FLINT (WJRT) (08/14/19) - The rental property market in Flint has a huge spotlight on it.
"Just Renting" is now a part of the Heartland Network lineup, showing the behind the scenes, day-to-day management and everything in between.
"I don't think we knew exactly where it was going to end up, and to be picked up by a network, it has been phenomenal," said Branch Manager Cortne Moshier of Gebrael Management, which owns 1,500 commercial and residential properties.
A film crew was shooting scenes Wednesday with Moshier, investor Jack Galvin and CEO Nadeem Gebrael.
"I'm very passionate about the city and our business so showcasing both of those I think is going to be amazing," Gebrael said.
Gebrael said they are maintaining creative control in the deal with Heartland. Viewers will see everything from property management and acquisitions to collecting payments and highlighting Flint businesses.
"There is a lot of bizarre things. There's a lot of good, a lot of bad, a lot of crazy, so I think they're just going to get an in depth to what renting in the city is like," Moshier said.
The team believes the platform will only help with their desire to keep giving back to the city.
"We try to get involved as much as we can in the community so we're embedded in a lot of organizations and trying to help out and do things. It'll make us able to give back a little bit more, help a little bit more around the city," Gebrael said.
"Just Renting" will begin airing on Aug. 25 at 8:30 p.m. It'll be available Sundays and Tuesdays on the Heartland Network and its free Roku livestreaming channel.
