Today’s Flash Back Friday comes from Episode 951, originally published in February 2018.
It’s time for Jason Hartman to have a good, old fashioned discussion on property management. This time, however, there are THREE sides at the table.
In one corner is Jason’s mom, who is an EXTREME do-it-herself self-manager. In another corner is Drew, who has always been with a property management company and isn’t ready to step into the self-management world. And in the final corner is Jason, with his method of a hybrid model.
