He will be at your service non-stop as he hosts, teaches and serves as moderator throughout 3 days. If you have not heard Jeffrey, click to see comments of those who have.  During the convention, he will also lead and facilitate landlording and brainstorming sessions which is where interactive learning takes place as attendees share proven ideas from their wealth of experiences. This is one of the biggest benefits of these conventions, the opportunity to brainstorm with other landlords and property managers. Attendees and successful rental owners from across the country share management insights and key management strategies during the special brainstorming sessions that are invaluable.



Most People Fail With Rentals Because They Can’t Get Them Managed Properly. At our upcoming Convention, Greg Slaughter will teach about how to CREATE perfect tenants. This will help you eliminate headaches and maximize profits.

He will share with you how to start take back control of your rentals! Greg was a tired landlord beyond frustrated, and just about to give up! He had gone through a couple of property management companies in less than a year. He then started managing his rentals himself and did what the industry and others had taught him to do. However, it wasn’t fun. He dreaded every time the phone rang and what he was going to have to deal with. It was taking away from his family and his spirits. He was ready to quit and just sell them all!

But he decided he wasn’t going to allow tenants to take away his and his family’s financial freedom. He had gotten rental properties so he could have the profits and freedom to enjoy life and he was not going to have bad tenants take that away from him.

“It wasn’t right and it wasn’t fair and I decided I had to find a better way then what I was taught and saw by other landlords and the industry. I was determined, went to work, and found that better way!

“The first thing I discovered was that every landlord I spoke with was just as frustrated as I was. We were all getting the same results cause we were all following the same teachings that the industry taught. 

“At first I was relieved by this because I now understood I wasn’t the problem- the industry was! Every book, every video, every so called ‘Guru’ taught the same thing (and still do today). 

“If we want different results then we must do something different. That is what we did. We stopped focusing on just trying to find and hope for a Perfect Tenant but instead on how to create the Perfect Tenant. Once we did that, the results immediately changed! 

“We found that by doing different things not taught in this industry but borrowing the concepts from other industries we were able to create Perfect Tenants from the pool of tenants we already had. 

“I started the mindset of creating Perfect Tenants and incorporated it into our rental business. I went to work creating, testing, honing and tweaking systems on every aspect of owning a rental home.

“Now 20+ years later these systems have been tested, changed as needed, and proven to work for us in our business. We were able to create Perfect Tenants and eliminate almost all of our headaches while drastically increasing our profits. Today I self-manage all of our rentals and enjoy the freedom that I originally set out to acquire.”

At our upcoming Convention, he will share ideas from his powerful systems on how to CREATE the perfect tenant with you! 


Mary Hart is a retired attorney and sought-after speaker, active real estate investor, national educator, and mentor. Mary actively practiced law for over 28 years and has taught real estate investors how to accelerate and preserve wealth through estate planning and asset protection planning. At our Convention she will teach with special emphasis on how to CREATE future wealth for love ones and the next generation.

If you are considering giving or planning to pass on your properties to your kids at some point, to create future success, I would highly encourage you to attend Mary’s sessions at this year’s Convention. The truth is, whatever wealth you’ve accumulated will be passed on (however, if not done correctly, it may not be as much as you hope and not all to who you hope). Learn from Mary, various effective ways it can be done. She clearly and freely shares numerous specific methods of transferring or passing wealth to others, including your kids, life partners, or others. At our recent landlord retreat, she received the highest rating on any speaker we have ever had on the topic of estate planning.

Mary particularly enjoys empowering others with the knowledge to create their own financial freedom and leave a lasting legacy – which she considers to be the ultimate love letter! Although Mary loved the practice of law, she knew she could empower more people through education and coaching, so she closed her law office in 2019 to focus on helping a larger number of people enrich their lives through financial literacy and personal development. Her greatest desire is to use her knowledge as an attorney, investor and educator to serve others on their path to a well-designed life and a lasting personal legacy.

    What a lineup of speakers, I think this conference is getting better and better. I have been to about 5 of them and think this might the strongest group ever. I have been in this business since 1981 and know I will benefit from this conference. Can’t wait to start absorbing information on how to make my full time business better and better.

    I’m overwhelmed by the number of speakers and caliber of speakers and more so of all the speakers there’s only 2 which I’ve never heard. I’ve been attending Mr. Landlord retreats and conventions for over 8 yrs and its been remarkable to see the variety speakers and relevancy to the economic times. Its more than I could ever expect or even imagine from any other conferences. Your events are one stop shop for all a landlord needs. The networking is just next to none other. I can appreciate how Mr. Landlord rewards his attendees who have shown great success in their business and have brought them in as speakers i.e. Steven Cavanaugh the technology guru and Al Williamson with Airbnb and now Chad Harris and Wendy and others. He’s also always making sure that we get our money’s worth in more ways than one. Seeing other top speakers such as Anthony Chara and others come as attendees and give of their time during the evening to host discussion tables speaks volumes as to the caliber of Mr. Landlord organization. Dot and Jeffery you definitely set the standard for all the landlords out here who are thirsty for knowledge and can come to your conventions etc and go back home with Tools that we can actually take back and revise and implement policy and procedures right away. Another very important thing you do is to give updates to those who purchased your programs in the past and that really makes a big difference. I wish that other instructors would come alongside you and do the same so as they update their programs or at least offer updates even for a fee. After saying all that when is the next live Bootcamp?
