I consider myself a seasoned landlord and have been around for a long time. I knew I was probably still doing a lot of things the "Old School" way. After taking this class I realized how important it is to stay up to date. I am glad I took this course and let Denise bring me back to the real world of CYA. Thanks Denise!!
These classes had the most useful information than any other CE class I've ever taken. Great tips and examples shared to help you fully understand the process. Recommend to EVERYONE that is currently or looking into property management. Looking forward to taking more of your classes!
Thanks for a great class! I can't wait to implement your lease and other paperwork suggestions. Lots of great information to help keep my rentals organized and on track. Haven't been to a CE class that was as useful and informative as this one in a long time.
Extremely useful for anyone who works with residential leases from the landlord's side. Recommended.
I just wanted to let you know that I thoroughly enjoyed your course, Writing a GREAT Lease. It truly was refreshing to attend a course where I felt I actually benefited from the time spent. Thank you. Jenny Grubich.( ABR).Consumer Real Estate, Tuscaloosa
