Get relentless about questioning the status quo!

In this episode of ApartmentHacker, I discuss cutting off both ends of the ham.

Or, better said – just because you’ve always done it one way doesn’t mean you can’t do it another way!

Get relentless about questioning the status quo!

Episode 4 | Apartment Hacker | Servant Leadership

I believe leaders are made with the right amount of love, care and respect.

In Episode 4 I give you my thoughts related to Servant Leadership.

Leadership is something I’ve held front and center in my career.

I believe leaders are made with the right amount of love, care and respect.

There is no SOP for leadership but there are principles to live by and I think it all starts with a servant’s mind.

Episode 2 | ApartmentHacker | One Per Hundred

Responding to some thoughts on the topic of – one per hundred. If you’ve been in the business for any length of time; you’ve likely heard the phrase: one-per-hundred. It refers to a ratio of one employee per 100 units owned/served and serves as a basis for writing proformas across the country.

I lay down my thoughts in the video below. I refer to some now very dated content but the concept remains the same.

Your excited about the one per hundred ratio finally making some level of sense as it relates to extraordinary customer service Apartment Hacker,


Episode 1 | ApartmentHacker | One Take

I am taking the ApartmentHacker site down a new path starting today.

A New Path

This new path started with a name change (hopefully the last) from M Brewer Group to ApartmentHacker and will end with new and freshly packaged content. And, we are finally getting a logo. Not that I care so much about the logo but it will be a nice touch and hopefully help in the area of identity and recognition. All good change in my opinion but I am most excited about something I’ve not mentioned – video.

Producing Video

I’ve spent the past two months of nights and weekends producing 60 plus/minus short form videos for my Facebook page. And now that I have a library of content I am going to start sharing it here. For some of you; this is old news. For those who don’t follow me on FB; I hope you like what you see.

It’s a Process

I will admit; the first 25 plus/minus videos capture an absolute amateur trying to find his feet. While that is still the case today; I can tell it’s getting better. And my aim over time is to really refine the messages, the length and the overall production.

As you will hear in the first video; I took a page out of Gary Vanyerchuk’s and Dr. James Rouse’s playbook. In the early days Gary went with one-take vids. No edits. The same is still true for Dr. James with his daily offerings on FB.

Enjoy the Ride

I jumped in with no real expectation except to get started and get better over time.

With that, I hope you enjoy the new look when it goes live and I hope you enjoy the video content.
