#114: Manager’s Round Table Review with Karen Jordan, David Pruitt, and Brian Phelt

Mar 10, 2021 by Brad Larsen

Welcome to the Property Management Mastermind Show with your host, Brad Larsen. Today we are talking to three participants of the Manager's Round Table, and they will talk about some details of what they learned and how it worked for them and get a feel for what we can potentially improve on to make it a better system.

Manager's Round Table is a platform we created because we identified a need for a mastermind. Because it's a lot easier said than done, we created this platform where we have facilitators that organize the group and go through checklists of items they want to talk about in a group format twice a month. 

Listen as David shares his two key takeaways from the round table, including a resident benefits package and a discussion on an owner's manual. They challenged Karen to benchmark where her competitors are and an owner's zoom call she is implementing quarterly. Brian was excited about the SWOT analysis he went through with the group and ways to earn more revenue for his business.

David, Karen, and Brian discuss some other lessons learned during the round tables and discuss continuing the format from now on as Brian says, why wait until a conference to improve your business when you can go to a round table every two weeks and bring something back to implement.

**Announcement** The Property Management Mastermind Conference is May 19-21 at the Gaylord Resort in Grapevine, TX
