TACOMA – Affinity Investments, Inc. has recently rebranded their company and has become Affinity Real Estate Management, Inc. These changes were made to reflect the company’s new focus – providing property management services to the South Puget Sound Region. With the sluggish residential sale market coupled with increased single-family owner demands for professional rental and management services, the company thought it was a natural progression to expand its services to the single-family investor and home owner in the local market.
Affinity Real Estate Management is currently reaching out to property owners within the South Puget Sound region who need assistance with property management of their single-family, multi-family, or commercial properties. So many property owners invest in real estate in addition to their primary jobs and it becomes time consuming to keep up with landlord tenant laws, daily property operations, and maintenance issues. Affinity Real Estate Management would like to help put those owners at ease by managing their properties with honesty and integrity in a professional and business approach, and overall understanding of the real estate market. With a history in real estate investment and the brokerage business, Affinity maintains a steady focus on making sure that properties are performing at their best and will be stable investments in the long run for their owners. From organizing complete annual property operating budgets and cash flow projections, to full and partial renovation plans, to re-tenanting, and re-marketing a variety of property types – Affinity has the experience and vision necessary to handle any real estate owner’s investment needs.
In order to better market the company while heading in a new direction, Affinity has officially changed its name to Affinity Real Estate Management, specializing in Residential, Commercial, and Investment as their logo indicates. As a part of the company’s re-branding, a completely new user-friendly website is being rolled out, www.affinityrem.com, which provides detailed information about the company’s services and welcomes contact from tenants and property owners alike. The new web site includes a variety of new property photos, new user tabs and headings including “for owner” and “for tenant” sections, new content throughout, new employee photos and contact information, online tenant application and maintenance requests, the company’s standard tenant rental requirements, frequently asked questions, and much more. Additionally, the company has recently evaluated the purchase of another company and is considering acquiring other reputable and professional residential property management companies in the South Puget Sound marketplace.
Founded in 2008 before the plummeting market; Affinity was formed to offer opportunities for any size investor, or group of investors, to become involved in commercial investment properties by forming new investment syndication groups, other acquisitions, renovations, and property management of its own portfolio. Kirk Rector, the President and Co-Founder of Affinity, has over 18 years of experience in the commercial real estate industry, including an extensive background in sales, leasing, management, financing, and ownership capacities. Once the market turned, Kirk and the company saw new opportunities in multi-family investment and the third party management business.
