I'm looking for a new property manager in MIlton QLD area for my unit. Can anyone offer any good suggestions??
My current manager has left the property vacant for over 8 weeks with zero feedback and avoids my calls (always out of the office, on leave or gone home – at 1pm)
You would think property managers would have more respect for their clients, I mean seriously !ducksterParticipant@ducksterJoin Date: 2004Post Count: 1,674
It happens . I walked over to another property manager/ real estate agent and asked them to take over the rental when it happened to me. Then the bad manager's real estate office owner calls me to ask why I did not call them which I replied I called on several occasions and was promised a call back which never occurred.
An agent that manages a large portfolio of rentals has it is in their interest to look after rental owners rather than a real estate agent that does some rentals and relies more on sellers and buyers for their lively hood. This is how I found my excellent real estate property manager.vagirl2012Participant@vagirl2012Join Date: 2012Post Count: 47
Yep unfortunately it happens all the time. Best to find yourself a dedicated property manager as opposed to a real estate agent (which is what you're trying to do obviously).RedwoodParticipant@redwoodJoin Date: 2013Post Count: 340GizzyParticipant@gizzyJoin Date: 2013Post Count: 26
Hi everyone as I am just learning could someone please explain the difference between a real estate agent that should be managing your property and a Property Manager . Should they not being doing the same job ??Jamie MooreParticipant@jamie-mJoin Date: 2010Post Count: 5,069
A real estate agent sells property. A property manager looks after your rental. So they're two different roles.
However, a lot of real estate agencies have divisions devoted to property management.

Whether you are an (sales) agent or a property manager, the licensing requirements are exactly the same.Colin RiceParticipant@fmsJoin Date: 2011Post Count: 338GizzyParticipant@gizzyJoin Date: 2013Post Count: 26
Thank you ,
That's what I thought the property Manager works at the real estate agents … I have heard you can get bad ones …

Having been in real estate for 20 years it is the reason i employ my own personal Property Manager rather use a property agents employed by a real estate agent.
In saying that haven't heard wrong with Run so give Scott's parents a go.
