Property Management

Although our Real Estate focus is on sales and marketing; client's satisfaction remain as our number one priority.  Since the inception of my Real Estate career, many of my clients are investors looking for tenants as well as investment properties for rent.  Some home owners are simply not ready to sell and want to take advantage of the rental market and needed my help to look for a tenant to help pay their mortgage.

Supply and demand of the rental market is suprisingly different from the residential sales market, and there are some correlation between them due to economic down-turn, political cycle, and global events.

As your dedicated Real Estate Marketing Specialist, I can help you navigate the market and determine when is the best time to buy or sell, and when is a good time for you to find a renter and help you manage in the mean time.
