    Fully agree with you Perry, what a poor website.

    I concur Keys, I just did the same, and yes, I.E works. I have informed them as I am sure they would want to know.

    Cheers

    Default Considerably more to property management than a website.

    Hi, some fair comments about our website. It is currently 'under construction', our property management business is going nicely. Thank goodness you don't need to sit on the computer all day to have an efficient property management business.

    The web designer is working on our website as we speak, it should be running property by Monday.

    In the meantime our landlords are getting their rents collected, their properties inspected at regular intervals, their maintenance kept in check etc

    As to the fourth person we mention on our website, the other Directors wife, we didn't feel it necessary to put her picture on the site. Although she is fully supportive of her husband, she is not currently active in our company.

    Once again thanks for your comments, check out the website on monday.

    Regards

    Interesting that 6%Ltd is promoting a fee structure at 4%.

    Is this viable long term?? Something seems lacking to me. Does not seem enough to cover overheads and wages unless you have an obscene number of properties to manage.

    An obscene number of properties lend themselves to overworked PM's. Maybe the 4% is on properties when they take them over and then goes up to 6% with rent increases? Maybe the 4% is for managements of 5 or more properties? Maybe it needs to be made more clear on the web site?

    Maybe the PM doesn't mind working for $7 an hour either

    Well my goodness I do not have a web site.
    Please forgive me fellow netites.
    I got asked for one last week by a potential new client.
    The first question was what do we charge.
    He gave me his home / potential management address for me to drop the management papers off to.
    There on the gate was a Green door for sale sign.
    PM's are better off without those sort of clients.
    As for the lovely young ladies that are described as being bubbly on company web sites. Well my goodness. It looks like they are trying to sell young ladies for pleasure. What sort of idiot describes the sexual desirability of their staff.

    Default Kiwi's can be so incredibly negative

    I am new to property talk, however certainly not new to property investing and have been reading a few threads with varying interest.

    It would appear that the first reaction some of you have here is to bag people that you know nothing about. Why is that? Could it be you have your own agenda and the only way to feel good about yourself is to put someone else down? It would seem sadly to be a very New Zealand trait, ie tall poppy.

    Should we not encourage people to give it a go, and do their best. In some countries they even ask "what can I do to help".

    Just a thought. I have always taught my children "If you can't be nice, don't be nasty".

    After all it is always uplifting to read something positive.

    I will go see if I can find a positive thread to read.

    You do make some good points there for a first time poster.
    Firstly welcome to the forum.

    Ideas do need to be kicked around in most societies in order to shake out the truth. This is a process that has led to the advancement of knowledge for hundreds of years.
    It started well before internet forums.
    From time to time societies stop this and trust the "establishment" be it the church, government, or various learned establishments like universities, or craft societies.
    These power groups have a vested interest in keeping the status quo.

    The downside of kicking around ideas is sometimes the people with the new ideas are kicked around.
    I think someone who is prepared to stand up and suggest a new idea is well on their way to success and admiration. Certainly from time to time they will be laughed at and scorned but surely that is better than going the way of Byers or dare I suggest even wonderful people like Hubbard.

    With out a doubt you are an intelligent successful person from whom we could all learn at least something. Why not take the risk of sharing some ideas. Otherwise you run the risk of being worse than the very people (posters) that you are suggesting are not being nice.
    Some of the posters (like me) even take the risk of serious public ridicule outside this forum by posting under their own name. You have avoided that risk. Good on you but have a heart for other peoples feelings. Most of us property managers have managed to surpress most feelings but we are still out there in the real world doing what we can to help others.
