James Viglione

After hearing years of tenant horror stories from his Mom regarding managing her rental properties, Jim decided to get into the property management business in 2007 with the simple goal of helping his poor Mom. His primary goal at the time was to alleviate the stress that managing her rental properties had put upon her. However, after looking at the management of rental real estate as a business, Jim decided there needed to be three areas of focus:

 

         1. Find and retain the best tenants possible.
         2. Maximize income.         
         3. Maximize value of the underlying asset.


Jim found by making small upgrades to the properties, he was able to attract a better class of tenant that was willing to pay more in rent, AND stay in the property longer! In addition to helping maximize current rental income of the properties, it also increased the value of the property. This has been his strategy ever since. Thanks Mom!
