    Hi Everyone
    I'm on the lookout for a new pm in Orange.
    For the last 5 years I have had the same company managing a place in East Orange.

    I had very few problems for the first 4 years, rent was payed on time, maintenance was carried out promptly when required. Occasionally rental payments were late and the pm seemed to give the tenants a little too much leeway compared to a pm in a capital city. I have found pms in regional NSW to be laid back chasing arrears, maybe thats just my experience.

    Last year I had a new pm in the agency take over my property there, since Christmas the tenants have started to slip further and further behind. I have complained about lack of communication to the pm who wants to tread too lightly with the tenants who have started missing payments.

    Anyway, enough about that, I'm hoping someone can recommend a decent pm in Orange. I'm fairly easy going and generally don't change pms but I feel that the lack of follow up and poor communication requires a change.
    I would rather not mention the name of this agency, but if anyone wants to know who I wouldn't recommend then message me.
    Thanks.

    Any recommendations for Orange please?
    I know that there are a few members with properties there.

    I know there was a mega thread about one well known property guru who has ventured into property management and managed properties remotely with dubious results.

    Haven't used them myself but the recommended guy in the national PM group I'm part of is Scott Quirk from Century 21.

    (Hope that's not who you're currently using because that'll be awkward :p)

    I use Peter Mitchell and whilst he may be a tad eccentric, he is by far the best PM I have had.

    Have no experience with Scott with rentals but he is fantastic as sales rep.

    I am local in Orange but do not have any IP's there. I have however rented through McCormack Barber and can guarantee that I would not have them manage an IP of mine.
