#1 Property Manager & Team Overall, to end March 2020
#1 Property Manager & Team, North Shore Region, to end March 2020
I am the Senior Portfolio Manager at Barfoot & Thompson Glenfield. It’s a position that benefits from my years of experience in the real estate industry. My being awarded the role acknowledges the crucial part I play in managing our key investor relationships.
My focus is to add value and maximise returns for our clients. As a long-term property investor myself, I understand the importance of putting the landlord first. I see myself as the custodian of your property and also the manager of your investment. Does your current rental manager understand this distinction?
I leverage my natural business acumen to drive rental yields and mitigate investment risks. I am an expert at correctly marketing your property to attract quality tenants in the shortest possible time. Also, I am well-versed in the many compliance challenges faced by landlords today. I make sure that I keep myself abreast of the ever-changing legal requirements.
I graduated from the University of Auckland with a Bachelor of Commerce. This shines through in my professional communication style and attention to detail. Fluent in both English and Chinese, I have a deep cross-cultural understanding which has proven invaluable in both the relationship-building and dispute-resolution aspects of this job.
My approach to business is customer-centric. I have a real passion for helping my clients and friends achieve their dream of building sustainable rental portfolios. I leverage my extensive network of investors, real estate salespeople and connections in the insurance and banking industries.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank your Property Manager Ethan Zhao, for the excellent service he provided while dealing with my rental property. I found him energetic, knowledgeable and commercially savvy which all added great value to managing the rental business. He always responded to my various inquiries promptly with patience. His attention to detail also gave me confidence that nothing will be left unattended.
During the two weeks of open homes leading to finally signing up the new tenants, he always kept me well-informed. His openness and exceptional communication skills also made the whole process very easy and pleasant to handle.
I wish him and your business all the best and many successful years ahead working together.
Many thanksMichelle Wang
Ethan Zhao has really amazed us as a property manager. He is very passionate about his job, and always willing to go the extra mile to do things right. He found us good tenants within only couple of days, and has been doing great management work since then. He has made it a completely worry-free property for us. Great job Ethan, really appreciate your work!Debra Du
To whom it may concern
My wife and had recently bought a property and needed it be leased. Our salesperson Eugene Yamamoto introduced Ethan Zhao to help us on finding tenant. Ethan has been very professional and always responded promptly. He gave us many useful tips on how to best advertise our property and educated us a lot about picking tenants and helped us filtering applicants to our requirement and protected our interests. At the same time he was always a neutral position between landlord and tenant. Our property is now leased and it is within week after Ethan listed it online. The work ethic and efficiency of Ethan is exceptional and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to lease property.
