My interview with Lorena Starkey , GM of Hyatt House, Minot

MRETToday's Radio broadcast of Minot Real Estate Today featured Lorena Starkey, General Manager of Hyatt House, Minot North Dakota.

 

When the oil boom hit Western ND in 2010 there was a huge shortage of motel/hotel rooms. In one year alone 12 motels were built. Then when the boom whent bust we went from 100% occupancy to about 15% occupancy. Many of the motels headed towards bankruptsy and almost all of them came up for sale and a few even closed down all together.

Not the Hyatt House, Minot! The Hyatt House, Minot is my neighbor being I represent the housing development just to the North of it. Every day when I come to work I see a full parking lot when I drive by. So how come they are doing so good when most of the others are failing? Listen in to find out for yourself.

Minot Real Estate Today is ared on two Minot radio stations every Friday, 109.6 FM at 12:15 PM and then again on 1320AM at 4:45 PM.

After it has been broadcast over the air you can always find the recorded episode here as a podcast on by blog at Active Rain.

Morning Bob.

Sorry sir, I just don't have 14 minutes to listen to the broadcast, at least not right this minute

It's worth listening to when you get the time James Dray . Every time I play it, it seems like 10 minutes and not 14.

I too just can't commit to 14 mintues. Sorry!  I'm sure it's quite valuable for those in your area.

Hi Bob,

Great interview! Sounds like the secret to success is a great product along with a personal touch and great team. Your Connect Minot sounds like good place to network Bob. I can see why Lorena's hotel does very well she sounds very proactive and surrounded herself with a great team member.

Thank you for listening to the broadcast/podcast Steve Higgins ,. It's obvious you did a GREAT job of listening. Lorena must be a very good judge of character to build such a successful team, I have not had that kind of success in hiring.
