– Hi guys, Blake Farquhar here from Kollosche Property Management, and today, we’re going to be talking about selecting the right property manager.
Topic number one I want to talk about is what energy does your property manager bring to your professional relationship? This is a key point because if your property manager may have all the experience and knowledge, but they don’t have the right energy, they’re not going to perform for you because they’re going to be burnt out and tired, and that is very common in this industry. So just make sure that when you’re talking to them and dealing with them, that they’ve got this energy there that you know that they’re going to look after and be reactive to any situation that comes up within your management with them.
The next thing I want to talk about is, does your property manager have the right modern and proactive systems and processes such owner portals? And by that, I mean they could be very on-the-ball with old paper systems. That’s great. With modern technology, we have portals and systems now that way, you can log in 24/7 and if you try and call your property manager, you don’t get a hold of them, or you want an answer right now, you can log, see your information, see where your term’s paid up to, all the documents and everything saved all on these online portals. Just make sure that when you’re searching your property manager, they have this available to you.
Lastly, knowledge plus experience plus the right attitude equals success, and you’ll have a successful property portfolio if your property manager has all these things and easily be able to choose the best property manager for your investment.
