Although First & Main Property Management is a new company – opening its doors in March 2021 – owner Jessica Buurma brings with her 13 years of property management experience and her business partner, Damian Bennett, 20 years of experience in technology. The two decided to join forces after working together previously, both realizing property management would benefit tremendously from the implementation of modern technologies. Together they offer full-service residential and commercial property management in Napa Valley.
First & Main Property Management wants to protect and grow property investments, allowing owners the financial security that real estate provides. While most property management companies collect rent and pay bills, First & Main Property Management does that, but with the additional focus of maximizing the returns of their clients’ real estate investments. Owners can opt for a full-service management package which includes services such as managing accounting and maintenance issues with licensed and insured vendors, conducting annual inspections, production of tax forms for vendors and owners, preparation of budgets, and even developing a comprehensive preventative maintenance plan specific to their client’s property.
What sets First & Main Property Management apart from other businesses is creating a more modern and elevated way of doing property management that gives owners and tenants access to features that may not be available through other companies. They employ high technology automation and have developed proprietary marketing plans and systems to help them best serve their clients.
One of the most crucial owner services First & Main Property Management offers is its marketing campaigns, which include taking professional photos and producing premium videos to best showcase the properties they represent. They also post property listings to social media outlets and engage with the community both online and face to face to ensure the highest level of exposure for the vacant properties. A glance at their Instagram account, @firstandmainpm, demonstrates their cutting-edge approach to property management, with stunning visuals and meaningful engagement with their followers.
First & Main Property Management is invested in and cares about the Napa community as a whole. They are fully committed to Napa Valley and its fantastic residents and businesses. They encourage people to shop local, support their commercial tenants, and enjoy being part of the community. First & Main Property Management strives to always be available beyond regular business hours. “We pick up the phone. We’re friendly. We enjoy this business. We have a proven track record that the way we do it all works well.”
