Property Management Christchurch

Why Choose Real Gold for Real Estate Property Management?

Our philosophy is to look after your property as if it is our own as we are property investors ourselves. We are 100% dedicated to property management and leasing, providing you a more personal service compared to using large property management companies.

  • Rental Property Management in Christchurch and Canterbury.
  • Marketing your property - listing on Real Gold and TradeMe, install "For Rent" signs outside the property, conduct unlimited viewings to prospective tenants until your property is rented.
  • Tenant Selection - screening prospective tenants, credit and reference checks. A good tenant must be able to pay the rent on-time, every time and keep your property in good condition. Prospective tenants must supply all information requested on our Application Form, including references and photo identification. Tenants are selected if the information supplied meet our criteria. We then pass the information to you for your final approval.
  • Preparation of tenancy agreements and lodging bonds to protect you in the future.
  • Offer fixed and periodic term tenancies.
  • Payments - rental payments are credited to an owner's bank account once or twice a month.
  • Property Maintenance - arranging repairs, maintenance and property care.
  • Inspections - We take photographs of your property, at the beginning of and at the end of each tenancy to record the condition of the property.
  • Conduct quarterly, or every two months, routine detailed inspections, and on request by owner, to ensure issues are identified before they become an expensive problem.
  • Rent Collection and Arrears Management - collect rent from tenants, dealing with all aspects of bond collection, control and disbursement as required by law with ZERO-Tolerance Rent Arrears Policy. We make this policy known to all prospective tenants and contact tenants immediately when rent is not received.
  • Serve notices to tenants.
  • Dispute resolution by mediation & tribunal applications on your behalf.

We are passionate about personalised customer service and real estate management services. Our property managers are reachable 7 days a week via phone and email.

We will strive to ensure less stress, greater occupancy, quality tenants and ultimately greater returns for your investment.
