Danielle Villegas spent years struggling as a film and theater artist. Setting her sights on home ownership she managed to become a landlord and over time developed a unique housing model for an underserved growing population.
Creative Landlording is essential to gain maximum personal satisfaction AND financial profit
There are many books on "How to manage your rental property and screen tenants". Danielle's unique experience and perspective introduces us to a different way of looking at housing and "home" in today's society. Land-Lording in many early western civilizations incorporated a more wholistic approach by necessity. Lords of the land often knew their tenants sometimes for generations and often traded services and counsel, providing more than simply a roof over one's head. It may be time to re-examine our assumptions about the who, what, where, when and why's of our current models and the relationship between housing, tenants and landlords. Understanding the needs of a specific and everchanging tenant population can allow landlords to fully appreciate the financial, personal, and societal benefit. The notion of communal living and definitions of family are constantly evolving. Danielle seeks opportunities to share her unique approach to landlording and creative strategies to get there.
