    Great interview. I watched it all! (I’m wondering if this is the longest interview). Chris, sounds like you have developed a profitable model based on great experience. Our company has the same philosophy on property management. We started out managing our own properties and moved into select few 3rd properties. We treat those clients as partners and their properites as our own. Thanks for sharing.
