With over 40 years combined property management experience and some of our team owning investment property themselves we have what it takes to get the job done right. We are big enough to get everything done even when staff goes on vacation or during unplanned emergencies but not so big that our property investors get lost in the shuffle. As Goldilocks said…just right. Here is a little bit about what each one of us does for you.
An investment property owner himself Sean was not thrilled with the experiences he had using other property managers. In 2013 after 13 years in the high tech industry and with the encouragement of family and friends he made the jump to entrepreneurship which can be stressful but Sean is very calm with an easy going manner which keeps everyone happy and going the right direction. As the company has grown Sean has done a great job of bringing in the best talent in the area to help. Sean is married with three girls who love school, soccer and dance, is a 21 year veteran of the Oregon Army National Guard and in his free time enjoys sailing, biking, motorcycling, exploring the outdoors and travelling the world.
General Manager/Bookkeeper. I work in the office full time answering questions, phones, emails and I interact with Owners & Tenants directly whether paying rents & security deposits or just needing assistance. I started as the bookkeeper with the company in October of 2013 and have expanded my horizons ever since. Over the years I added keeping a helpful eye on Maintenance, Leasing and anything else needing it. I am married with 2 boys that have been lucky enough to find their other halves and married them. One couple lives in Alaska and one lives locally. I have 3 god-children, married with children to ease my gramma needs. And I have hosted almost a dozen FES or foreign exchange students of high school age from around the world. I have been very blessed to visit many of them in their home countries, this has given me a much widened view of the world we live in and an intense desire to travel more. I love to cross-stitch, read, travel, entertain and have always loved diversity and learning. Boredom is the enemy! My background has been varied… The Health Insurance industry, a Small Business Owner for Home Decor and a coordinator for a Foreign Exchange Student Organization, and I am a Licensed Contractor and run a Construction company with my hubby.
Our Leasing Manager has been with us for many years and knows the rental market well. She is the expert when it comes to setting the correct price for vacant units to get them rented profitably and fast as well as assessing rent prices at renewal time. With a great team to back her up she is able to get properties listed quickly and accurately on the over 30 websites that we advertise on. Recently married she lives locally with her husband who is an engineer at Intel, enjoys traveling internationally and loves Yoga.
Born and raised in Beaverton Anna knows the area like the back of her hand which helps her manage maintenance scheduling as well as owner and property onboarding. Wearing her maintenance manager hat she handles owner and tenant maintenance requests, annual property inspections, scheduling our handyman, and working with vendors. She will tell you that her most important trait is patience which comes in very handy when coordinating tenant, owner and vendor schedules to get a problem fixed. When doing owner and property onboarding there is a ton of paperwork and information needed and Anna gets it done. We are happy to have Anna on our team and you will enjoy working with her. She is also bilingual english/spanish.
Also born and raised locally (because she is Anna’s sister) Rental Leasing Assistant handles all potential tenant inquiries, schedules showings and processes applications so we can fill vacant properties quickly. Theresa is very detail oriented which comes in handy when getting every ‘i’ dotted and every ‘t’ crossed on rental applications. With a strong background in the insurance and management field she is sure to know that customer service comes first and gets to all owners and tenants in a timely manner. She will make sure that owners are up to date on every aspect of their property and ensure that tenants love their new home. Very organized and bilingual in English and Spanish which is a plus! Her weakness: chocolate!
Reliable, on time, and hardworking our handyman enjoys keeping our managed properties in top shape on the first visit. If you ask him he will tell you he loves this job and that it is very fun. Originally from California he moved up here to be closer to family including his 5 sisters. Recently he has started doing our property inspections and is very thorough looking for anything that needs fixing now before it gets more expensive later saving our property owners expensive repairs.
