Meet the Team

Founded in 2015 with a team that has proven and detailed knowledge of the real estate and property management industries, The Property Management Connection (PMC) offers property owners peace of mind while helping them to maximize their real estate investment.

The PMC founding team is experienced and reliable, with knowledge that helps property owners seek the best return on investment by minimizing the time rental units are vacant, recommending improvements that will result in higher rental rates, and advising owners when it’s time to grow, diversify, or liquidate a portfolio of properties. By not just adhering to – but also far exceeding – the codes of conduct and ethics of their industries, the PMC team embodies very high standards of communication, openness, and dependability.
