Why Choose Us?

When you own a residential investment property you can either manage the property yourself or you can use a real estate agent to manage it for you.

Here are some things you should consider before making a decision:

  • Will you save money by managing it yourself?
  • Are you prepared to deal with tenants and all of the repairs?
  • Are you ready for the responsibility and do you have the time to spare?
  • Do you know what your rights and responsibilities are?
  • Do you know the tenant's rights and responsibilities?
  • How will this affect your tax?
