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!

Wow I highly recommend and trust Christine Loseth from Vantage with our largest investment. Absolutely blown away by the experience and thought process that Chrissy and the team delivered. Outstanding communication, customer service and professionalism. Owning a rental condo in a different city from your primary residence can be stressful. Chrissy took care of everything, from market assessment to help us choose the correct rates, in person inspection, and placed the right tenant in LESS than 15 DAYS. The work didn't end there, she helped the tenant with move in access/security, established a great relationship with the building management staff and collected all rent on time. Communication and trust is everything. The Vantage owners portal is excellent for real time account information, 24/7 and I know we will be quickly informed if needed with a personal touch. Thank you Chrissy and the entire Vantage team!

I have no regrets with signing up with Christine Loseth as a property manager. She is very professional, easy to communicate with, responds quickly to calls and texts, and very knowledgeable. My first experience with a pm was horrendous as she did not respond to calls and lied to me. Working with Christine was a breath of fresh air. I described her as a 'spitfire' and got me a quality renter within a week. I hope to continue to work with her for the long run.

I really enjoyed working with Chrissy! She took the time to properly onboard me with clear, effective communication, and offered professional advice throughout the entire process. She quickly evaluated the property, built an advertisement, and ultimately rented it within the anticipated time frame. I highly recommend Chrissy and Vantage West.

Our first time dealing with Vantage and must say they are most definitely worthy or a 5 star review! From our first viewing to our move in date we were assisted by Chris Wall who made the whole process seamless and stress free. Usually the process of relocating and moving is daunting and always has its challenges but not with Vantage..... Friendly, personable and very professional! To sum it up our whole experience was top-notch thanks to Chris Wall at Vantage we couldn't be happier in our new home. .. Jamie and Christopher

This was our first time using Vantage West Realty services. We were very impressed with the services provided by our realtor, Kelli Calvert. Kelli was quick to reply to our enquiry and visit the property. We found Kelli to be professional, informative, friendly, prompt, and very thorough. Kelli provided us with all the necessary documentation, expertise, and advise in a timely manner. We highly recommend Kelli, and would not hesitate to utilize her expertise in the future.
