"I have three buildings which were financed by Masslandlords members I met at events. They are all holding first position mortgages with great rates and a small down payment. The connections I have made over the years have literally been priceless."

  • Southbridge Virtual Meeting Mon Jan 4: MassLandlords.net Benefits
    7:00 PM-8:00 PM
    01/04/2021

    Our January meeting will cover MassLandlords.net Benefits.

    This presentation will be given by Doug Quattrochi, Executive Director of MassLandlords. 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 1,900 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.

  • Statewide Virtual Meeting Wed Jan 6: Fire Safety in Multifamilies
    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    01/06/2021

    Each year Massachusetts has approximately 15,000 structure
    fires
    . The leading causes are factors owners and managers can help
    eliminate: electrical, smoking, cooking, heating, and plumber’s
    torches. Owners and managers who take a proactive approach to fire
    safety are doing the right thing for their residents, as well as
    lowering their financial risk and ongoing insurance costs.

    This presentation will give an overview of how a residential fire can
    get started. We will review the particular challenges of multifamily
    residential dwellings. We will share practical things owners and
    managers can do to educate renters, upgrade our buildings, and
    prevent fires of all kinds.

    This presentation is not our detailed presentation on fire
    code. This presentation is about fire prevention, general building
    guidance, and renter communication. We will provide an overview of
    where detectors are likely to be required.

    We will also discuss
    Carbon Monoxide, an odorless and lethal gas that represents its
    greatest danger during winter heating season.

    lt maria pelchar
    Lt. Maria Pelchar, Holyoke Fire Department

    Part of this presentation will be given by Lt. Maria Pelchar, Fire
    Inspector at the Holyoke Fire Department. She is an experienced
    MassLandlords speaker.

  • Webinar Friday Jan 22: Massachusetts COVID Eviction Filings So Far
    12:00 PM
    01/22/2021

    This webinar will give an in-depth answer to the question, “What can you tell me about evictions during the pandemic?” The focus will be on Massachusetts eviction records, which are public. MassLandlords staff have been studying evictions since 2015. We now publish weekly eviction data reports.

    • What’s the difference between a court filing and a forced move-out?
    • Where are the official eviction data?
    • Why is MassLandlords producing weekly reports?
    • Are eviction filings more or less frequent than before the pandemic?
    • Are forced move-outs happening?
    • Why are renters being taken to court?
    • What kinds of households are being filed against?
    • What kinds of landlords are going to court?
    • What can we say about discrepancies in representation rates?
    • What is “housing crisis” normal?
    • What can we say about total and average arrears?
    • What has state and federal government done that is helping?
    • Is there more to do?

    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 over 2,000 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 term-limited 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.

    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    01/25/2021

    Learn how to be listed on MassLandlords.net as a Certified Massachusetts Landlord™. This new professional designation is available to
    current, new and prospective owners and managers
    of Massachusetts residential rental real estate.

    The program will start with an overview of why certification matters both in state politics and to your bottom line. Then we’ll review each of the
    three levels of certification,
    the first of which is available now. After this, we’ll put the slides away
    and do a live screenshare on the website. You will be taught step-by-step how to create your professional profile,
    review the Level One best practices, and sign the certification agreement. Finally, we’ll talk about how to use
    your new logo and status to advertise
    your business and differentiate yourself, especially if your local market makes it difficult to rent an apartment.
