Aaron Emery, Founder & Managing Director of PULSE Property Management Consulting and Principal Licensee of AAE Property Services. PULSE PM Consulting is an independent consultancy firm offering specialised property management business consulting, mentoring & coaching, utilizing the world’s first architecturally designed & reverse engineered property management platform, ii processes, resources and training. In March 2018 I was awarded the Australian Master iiCC designation by ireviloution after being specially trained as a property management business analyst, strategist and system engineering specialist.
In my last role as an “employee” I was general manager for a large management rights company, overseeing six residential apartment buildings and twelve property & building management operational staff. In 2016, after working exclusively in property management for just over 9yrs I decided to follow my dreams and opened AAE Property Services, offering professional, unrivalled boutique property management services to a capped number of exclusive Brisbane investors who had a certain style of property, within a very defined core market area.
Growth was tough initially, I openly admit there are some things I’d do differently if I had my time over, but it’s been a great learning experience and I’m still here. I lived through it, or the business did, and tougher times are now behind me with some nice steady growth over the last six months. I’ve made sure I built my business by design, rather than by default like so many property management businesses across Australia, which has had a lot of positive outcomes for me as I focused on the critical numbers for maximum profits. I can very proudly say my average management fee is 8.62%, well above the industry average of 7.0% in my service area. Because of this, and other factors like the “minimum rent per week policy”, my monthly income is similar to that of someone with double the number of properties.
