Co-Managers plus Assistant
The average portfolio size for two managers in the industry is approximately 28 properties which allows for less than our hour of management time spent per property per week.
Less than four hours per week to solicit bids, handle phone calls, handle collections, handle correspondence, process bills, update directories, file, meet with contractors, prepare specifications, prepare management reports, etc..., therefore site inspections are often neglected.
With Sharper Image Management Consultants, Inc. co-management philosophy, two managers and their assistant will share a portfolio, allowing for additional time spent on your property. This is of utmost importance in that it allows for no delays in day-to-day business transactions, return of telephone calls and accessibility due to your manager being on-site or on vacation.
With co-managers you will no longer experience delays in response to your questions regarding financial status, legal status, account status, and other pertinent information you may need answered concerning your property. In addition, a manager with extensive working knowledge of your property will be on call 24 hours a day for emergencies.
