Feedback:

“You were fantastic.  Everyone really loved your presentation – I honestly think it’s one of the best we’ve ever had.  I truly appreciate your sense of humor, honesty and wit. Nice work!”

-Rental Housing Association Attendee

“WOW! Your presentation last night was OUTSTANDING! I have been to a lot of membership meetings over the years, but I can say unequivocally that yours was the BEST! Your presentation and the interaction between you and the attendees was unbelievable. I could go on and on, but it is probably best to just say thank you for sharing your time and expertise with the RHA members.”

“I like Chris Casey and I want to “have his baby”!  (Sorry, I have teenagers, Figure of speech).  Chris puts an emphasis on something that is so commonly overlooked in property management that I think it should be a crime.  I have worked in the Seattle market for nearly 25 years as a maintenance tech, then tech team coordinator, then Seattle area project manager doing condo conversions, then a general contractor, then a certified home inspector and now I run maintenance on 1000+ units for a BRE.  Through all my experiences, the one common factor that puts assets at risk is specific items of deferred maintenance which leads to water intrusion which ultimately leads to mold, law suits and litigation. PREVENTION=INSPECTIONS!  Chris made that very clear and that’s why I think he is a stand up guy.”

-Institute of Real Estate Management Attendee

“Thanks for an interesting and useful presentation. You did a great job presenting, although you said you were not a professional presenter.  I don’t rely on presentation style as a barometer; however I do look at the valuable information given.  I want you to know that your information was very valuable for people like me.”
