Thanks to Ashley Lutke-Schipholt and South Okanagan Rentals

I just wanted to express my thanks to South Okanagan Rentals for the fine service and care that has been undertaken for the last four years for my property in Oliver.  When I met Ashley four years ago she was just starting out in the property management business.  Today, the business, in a much needed area, has grown tremendously.  This is due in large part to the dedication Ashley and her staff give to the properties under their care. 

 All of my concerns, as an owner, were met in a timely manner.  The clients she recruited to live in my house were of a high calibre.   Property deficiencies were brought to my attention immediately.  The rent was always paid on time.

If, in the future, I buy rental property in the South Okanagan I will definitely consider South Okanagan Rentals as my manager.  I would recommend South Okanagan Rentals to anyone. They have done a great job for me!

It's been great having Ashley as my property manager. I live in Kelowna and go south over the winter.  This means I simply don't have the time to deal with my rental. Ashley coordinates your property issues in a professional, timely manner.  She knows her community well, resulting in responsible reliable tenants as well as, competent professional repairs when needed.  The administration component of collecting the rent, doing the walk-throughs, and processing the monthly and annual statements is always on time.  Ashley has my "vote" of approval.
Sincerely,

I wish to take a moment to commend Ashley at having done an excellent job as my property manager while I lived in another province.   She helped me personally and professionally with  going through an arbitration process and made is seem so simple.  She is the right choice for any landlord as she is very up–to–date with the Act and procedures, and very meticulous with detail.  At the end of the day it is about trust and for this reason and confidence, I recommend Ashley Lutke-Schipholt at South Okanagan Rentals.

I was looking for property management services for my rental property and was referred to Ashley Lutke-Schipholt.  In a matter of weeks she had secured a long term rental.

I find Ashley professional, friendly and responsive.  All monies and statements have been received on time and inspections with pictures included assured me that my property was being well taken care of.

I would not hesitate to recommend Ashley for your property management requirements.

Sincerely,

Deb Cromwell

 

Ashley and her team have been helpful and professional in all ways. Initially we were out of the country and in need of a place to live rather quickly. Ashley not only answered all of our questions immediately, she also provided us with the details and paperwork to help us finalize the arrangements within 48 hours. Since that time we've thoroughly enjoyed our villa and the experience of living by a lake. And we greatly appreciate the care and attention to repairs, maintenance and general ongoing rental processes demonstrated by Ashley and RE/MAX. Many thanks, Ashley, to you and all involved.   -Lori Dean and Kim Meyer 

 

We love where we are living thanks to Ashley and her team. The condominium complex is private, well kept, and modern.  All rental processes are smoothly taken care of and there is always someone available if there is an issue.  Any repairs are taken care of in a timely manner and they will go the extra mile to help with the little things.  Apartment maintenance is flawless so that we can enjoy blooming roses in the summer and shoveled snow in the winter.  Thank you Ashley and team! - M. Allen Osoyoos, BC

After trying to maintain our properties while working 2 full time jobs and failing; I hired Ashley.  Within two months she had all four of our rentals cleaned-up, newly assessed and approved tenants were in and we were beginning to see some positive changes with our investments.  The care and attention that gets applied with them is above and beyond what I was able to do, and as a result our future looks brighter.  Thanks to Ashley and her team. We will use her as our go-to professional during all of our real-estate needs. - Chad Collington 

 

Ashley has been our Property Manager at Sierra Heights 6840­ 89 St in Osoyoos, BC for just over a year now.We have found her to be approachable, available, courteous and efficient in all our concerns. She inherited a few problems with our financials from previous, but with Accounting staff was able to sort everything out to our complete satisfaction. I would be happy to recommend her to any other Strata as a competent and reliable Property Manager.

Yours sincerely,

We have been associated with Ashley since May, 2012 when she became our agent and has since managed our Townhouse located in Osoyoos, B,C. Ashley has operated in a prompt and professional manner by conducting extensive searches to locate responsible tenants, requiring them to provide rental and character references as well as employment records to ensure financial accountability.A property inspection was done by Ashley and pictures were taken to provide evidence that our unit is being well maintained and cared for.

We are very pleased with Ashley and highly recommend her as a property manager.

We had an extremely difficult situation with the previous property management of our condo in Osoyoos and being out of town exacerbated the situation.  Ashley took over our account and we could not have been more fortunate!   We really do count our blessings to have someone that has never let us down; from finding a tenant to repairs that could have been costly she has always been reliable and come through!  A true shining star! - K. Ballantyne

 

I turned to Ashley in a panic when a previous property manager let me down.  Since then I have been able to travel the world, knowing Ashley is protecting my investment. Questions I  have  are answered promptly and any concerns  or  problems with my property always been dealt with in a timely and professional manner.   Regular communication keeps  me informed. Thank you Ashley. - B. Reeves

BCSM is a reliable, timely and overall effective management team.  From the outset of finding a tenant, to collecting and depositing the rent, to coordinating repairs, they are efficient and responsible.  They are the liason between the tenant and absentee landlord.  When a problem arises, such as a leak or problem furnace, they advise you with a suggested solution and price.  Fabulous service for both tenants and landlords.
My thanks Ashley - Anne Macnab
