    I interviewed defreitas Ryan for my Perth property. Being a pm myself, I knew how to judge their responses and it was my view that they were clueless.

    The one I went with doesn't serve Rockingham though I'm sorry.

    I reckon that would be the case with most PM's across the country.
    Over the past 20 odd years I've only meet one PM I'd consider genuinely interested/motivated, enjoyed her job as if it were her own business, even though she witnessed agents making allot more coin than her.

    My ex is a beauty therapist, had a home based salon for ~15yrs, a commercial salon before we had kids, naturally had allot of PM's (& agents) as clients, if available I'd make coffee's, have a chat while doing admin, tidy up etc.

    All would obviously discuss work, what a crap job it is, some of the filthy houses they have to go in, attitudes they have to deal with from tenants, landlords, agents, principles, paper work/admin etc etc.

    Pretty difficult to be motivated when your not happy/satisfied with what your doing, BUT it fits in with school hours (kids) and better than locked up in Coles etc all day without windows. All they have to do is enough to keep under the radar form the boss, the boss is happy if they turn up and do what he/she doesn't want to do.

    IMO it would be like being a cop but only work Mon to Fri.

    I think that's a bit harsh. In every profession in every industry there are great, good, average and terrible participants.

    Absolutely, won't disagree with that.

    I did say "most" not All, and obviously only the many I've come across.

    Hi D.T - just wondering which property manager you ended up using? I'm looking for one around the north city area. I have used DFR down in Mandurah - not too bad. Get what you pay for I guess, like everything.

    I end up using Paddington but they only service north east suburbs - Guildford, Ellenbrook, Forrestfield, Banksia Grove, etc.

    Letho AKA Lethbridge Park is a suburb five km northly of Mt Druitt train station. From the bus interchange take bus number 759. Just remember to duck occasionally to avoid being hit by flying rocks along Bouganville Rd. You will learn the lingo by the time you arrive at Letho (only one and two syllables max).
