Sure, simply be friendly and be honest. Take some time to chew the fat and then work on explaining how you do business. Explain that you like to work closely with park managers both when you buy homes, and when you sell homes. As a small company, you are able to provide more personal service to the park than the major finance companies. If problems arise, they get you on the line, not some clerk.
Let them know that you are there to help them with homes that other people simply arn’t buying. You understand that the park wants performing lot rents and decent tenants. You are willing to pay cash (for the right price) for these homes. This may help get rid of bad tenants for the park. You will work closely with the park to find a buyer that meets the parks tenant standards. Once the home has sold, you will work closely with the park to monitor this buyer and make certain they are paying lot rent. Should something go bad, you will work side by side with the park to get the people out and new buyers for the park to approve.
Jacque, after chatting with you at the MH chat the other night, I would just suggest you be yourself. You are naturally friendly and approachable. Just take the time to let the PM know this, then explain your business.
