Ascend STL INC - May 15, 2018

Main Event 7:30pm 

Ascend STL INC

Have you ever accepted vouchers from the St. Louis Housing Authority? Do you even know about them?  If so, do you know what the current rules are? If you would like to know how your bottom-line could be improved by utilizing the new programs, then don’t miss the latest up-to-date info this month!

Ascend STL Inc. works with the large Housing Authorities in the St. Louis region. 

Ascend was founded in 1999 to help finance large housing developments. In 2016, Ascend created the Mobility Connection program in partnership with the St. Louis Housing Authority and the Housing Authority of St. Louis County.

Janie Oliphant will be sharing how The Mobility Connection program helps families with Housing Choice Vouchers move to areas of high opportunity in St. Louis City and County and how you can make rental income through participation in the program.

Motivation for the program came from groundbreaking research that showed that helping families with vouchers move to low-poverty neighborhoods significantly improves college attendance rates and earnings for children who were young (below age 13) when their families moved.

HandyVets 

Do you need help with your home projects? Want someone you can trust? What about getting quality work done and at the same time supporting our veterans? You’re in for a treat as we have another special, local guest this month. 

HandyVets is a Veteran owned residential and commercial handyman company. Ben Murphy, Founder and CEO will be showing us how they can help with anything from installing fences, to garbage disposals, and drywall repair.

Their technicians wear many hats and work with the integrity and discipline that you would expect from one of their employees. They are fully insured and all of their employees are drug and background screened.

HandyVets has a large database of referrals, so if there is something they cannot do, they can refer someone who absolutely can.

 

Early Bird Session 6:30pm 

Wholesale Siding Depot

What kind of siding should you put on your homes? Is there really a difference? What about windows and deck? Have you ever talked to an expert? Do you want to hear from an expert? You’re in luck! 

One of our valued vendors, Julius Krisanic of Wholesale Siding Depot along with CertainTeed siding representative Lance Finland will be enlightening us with their Vytec and CertainTeed siding program. They will be including the most popular siding as well as many other window and deck products available in the St. Louis area. 

This will be extremely informative and they will have a Q & A during their session. Come early and bring a friend. You’ll be glad you did.

It is not often that an organization translates into so many benefits.  However, the STLREIA™ is such an organization.  We joined and have been very pleased. The mini help sessions allow for a broad base of information covering many relevant topics regarding the "joys" of being in the home rental business. Topics can range from great bargains for appliances, materials, or great contractors to how to deal with pets, pest, or poor tenants.  We always enjoy the main speaker as well. We have learned many helpful tips even though we have been in the rental business for 25 yrs. The best part about being a member of STLREIA™ is that all the great tips generally translate into some cost saving measure or a way to increase your income.  And lastly, the monthly newsletter is wonderful. It's a win win situation.  We live 150 miles south of St. Louis and though we can't make every meeting, we find every trip rewarding.

Having been a member of several REIAs in various cities, I highly recommend this one!  Come early to attend the monthly help clinics, and ask about the networking lunches.
