Property Management

Bob Preston - Thursday, September 17, 2020

This episode is dedicated to property managers wanting to grown their business. Bob discusses hosting landlord seminars with Mike Connolly, Broker/Owner at East Bay Property Management of Freemont, CA. Mike's company has successfully hosted landlord seminars to bolster their business development efforts and grow their rental property portfolio.  Heading into the Fall of 2020, the market may be ripe for gaining new property management clients. Many self-managers of rental properties are not sure how to lease a property at tenant turnover within CDC measures for COVID-19 safety?  Might landlord seminars be an approach for you to bring in new clients to your property management business?
