Scott Abernathy began his property management career by purchasing his first triplex in October of 1989. From there he joined Coldwell Banker where he sharpened his real estate skills for thirteen years until he was offered the position of managing broker of a Prudential Real Estate office. At Prudential he continued to grow his property management business while supervising over 40 real estate agents. In August 2010 he agreed to a joint venture with Reliant Realty, LLC to open their property management division. In the summer of 2018, Abernathy opened Reliant Property Management, Inc, a stand-alone real estate and property management firm. In March of 2017, Reliant Property Management franchised with Property Management Inc, forming PMI Professionals. Since then, Abernathy has opened two other Property Management Inc. Franchises, PMI of Memphis serving the West Tennessee market and PMI North Alabama serving the Huntsville area market.
During Abernathy’s career, he has acquired his own rental property portfolio of approximately twenty units, showing his belief that scattered site rental property ownership is the best way for middle class Americans to become upper class Americans. He is also proud to be the Regional Mentor for Tennessee in the Property Management Inc. Franchise.
Abernathy is dedicated to helping fellow landlords make the best of their rental properties. He is the author of “Kingpin Landlord: Unlocking the Secrets to Real Estate Investing”. In this eight chapter book, Abernathy shows landlords how to generate more revenue and keep themselves out of trouble in a fascinating narrative format. Kingpin Landlord is available at Amazon.com and BarnesAndNoble.com.
