The Team

Our Team

Pacific Dawn takes the time to understand what our clients’ goals and objectives are and then tailors a program to fulfill these goals.

Pacific Dawn understands and embraces the need to have day-to-day involvement of the company owners and the professionalism of our senior staff ensures that our critical management concepts are kept uppermost in everyone’s mind and actions.

At Pacific Dawn Asset & Property Management Services Inc., we make a commitment to treat each of the properties under our management as though they were our own. This commitment manifests itself in such matters as positive tenant relations, timely collection of rents, preparation of clear concise reports and accounts, reliance on competitive bidding for work contracted out, implementation of effective cost controls, employment only of qualified personnel, careful supervision of those personnel and equally careful monitoring of services provided by outside tradesmen. We consider it our responsibility also to ensure that leases are properly prepared and executed prior to a new tenant being given occupancy or access to start its improvements. All properties under Pacific Dawn’s management have separate trust accounts. There is no co-mingling of monies.

 

Our management style is very hands on with tenant retention being a priority as is achieving savings through maintenance staff, service contract review and cost analysis. Communication and understanding of our clients’ goals and requirements along with those of tenants are also a vital commitment of our company that enables us to ensure all parties achieve their goals and enjoy the process.

 

Our knowledgeable team will identify all issues a property has and then with a clear understanding of our clients’ goals and objectives for their holdings we will provide them with an individual financial, operational and leasing plan. Our hands-on personal style of management allows us on a daily basis to work closely with our tenants individually in a mutually beneficial atmosphere which promotes, if and when necessary, an ability to resolve conflicts or problems in a creative, positive manner.
