Edmonton Property Manager Tradeshow

We just got back from the Edmonton Suites and Homes Tradeshow yesterday. It features over 100 Exhibitors showcasing their products and services to well over 700 real estate agents and apartment landlords and property managers who attend.

People who attend are:

  • Rental Housing Executives
  • Rental Housing Investors
  • Independent Rental Owners
  • Edmonton¬†Property Managers
  • Asset Managers
  • Maintenance Managers & Supervisors
  • Commercial Realtors

We were up there talking to Edmonton property managers and individual landlords who need our service to list their Edmonton apartment rentals or houses for rent in Edmonton.

Wow, was it worth our time! We practiced our elevator pitch and went to work talking to hundreds of Edmonton landlords and real estate agents. What’s our elevator pitch? We are a rental website connecting landlords to renters. We get 1000s of visitors a day and are number one for most google terms like Edmonton apartments. We also put our customers first. For larger property managers – we’ll even put your listings up for you, give you a free trial and a free banner.

Did I tell you we have a great booth? We got there early for setup and started at 10am talking to our first clients. Craig and Dennis did a great job talking to our clients and potential clients. We got some great feedback from Brian to provide some of our metrics back to landlords like what is the most popular community in Edmonton, most popular rent range or how many renters are searching for Edmonton apartment rentals that allow pets. This kind of information would help property managers decide how to market and position their ads to renters or what neighbourhoods to buy in.

What’s next? Sales! We’re going to follow up with all our leads like Sarah from Ayre & Oxford Inc. or David from Birchwood Equities. Hopefully we’ll get a lot of new rental listings in Edmonton up over the next couple of weeks and break 400 Edmonton rental units. After that we’ll be going to the Calgary Tradeshow.
