Training and Information for Property Managers
Do you currently have tenants in distress?

Are you looking for innovative avenues to source new and well-qualified tenants?

Foot In The Door is a free online information session for all Property Managers and Real Estate professionals who want to keep up-to-date on:

  • Not-for-profit in your area that can assist existing tenants that may be facing challenges
  • Connecting with sources of qualified new tenants
  • Tips to sustain positive tenancies during challenging times through
    understanding a trauma-informed approach to property management

Awareness and informed response to current social issues such as homelessness, domestic violence, and mental health has never been so important for the property industry than they are right now!
