"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."

On the value of events: "The cheapest way to learn is from someone else's mistakes."

    Worcester Wed 6/12: Albion Show-and-Tell, Bubble Panel

    5:30 PM-9:00 PM
    Worcester Technical High School
    1 Skyline Dr, Worcester, MA 01605, USA

    Part I: The Albion Restored

    We’re sending a photographer to meet Mike O’Rourke and create a PowerPoint show-and-tell. Mike restored an infamous downtown Worcester rooming house
    called “The Albion” from a state of neglect to a well-run, well respected, and greatly admired home for many. He has come up with some surprising and
    effective new approaches to management and buildings. From security to electric stoves, we’ll learn how it’s really done. There will be no “before” pictures, we’ll be
    focused on what works now.

    Mike has been written about at least twice in the Worcester Telegram and Gazette, is a MassLandlords State-wide Board Member Emeritus, and has contributed
    immeasurably to the cause of creating better rental housing in Massachusetts.

    Part II: Are We In a Bubble?

    We have finally corralled the speakers we need to have this discussion. With building prices what they are, who can make money on a new acquisition?
    No one can predict the future, but we can speculate and we can build defenses, in some ways. And we can prepare to buy, in other ways.
    Or we can ignore the naysayers and just keep buying. We’ll have a good discussion.

    This part of the presentation will be given by our Bubble Panel:

    Yes there is a bubble:

    Rich Merlino, MassLandlords emcee

    Carmine Zamarro, realtor, lender and builder with 40 years experience

    No, there is no bubble:

    Doug Quattrochi, MassLandlords Executive Director

    Nelson Zide, realtor with 40 years experience

    Our panelists will be arguing assigned or voluntary positions. Audience participation encouraged but not required.
