About Lawton Coursey,
Sales Director

Raised in the shadow of the Teton range of Wyoming, Lawton started his path into property management from an early age. Raised in a family that self-managed multiple investment properties, Lawton quickly learned the headaches that can come from tenant relations and the day-to-day workload required to maximize profit on real estate investments.

Following graduation from Washington State University, Lawton has spent the last decade navigating the construction, sale, investment, and management of real estate in the greater Seattle Area. This holistic experiencing in all things real estate allowed Lawton to hone the skills required to maximize the return-on-investment properties. Seeing that prices are continuing to climb; while cash flow opportunities become scarcer; Lawton is committed to offering landlords an alternative to the outdated philosophies of conventional management companies; RentWatch is that solution.
