The Five Star Institute President and CEO, Ed Delgado, has announced the formation of the Single-Family Rental Association (SFRA), a member-led conduit for connection and training in the growing single-family rental market.
The Single-Family Rental Association will lead the SFR sector in identifying emerging trends, discussing solutions, and formulating best practices.
“The Single-Family Rental Association will be leading the dialogue on best practices and new business opportunities in the single-family rental market,” Delgado said. “The SFRA will fill the gap as a resource for a sector that has been largely underserved and often misrepresented.”
According to Delgado, the SFRA will expand the SFR influence across the entire real estate industry, as participants from investors (startup, mid-cap, and large), servicers, agents, brokers, legal, technology, property management and preservation, and others join this rising market.
The cornerstone of the SFRA is the Executive Leadership Council, a coalition of thought leaders which represent a cross-section of key companies and business leaders. Council members include: Chad Carpenter (CEO, Reven Housing REIT and Reven Capital, LLC); Wally Charnoff (CEO, RentRange, LLC and Investability); Laura Ferris (SVP of Product Development, Green River Capital); Miguel Gutierrez (COO, CAPREIT); Tim Herriage (CEO, 2020 REI Companies); Greg Rand (CEO, OwnAmerica); Daniel Wallace (CEO, First Key Mortgage and Co-CEO and Co-President, First Key Holdings).
The SFRA will offer ongoing training and education, networking, and business opportunities, in conjunction with the Five Star Institute’s Second Annual Single-Family Rental Summit on November 1-3, 2016 at the Frisco Conference Center at the Embassy Suites Hotel, Frisco, Texas.
Subject matter experts at the summit will answer questions and offer solutions centered around topics related to property acquisition and management, financing and investment strategies for companies of all sizes, new technology and professional services, market changes, securitization, insurance, law, rehab, and disposition.
The host sponsor of the event is OwnAmerica and star sponsors include Alacrity; Asons; Auction.com; and Williams & Williams Worldwide Auction.
