In this episode, Kyle shares what advantage having asset management has over just entrusting your asset portfolio fully to property management. How the need to trust is one thing, and verifying it is something else you need to do with your property management, so you work closely with it, thereby making sure systems are in place to make things as efficient as possible.

Key Takeaways: 

“A lot of general partners out there will buy the property and not pay too much attention to the property. And the more you pay attention, the faster you can get things done, the more efficient you are, and the more money you can make and drive that ROI.” – Kyle Mitchell 

“A lot of people say, oh, golf compared to real estate, there’s no correlation there. And I always disagree with people, there’s always something you can take from your past experience and translate it into real estate or whatever you’re going to do in the future.” – Kyle Mitchell 

“You’re buying multimillion-dollar businesses here, and multifamily is a business. And if you’re buying a business, you should have someone in charge of managing it. Whether it’s an operations manager, or yourself, or an asset manager, you need someone keeping an eye on the business.” – Kyle Mitchell 

“If you have a single-family home, are you going to asset management? Probably not, but in multifamily five-plus units, there’s definitely ways that a good asset manager can make that property much more profitable than someone that doesn’t know what they’re doing.” – Kyle Mitchell 

“You don’t have to be a professional asset manager or have a huge background in management operations to do well. It’s about peeling back the onion, a layer deeper, asking questions, instead of just trusting your property management company with everything that they say. You’ve always got to trust, but verify.” – Kyle Mitchell
