Property specialists Karen Edwards and Shaun Thompson recently set up Stake Property Rentals.
This Auckland based property management business is not really so new though as both Karen and Shaun have been managing rental property for years.
Stake Property’s other property businesses (homes for sale and property renovations) bring Shaun and Karen into contact with property owners looking for rental management services on a daily basis.
After some deliberation and much persuasion from some very persistent owners, Stake Property Rentals incorporated and took on what is now a very stable and growing client base.
Shaun says property management as a sector that has matured over the years in New Zealand. Improved transparency, accountability and online ‘cloud based’ systems have transformed the industry and property owners now have more access to information and with it more control – which is just what property owners want.
Stake Property Rentals have done their homework too. Their fixed rate monthly fee is not only attractive it’s realistic too and just like fixing mortgage rates – fixing property management fees has come as a big relief to the property owners who now have their properties managed by Stake Property Rentals.
Property owners are mostly delighted in the knowledge that their rental income can increase without the property management fees also increasing and we’re really happy with that says Co owner, Karen Edwards. We’ve been in the property business for a very long time so we really do understand the needs of property owners and we continue to work very hard to provide the same service we expect for our own rentals!
