Today’s show is sponsored by LeadSimple and Fourandahalf. Together, they’ve come up with one of the best conferences for property managers, called the PM Grow Summit. This event is laser-focused on growth strategies and brings together some remarkable thought leaders from around the country. I attended last year and was thoroughly impressed all around -- and that was just their first year! The next conference will be in San Diego in 2018, and I’ve already booked my spot.

Today, I have the honor of being joined by the remarkable and knowledgeable Tom Sedlack. Tom is a longstanding NARPM member and instructor teaching cash flow analysis. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to take his class, and found it incredibly valuable. If you want to experience his knowledge firsthand too, don’t miss out on his upcoming speech in Orlando at the NARPM National Convention!
In this episode, we’ll mostly talk about a separate business model that you may want to consider for your management company: HOA management. As Tom explains, he and his wife manage 20 HOA associations with a total of over 1,000 HOA doors. These are spread across two areas: the Twin Cities and Kansas City. (And yes, Tom will also touch on how he handles running a company in two locations.)
Throughout our conversation, we explore the details of HOA management. We’ll talk, for example, about how it’s different from standard property management, how Tom got started in working with HOAs, and what the process is for winning HOA clients. Tom also offers fantastic insight into the details of running this part of his company with recommendations about software, checklists, and much more.
