Vantage West Property Management

Rethinking Okanagan Valley Property Management in Kelowna

Okanagan Valley Property Management that’s Personal and Professional

We’re landlords, too. We know what it’s like to own rental real-estate and wonder whether it’s being properly cared for, maintained, and occupied. Before becoming professional property managers ourselves, we struggled to find a Kelowna property management company that would lease our units to quality tenants, coordinate maintenance, and provide accurate accounting. We also knew we wanted more than that. We wanted property managers who could consult on the entire asset and provide sound investment advice and insight.

Investing in real-estate is more than playing defense. It’s more than rent collection and tenant placement. Like most real estate investors, we like to see a return and to grow our net worth and passive income. Why is it that conversations with Okanagan Valley property management firms never focus on this actual goal?

At Vantage West Property Management, those conversations happen with every client.

We manage rental homes in Kelowna, West Kelowna, Vernon, Lake Country, and Peachland, as well as surrounding areas.

Okanagan Valley Investors Need Full-Service Real Estate Management

We don’t assume that property owners have it all figured out and are only looking to delegate the headaches associated with being a landlord. We know that there’s an overwhelming need for a qualified professional advisor to help guide the decision making around investments. Investors at every level need help quantifying their returns.

We manage properties all over Okanagan Valley, including Kelowna and Vernon, as well as neighboring communities.

We provide objective feedback on their current performance, as well as honest advice around whether to continue to hold or divest themselves of properties. Obviously, we cannot improve what we do not measure. With our team, you get our full attention on managing your financial investment, and we’ll also take care of those daily hassles and headaches like:

  • Screening potential tenants

  • Enforcing the lease

  • Collecting rent

  • Marketing your vacant property

  • Responding to emergency and routine maintenance

  • Conducting move-in inspections and documenting your property’s condition

We Provide Tenant Management

Tenant relationships are critical to the success of your investment. We know that a good investment experience starts with a good rental experience for your residents.

We make sure we find and place the right tenants, and then we work hard throughout the tenancy to keep those tenants. We want to minimize the potential for vacancy and turnover costs.

Our tenant management plans cover all aspects of tenant relations. We treat your tenants respectfully and professionally while holding them accountable to the lease agreement. Protecting your assets and interests is critical, and we’ve found we can do that while continuing to be accessible and available to your residents.

We’re here to maximize rents and minimize vacancy. Our property managers understand how to maximize the return on investment from your Kelowna investment property.

We Provide Service Management

Leasing, managing, and maintaining your home are all the services in the heart of our Okanagan Valley property management expertise.

We take care of marketing your home and showing your properties to prospective tenants. We screen tenants thoroughly and conduct the move-in process and execute the lease.

Once we have the tenant approved and the move-in funds collected, we pay attention to anything your property needs throughout that tenancy. This requires the efficient management of work-order requests, service personnel, contractors, trades, purchase orders, and active preventative maintenance.

With any capital expenditure, our aim is to increase value and reduce expenses. Our network of professionals can get jobs done efficiently without you paying retail prices that could eat up your net operating income (NOI).

We Provide Financial Management

Financial management is not just about the collection of rent and payment of bills. Those things are important elements in the effective management of your investment, but we go a few steps further.

For the Vantage West Property Management team, exceptional financial management results in the reduction of expenses and solid cash-flow management. Our experience has demonstrated that investors need more than a monthly statement of income and expenses.

Taking the time to do a semi-annual review to properly quantify your returns is something that sets us apart from other property managers in Kelowna and Okanagan Valley. Financial planners send you a statement with your returns in black and white, why not your real estate portfolio manager?

Client Reviews

Ezra our property manager is very responsive and efficient. When the pipes at our property froze, he moved very quickly to initiate repairs and to look after our tenants. He provides updates and information regularly and makes sure that he is managing the property according to our wishes, but he also offers helpful suggestions. We are lucky to have found him!

Trevor has been managing our 2 properties for us in Kelowna for the last year. We are very happy to have him as our property manager. You can tell he really cares, and the time, effort, communication, and attention to detail that he puts in really shows. Overall it’s been a fantastic & stress free experience, and we look forward to continuing to work with him. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
Thanks!

Ezra and his team at Vantage West Realty has been fantastic thus far in managing our condo in Kelowna. A year prior to having them work with us, I reached out to several property management companies, and he was the only one that phoned me back and had a very real conversation with me in terms of our options and expectations. When it came time to make a decision on who to work with, the decision was easy. He met us in person to walk through the condo and made us feel comfortable and confident in him taking care of the property.

I have been fortunate enough to work with Trevor numerous times in the past. Being a Realtor I work with a ton of investor clients who are looking for a turn key investment which is where Trevor plays a crucial role. My clients have always spoke highly of him. This was my first time personally using him to place tenants for my rental property and it was top notch! I couldn't be happier honestly. From start to finish it was seamless. Thank you Trevor and whole team over at Vantage West Property Management. I look forward to doing a lot more business with you!

I've been working with Ezra since February 2020. Ezra and his team have demonstrated great care and professionalism. They've gone above and beyond with the day to day including personal touches. This has been exemplified in their response to covid and the handling of both tenant and landlord concerns. I would not hesitate to recommend him. It's been truly a huge stress reliever to have someone who cares look after my investment. Thank you!

Switched from a different company to Vantage West to look after my two rental properties. Working with Ezra, our property manager, has been fantastic. His dedication and communication skills are outstanding and he goes the extra mile. From managing the final steps of our construction project to finding great tenants and always staying on top things. Have been working with different property management firms in the past, but have never been happier.
