LANDLORD OF THE YEAR CERTIFICATE
“Landlords have gotten a bad reputation because of a few bad apples. What has long been neglected and sorely missed in our communities is the understanding, training and support for our countries real estate entrepreneurs who provide the vital, quality housing to our fellow Americans.
It’s the landlords who are experts in this area. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest and because you’re interested you owe it to yourself to become a member and become the best version of you. There’s never a shortage of ideas and inspiration when trade secrets are dispensed freely. And it’s our willingness to give that has helped us gain so much. Scott FladHammer, Fort Wayne REIA president
Scott gives a compelling reason why the Landlording profession is unrecognized and how he and REIA are fighting to honor those who provide the bedrock of the American way of life in his Real Estate State of the Market
