Sarah Penman (of Penman Properties) has been taking care of renting my Dunbar condo in Vancouver for the past year. After living in my cozy little condo for over 10 years I was a bit apprehensive to rent out my property. Upon meeting Sarah and learning about her thorough rental process I felt totally reassured and knew I’d met the right person to take care of my investment. Sarah went above and beyond helping me prepare my condo to be rented out. This included organizing small renovations, painting, and cleaning. I didn’t have time to deal with all of this so it was a great relief. She was very particular about choosing potential tenants. This process included credit checks and references, in addition to going with her gut feeling about people. Sarah also organized getting my furniture moved out of my condo, storing it, and as a huge bonus sold items for me that I no longer wanted. Every month my rent money is deposited into my account and I don’t have any tenant stressors to deal with. I would highly recommend Sarah with Penman Properties as your rental agency company.

Dear Sarah, I would like to thank you for helping us rent our apartment so quickly and efficiently! When we approached Sarah and her team, we expressed our need to move out of our current apartment, which meant getting out of our current lease, and the only way to not get penalized with half a month’s rent was for us to find a new tenant. We only had two weeks to achieve this feat and Sarah arranged for multiple showings which landed us 4 offers in one day! Great Job Sarah, your industry knowledge and professionalism has taken a huge burden off our backs and saved us over $1200!

I was in the midst of a big transition in my life. I was downsizing from a house to an apartment and moving to a new city. I did not know how to go about rentals or even what area to move to. I felt overwhelmed by the tight market rental conditions too. Sarah was amazing! She took charge of finding me a place suitable to my needs. She was relentless and highly professional. I love my new place! She even introduced me to great restaurants and showed me the local scene. Sarah goes beyond the call of business. She puts her whole heart in what she does. The well-being and peace of mind of her clients come first for her. I highly recommend her for all your rental property needs.

The stress of managing a short term rental while away for work for 3 months was so overwhelming it didn’t feel worth it. After having a quick conversation with Sarah I felt confident that she would take care of my property as if it were her own and bring in some extra income for me while I was away. I couldn’t be more happy with her services and all the reviews from the people around the world that have rented my condo have said nothing but great things about their experience with her. Short term lease or long, I have the utmost confidence in her level of management.

Penman Properties – relief and satisfaction are words to describe our dealings with Sarah and Penman Properties . When we first purchased our property we tried to manage it ourselves and found it to be very time consuming and at times extremely frustrating. Sarah took over every aspect of the renting out of our property, from the advertising, showings, coordinating the renovations and finally the paperwork. We now have found that we are actually saving money and it is freeing us up to explore other options to generate additional income. This includes looking to invest in other rental opportunities knowing that we have Sarah to help.
