‘Accidental Landlords’ Seek Expert Advice From Downtown Realty Company’s Quentin Green

The Accidental Landlord Podcast

Quentin Green, partner and director of development at Downtown Realty Company, recently offered advice for small-scale landlords and real estate investors on The Accidental Landlord podcast.  

Most landlords start small, often stumbling into their new role and facing a steep learning curve. When The Accidental Landlord, a podcast aimed at helping novice property owners and managers, put out a call for guests, Taylor Johnson knew Quentin Green, partner and director of development at TJ client Downtown Realty Company, would be a great fit. Leveraging his experience working closely with small-scale investors and his intimate knowledge of what’s driving the market, Green chatted with host Peter McKenzie about challenges and questions up-and-coming real estate investors face. Some key take-aways from Green’s segment include when it makes sense to self-manage your rental properties versus outsourcing, as well as when to bundle – or separate – management and leasing.
