EP253 Shifting Your Property Manager Mindset to Reduce Stress and Earn More Money with Gary Spencer-Smith
One of the reasons people are reluctant to start investing in real estate is that they don’t want to deal with tenants, toilets & trash. And anyone who manages residential real estate will tell you that it can be very stressful and time consuming.

He also just completed his new book called “The Property Manager Mindset: Reduce Stress, Save Time, Earn More Money” and he’s the co-owner of RevNYou, a growing real estate education platform.
Today Gary is going to share Property Manager Mindset Shifts that will help you become immune to emotional manipulation, think like a tenant to reduce stress, and solve the 3 most common tenant problems managers encounter. We’ll also discuss the ad copy that attracts your ideal renters, Gary’s 4-level system for ranking tenants and property to ensure rents get paid, worst-cast analysis to prepare you for anything, and Gary’s systems and checklists that build confidence for tenant walk throughs, move outs, and repair requests.

EP252 What Happened after 2 A.M. in this Haunted House? with Reverend Gerald Hunter
Spend the Night with me in a Haunted House!
Welcome to Part 2 of our Halloween Series on Haunted Houses, Apparitions, Paranormal Experiences, and the Roommates who don’t pay rent & can’t be evicted.
In part one (episode #251) you were introduced to a retired reverend who has been experiencing paranormal activity and communicating with the dead since his near-death experience at the age of 5. You also met several of his paranormal research assistants and heard their stories as well.
Today, we’re going to take you on a ghost hunting adventure to a haunted house in the historic district of Bay City Michigan. You'll find out the strange reasons we were brought there in the first place, how the homeowner was almost pushed off a ladder by a ghost, and what happened that night after 2 A.M. that is so strange, and so hard to explain, that I can't wait to share it with you.
If you're experiencing paranormal activity in your home, rental property, or place of business, you can contact Reverend Hunter through his publisher at https://thunderbaypressmichigan.com
EP251 Haunted Houses, Paranormal Activity, and the Roommates Who Don't Pay Rent and Can't Be Evicted with Reverend Gerald Hunter
Welcome to our Special Halloween Edition with all new stories about Haunted Houses, Apparitions, Paranormal Experiences, and the Roommates Who Don't Pay Rent, and Can't Be Evicted. We did something similar 3 years ago on EP#94 and it was one of my favorite all-time episodes. Today we go even deeper into paranormal phenomenon and I know you're going to love this incredibly thrilling episode!
I recorded so many great stories that I had to break them up into two episodes: In Part One you'll meet a group of Paranormal Researchers and the Retired Reverend who has brought them together. In Part 2 you'll get to accompany me to a Real-Life Haunted House in Bay City Michigan.
I want to warn you that some of these stories will frighten you, and some may even terrify you. If you're easily scared or prone to nightmares, then this is not the episode for you. Aside from the sound effects I've added in, everything you're about to hear is the actual professed experiences of the people involved. These are real people, with real stories of paranormal events that can't be explained, and are even harder to understand.
If you own a home, rental property, or business that is haunted or experiencing paranormal activity, then Reverend Hunter would like to hear from you. You can contact him through his publisher at Thunder Bay Press:

Best real estate investment podcast
This podcast sticks to the subject. I enjoy the interviews with small to large investors. As a small investor myself, I learn something new every episode. I think the hosts’ voice is agreeable and the sound quality is excellent. Some other real estate podcasts diverge into self improvement or off topic subjects. I like the guest selection on this podcast the best. Great interviewing. The host somehow knows just the right questions to ask. Would love to hear more “mom and pop” guests and their stories of struggles and successes. Thanks RPOA! Great show.
