Have it and they will come....

Full House at the free seminar for rental property owners.

 We had 46 people in attendance. Many more called but had to be turned away. We are planning to have another in the near future.
Thank you Detective Chaz  Balogh.  As always .. Your presentation was enjoyable and extremely informative.
Thank you to District Attorney Jackie Carroll, Councilmen Mike Merritt and Bill Barrett for attending our Seminar.

It is a lot easier to do criminal background checks on potential tenants and get the right people in your rental than it is to try and get the bad ones out!


This is the handout that was given out to the participants at the seminar.
It is a list of web sites useful to look up criminal history …

  1. To our regret, many of those who wanted to attend had to be put on a list for the next offering. The building had less capacity than we had interested citizens!
    We wish to publicly thank Councilmen Bill Barrett, and Mike Merritt for always being there, and always being supportive.
