Well of course it does, my polling does not discriminate on those tenants that choose an apartment over a house, this actually happens in all markets. Maybe if you knew your market, you would realize that. Oh wait, you do, that's why your operating at double digit vacancies, because you know it so well. Good to see that continuing education courses are doing some good.

You would be correct on your percentage, however since I have said more than once that I am managing over 100 properties, yet again there is a problem with your math...BIG SURPRISE!!   And as far as my site is concerned, I will be the 1st to admit, I am the worlds worst in updating my site, but then again it would be a daily routine for me, and since I don't really have time to spend hours on discussion boards, or updating a website, as I prefer to spend the time a little more productive, I don't know, like actually working for my clients. Wish we all saw it that way.

Still waiting on the name of your company? Or did you simply dismiss that like you have this topic? I mean you don't have anything to hide, do you? Like your true vacancy rate, which is probably in the 15-20% range, which is more common. Maybe your hiding the number of evictions, you say 1, I say I have a bridge I will sell you. What's the name of your company? 

You say idiot, I say what is the difference between a non-licensed idiot and a licensed one, I would offer this up. Maybe the non-licensed idiot is actually smarter than you, as they have not wasted money on a license and CE, and still have no clue on what they are doing. But then again, your the one with all the degrees, now aren't you!

So I take it we are no longer discussing your incompetence on polling, another big shocker. So how many time are you going to allow me to show you in your true light? I'm game, just let me know when your ready to change the topic, for the 4th time! 

You know for someone who is so educated, you are completely ignorant to very common things. So your saying you would much rather "be educated" from a book published probably before this RE debacle,meaning it has no relevant factor in today's market or from a publisher in New York, what could they possibly know about the rental market in Ohio, Kansas, Hawaii or anywhere else,versus the only company I know of that conducts exit polling of the actual market. THE TENANTS! You don't see this as a more accurate portrayal of the market. WOW! So to admit, yes I would much rather learn the market from those individuals in the market, versus any state that has no working knowledge on Real Estate investing or managing, they only have interest in DOLLARS! I'm guilty!

People like you are a dime a dozen, you are so in love with yourself, you fail to realize just how little actual market knowledge you have. I conduct webinars monthly, to an average of 300 people on this very topic. I just had a webinar last week, listened to for the full hour by 373 people, I received almost 50 emails of thanks and praise, because I am telling it like it is. From that webinar, I am actually mentoring a PM on the data set, because they are professional enough to realize that a change is needed, because of this current market. And by the way, I am doing it at no charge for this particular PM, as it is one of my clients PM in another city, he listened in, and agreed that the way he was doing it could use some updating. In other words, a complete opposite of you, your in denial even when your proven wrong, that's professional isn't it!! 

This current market has never been seen in the US, and will never be seen again. PM's are faced with tenants that have been evicted because of foreclosure, prior to the law being passed. How do you deal with those tenants? People like you would automatically reject them, even though it was not their fault. But your to narrow minded to see past that, that's why you and so many other PM's are struggling with this market. 

And yes, I have placed 3 tenants in this exact scenario, they were all evicted because of a failed portfolio. I required them to provide rent receipts, which they had no problem providing. As it turns out, they are A+ renters, never late, never excuses. Since I make the effort to consider ALL consequences, I don't have a problem with renting to these types of tenants, because sometimes bad things happen to good people.

Yes, for commercial properties if the property manager is going to lease, rent, list, procure prospects or negotiate, assist, or offer to perform any of those acts, her or she will need a broker's license. A salesperson working under a broker may engage in such activities. According to the Kansas Department of Real Estate a broker's license is not required to manage property if the property at issue is a residential property...

So basically any idiot can manage residential property there without a license.  Shame your site actually lists COMMERCIAL property managment too - which does require a brokers license, which you now admit you don't have.  Hmmm...  Your site says, "Whether your interest is Commercial Apartments or Single Family Homes, rest assured, the exit polling answers all the questions. ...'  

The site also listed 8 vacancies in February.  His site says he maintains a 1:75 ratio (meaning one person manages 75 units.)  8 out of 75 units is a 10.6% vacancy rate.

A RE license in KS may be a one week course.  Not in OH.  Education classes, passing state and national exams to show you know what you learned, mentoring by a RE broker, followed by continuing education classes every year to keep you current on laws, trends...  Then more classes to obtain a Property Management designation, along with other RE designations.  But you are a "professional" property manager that is neither licensed nor believes in continuing education?!!  I have no doubt you know plumbing.  But actual property management?  Doubt it.

Sorry KC, I was actually working.  You remember that - showing places, signing leases?  Oh wait, you are too busy hyping yourself and some ridiculous "new" system (that isn't new at all).  I'm not promoting myself, selling myself, nor advertising my company.  I have never hyped my services or company on this website.  I'm here to actually HELP people, not sell them something with smoke and mirrors.  Got to go.  Have important clients to email who want a 500k house.  Also, signed up for 6 more hours of continuing education tomorrow.   A favorite quote, "If you think education is expensive, try ignorance."   Shame that you don't believe in education!

Oh, ok so now it's not a new system at all. You start out by bashing a system you knew nothing about, but now you say it's not that new at all...hmmm. Could you please make up your mind, your continued approach at being all over the map, gets confusing for us common idiots. 

Wow, you managed to fine the time to reply to 1 email...jesus how did you do that.

Let's see! John's Monday March 5, 2012

Up and atom at 6 am, quick breakfast a couple of cups of coffee and out the door by 7am.

Check on the 8 renovations currently in progress, do a drive by visual of 6 new houses to manage, yes that's 6 more, after already signing up 16 the week before. Had a quick 15 minute meeting with leasing agent to get caught up on the weekends events, she actually got 5 properties rented this weekend, 3 of which were brand new to us, just a miniscule 3 days ago. I just hate it when my marketing doesn't work, maybe I need those CE classes. I admit, I don't sign the leases anymore, just can't find the time for it, but then again that's why I have a leasing agent. Anyway, had to inspect 6 houses, as I have 3 clients that are begging me for a property, can't let them down in favor of a discussion board. Will be making offers on 4 of them tomorrow, will no doubt get them, I always do. Had to call my money partners, to let them know we are buying 4 more houses, they are fine with that, after all they only make 17% on their money for 90 days, why wouldn't they be. Had to rush across town to a luncheon at one of KC's finest steak houses, to meet with city inspector, city manager and the county assessor. Had to finalize the deal on a 11K sq. building, that has been vacant for 4 years, the city wanted to tear it down, but I convinced them otherwise. You see I managed to put a proposal together for my client, that will get him all in on this building for 345K, gross rents of nearly 8K per month, how's that for return. But probably best of all, managed to negotiate with the county and city, to approve a 15 year tax abatement on the property...god I wish I was educated like you.  Left the luncheon at around 2pm, ran back across town to personally inspect a property that was causing a tenant some grief with raccoon's, met my pest man over there, struck a plan and delivered that tenant a $50 gift card to anywhere she chooses for her problems. I will admit, I did not authorize that with my client, but after talking to him, he had no problems with it, he knows I know what I am doing out here, after all, he only owns over 100 properties nationwide. Ran back over to a renovation to fire 2 employees for not showing up to the job site until 1 pm, called my foreman had a 20 minute conversation with him, basically telling him it better not happen again. That left me with getting back to the office around 4 pm, just in time to make final travel arrangements to Toronto to meet a group of investors, to help them establish their company here in the states, will be bringing along my CPA and was planning on my attorney making the trip, but he can't. Had to answer about 30 emails, from clients and potentially new clients. Finally left the office around 6 pm, had a nice dinner with the family, and was on the webinar at 8 pm, to only a crowd of 286 people, far below my 300 average. Was off the webinar by 9:15, and what do you know, 22 emails within 15 minutes of the webinar ending. 

Boy, OHLandlord how did you manage to find the time to answer that email...geez I bet your exhausted...

Rough day!  So the LEASING AGENT rented 5 more properties this weekend.  You only placed the ads on them.  Did you show them?  Screen those apps?  Sign the lease?  Nope.  Sounds like SHE's done a great job for which YOU took the credit (of course).  She needs more pay! 

Then you greased some palms for lunch, paid off a tenant irate that she has holes big enough for racoons to crawl into her house, dealt with your incompetent employees, raked a foreman over the coals for his employees (not his) actions, planned another trip away before spending the grand 2 hours a day of family time, and then had to spend more time promoting yourself again. 

Again, I do not need to hype myself, advertise my company, or sell anything on this board.  I am not egocentricand insecure like you.  I donate my time, education, and experience to help other LLs with problems, not to sell anything.  I am here to help others for free.  I expect nothing in return.  You wouldn't know anything about that.

yes, that's right! As I don't DO what most other PM's do, which is try and do it by myself, or be so understaffed the clients properties end up like yours, massive vacancies. I do appreciate you once again validating my research. You know it was you that said it didn't accurately portray the US, however you have confirmed again exactly what I said in this topic. I appreciate that!

So how much does she make? You apparently KNOW everything, how much do I pay her? 

Since it's obvious you know nothing of house construction or where to even start on assembling a construction crew, you would be better off canning this topic, as you stand no chance with me on that one. Stick to what you know, double digit vacancies and more interested in selling your MLS listings, than helping the clients that have hired you to do just that. 

Greased palms? Really! It's called negotiations, I would think you being a realtor who spends hundreds of dollars in CE courses (that are working wonders) would have covered that a time or two.

See here is the reality of MR. OHLandlord, you only rely on opinions, either because you do not realize there is a significant difference between an opinion versus a fact, or you have no clue on how to achieve facts. 

I don't help people for free, again your opinion, that apparently means only something to you. I just spent the last week helping over 1000 people understand what property management really is, I did that for free! So again, your OPINION is dead wrong. I mentor investors constantly at no charge, I mentor PM's who are mature enough and professional enough to want to learn what exit polling can actually do for them. I realize you can never do this, as you don't even know how to conduct a poll, but have you helped over a 1000 people in your life, let alone a week?

Yes, I spend only 2 hours a week with my family, because they love the lifestyle I provide for them. You see I bust my ass 5 days a week, so I can have the weekend to spend entirely with them. You see I am not understaffed and have no problems taking the weekends off. It's called professionalism and a commitment to my clients.

Since you are such the concerned citizen, why don't you spend some of the time you DONATE to this board and probably a dozen others, and actually do what your being contracted to do, RENT SOME HOUSES!!

So let's see you won't defend your tired techniques, that are obviously working so well, and now you won't defend your own company. That sends up some serious red flags! What are you hiding? Are you really that much of a coward that you don't want me to dig up the dirt that is obviously surrounding your company?

You know I have posted these topics on several boards and it never surprises me when someone like you comes along and starts acting their age. It's a shame there is no way to actually confirm someone's age on these boards. The reality is this, you present yourself on this board as someone who likes to here themselves talk,you say I am egocentric, yet you have posted over 2800 times. Get over yourself, you are not as knowledgeable as you think, or wish. The reality is your nothing more than an immature child, in an adult's body. You start bashing people when they don't follow you to the letter, but then you back down when your proven wrong , time and time again. 

I looked over some of your 2800 posts, and some of them were irresponsible. I even remarked on that one when you said if the tenant was able and willing to replace a garage door, then let him do it. This is very irresponsible of any PM to give that advice, it could end up in your client being sued. Since it's apparent you have never done nothing more to a house than caulk some windows, replacing a garage door can be very dangerous as the springs that are on that door, are under some incredible tension, and when they break, they can seriously injure someone. Your supposedly licensed and so you should have some knowledge of the law, yet you foolish post that remark, in no regards for the owner of the property and what could happen.

I know exactly what you pay her.  TOO LITTLE, especially since she is doing a job YOU take credit for.  Give that hard working gal a raise!  And how exactly is that professional to take credit for someone else's work???

You don't mentor investors.  If these posts are any indication, you merely hype yourself to them.  Tell them how great you and your "system" are.  Try to sell them on your services under the guise of helping them.  I ask for nothing when I help someone and rarely mention my company or fees.  You hype yours at every turn.

I would rather leave the unit open an extra WEEK than fill it with an unqualified tenant.  You have said you put evicted tenants in places, tenants without 3x the income, etc.  I won't put unqualified people in my places just to make a buck so my family can love a lifestyle.  You can justify it anyway you want, but it comes down to making YOU money.  There are many things more important in life than making an extra dollar at someone else's expense just so you can live a lifesyle.  I'd rather live a comfortable lifestyle with the knowledge that I did the proper thing, than stuff places with unqualified tenants so I could make more money.  That's irresponsible.

If you would rather spend all your time trying to convince people that you know more than them, trying to make more money for yourself and your lifestyle, by placing unqualified tenants in others' places, at the expense of any family life - feel free to do so in KC.  I'll do my job properly, placing only qualfied tenants, make money for my owners, and spend my free time volunteering, helping others, and loving my family.

BTW I have made 2800 posts here, helping others for free, for 5 years.  That's 1 1/2 posts per day.  And I will continue to help others here for free, as long as I am able.
