Dear David,steve-dye-792659
I attended your class in Las Vegas in October of this year. I just wanted to tell you what a great seminar it was. Just to refresh your memory I am the guy that had the four plex in the ghetto of Sacramento. I saw you a week later at Peter Fortunato’s seminar in Tampa.Anyway, as soon as I arrived home I contacted Jan Leisure and got your California specific rental agreement. I then called my current tenant who had given his 30 day notice. I offered him $100 to show the property and I offered him $250 if we got the property rented before he moved. I started running ads on craigslist and my phone began ringing off the hook. I would do a brief prequalification over the phone and then give them my current tenants phone number and he showed the property. Within two weeks I had several applications. I then went out and bought the Dragon software and created a mini script with bullet points based off of your lease of script that I purchased at your Seminar. I then joined a to run credit checks. On one of the applications, the couple had been there for 14 years only leaving because the house was foreclosed on.

After my current tenant showed the property I went and met the new tenant at a local McDonald’s and did my very first lease up. By the time I was done the new tenant, who is a painter, not only loved the concept of your lease, but asked if he could paint the inside of the property. I told him that was fine as long as he agreed to repaint it back to the original colors when he moved out. He then informed me he would repaint and caulk the property the same colors that it is now and he would pay for everything. During the lease up he agreed to change all locks however, I told him I would do it because I wanted to replace the locks with the new Quickset Smart Locks. I went over there today to square up with the old tenant and do a walk-through. I gave the tenant back his deposit minus some repairs( which the new tenant agreed to do for free) and paid him the extra money that I had promised for showing the property. I started changing the locks and the new tenant showed up.

By the time I was done the property had been vacant less than one hour!

The new tenant(who had already paid the first months rent plus the rent lock) then paid me for the following month’s rent as well. Needless to say, I also fired my current property manager. This is the first time I’ve attempted any type of property management and thanks to your help, I have zero downtime, zero advertising costs and zero vacancies. I can’t tell you how excited and relieved I feel after taking your course, using your script and leasing up my first tenant. Now that I think about it, the new tenant even wanted to bring in his own appliances. So I moved ours out. The new tenant is 100% on board and loves our program. But to be honest, I’m the one doing back flips! So, in closing I just wanted to say thank you and I appreciate everything you have done for me. I am looking forward to a bright future in property management which is the last thing I thought I would ever want to do.

Thanks again, Steve Dye
