in 1988, shortly after I got my license and starting practicing real estate, my first broker walked into my desk area and said he was making me the new property manager for the firm. At the time, we had 140 units, and I was put in charge of the operations with little more than "on the job training." I was on a learning curve for a while, but soon got a good handle on the ins and outs of property management.
Since then, I have managed everything from cottages to castles. I am seasoned and well-versed in all types of property managment, including vacation rentals, commercial leases, single-family homes, and multi-family properties. In property management, nothing beats experience. And, I have got 26 years under my belt. There is absolutely no property managment situation out there that I cannot handle.
A large number of my properties in my current portofolio are owned by clients to whom I have sold the properties. I find no stronger sign of customer satisfaction than when the new homeower's hands me the keys to a property I just sold them and asks me to add the property to my management portfolio . I know they are satified cusotmers and are confident in my continued abilities to assist them long after the sales transaction is completed. I have properties now that I have managed for over 20 years! See Brook and Jim D. comments in my Testimonials.
I will never forget those early days in my career when I was thrust into property management with little or no training. Even though I did graduate college with a bacheIors degree in Business Finance, I quickly learned what it really takes to succeed by decades of on the job training. Today, the formula for my continued success consists of attention to details, integrity, full disclosure to my fiduciaries, and always keeping the wants and needs of my property owners up front.
