Are you frustrated with your current property management software? Welcome to the Property Management Mastermind Show with your host, Brad Larsen. Today's guest is Mike Mengden with Terra Residential Services, a property management company. Listen as they discuss Rentvine, the new software coming out that everyone has been waiting several years for, and how Mike successfully integrated this software into his business, and much more.
Mike discusses why he changed to the Rentvine software and the three founders of the Rentvine product and how trusted they are in the industry. Mike describes the implementation of the new software, how much Rentvine helped with the process, and how great it was to have a company that didn't just sell a product but was willing to help you through the entire transition.
Mike also speaks about Rentvine's accounting program for tenants, owners and managers, and how they have integrated the NARPM Accounting Standards into the software for easy use. Listen, as Mike shares some questions that he believes you should ask Rentvine if you consider using their product.
Mike and Brad discuss Rentvine's automated systems and the type of properties that would work the best with this software. Rentvine has evolved over the years from their first trial to now and is open to suggestions for changes or additions they could add to make the software better.
