Testimonials

Dena Daniels, who manages a large apartment complex in Raleigh, says the class is worthwhile for every property manager. "If you are anyone from a newbie to an experienced person, this one-day class is a good investment for your dollars," she says.

Janet Howard, who owns several duplexes in southeast Raleigh, is among those who have benefited from the class. "It was more engaging than I had anticipated," she says. "It's informative, and I like the fact that it highlights the important parts" of managing property.

Debra Hyson, rental housing owner and manager, says the class increased her awareness. "I would strongly recommend any landlord or property owner who has never taken it to take the landlord training at least once, even it is just for the information that is given out," Hyson says.
