Ireland's Pub 10 @ Loyola University
Lower Level of the Damen Student Center
N/C for RPBG members. $20 for guests who pre-register, $30 at the door.
 
Unlike most meetings which occur on the 4th Tuesday of the month, this month's meeting of the Rogers Park Builders Group will be on the 3rd Tuesday - April 17th, at the time and location stated above.
 
First, given our communities location midway between the Northwestern and Loyola campuses, how can we landlords and property managers be more adept at reaching the prospective renters - students, grad students, faculty and staff - coming from these esteemed universities? We will hear from Mark Taylor, a principal with Places4Students, a company that simplifies the process for students to search for off-campus housing.  The company currently partners with Loyola, Northwestern and will be shortly partnered with UIC.  Their website is available to undergrads, graduate students, faculty and staff.
  
Second, Jeremy Sorokas with Red Brick Analytics, will probe deeper into the subject of tenant screening and background checks. Jeremy drew big crowds when he discussed similar topics at our Best Practices Workshop a couple of weeks back. Jeremy advocates alternative approaches for conducting tenant screening, utilizing criteria measuring stability often not covered by traditional credit screening companies. 
 
How do we draw proper conclusions from credit reports? How do we weigh such factors as student debt and medical bills? How much weight do we place on bankruptcies, evictions or criminal background, especially if they occurred years ago?   
  
In addition, Jeremy has been working with our fellow Director Jay Johnson to survey our membership to establish the number of apartment units our collective membership owns and manages. (All organizations part of the NBOA are conducting similar studies, so that we can learn the full reach of our members.) With a $5.00 bill,  interested attendees can place a guess at the RPBG's total number of units under ownership and management - the winner will be offered the great opportunity to buy us all a post meeting cocktail from the student bartenders who will be tending bar during the evening festivities, and keep the difference!
 
The evening will filled with learning, networking and a bit of fun, as Irelands' Pub has a bar, pool, ping pong and a piano (in the event Jerry Lumpkins of Harris Bank wants to entertain us) - so don't plan on leaving early.   
 
See you on Tuesday, April 17th and feel free to register a guest or two! 
 
Sincerely;
Rogers Park Builders Group
