We can Help Manage Your Great Northwest Rental Property
It would be a pleasure to work with you on any of the Property Management programs our company provides. The following should answer some of your questions about the Property Management department and myself.
Carol Fochler, Broker, REALTOR
In 1973 I obtained an Accounting Degree from State University Of New York. In 1980 I obtained my Real Estate License, and in 1984 my Brokers license. I have been managing residential properties since 1982 and have managed as many as 200 single family residential homes, duplexes, and town homes in the Great Northwest area at any given time. I currently manage over 160 homes.
My accounting background gives me the knowledge to handle the large number of rents, deposits, and repair costs involved with the large number of units I manage. I believe my vast experience will be very valuable to you in your leasing and management needs. I have consistently maintained a 97-98 percent occupancy rate. This rate is maintained with thorough tenant screening, keeping rental units occupied and vacant units in good repair, and responding immediately to repair calls, and above all, treating all parties fairly.
Both owners and tenants work directly with me which provides one on one contact for higher quality results. By keeping rental units well-maintained, vacancy time is kept to a minimum and rental rates at a maximum. Our tenant screening has proven very valuable by increasing continued rents and lease renewals, and decreasing slow payments, evictions, and damages, thus adding up to higher profits for owners.

Owners receive a monthly statement with a total accounting of all transactions on the property since the last statement.

Statements contain updated information to the owners about the property and all receipts for repairs.
Drive-by inspections are performed monthly with pictures taken three times a year. Interior inspections are performed when deemed necessary due to complaints or unsatisfactory drive-bys. If negative reports come in from repair contractors tenants are notified immediately concerning items they have neglected to maintain. Owners are notified of normal maintenance and upkeep from drive-by inspections.
Tenants report necessary repairs. Repairs, normal upkeep and maintenance work are ordered and billed to brass ring properties. Upon receipt of an invoice, it is paid by brass ring and then charged to either the owner or tenant depending on the cause of the repair. Any uncollectable tenant charge is the responsibility of the owner.
