Our Story

Why We Do What We Do

Being landlords ourselves, we had longed for a management firm that would not only perform the core competencies of keeping units filled with quality tenants, coordinating maintenance items and basic accounting, but could also provide the kind of objective insight and consulting around the investment side as well. After all it’s not just about playing defense. Like most investors in real estate, we like to see a return and to grow our net worth and passive income. Why is it that the conversation with a property management firm never focuses on this actual goal?

Maybe it’s assumed that the property owners have it all figured out and are only looking to delegate the headaches associated with being a landlord. My career as a realtor, consulting many on real estate investments has led me to believe, there is an overwhelming need for a qualified professional advisor to help guide the decision making around these investments. People need help quantifying the return, and need objective feedback on their current properties 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.

An annual review with a dually licensed professional in both real estate sales and rental property management, and more importantly a fellow real estate investor with the same goals themselves, should be a cornerstone to any property manager/client engagement. At this review, a thorough analysis of the return on investment for each property in the portfolio is performed and a pro active game plan to improving the performance of the investment takes place.

We are a management firm for people who have chosen real estate as their vehicle to wealth and financial freedom. Managed by investors for investors you need a manager that understands your property is not just a building or a house, it is an asset, and needs to be managed as one. Managing an asset does not simply mean collecting rent and managing repairs. It means holding every dollar of equity accountable to a strong return.

In order for a manager to successfully achieve the above mentioned goals, there are three areas that they must continually be focused on.

Tenant Management

This covers all aspects of tenant relations. It requires a person who understands how to manage and maintain tenant requests and expectations while ensuring your interests are protected and the tenants are respected. Maximizing rents and minimizing vacancy is where it all starts. Our managers know exactly how to get the absolute most revenue possible from your Kelowna investment property.

Service Management

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).

Financial Management

This is not just about the collection of rent and payment of bills, proper financial management results in a reduction of expenses and solid cash-flow management. Taking the time to do a semiannual review to properly quantify your returns is something that we feel sets us apart. Financial planners send you a statement with your returns in black and white, why not your real estate portfolio manager?

Trevor really helped me out during the pandemic to find someone to rent my suite. He was very responsive and gave me good advice on how to manage my properties. He has been an asset for me as I do not live in the Kelowna area and has helped me to reduce the headache of managing my property from afar. Excellent service!

Excellent! We had a very good experience with Trevor and being first time landlords, as the lease moved on we became more comfortable with Trevor's communication and his professionalism.

My wife and I worked very closely with Ezra to find an exceptional tenant to rent our brand new property. At the outset it was evident that Ezra was client centric. He conveyed intimate knowledge of the marketplace. He gave helpful practical advice and recommendations without dictating to us a decision. Where there was miscommunication he was proactive in addressing it. At all times he was extremely professional and interested in working towards a long term client relationship. Although we ended up only requiring finding a tenant services and not ongoing property management Services I have no reservations and warmly recommend his property management services. Mike
