Expertise

I can answer questions concerning anything involving property management. This includes assisting Tenants, Owners/Landlords, and other Realtors/Property Managers. I am knowledgeable in contracts, documentation, filing systems, time management, personnel management, policies and procedures, Tenant/Owner relations, disputes, property management, home-owner associations, and much more. I work in Wyoming, but am happy to entertain questions from anywhere. I do not give legal advice but have a list of statutes pertaining to each state and will be happy to point you in the right direction.

Experience in the area

I own and manage the largest Property Management company in my area. I single-handedly manage over 145 units for 50+ owners and I own rental property myself. I've seen 18% growth since purchasing the company six months ago and project another 20% in the next 12 months. But anyone can put warm bodies in a rental and call themselves a Property Manager. The difference is, I've improved the quality of Tenants, I've increased the rate of return on over 60% of the properties, and my Tenants/Owners are happy! Prior to becoming a Realtor and Property Manager, I was an Operations Manager with 110 personnel, an annual operating budget of $4 Million and over $20 Million in inventory.

Organizations

Director, Northwest Wyoming Board of Realtors National Association of Realtors Cody Chamber of Commerce Veteran's of Foreign Wars

Education/Credentials

AAS in Information Systems Management, 2001, Community College of the Air Force B.S. in Psychology/Sociology, 2005, Excelsior

What do you like about this subject?

I enjoy helping educate people and enabling them to improve their situation. This could be an Owner seeking ways to increase their rate of return, a Tenant having problems with a Landlord, or a Property Manager looking to improve his business. If you're willing to learn, I'm willing to help!

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

There are a lot of bad Property Managers out there and I hope to improve our reputation. In fact, I entered this career because I enjoy managing, but also because I expected to shine brightly compared to the competition!

Denise,    First off, you don't have much leverage in this situation because you signed the lease and moved in knowing the key wasn't available.  You can't withhold rent.  You probably don't want to terminate
