At Rent Manager, we’re constantly seeking solutions and developing new ways to connect and engage within the property management industry. Recently, we launched Beyond Rent, a podcast that explores every facet of this complex and advancing sector. Hosted by Rent Manager’s own Joe Easton, each episode features a new guest and explores property management technology, stories from seasoned owners, and innovative ways to automate and integrate technology into your operation. New episodes are released every other Sunday. Binge the current lineup, and subscribe to Beyond Rent to catch future episodes.
Featuring: Chris Griesinger, Rent Manager’s Director of Implementation & Training
In the first episode of Beyond Rent, Joe sits down with Rent Manager’s Chris Griesinger. He and his teams work tirelessly to create expert training materials and ensure all customers and employees are well-acclimated to the software. Chris and Joe discuss the challenges and solutions for property management communications. With proven, integrated technology, property managers are able to bridge the communication gap and guarantee that tenant, prospect, and vendor communications are well received, while simultaneously getting the message out quickly.
Feed Your Community & Engage Your Residents
Featuring: Adam Lowy, Founder of Move for Hunger
Adam Lowy grew up assisting his dad and uncle with their New Jersey-based moving company, and he always felt bothered and unsettled by the amount of food left behind during the moving process. In 2009, he seized the opportunity to make a difference and began asking customers if they had any food they’d like to donate to the local foodbank. In a few short years, Adam expanded this charitable giving into an organization called Move for Hunger. In this episode, Adam shares his combined passions for the relocation industry and reducing waste, as well as some insight into how property managers can engage with their residents in a meaningful way that goes Beyond Rent.
Curating Resident Benefit Packages
Featuring: Andrew Smallwood, Second Nature’s Director of Sales
Making your communities stand out to potential residents is the goal of every property management company. Historically, marketing your properties’ amenities served as the top attention-grabber for prospects. As the industry has evolved, additional opportunities to enhance the leasing experience have manifested in the form of resident benefit packages. We’re joined by Andrew Smallwood from Second Nature—an experienced resident-benefit-package curator—to discuss how the inclusion of services, like those offered by Second Nature, can help set your company apart.
API Driven Workflows
Featuring: Joe Schultz, CEO of AllSet Property Management.
As a property manager, it’s crucial to constantly evolve your strategy, keep up with trends, and step outside of your comfort zone to stay relevant in this extremely competitive industry. You should expect your software to do the same in return. An adaptable API platform provides a true sense of freedom, as well as countless opportunities to integrate with some incredible tech that can automate nearly every facet of your operation. We are joined by Joe Schultz of AllSet Property Management—a self-made Milwaukee real estate juggernaut. Schultz and his team have been able to expand the horizons of their software through a number of Rent Manager maintenance, management, and accounting integrations.
