Why Relationship Management is Crucial | Alhambra Property Management - Article Banner

Property management in Alhambra is a relationship business, just like it is anywhere else. 

We work hard to establish and maintain respectful, positive relationships with our owners, tenants, vendors, and anyone in the community we work with to provide a higher standard of real estate expertise and property management help. 

Let’s talk about why relationship management is so crucial when we’re leasing, managing, and maintaining a home for investors and owners like you.

Owner Relationships: Working Towards the Same Alhambra Investment Goals

Managing our relationships with the owners who trust us with their investment properties is a huge priority. Here’s why we need a solid relationship:

  • We need to understand your investment goals in order to help you achieve them.
  • We need to know what you expect, and how you like to be communicated with.
  • We work together on protecting the condition and value of your property, which leads to better recurring cash flow and long-term Return on Investment (ROI).

When we first begin working together, we’ll spend some time discussing expectations and the scope of work we provide. While logistical activities like marketing strategies, rental values, tenant screening, and preventative maintenance are important, we also want to talk about what you’re hoping to accomplish with your rental properties. Are you satisfied renting out one or two homes or are you trying to grow a portfolio? 

A good relationship reflects our understanding of your investment goals and our commitment to them.

Alhambra Tenant Relationships: Happy Tenants Lead to Happy Owners

We also invest time, resources, and energy into tenant relationships. That’s because when a tenant is happy with the service they’re receiving and the home they’re living in, you can expect them to pay their rent on time. You can also expect them to take care of the property and follow the terms of the lease agreement. 

Our tenant relationships increase retention. That’s a huge benefit to your bottom line because better tenant retention reduces your vacancy and your turnover costs. We provide excellent customer service. We are accessible when tenants need help. We’re responsive when it comes to maintenance. 

Tenants are customers. They’re paying rent and contributing to the care of your investment property. Managing those relationships is more than creating a harmonious rental experience; it’s earning more money for you and providing a pleasant and habitable home for them.

Vendor Relationships Benefit Owners and Tenants 

Vendor RelationshipFinding good vendors is not always easy. 

We have a list of preferred vendors and contractors we use to do most of the work we need at the rental properties we manage. Because we provide such a consistent volume of work, we’re able to negotiate the best rates for our owners. We’re also able to stay at the top of their priority lists when we need an emergency repair or a quick fix. This keeps tenants happy. 

We appreciate our vendors, and they provide us with high-quality work at affordable prices. That’s a huge advantage, especially now, when maintenance and repairs are growing more expensive and labor is sometimes hard to find.
