  • Statewide Virtual Meeting Wed Apr 6: Top Ten Tips for New Massachusetts Real Estate Investors
    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    04/06/2022

    This presentation will review our top ten ways to succeed as a real estate investor in Massachusetts. This will not be in-depth rental training. Rather we will look at strategy and answer the big questions:

    • Rent, “condotize” or flip?
    • Vacant or occupied?
    • How to shop in a seller’s market?
    • Side hustles and alternate paths.
    • And more!

    We will also alert you to major pitfalls that are possible when taking over occupied property.

    Attendees will leave knowing more about the Massachusetts real estate investing landscape.

    This presentation will be given by Doug Quattrochi, Executive
    Director, MassLandlords, Inc. Doug was a founding member of MassLandlords in 2013. He became the association’s first Executive Director under new bylaws in 2014. Since then, he has scaled the organization from a core of 160 members in Worcester to approximately 2,500 dues paying businesses from Pittsfield to the Cape, and from an all-volunteer team to approximately 20 full and part-time staff plus 50 volunteers. Doug has been instrumental in advancing democratic governance mechanisms, including score voting for policy priorities and a staggered and democratically elected Board of Directors. Doug also oversees the RentHelper spin-off, which is expanding access to electronic banking for those of us who are unbanked or underbanked. Prior to MassLandlords, Doug held leadership roles in various Massachusetts startups, two of which are still operating. Doug holds a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

    “Doug’s presentation was excellent. He was very clear and provided a detailed explanations.” -Larry

    “Doug always holds very informative classes full of substance and Very organized!” -Thomas

    “Thanks to you Doug, and all who worked on this presentation, as it is obvious that a lot went into it, as you said. It was much to digest, but your presentation of the information, and especially your opinions throughout, aided the translation. Also, your answers to member’s questions afterward, regarding recommendations, were most helpful. Always a pleasure.” -Liz

  • Statewide Virtual Meeting Tue Apr 19: Pet Addendum, Animal Wellbeing and Urban Beekeeping
    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    04/19/2022

    Let’s open up the MassLandlords pet addendum and take a tour of the clauses that protect landlords, renters, and animals alike! This presentation will be a wide-ranging education on rarely discussed aspects of animal caretaking, including reptiles and urban beekeeping. We will learn:

    • How landlords are sometimes the only thing between misery and the wellbeing of a pet.
    • How the MassLandlords pet addendum protects landlords, renters and animals.
    • Considerations for landlords if a renter requests to keep bees!
    • Considerations and guidelines for small animal enclosures.
    • Household products that may be bad for certain animals.
    • And much more!

    Attendees will leave with newfound expertise in a wide range of pet and animal topics.

  • Webinar Apr 22: Zero Emissions Retrofit Opportunities and Roadblocks
    12:00 PM-1:00 PM
    04/22/2022

    This presentation will review the state of the art in multifamily retrofits. The goal is to eliminate emissions, thereby eliminating climate policy risk. What if natural gas became 10 times more expensive? What if gas stoves no longer complied with the state sanitary code? Better to address these issues preemptively. We will share our best knowledge of:

    • Insulation and air sealing.
    • Windows and doors.
    • Heat pump water heaters.
    • Minisplit pros and cons (air source heat pumps).
    • Ground source heat pumps.
    • The difficulty with ducts.
    • The difficulty with drop-in boiler replacement, and
    • The magnetic appeal of induction cooking.

    Attendees will leave knowing why retrofits are harder than new construction, but also what to do about it.

    MassLandlords Executive Director Doug Quattrochi

    This presentation will be given by Doug Quattrochi, Executive
    Director, MassLandlords, Inc. Doug was a founding member of MassLandlords in 2013. He became the association’s first Executive Director under new bylaws in 2014. Since then, he has scaled the organization from a core of 160 members in Worcester to approximately 2,500 dues paying businesses from Pittsfield to the Cape, and from an all-volunteer team to approximately 20 full and part-time staff plus 50 volunteers. Doug has been instrumental in advancing democratic governance mechanisms, including score voting for policy priorities and a staggered and democratically elected Board of Directors. Doug also oversees the RentHelper spin-off, which is expanding access to electronic banking for those of us who are unbanked or underbanked. Prior to MassLandlords, Doug held leadership roles in various Massachusetts startups, two of which are still operating. Doug holds a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

    “Doug’s presentation was excellent. He was very clear and provided a detailed explanations.” -Larry

    “Doug always holds very informative classes full of substance and Very organized!” -Thomas

    “Thanks to you Doug, and all who worked on this presentation, as it is obvious that a lot went into it, as you said. It was much to digest, but your presentation of the information, and especially your opinions throughout, aided the translation. Also, your answers to member’s questions afterward, regarding recommendations, were most helpful. Always a pleasure.” -Liz

  • Statewide Virtual Meeting Mon Apr 25: Discrimination: Protected Classes, How to Offer Equal Housing Opportunity
    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    04/25/2022

    This presentation will give a comprehensive overview of federal and state protected classes. We’re fortunate to live in a country and a state where we cannot be denied housing
    because of our belonging to a protected class. But as rental housing operators, we do have to deny applications. We will review:

    • The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and 1968 as Amended,
    • Massachusetts General Law Chapter 151B,
    • The full list of federal and state protected classes,
    • Prohibited steering,
    • Enforcement actions,
    • And more!

    Attendees will leave confident in our ability to offer equal housing opportunity while still screening for success in rental housing.


    Attorney Jordana Roubicek Greenman
    Attorney Jordana Greenman
    A diverse group of happy people are smiling with their arms raised so as to look cheery. An old woman in a wheelchair is wearing a dress. A white woman is standing next to a black man. A young boy is next to the man, perhaps the child of the standing woman and the man. All are very happy.
    Equal housing opportunity is fun, rewarding and easy once you know how.

    Part of this presentation will be given by Attorney Jordana Roubicek Greenman, a real estate lawyer and recipient of the Super Lawyers Rising Star award 2012-2020.
    Attorney Greenman has a solo practice with a main office in Watertown and additional office in
    Downtown Boston. Her practice consists of a broad range of real estate-related legal matters,
    including commercial and residential landlord/tenant disputes, condominium association representation,
    general real estate litigation and commercial and residential real estate closings. Attorney Greenman
    has a well-respected reputation for aggressively advocating for her clients’ goals and ensuring beneficial
    outcomes at a reasonable cost. She was among the first attorneys to take legal action in response to the unfunded eviction moratorium and has been working as co-counsel on a pro bono basis with the recent Boston Eviction Moratorium.
