The Landlord 411 Story – From our beginning in 1969 to today.
In 1969 we began to put our own real estate deals together by both purchasing existing single-family-residences and also building groups of 5 to 10 single-family-residences, all for rental.
We quickly discovered that the key to successful real estate investments was management. On taking over the management ourselves, we quickly learned that we could out perform the alleged “professionals”.
As we began to sell the rental properties, some of the buyers asked us to continue to manage their newly acquired properties. In addition our own clients began to ask us to manage their other properties.
Our reputation as an effective management company began to make the rounds in our local real estate market. In 1972 we started to help other landlords with their properties that were experiencing problems. It did not take us long to turn these properties-with-problems around.
We were one of the first companies who adapted the computer to property management. Bu taking advantage of the computer technology, we were convinced that we could improve the overall performance of our rental properties. Biting the bullet and with no real computer experience, we hired our first full time programmer in 1973. Of course this dramatic step was taken only after an exhaustive investigations of the available current landlord, computer programs were analysed.
We realized that we would have to write our own programs from scratch. Our first computer was the size of a large refrigerator and cost over $40,000. (At the time, we were cash poor, so we traded one of our 4-plexes for the computer. It turned out to be a bargain for both parties.)
Over the next 30 years we continued to create programs, training guides, manuals, landlord management forms, tutorials, unique rentals programs and tools, and gained a incredible amount of knowledge and experience. We managed properties from one unit (single-family residences) to over 400 units. Not only did we manage our own properties, but managed properties for individual owners, banks, Savings and Loans, New York Stock Exchange companies, pension funds, state and federal agencies. The properties ranged in size from single-family residences to over 400 units and were located throughout the country. We had a staff of over 200 employees, managed over 5,000 units and, in addition.
We recognized that experience is one of the most expensive commodities in the business world. We learn by our mistakes. In real estate, most mistakes are very expensive.
To permit others to benefit by our experience, we began--in 1997--to pull our diverse mines of information and programs together. Such proven knowledge and expertise could allow others to take advantage of the vast experience we had acquired over the past 30 years. This took us about 2 years to accomplish this feat. Once completed, we launched our website in 1999.
