What’s in store for 2024? We interviewed 24 different multifamily leaders to get their take on challenges and opportunities for the year ahead. What are they most focused on, and what’s the strategy to address it?

Join us for the kickoff of RealPage’s annual Voices project, where industry leaders — representing a diverse swath of roles, geographies, portfolios and multifamily asset types — open their playbooks to share their game plans for 2024.

In this webcast, RealPage® experts Jay Parsons, Andrew Bowen and Carl Whitaker will share their top takeaways from the 24 leaders. But more importantly, you’ll hear highlight clips directly from all 24 interviews.
