  • Wanted: Great Property Manager in East Anglia?

    Hi Guys,

    I'm looking for a great Property manager somewhere in East Anglia. At present we have a local Real Estate company, "playing" at Property Management, and not doing a good job at all.

    If anyone can recommend a great PM around the Norfolk/Suffolk border (or someone effectively able to manage a property in that area), I'd be very grateful to hear from you!

    Thanks,
    SG

    CRITICAL:

    Hi Guys,

    I really REALLY need some info on this, the time to change our Property Manager or continue with the current one (a joke) is looming.
    If ANYONE has comments, or contact details etc regarding this matter, please either PM me or respond to this post ASAP.

    Many thanks in advance.

      I would like to help unfortunately suffolk norfolk area is out of our reach. However if your portfolio ever extends to Essex, then I can certainly recommend Ray Johnston (letting's Director) @ homesellers, who is highly qualified (one of the first to sit ARLA level 1 and level 2 examinations) and has extensive experience, gained over a long career specialising in lettings and property management at senior/area management level.

        Hey thanks for the reply, was beginning to think all the Property Investors in the UK were away on holiday (lol)!

        Essex isn't too far, maybe Ray has contacts in the Norfolk/Suffolk region?

        I'll drop him an email later today.
        Thanks again for the contact.

        Have a great weekend!

        Cheers,
        Steve

          Hi again guys,

          Just wondering if anyone has experience of a Property Management (& Real Estate Sales) company in Suffolk - Martin & Co of Angel Hill, Bury St. Edmunds?

          I received a very timely and courteous response from the Director of the Company - Linda Leong-Son, and have in front of me a comprehensive "Terms of Business" form, which looks very professional. But there's nothing like word of mouth recommendations - hence this response to my original post.

          Any help/comments here would be greatly appreciated, as the time is getting near to act.

          Thanks in advance.

            Often the problem with agencies is low paid, untrained staff with too many properties to manage. Correspondence and phones don't get answered. I know, I've been there!

            I am a great property manager, trained, ARLA registered and have a building surveying degree so know a fair bit about buildings, faults etc.

            For several years I was the head of property management for a London lettings agency but not all bosses work in line with my values which is client's best interest and they often want to cream off a bit from the contractors and add a bit to a bill here and there - always recommending and instructing contractors they have a personal interest in (often undeclared) even if they are not the best or cheapest. So I left and now manage properties the way I believe it should be done - honestly, fairly and with full communication to both my clients and tenants. In the year I've been working for myself I have taken properties on from other agents and turned situations around. I can also provide references from both clients and tenants.

            I realise this is an old post but if you've still not found a good property manager I am based in East London/Essex border and happy to manage a portfolio in Suffolk/Norfolk as I'm often in that neck of the woods on business and personally.

            Feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss this further and I'll give you my contact details or call/email you at your convenience to arrange a meeting.

            Best wishes.

              if the staffs are untrained how are they able to manage property? or are you talking about the staffs who are responsible for attending phone calls or e-mails ?
