To say that Rental Advisors and Jodi Southwick are the ``wind beneath my wings`` sounds corny, but it is pretty darn accurate. I do what I do extremely well (finding people rentals in the greater Houston area), but I am not really an internet guru or social media marketing expert. Jodi is both of those things, and so much more. I would say that easily 1/3 of my annual revenue can be traced back to Jodi Southwick. She is the secret ingredient in my my business recipe!

Jodi is highly respected in her industry and shows sincere interest in her clients. She recognizes the strengths and weakness of her clients and reaches out to help them to initiate creative ideas and to also think 'outside the box'. Jodi is very clever and imaginative and she is always experimenting with new programs to help her continue to grow and improve so she can help her clients to do the same. She excels at developing programs and websites and is skilled at turning problems into opportunities. Jodi and I have an effective working relationship and I would recommend her service to anyone. She is a wonderful person with a caring attitude.

I've been working with Rental Advisors since 2017 and Jodi has recreated my apartment locating brand into a sophisticated luxury website in Dallas. I constantly get compliments about the richness of my website, and how it represents my brand accurately. I am not a tech savvy person and working with Jodi I don't need to be. She runs everything in the background and sends me status reports as needed. When I hired her I had a single landing page, now I have an online lead funnel that generates leads.
