As a landlord or property manager, do you ever feel like the word “landlord” comes with a negative connotation? The word has been in use for over 1000 years, dating back to an Old English concept, in which tracts of land were owned by a single person who came to be known as a "lord," and those occupying the land became bound and dependent on their lords for protection and, of course, obligated to pay rent for that privilege. Even though our culture has moved well beyond this ancient system, the lingering negative essence of the word "landlord" remains for many. Hear from host Bob Preston, MPM® RMP®, and NARPM Property Managers, Mark Scott and Danielle Rogers, MPM® RMP®, on how we can start changing the narrative.
