Whether it’s your child, your pet, or your home you are handing over, trust and experience is a must.

So, when it comes to looking for a property manager for your rental property you need to ask the right questions.

For longtime landlord Kris Halpin building communication, rapport and market knowledge is what she looks for with her properties in Armidale.

“You can take your business elsewhere for a cheaper agent who takes a smaller commission, but that won’t always save you in the long run.” said Kris.

“There are good tenants and bad tenants, and we have seen them all, but its about how it is handled and who can help save you a lot of stress.”

And honesty is the best policy when it comes to winning over a landlord.

“I am all for second chances, or first chances for some.” said Kris.

“If you don’t’ have a rental history, tell me your story.”

“The more I know, the more I can relate to you, and I want to help you out.”

For those considering investing the New England property market, a realistic approach will see a successful finish.

“You’ve got to understand that it’s not all a bit of roses, but when you’re a landlord, you’ve got a goal, and that goal is usually to have a bit of financial freedom at some point, and you will get there.” said Kris.

“You have to have compassion and you need to find a good agent.”

Kris chose to lease her property with The Professionals in Armidale because they ticked all her boxes in a property manager.

“You want to get all the bells and whistles,” said Jamie Williams, Director of The Professionals Real Estate Armidale.

“From there, after you have chosen you have them out to the property and discuss your pricing, where you think the property is going to sit in the market, and then you discuss the market and strategies and timelines and book the photos.” 

“You will want to understand the processes that the agency has in place to manage each lifecycle of the tenet or throughout the life cycle of the lease as a whole.”

Professionals Real Estate Armidale holds a highly regarded reputation in the New England and boasts over 100 years collectively of property management experience.

In the revolving door of the industry, staff retention is one of their team’s greatest strengths when delivering for their community.

“Last time I had a looked about 95% of new property managers in the industry don’t last 12 months.” said Jamie.

“One of our property managers has been with us for 24 years and we’ve got another one that’s been with us for 11 years.”

“So, the staff turnover I think is a big strength for Professionals because we’ve got the same faces here and we know what we are doing.”
