First Choice Property Managers the Professional Team Lightens the Load for Landlords

Article excerpt

BECOMING a landlord can be a daunting, yet exciting experience. However, if the services of a professional agency and property manager are engaged, the worry and challenges are significantly minimised.

And when you are considering just who to use, then it would pay you to visit First Choice Realty and speak to the property management professionals, Jenni Abraham and Simone Buchanan.

Jenni has been a property manager in Hervey Bay for more than seven years while Simone has been involved with real estate since 2006.

aI enjoy the challenge and getting my clients the maximum return for their investment.a

aIf you have people coming and going all the time it makes it hard to get the cohesion necessary to make the team work effectively.

aFor example our senior property manager, Ray McMullen, has been a property manager with First Choice since its inception nearly 10 years ago.

aAnd he has been a property manager in Hervey Bay for 18 years and has been involved in real estate since 1985.

aBoth Simone and I have learned a great deal from Ray and one of the main things he has taught us is to be honest in our dealings with all our clients. …
