We make rental property ownership stress free for the investors, we take care of every aspect of property management with emphasis on tenant selection and thorough property inspections

We operate from home to keep our costs down, we can be contacted on 0800 111 252 or brent@bnproperties.co.nz

How did you get into the Property Management industry?
Firstly by investing in properties ourselves, then we started managing other people’s properties, it grew from there

What is one piece of advice for business owners in your industry? Can you share any lessons learnt from business struggles or challenges that you’ve overcome?
Don’t be convinced to sell if things are not going as well as expected, tenant problems or maintenance issues can be resolved, you don’t want to be that investor that looks back 10 years later and says “I wish I didn’t sell that property” (when the value has doubled). Either educate yourself well to manage your own property or employ an independent property manager. Independent property managers have no ulterior motive, they don’t want to sell your property.

What accounting system (if any) were you using before moving to Xero? How did that compare to Xero?
MYOB. Xero is a superior product, easier to use, more functions.

Why did you choose our Sidekick service for your business?
Ric made me! Plus our old accountant wasn’t up to much.

We hope that with Sidekick on board taking care of your accounts, you have found more time to do the things you really enjoy. So what is it that you love to do with your spare time?
Boating and fishing.

Do you have any deals that you’d like to share?
Sign with us before the end of October and pay no advertising costs for the first 12 months.
