Lucas Hall

I’m an experienced landlord, real estate investor, national speaker, husband, father, and puppy-daddy. Oh, and the founder of Landlordology and head of industry relations at Cozy

I was 24 years old when I bought my first rental property . . . to impress a girl. That’s right, a girl.

She purchased her first property at the age of 23, so I did the next logical thing. I bought a 6 bedroom townhouse in her neighborhood and house hacked it, bringing my own costs to near zero. My cunning plan worked, because we married 3 years later! The moral of the story is that if diamonds are a girl’s best friend, then real estate is a close second!

My first rental property.

Now, I have dozens of tenants, properties in three states, and a profitable portfolio. I counsel thousands of property managers every year, teaching them how to successfully manage their rentals, build wealth, and keep their tenants happy.

I spend only a few hours a month self-managing my properties with Cozy, which saves me ~$34,000 a year in property management fees.

The key is to work smarter, not harder, and I’d like to show you how.
