CW 951 - Jason's Hybrid Property Management Strategy with Mom & Drew Baker, a Client Case Study, Part 1
It's time for Jason Hartman to have a good, old fashioned discussion on property management. This time, however, there are THREE sides at the table.
In one corner is Jason's mom, Joyce, who is an EXTREME do-it-herself self-manager. In another corner is Drew, who has always been with a property management company and isn't ready to step into the self-management world. And in the final corner is Jason, with his method of a hybrid model.
Listen in as these three discuss concerns, strategies, and tips for property management, no matter which road you decide to go down.
