As the end of the year rolls around there are a multitude of tasks that need to be completed by property managers and property owners alike. The new year brings around many new challenges, but also evaluation of challenges from the previous year. This means that it may be time to take a look at the quality of your current property management providers, whether it be one vendor or multiple. From your landscape, to your parking lot sweeping, you may not be satisfied with the quality of work from the past year. We often hear about many of the struggles faced by our clients with previous property management firms, so we have a pretty good idea of what to look for. As you make your selection of a property management company this year, there are a few things to consider.
Full Service: All In One
One thing you do not want to deal with as a property manager, is multiple vendors providing different services your property requires. It is much more efficient and convenient to work with a property management company that provides all relevant services, so you can foster a long-term relationship. This also streamlines your workload, as finding one reliable company is much easier than dealing with the scheduling and flow of multiple. Tying into other qualities we find to be beneficial, a more experienced, larger property management company is typically going to have the ability to offer a larger palette of services, with a higher quality of work.
Licenses and Certifications
Amid the difficulties across the economy due to inflation, labor shortages have made it a struggle for many landscaping companies to provide experienced employees to their clients. One thing we prioritize at Alexander’s is to ensure that our employees are trained and certified in their respective fields. When your provider possesses proper certifications, you can be confident that work will be done up to industry standards. Our certifications at Alexander’s include ISA certified arborists, certified pest control operators, and certifications in best management practices (BMP). These are only a few of the many licenses and certifications we possess at Alexander’s, so do not settle for less.
Consistent and Reliable Communication
Across the landscape industry, and likely the service industry as a whole, communication is the number one issue faced by customers. If you are going to be working with a company that is supposed to be “managing your property”, they should be assigning an account manager to your property, readily available to answer questions and deal with issues that may arise. It is vital that the date and times of services be provided, and that those services be reliable and on time. Discuss this specifically with your potential property management company, and ensure that it will not be a problem. One thing can be certain though, this will not be a problem when you work with Alexander’s, as we prioritize customer communication above all else.
