First stop, Christmas

  • Does everyone know your office hours?
  • What to do and who to contact in case of emergency?
  • Rental payments (owner and tenant)
  • Communicate with people early, let them know the score.

New Year 2014


If you want it, make it happen, this time next year where do you want to be?

Set your goals: Target (what), deadline (when) and plan it (how).

Let’s work it backwards and create a path to get you there, break action items down to small achievable activities.

Below are some ideas of property management related things you might want to get from 2014….

Personal Development

  • Win a property management award
  • Network or association participation
  • Speak on a panel at a conference
  • Next career level
  • …you may need a business growth plan to develop a new position in your company
  • Create better communication levels with clients, tenants and your team

Department Performance

Growth = revenue / number of properties / minimise loss

  • Arrears <3%
  • Vacancy <2%
  • Maintenance > nothing over two months old
  • Inspections = as per your authority
  • Rent reviews = minimum once per year
  • Wow calls = minimum once per year

Let’s make 2014 the year to make it happen, I am certainly happy to talk anyone through creating a plan to get you there.
