What can a Property Manager do for me?

Owning property investments can be an awesome way to gain financial success if you know how to manage them. However, not properly managing your property can cause you financial and emotional stresses that we want you to avoid.

Below are 6 key reasons why you should get a property manager, so you can reap the rewards from your investment.
Your Property Value
Property managers know the market like the back of their hand. Our team can accurately predict the true value of your property based on its type and its location. This means you can get the maximum return on your investment.
Finding the Right Tenant
Your property is a huge investment, so we want to make sure it's rented by the right people. Our in-depth vetting processes include running background and security audits, credit checks, and verifying landlord and employer references.
We've found you the right tenants, now you need to see the returns. Property managers have proven systems in place so they can stay on the ball with collecting rent and avoiding overdue payments, no "if's", no "but's", no problems!
Managing Tenants
We make your landlord experience hassle-free by dealing with the little things: Lost keys, blocked pipes, tenant conflict, and unpaid rent. We'll keep you in the loop with any issues, and you can be sure we'll tend to them.
Managing Middle-men
Part of owning a property means maintenance. We take care of all communications with tradesmen, contractors, suppliers, and vendors. Our wide network of specialised contractors means we can find you the best person for the job and the best quotes.
Distance Made Easy
Owning a property and managing it means constant check-ups. With a property manager, we bridge the location-gap between you and your property, so you can trust that your property is being well looked after wherever you are.
