Besides, being a blogging buddy of mine — John’s blog is entitled the Dr. Rent Chronicles — John is a Wausau area landlord and landlord-tenant law guru, and Past-President og the Wisconsin Apartment Association. John is a very dynamic speaker – you will not want to miss his presentation. His most recent post is a great overview of Rent Certificates.
Here is some more info about John:
