This has been an unprecedented year, filled with highs and lows. 

The year will, unfortunately, be defined by a global pandemic that has taken countless lives and affected each and every one of us.

But today, on Thanksgiving, we want you to take a step back, take a break, and consider all you have to be thankful for. While we've all suffered hardship and loss this year, the purpose of The Crushing Debt Podcast is to provide a sense that "everything will be okay."

As with previous years, today I look back since last November on all that I have to be thankful for. What do you have to be thankful for this year? 

In addition to everything else, we are very thankful for our sponsor Sam Cohen at Attorneys First Insurance - Sam@AttorneysFirst.com, www.AttorneysFirst.com

What do you do best?

If you own investment property and your answer is anything other than "property management" then this episode of the Crushing Debt Podcast is for you.

In today's episode, I interview Mark Sorokurs of Central Pinellas Realty and Collman Properties. I've known Mark about five years and he's been in real estate for about eight years now after "retiring" from IT in 2012.

Mark and I discuss:

  • What is property management?
  • Why would someone need or want to hire a property manager?
  • How do property managers save their clients money?
  • How property managers can help find and screen tenants?
  • The impact of COVID on finding (and removing) tenants?
  • What happens when things go wrong with a tenant?
  • What happens when the tenant owes more at move-out than the amount of the security deposit?
  • Craziest property management story, and more!

You can reach Mark at www.centralpinellasrealty.com, www.collmanproperties.com, and office@collmanproperties.com

Imagine coming home from work and having to tell your spouse that he/she HAS to go back to work to make ends meet.

Unfortunately, that's where I found myself a few years ago.

In 2008, I left the first firm I first founded to start Yesner Law, from scratch, again. This time, however, I had an established network and knew a little about how to generate referrals.

Still, I needed to find a way to have more money at the end of the month, rather than more month at the end of the money. One of the ways I did that was to start this podcast, write my first book - Crushing Debt: 9 Strategies to Eliminate Financial Bullies - and then my second book - Become Debt Free in Less Than One Hour.

Come on!  Can you really become debt free in less than one hour? No - but the strategies in my new book can be implemented in less than one hour and, over time, can create the income you need to pay off your debt!

Strategies like:

  • Getting Educated about your Credit Score;
  • Creating a Budget
  • Getting Good Habits about Money
  • Decreasing Your Taxes
  • Starting a Side Hustle
  • Selling Products
  • Reducing Expenses
  • Negotiating with Creditors

Florida had a moratorium on evictions and foreclosures. That moratorium ended with some controversy, but ultimately was not renewed because the Federal Government also has a moratorium in place; evictions potentially halted by the CDC and foreclosures of federally-backed mortgages halted by the CARES Act.

At some point, tenants will have to pay rent again, and homeowners will have to pay mortgage payments again. None of the moratoriums, state or federal eliminate the obligation to pay.

When that day comes, will the tenants / borrowers be able to pay?

In this week's episode of The Crushing Debt Podcast, I interview Brenda Kennedy, a licensed real estate and short sale specialist with over 14 years' experience. Brenda is a Tampa native, offering a wealth of knowledge and experience working with sellers. In fact, Brenda modified her own loan with Bank of America in the last market crash!

Brenda and I discuss:

  • Association foreclosures
  • Forbearances
  • Foreclosures
  • Both state and federal moratoriums
  • Subordinate (second) mortgages
  • Relocation incentives
  • Brenda's craziest short sale story
  • and more!

You can reach Brenda at Brenda@KennedyHomeSales or 813-732-9593.
