REINZ Property Management Accreditation

Landlords, who have properties managed by Barfoot & Thompson now benefit from an added sense of security after the real estate agency recently received REINZ Property Management accreditation.

Samantha Arnold, General Manager of Barfoot & Thompson Property Management says, “With the property management industry being largely unregulated, we saw a need for a comprehensive training programme such as ELEVATE to educate our property management staff on industry best practices when managing rental properties. 

Arnold continues, “This will be a win-win not only for property owners but also tenants who interact with property managers. Property managers on the ELEVATE programme receive training on general troubleshooting, proactive maintenance, vetting prospective tenants, healthy homes standards, dispute resolution and much more.’

Kiri Barfoot, Director, says “Barfoot & Thompson is committed to setting the highest standards for their Property Management division. We seek and hire only the best of the best to work in this department and then proceed to train them appropriately. As our property management portfolio grows it is becoming increasingly important to communicate the company’s unique approach to prospective new clients.” 

Bindi Norwell, REINZ CEO says, “With more and more people renting for longer periods of time, seeking REINZ Property Management accreditation provides a point of difference for Barfoot & Thompson. We applaud their efforts in this space.”
