I just had another agent from another company give me the biggest compliment I’ve ever received in real estate. He told his client that the reason he’d want to do business with me and my company, Ad Astra Realty, is that we have integrity. Not that we’re perfect or the cheapest or the best or whatever. But that we have integrity.
I think integrity matters in property management. In real estate. In everything you do.
Do your words match your work?
Ethics and integrity get thrown around and out the door pretty quickly now days and in business. It seems everyone has a set of core values, until their pocket book may be in jeopardy.
I’d like to say that business owners with integrity are out there. Larry Kueser, the Operating Principal over at Keller Williams Realty, Diamond Partners, Inc. is one. And I could continue and name others. But I could also go down a much longer list of individuals and businesses that seem to forget integrity when the chips are down.
Sometimes having integrity means just saying “I’m sorry.” Sometimes it means being patient. Sometimes it means spending the money to make something right.
Now, having integrity doesn’t mean you have to be wronged. It doesn’t mean you are always wrong. But in your soul, you know the right thing to do. Do you have the guts to do it?
I have a confession to make. (No, this is not a lead in to a Foo Fighters song.) Somewhere last week and this week I have failed miserably in the communication to an owner of seven properties we manage. I thought I was being clear. But based on what I’m hearing from one of our staff and the nature of the client’s questions, I know I’ve failed.
But here is the message: You have to occasionally spend money on your rental properties.
We want our investment owners to make as much money as possible on their income properties. But after you’ve owned property for a number of years things need updating, bushes and trees need trimming, items that slowly fall in to disrepair need repairing.
This doesn’t have to happen all at once. But if you want the full value of your rental property on down the line in terms of maximum rents and resale value, it’s is a must.
I just need to start all over again with this owner and be sure I have communicated completely this need. But ultimately it’s the owner’s money and the owner’s decision.

Good criteria is the most important aspect of real estate investing. At least that is what the last thirteen years of working with real estate investors helping to buy, sell and manage income property has taught me. What is your criteria when it comes to investment property?
I have written about how important good criteria is for your rental properties before. Here are just a few of the posts for you to go back and read. Heck, the dates are from years ago but the philosophy has not changed at all.
What is Your Criteria For A Good Investment Property?
Real Estate Investment Property Criteria
Set Criteria For Your Real Estate Investments
Identifying the returns you would like to make in real estate investing is very, very important. But so is knowing what property you are looking for to make that happen. And what if your criteria and your return goals don’t match up? Well, then you can move on to another investment vehicle that will better suit you than real estate or you can counsel to find out what is actually realistic when considering income property as a vehicle to get you to that retirement worth having.
