In this episode, the remarkable Deb Newell will talk about consulting, growth, and how it all ties in together within the property management industry. Deb and I have known each other for quite a while through the NARPM community, and I'm very impressed with what she's doing, so I'm excited to have her on the show. I hope you'll enjoy what she has to say about growth as much as I did!

Deb has been running a property management company since 2001. She wanted to get out of debt, so she partnered with a friend to buy a property. She renovated the property, flipped it, paid back her friend, then bought a duplex and has been growing ever since. Deb hired her first employee when she reached 50 doors, and now has around 750 doors. Around a decade ago, she started a separate maintenance company.
Because she believes in running a lean company, she has fewer employees than most people would expect. For example, in Minnesota where she has around 450 doors, she has just five employees. In addition to describing her own property management company, Deb goes into fantastic depth in this episode about her role as a consultant for other companies. If you’ve ever wanted to learn what a consultant does, and what value a good one can offer to your company, this is definitely the episode for you.
She’ll also talk about the difference between consultants and coaches, how much she charges for her services, what she does when she works with a new company, what her stance is on the question of departmental style or portfolio style, and much more. Tune in to learn all about these topics and much more!
