Performance based Praise
Beyond testimonials and proven results, one of the stronger statements about L. A. 'Tony' Kovach and the MHC-MD team is that they've been featured speaker/trainers at numerous private, state, regional and national association events.
At regional or national events such as Louisville, Tulsa, Las Vegas or Tunica and at state association events such as New York, Texas, Wisconsin, Indiana and others, Tony Kovach, Tim Connor or other MHC-MD associates have presented on:
- social media,
- maximizing community value for resale and
- other topics targeting MHC owner/operators with strong, positive reviews.
Tony and his colleagues are invited to present to associations precisely because in the real world they get the job done.
L. A. 'Tony' Kovach started his manufactured housing career in sales in 1981. He rapidly rose to management and lead turn around efforts at a number of retail centers before opening his own in 1986. By the third year in business, Tony's center was in the top 1% of all retailers in the U.S.. Tony profitably sold his retail center and entered consulting, including successes outside of manufactured housing in the RV and campgrounds industry.
About a decade ago, Tony began working in marketing/sales/management turn-around and infills for previously struggling manufactured housing communities. He uses proprietary, proven systems which:
- improve resident relations and satisfaction
- increase resident referrals
- improve collections and reduce deliquesces
- raise margins on new and pre-owned home sales
- through KYP and SPIN marketing, sales and management systems.
While many of the services are preformed by Tony's himself, his team includes web-tech/IT, social networking and other marketing specialists.
It also includes professionals such as Tim Connor, who has provided sales and management training for professionals in dozens of manufactured housing and other industries in 23 countries around the world. Connor is the author of numerous books including one of the top selling sales books of all time, Soft Sell, which has sold over 1 million copies.
“All success is based on implementing tested, proven processes that can be repeated. Think about that for a minute. Any field, any career, there are processes that are followed that work. That holds true in manufactured home communities too. Once you learn and know those processes and can teach others to follow them, success is the natural outcome.”

“We work with clients in confidence and with non-disclosures. Unless we mutually agree to release results or a statement, our work is off the record.”
