About me
Love serving in the multifamily industry. While for all of us there is some $$, a job, a career, or just something to do, at the end of each day, there are people that call their apartment "home" and we work to care for them.

  • Mr. Garcia,
    Having been in multi family for 17 years as a VP, and now in consulting, I would love to have a 5 minute chat with you sometime. There is nothing more important to me than meeting with successful leaders in the industry, learning from them, and having a new contact for support, friendship and business.
    Hope you have a great day and to hear from you soon.
    Respectfully,
    David W. Dodson

  • As a Seth Godin disciple myself, I only wish that the industry was flooded with these type of folk. From personal experience, I can tell you that there are certainly a few management companies that have the skill at picking these type of people. Mo

  • Good, thoughtful post. Trust there is no real commercial affiliation with the named vendor, and just a sincere appreciation for a service that has drawn disproportionately postive results. The post does beg the question that Craigslist is without c

  • Bill--you do a great job of getting into some great subjects. Keep up the good work. The key is lead follow up. And Bill, in Feb of 2008, I performed a secret shop of your company's portfolio and tracked the agents that followed up. (Happy news f

    As I look at the 20 $20 cards that hit my desk for my son's baseball team, this really hit a nerve. Almost every year, I end up buying at least $100 of the cards and throw them in the trash. I literally walked in tonight, determined to have my son

  • Laura,

    Called your old property...see you are not there anymore. You have an impressive background. If you need help in finding another property/opportunity, just give me a buzz. I am the DC BuildingLink fellow, and when we talked in the past, you were professional and polite.
