Heather is my real estate agent of choice and here is why. Although I love property investment as I consider it an excellent vehicle for both growth and income I have absolutely no interest in dealing with the details of managing the property. I chose Heather not only because she is fantastic at what she does she also understands property management form the investors point of view and personally I like the idea of property management for investors by investors.
It is too easy to stay with the ‘devil you know’ though and again I did not want to have to deal with the details. Beyond adding my signature to some forms I did not have to concern myself with anything. Heather handled the entire process from woe to go making it seamless. It could have been tricky as the old property manager had allowed my investment property to fall into arrears. Heather, whilst keeping me in the loop, handled the entire process and in the end I came out of a potentially disastrous situation with the rent paid in full, my property returned to me in excellent condition and I now have a tenant (hand picked by Heather) that will work for my property.
Everyone is happy. Especially me. So happy in fact I am giving her a second property to look after. Do yourself a favour and hire Heather as your property manager. You will not need to give it a second thought.
