Elevate Housing Solutions

Dr. Michael C. Threatt is the principal and CEO of Elevate Housing Solutions, LLC.  Elevate Housing Solutions, LLC is a management firm that provides Section 8 Program consulting services to real estate investors, developers, landlords, nonprofits, property management companies, and public housing authorities (PHAs).

Under Dr. Threatt's subject matter expertise (SME) and leadership, the firm provides consulting and coaching for PHAs on how to Attract, Recruit, and Retain landlords in the Section 8 Program. He is known as The Section 8 Landlord Coach™. The firm also provides consulting and coaching for landlords and real estate investors on how to maximize their profit and return on investment (ROI) by participating in the Section 8 Program.



The Price of Bureaucracy: Removing Section 8 Landlord Pain Points through the Investment in Technology is the Affordable Housing Gamechanger. Each year since 2009, 10,000 landlords have withdrawn from the Section 8 program due to negative experiences and having to deal with the bureaucratic red tape. This has led to over 130,000 landlords withdrawing from the Section 8 Program. Dr. Michael C. Threatt felt compelled that this was a perfect time for a "superhero" moment to solve this problem and address landlord pain points. This book is based on Dr. Threatt's research on landlords' opinions of improving the Section 8 program by streamlining operations through technology to remove the bureaucratic red tape. The book also provides innovative solutions to increase landlord satisfaction, improve communication, and enhance customer service to cultivate better public housing authority-landlord relationships by investing in technology.
