The Changing Rental Scene: An In-Depth Interview with Charles O’Neill

In February we learned invaluable lessons from one of our most interesting and successful members. On February 1st, Executive Director Doug Quattrochi did a live interview with Charles O’Neill, experienced landlord, real estate broker and MassLandlords member. Charles has a wealth of knowledge built up after working in many areas of real estate. He started out as landlord and gained experience in restoration and tenant screening. Now Charles is a real estate broker and an exclusive agent for landlords who have hundreds of units; he makes sales from Newton to Billerica and filling vacancies is part of his day to day. Attendees joined us for a unique opportunity to learn directly from a highly knowledgeable and successful member of our organization.

MassLandlords Member Interview

The evening started with networking over snacks. Then we moved on to a short presentation from Jennifer Patton on the 50 people lotterying into the Waltham Rental Voucher program soon; this is a follow up from our November event. Finally we shifted our focus to our member interview; we did the interview in sections and paused between each to take questions.

“Charlie is an extraordinary wealth of knowledge and I’m immensely looking forward to our conversation on high finance, tenant screening, renovation, and policy.”– Doug Quattrochi, MassLandlords Executive Director
