Changing Faces – Bayleys Property Management in the North

Local business Ignite Property NZ Ltd has been fully taken over by Bayleys in the North (Mackys Real Estate Ltd) and nobody could be happier about the arrangement than Ignite founder Julie Beaumont.

Julie says coming under the Bayleys umbrella means Ignite now has access to all Bayleys resources.

It also means the company has been able to expand its residential property services beyond Warkworth and Wellsford. It now services properties from Puhoi in the south to Ruakaka in the north.

Meanwhile, Julie continues as a property manager with the company along with fellow managers Shona Mackinnon and Joelene MacGillivray.

Between them, the trio have more than 30 years’ property management experience and provide a full range of property management services.

This includes advising landlords on market rents, changes to legislation, sourcing tenants, drafting up tenancy agreements and managing property maintenance.

The trio pride themselves on proactive property maintenance, utilising a preferred list of reliable tradies and suppliers and securing favourable rates for their clients.

Although many other companies no longer offer casual letting services, Bayleys Property Management in the North continues to handle casual letting, meaning the team will find and sign up new tenants, leaving ongoing property management to the landlord.

Changes to legislation in respect of tenancies has meant having experienced property managers keeping abreast of developments has never been more critical.

The team can advise landlords on all their rights and responsibilities regarding such things as health and safety and the correct processes to follow to end a tenancy.

If necessary, the team represents landlords in court should disputes arise. However, Julie is pleased to say this seldom happens as the team conducts thorough screening to identify and filter out unsuitable tenants from the outset.
