  5. Here is a quick chat RPM, Keenan Fitzpatrick and Jeff-Laura Davis did for us regarding how earthquake insurance works and what to do right after it happens.

    Raising Rental Property Equity

    Hey there! @ddsk1191 I have done the energy rating but it worked because at the time we lived in the unit. I'm not sure they allow that program anymore and for non-occupied unit. I've seen the best returns is things that make the place "clean". Meaning all door knobs and hinges are the same. Don't need a new kitchen but a counter tops and the trendy color painted works. I believe it all depends on the end goal as to how far you design it. Kass

    Raising Rental Property Equity

    Hey folks, I'm curious what renovations or improvements have generated the highest return on investment for you, and how you went about determining that on your rental property. Did you use energy star tests as a starting point? I'm considering installing some new high quality bathroom fans and an HRV system and wondering what the return might be like on that. Cheers, Dev
  8. I love Alaskans! Other companies were impressed with the teams service to the community they bought us lunch and other things to help us stay focused in continuing our efforts to help our customers. I shall return this favor because that's what Alaskans do! We help each other no matter what.

  9. My heart breaks hearing about damages...including this story with a customer. Please consider helping. Yes we are trying FEMA but it will be limiting.

  10. Friends and Family, this home is all over the news and a great loss to Landlord and Tenant. The tenant will have some help with insurance but the landlords will not. Below is the landlords story and request for help. The tenants story is posted with the news. This will help neighbors in not having to look at this home on their street, or maybe even rebuild. They are looking for help from the government, but no word or promises on this front either.

  11. Erik and I think we should just stay in the airplane as a way of getting a break from the aftershocks.

  12. This picture is missing about 5 people. However, the team worked Alaskan Hard to help other Alaskans. I'm forever in debt to my team because they honored our mission to help others.

  13. Earlier
  14. Sure, why not add a volcano to the mix. We are Alaskan strong.

  15. I'm thankful for first responders, great Alaskans helping each other, and another RPM office helping call every tenant by the end of the day.

  16. We finally got to see my house. All that matters is the airplane is safe. I can buy everything else we lost.

  17. We have been able to reach most of our tenants and owners. About 80 rentals with some varying degree of damage and about 20 with leaks. And 1 caved in home. We are still checking properties. (And we haven't seen our home because we wanted to help others first)

  18. I'm in a room listening to our team making a lot of calls checking on tenants and letting owners know the second we find out. We even have RPM's from out of state helping us locally!!

  19. We are fine. Employees are ok. RPM is up and running on the phones for our rentals. Please avoid calling me so we can help customers.

  20. I'm shocked how true this is daily

  21. Makes you say um.....

  22. Way to funny had to repost this for anyone in service business! I'm thinking of offering a super premium tier of property management services:

    We will call you for a meeting each time an application for your property is received, reviewed, or approved and explain to you in detail how each aspect of the application does or does not meet our rental criteria and what implications the fair housing laws might have on each aspect of the application.

    We will call you for approval before any maintenance is performed, and get three bids for any job over $25.

    You will accompany us on all property inspections and we will explain to you what is reasonable wear and tear and what is not. We will send an Uber to pick you up anywhere within 50 miles of the property and bring you to these inspections.

    For this level of service our monthly management fee will be 90% of rent collected and our leasing and lease renewal fee will be equivalent to 2 months rent.

    Am I missing anything?!

    I just need a dozen clients at this tier and I'll be set. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

  23. Robert Lincoln II you rock! We do trust you

  25. My thoughts for the last several days now. It is so odd that people assume and make comments when erik and I are so humble and giving. We keep to ourselves and enjoy our space and time. I'm not here to impress you or be in your drama. I just want to be the best me based on my values and help thousands of landlords. Those assumptions people make of us are typically wrong anyways so it really doesn't bug me because those words and thoughts are just nieve.

  26. Mountains in the clouds and dirt. I love Alaska

  27. Im going brave and sharing my paint look. I swear every landlord has a painting shirt! What pic do you have to share?

  28. For those that attended the class last night - you learned how vital documentation, screening, and inspections are. Even Patrick Dailey with our company said this in his interview.
