Property Management Services

“We engaged Dave’s services back in 2008 to manage two of our rental properties in Richmond. It was a weight off our minds to have someone so capable and efficient handling everything from making sure rent was paid on time, getting new tenants when current tenants moved on and ensuring that tenants looked after our properties and kept the grounds tidy. On top of that Dave’s a really nice guy. We thoroughly recommend his services.”
-Emma and Jeremy

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.
