It is no secret that the market is awash with people claiming to be in the business of property management.
Unfortunately, your expectations and the service delivered can be disturbingly different. And worse, you often don’t know that what you have been promised will not be delivered until you have employed the services of that property manager. As part of the Snappr ethos of integrity, professionalism and exemplary standards of service, we provide a service guarantee and suggest you ask the following questions of a prospective property manager before signing on the dotted line.
If at the end of the exercise, the answers are less than satisfactory, particularly when compared to the service of Homesure, we have made the process of changing your business easy and stress free.
