Administrative & Management

Mike James
Managing Director - Hobsonville
Managing Director - Hobsonville

After being involved as a builder from the age of 18, Mike decided it was time to take control. From a young man at the age of 24 he started to build a property portfolio to secure his future legacy. 

18years later Mike attended a property investing seminar and this was the change for him in the business. What he learned over the next five years about property investing gave him the confidence and skills not only  to build on his property portfolio, but share the wealth of knowledge with others -sharing his  knowledge and skills with new property investors all wanting to secure their financial future. As a coach this has been his most rewarding experience of his life, building on a property portfolio far beyond his wildest dreams

Being a qualified builder, it then made sense 5 years later to combine his knowledge of investment properties, experience of renovating properties, together with building experience, to take the next step into Property Management.

This is where The Rent Shop Hobsonville was born. Having the enriched business background with plenty of experience and a love for building and property investment. For several years these two passions of property investment and building were operating in isolation, until he had the idea to unite the two. Mike combined his business experience with property investment and building to offer a professional and ethical property management one stop shop solution. This is when he made the decision to join this Award-winning Property Management Company- The Rent Shop and became the first Licensee in the West Auckland area.

At the Rent Shop Hobsonville we are passionate, not just about managing your property but about maximising it. We offset our fees by genuinely supporting our clients into a better financial and emotional position than if they were self-managing. Becoming the West Auckland Specialist is about partnership – working alongside people who leverage our knowledge and strategies to make the most of their investments, nurture growth and move towards their goals. We offer the One Stop Shop Solution.

What can a property manager do for me?

Owning property investments can be a fast track to financial success – if you know how to manage them. Not properly managing your property, however, can cause unforeseen financial and emotional strain.

Of course, we want you to avoid all that. Below are 7 key reasons why you should hire a property manager. With our help, you can reap the rewards of your investment – without the hassles and headaches.
Set the Right Rent
Property managers know the market inside out. Our team can accurately predict the actual value of your property based on its type and location. That way, you get the maximum return on your investment.
Find the Right Tenant
Your property is a massive investment, so we make sure the right people rent it. Our in-depth vetting process includes background and security audits, credit checks, and verifying landlord and employer references – to ensure we’re bringing on respectful, responsible, and reliable tenants.
Collect Payments
We’ve found you the right tenants; now you need to see the returns. Our proven systems keep our property managers on the ball with collecting rent and avoiding overdue payments – no ifs, ands, or buts.
Manage Problems
We make your landlord experience hassle-free by dealing with the little things so you don’t have to: lost keys, blocked pipes, tenant conflict, and unpaid rent. We’ll keep you updated of any issues, and you can be sure we’ll tend to them promptly.
Manage Contractors
Maintenance is a big part of owning any property. We take care of all communications with tradies, contractors, suppliers, and vendors. Our trusted network of specialist contractors means we can find you the best person for the job at the best price.
Bridge the Distance
Owning and managing a property requires constant check-ups. Property managers bridge the location gap between you and your property so that you can trust your property is being properly looked after, wherever you are.
Ensure Compliance & Protect Your Investment
Changes to The Residential Tenancies Act 1986 and the Healthy Homes Guarantee Act 2017 mean that the fees you can incur from DIY property rental far outweigh the costs of hiring a professional property manager. It’s our job to know legislation inside out and enforce it, so you don’t have to.
