The Ray White group in New Zealand are one of the largest managers of property for landlords in the country with over 12,300 properties managed throughout the group we are proud of our continued development of our property management team.
As part of our ongoing qualitative based training our property management team came together in Auckland at Cornwall Park just on 80 managers attending. The day seminar which looked at a number of key areas in property management which included service levels to landlords and tenants, how to management relationships, and also understanding the balance between the requirements of our landlords and the needs of our tenants.
In addition to this, our team looked at marketing to ensure the continued low vacancy rates of our landlords. We looked at the integration of internet advertising and Ray White’s association with Trade Me and how that has continued to increase enquiry rates for our landlords. Our service also continues to broaden with our property managers providing wealth creation plans together with property appraisals and loan assessments. This provides to our landlords an overall service level that is unmatched in the industry. Ray White New Zealand offices have experienced continued growth in the property management division and this has been put down to the continued training and development while providing the highest quality service.
With property management now not being regulated it is seen to be more important for landlords who they choose to manage their property and also their rental income. Ray White are developing policies which will provide security within an integrated system through our agency practice. The Ray White group plans to release these details over the next quarter which will provide further confidence for our current landlords while providing a clear choice option for new landlords.
