Presenter: Kathy Harmon, CPM®, ARM®

You’ve done it. Congratulations! You have reached the fifth and final session of this series and launched your own property management company. Now it’s time to do a thorough examination of what you’ve done, what you need to tweak and where you want this wonderful new company to go. Determining what you did well (and not as well) is helpful as is checking your own satisfaction level.  Ask yourself not just how well you did but how much you like the finished product.  The post launch will go on as long as the company exists.  Always keep in mind how your past will constantly shape your future as a company.

Learning Objectives:

  • Debrief – What went well and what didn’t
  • What needs to be handled immediately and what needs to be thoughtfully dealt with going forward
  • Business growth – planning 
  • Consider adding auxiliary business types of business
  • Becoming the company that everyone yearns to work for
  • Take a BOW!
