Steps to Become a Client with Gordon James Realty

Making the decision to partner with Gordon James Realty for your property management needs is a big step forward. We are committed to making the transition as smooth and swift as possible for you. Here is a simplified guide to help you understand the steps involved in becoming a client with us.

1. Introduction and Overview

During our first telephonic conversation, we'll provide a detailed overview of our property management services. We will also discuss your property goals and address any questions you may have about our partnership.

2. Signing the Management Agreement

Once you're ready to proceed, the next step is to fill out, sign, and submit the management agreement. This document lays the foundation of our working relationship.

3. Setting up the Owner Portal

We will grant you access to our secure online owner portal. Here, you can set up your login details and fill out our new owner questionnaire. This questionnaire helps us gather essential information about your property and service preferences, which is key in delivering our optimal customer service at every stage of our partnership.

4. Portal Introduction and Training

Your dedicated property manager will arrange a call with you to explain the functionalities and features of the online owner portal and answer any questions you might have. The portal acts as a centralized hub for all your property-related information. It provides real-time insights into your property’s financial performance, maintenance requests, and important documents. The secure portal can be accessed from any device with internet connectivity.

5. Conducting Market Analysis

We will prepare a detailed market analysis of properties comparable to yours in the neighborhood. This data-driven analysis will give you a realistic picture of the current rental values in your area.

6. Deciding on the Rental Price

With the insights gained from the market analysis and our extensive industry experience, we will suggest a realistic rental range. This will assist you in deciding on the optimal rent for your property.*

7. Finding the Right Tenant

Once the rental price is decided, our goal is to find a qualified tenant for your property as soon as possible. If your rental price aligns with the market rate, we generally aim to place a qualified tenant within 20 days. If your price is higher, it might take a bit longer, but rest assured, we strive to fill your property as quickly as possible.

8. Property Advertising

Upon your request, Gordon James will take on the responsibility of advertising your property. To learn more about this, please refer to our Marketing and Leasing services section.

Choosing to trust us with your property management needs is a choice we don't take lightly. From our first introduction to marketing your property, our dedicated team works diligently to ensure your investment thrives. We streamline the process for you and keep you informed every step of the way. Trust Gordon James Realty to turn your property goals into reality.
