Council of Community Services This week at REI of Virginia

Hello Everyone,

This week our guest speakers will be Dan Merenda & Mat Crookshank from the Council of Community Services.

Dan & Matt will be talking with our group about the services they provide. I have had many interactions with them over the years as one of their specialties is homelessness prevention. They have stepped in on several occasions with my residents and given them a helping hand catching them up on rent so they could get a clean restart when times get tough. 

They also put together various planning and programs specializing in other areas other than homelessness such as community engagement, information and referral and HIV/AIDS. 

Come on out this week to learn more about their services and how they can potentially benefit you and or your residents.

See you there!

Eliminating Bad Potential Tenants This Week at REI

Hello Everyone,

Do you do background checks on your tenants? Though the free courts website only? Do you need to also do one through a paid company? Are you taking a risk that they are a professional evictee from another state?Or that they are a violent criminal and that violence will be turned towards you when you make them mad as a result of evicting them due to non payment?

We have an important meeting this week about doing background checks. And our guest speaker will be property manager Jason Roggensee, owner of The Grandin Agency. 

Be there or be square!

The Virginia Eviction Process This Week At REI

Hello Everyone,

This week we’re going to have a presentation on the Virginia eviction process. I can’t think of any part of this business that I dislike more than filing for eviction on non paying tenants that refuse to get out when you have already terminated the lease…..But it has to be done. And it has to be done in a timely manor. 

Those of us that have done hundreds of evictions over the years have all learned some hard lessons. The purpose of this meeting is to prevent you from having to be taught these same lessons. 

Regarding filling out the paperwork, if it’s not filled out correctly you could be leaving money on the table and even worse you could have the whole eviction overturned. There is also a process, that when used, you can get paid on at least half of all of the evictions you have to file. Without garnishments. 

Come on out this week to pick up some tips that will save you time and money when dealing with bad or non paying tenants. 

See you there!

BTW, check out the video in the link below. Lead Safe Roanoke has more funding now. Which means you can get new windows and doors on your properties that qualify. Marla makes things real easy so this is not a program with a lot of hoops to jump through. Just a few. I have used it several times already and once this year.
