Property management is an ever-changing field, so it’s imperative to stay informed and pivot along with the industry. To help keep you in-the-know, Rent Manager created Beyond Rent, a bi-weekly podcast full of the latest best practices, trends, and technology affecting property management today.
The podcast is hosted by Rent Manager’s own Joe Easton, a technology aficionado, seasoned networker, and seeker of conversations that go beyond the surface. Joe is joined by a new guest for each episode, and they dive into the latest industry news and trends. New episodes drop every other Sunday.
Beyond Rent has officially been making waves on air for one year! To celebrate its first birthday, we’re revisiting five of the show’s most thought-provoking episodes.

Navigating New Resident Screening Legislation
Keeping up with the shifting regulations and legislation of the property management industry can be overwhelming and time-consuming. Luckily, you don’t have to go-it alone; there are great organizations and individuals ready to help guide us on the path to knowledge and compliance. Scott Abernathy of Property Management, Inc., and the President of NARPM in 2020, shared his knowledge on how to stay informed, and what to watch for as we head into a new age of property management.
Strengthen Your Brand Through Your Leasing Process
A company’s brand is often determined by the way its employees handle communications. The initial interactions between your operation and its prospects during the leasing process is vital to your residents’ experiences and the perception of your property. To gain insight on how to create a stronger brand, Mike Sullivant of SBD Housing joined the podcast to discuss the role technology and content creation play in driving the leasing process.
Increasing Your Lease Renewal Rates
There are many important facets to the lifecycle of a resident, but few are as essential as the lease renewal stage. Deciding to move is costly for residents as well as the property owner, so it’s crucial to create a process that helps keep tenants satisfied and renting from your business. This can be especially challenging when there’s an increase in rent prices. John Rapisarda of Roofstock had a conversation with Joe about his experience creating a successful lease renewal process. He shared what works and what doesn’t.
Chris Griesinger, Director of Customer Experience at LCS—Rent Manager’s parent company—discussed the challenges and solutions for property management communications. Chris and his teams work with our customers to improve their operations and greatly streamline their communication efforts, in addition to showing them how to handle mass communication through Rent Manager.
