"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." Russell Sabadosa, East Longmeadow
On the value of events: "The cheapest way to learn is from someone else's mistakes." Jane Gasek, Worcester

“I absolutely enjoyed this course. There was a lot of information that was shared that will help me be a better landlord. Doug imparts his wisdom in a very concise, fast paced manner. He also allows and encourages class participation, which I found invaluable to hear what other landlords are experiencing both positive and negative. Doug is professional, polite, thoughtful, and most of all knowledgeable. I would highly recommend his course to anyone from beginner to experienced property owner.” – Crash Course Feedback #764 (submitted 4/26/17)
Normally I like to sleep-in on Saturdays and was worried that I could walk away from the workshop underwhelmed. Fortunately that was not the case at all. This was a productive Saturday for sure and I probably could have stayed for more.
