Meet The Godfather of Property Management That You’ve Never Heard Of


Tall claim? Hear me out.

Let’s start here…

Meet Bob.

I won’t bore you with Bob’s +40 years in the industry or the three pm companies he’s grown to several thousand doors.

What I would like to draw your attention to is the fact that Bob Walters jump started the professionalization of property management in Australia and New Zealand by founding and growing LPMA (Leading Property Managers of Australia). LPMA is the Australian version of NARPM.

Bob has personally consulted for +300 property management companies, and trained more than 25,000 property management professionals in AU + NZ.

They say when the student is ready, the master will appear.

The PM Grow Summit is the perfect time to come as a student, and walk away on a path toward mastery.

Buy Bob a beer, tell him your troubles, and then start taking notes.
