About this blog


Welcome to my blog! Here is some information for deciding if this site will be useful to you.

My goal is to create a community of leaders in the property management industry who want to apply data science concepts for running their companies.




Purpose of This Blog:

Many of my current and prospective clients ask me questions about my work. They have questions about dashboards, custom reports, data analysis, big data, as well as databases, APIs and the technologies that their property management systems are built on. If the people who know me have such questions,  then there must be many other people who don’t know me and also have the same questions. The purpose of this blog is to record the ideas and recommendations I share with my clients, and to share them with a much wider audience.


No Pitching:

I wanted to create a site where my readers are not being pitched services or products. I will strive to be objective about the technologies and methods that can be used to apply data science to property management. The information here will be free.

If you join my email list, you will see that my emails are non-promotional in nature. I’ll be sharing ideas I come across through conversations with people who are running property management companies.


Our Audience:

People who will get real use from this blog will have some of these characteristics:

  • Probably a member of NARPM and/or the National Apartment Association.
  • Leading a property management business.
  • Currently managing (or aspiring to manage) a portfolio of 2,000 to 5,000 units.
  • Already sold on the value of metrics, key performance indicators and analytics (or is curious about these).
  • Looking for technology ideas to create a lean, efficient and high-performing organization.


Privacy, Membership:

Some of the content on this site is gated. That means it is available to download free if you register.

Registration is free, of course. We use a WordPress plug in to manage the login process, and we enable signing in with your Google, Twitter or Facebook account. I thought that would be better than requiring our repeat visitors to create a separate user id just for this site.
