To manage rental properties, California statutes require the management company to be a licensed real estate brokerage. Although we are licensed, and very qualified to assist buyers and sellers, we DO NOT perform real estate sales services. Our expertise is property management and we would rather be great at one thing than average at lots of things.
Consider us a partner in your real estate investment strategy. By focusing on our core competency and not benefitting from the sale’s commission, we can provide an objective opinion about the opportunity.
In California, an applicant only has to study for 135 hours and pass a 150 question exam to qualify as a real estate agent. After passing the California Real Estate exam, an agent is licensed to sell a 1-bedroom condo, a million-dollar mansion or even a retail shopping center. A real estate license is no indicator of an agent’s skill or expertise.
Who do you want to trust your investment strategy with? We maintain relationships with exceptional local agents, all equipped with the knowledge, experience and skill set required to perform in the real estate investment market.
Our partnering agents offer value to buyers and sellers above that of a realtor involved in the general sales market. To attain ‘Preferred Real Estate Agent’ status at American Stages Realty & Management agents need to demonstrate through knowledge, qualifications and real-life experiences, that they understand the long goals of the real estate investor.
Our mission is to help clients generate wealth through real estate ownership and investment. Whether your investment plan be single family rentals or multi-family rentals we can assist you.
Our team lives in the real estate investment world and we are ideally placed to guide our clients through the minefields. You can be sure the advice you are receiving is unbiased and not tarnished with the scent of a sales commission.
Already working with a realtor. Already have a property in mind?
All too often, investors find us after they have bought their investment property only to be disappointed when we complete our rental assessment. Mistakes can be very expensive. You can’t hand the property back if it doesn’t perform. Save yourself the financial and emotional pain of real estate errors and talk to us before you buy. We want to be your real estate investment partner and we can offer an expert independent opinion.
Take independent and objective advice from the team that will be managing your property long term. Not just the agent, new home salesperson or seller that will reap immediate benefit from the sale.
Knowledge is power and as a result we encourage real estate investors to learn as much about the real estate investment and Property Management industries as possible.
We recommend adding the following books to your resource library.
HOLD: How to Find, Buy, and Rent Houses for Wealth, by Steve Chader, Jennice Doty, Jim McKissack, Linda McKissack and Jay Papasan.
The Millionaire Real Estate Investor, by Gary Keller.
The Book on Rental Property Investing, by Brandon Turner.
