OUR AUCKLAND PROPERTY MANAGEMENT FEES
We take a personal approach to each client relationship – going over and above to ensure that a property is managed to the very highest of standards.
Our firsthand experience in investing and management means we treat every property like it’s our own - this means we keep a close eye on everything. This is why we limit the number of properties each manager can look after to just 60. This allows each manager to provide the highest level of care by giving them time to find the best tenants, do comprehensive inspections, maintain open communication with all parties, check rents daily, follow up with tradesmen, and ensure that the property meets all legislation to protect the owner from inadvertent breaches.
All of our owners and tenants are treated with respect, courtesy and professionalism.
We keep a close eye on your property to catch maintenance before it becomes a problem.
NO HIDDEN CHARGES
There are no surprises in our fees. We don't have any 'add-ons' to invoices we pay on your behalf.
WE CARE ABOUT DETAILS
We work hard to avoid missing details so we can maintain positive relationships.
