Hear the “War Stories” from the Southland’s top property management experts and learn about some of the complicated issues they encountered and how these property management experts resolved them. Our experts will discuss some of the “stickiest,” toughest, challenging, and yes, quite possibly the sexiest situations they have had to deal with during their professional careers.  During this approximately 1-hour online, interactive webinar, you will have an opportunity to ask your questions and seek advice about some of the challenges you face today.

Possible Topics Include:

  • Dealing with illegal activities at your property.
  • Handling difficult tenants that threaten other residents and disturb the peace and enjoyment at your properties.
  • Advice on how best to navigate difficult tenants.
  • Do not make a fair housing mistake – a seemingly harmless comment can cost you thousands!
  • Think twice before you write something you will come to regret.
  • What lessons professional managers can bestow on smaller, “mom and pop” owners
  • And much more – your questions submitted prior to and during the webinar will drive the discussion

This informative webinar will also focus on questions submitted by you! After registering, you will have the opportunity to submit questions. Live Q&A will also be available during the webinar and we will do our best to consolidate and identify those questions that will benefit all attendees.
