Vivian - It looks like listing agent's brokerage has been the property manager for some time. There are many experienced property managers in San Antonio, so if you're thinking of buying a four plex like this, but are worried about managing yourself, that shouldn't be a problem. I work with two excellent property managers now and know quite a few at other companies as well.

One piece of advice - if you do get a property manager to handle your rentals, make sure they know what they are doing. Having an inexperienced property manager can land you in trouble and give you more headaches than you can imagine. Many agents jumped into property management when the market slowed and I've had to deal with them from the other side (trying to get them to get me info so clients of mine can rent the units) and it has been frustrating to say the least at times. Finding a property manager with experience is a must - it's not just about collecting rent checks.

I have not stepped into the world of property management for this reason. I have chosen to concentrate my efforts on helping people buy and sell homes. I have been shadowing one of our property managers in order to learn more, but I feel I have a long way to go before I can just dive in.

Hope that helps, if you need property management references, just let me know, I'd be glad to connect you to some of the ones I know.
