“Rent Sense” is an informative article for Rental Owners or those looking to become investment property owners. This weekly insight is brought to you courtesy of Neil Fjellestad and Chris De Marco, President and Vice President of FBS Property Management in San Diego, CA. The goal of “Rent Sense” is to educate existing and perspective property investors on the Property Management field, the ever changing Real Estate regulations as well as the technology advances being made by our company and other industry leaders. We  have been in business for over 40 years, cover 65 zip codes, over 700 single family homes and over 1,200 clients thus providing us with a variety of topics to discuss. Neil, Chris and the rest of the FBS team is available at 619-286-7600 or www.fbs-pm.com.

We would like to welcome our business partner Carol Levey who is a recognized national educator in the multihousing industry to share some of her professional management insights. She provides temporary leasing specialists to major apartment community operators, tailored training coursework to onsite personnel and consulting services to property management professionals across the country. She is one of the original team that produced the National Apartment Association course leading to the respected NALP designation. She produced “Let’s Lease” – the first industry CBT (computer-based training). She writes for the Apartment Association of Metro Denver as Ms. Management. She will appear as a guest blogger on Rent Sense.

We have also asked Ted Kimball to regularly share some of his legal insights on important issues that arise in the ongoing operation of rental properties (single homes, individual condos and apartments). These responses should not be construed as legal advice until your specific circumstances are considered. Our Property Management firm has effectively utilized the legal counsel of KTS for years to keep ourselves and our rental owner clients out of trouble. We operate rental properties in 65 zip codes throughout the region.

We have asked FBS Vice President, Lucinda Garland, to present a series of articles “Best Practices for Independent Rental Owners” that will be available in various publications from time to time and a feature here at Rent Sense. Lucinda is a Certified Property Manager (CPM) and a Graduate of the Realtor Institute (GRI). Her 25-year distinguished property management career has been refined with earning these internationally recognized professional designations. Ms. Garland is an industry leader currently serving as a board member for the local chapters of two of the most influential national trade organizations within the real estate industry; the National Apartment Association and the Institute of Real Estate Management. She is an expert on “best practices” and therefore an indispensable resource to our independent real estate investors.
