After more than 7 years of success and growth in the New York City market, ManageGo proudly serves a wide portfolio of property managers in one of the most demanding real estate markets in the world.
This city and it’s people have provided us with an ideal market to build a user-friendly and feature-rich platform.
We are constantly looking to expand on our industry-leading features and streamline our user experience; with over 40 million renters in the US currently, we believe there is an opportunity for significant impact. Because of this, we are excited to be developing a platform that will not only improve the tenant experience, but also optimize the property management process.
Moving forward, we are excited to bring our tenant management platform to the rest of the country, starting with Atlanta and Los Angeles.
To do so, we have brought on two wonderful team members: Alison Thomas, who will be serving the Atlanta region, and Raquel McLaughlin, who will be operating in the Los Angeles region and serving all of California. Both Alison and Raquel will be working locally in their regions to ensure ManageGo can provide quality, in-person service to current and future clients.
Alison brings with her over 10 years of experience in the real estate industry, she has worked in various industry sectors, from construction to marketing. She also enjoys designing and renovating her own home in Atlanta. Alison’s expertise will be very valuable in helping property managers improve their workflow and tenants experience.
Raquel is an LA native who has worked in the real estate and banking industries for over 10 years. She is an avid dog-lover and was formerly the Animal Commissioner of South Pasadena. Raquel is most excited about attending the various events in the LA area – from the Apartment Association of Orange County to the LA Business Journal.
We chose LA and Atlanta to start because they represent two ends of the market spectrum. LA being one of the largest and most established markets, and Atlanta being one of the fastest growing markets.
America has seen rental markets grow, nearly across the board, in the past 10 years but both of these markets stand out among this growth. Los Angeles has the 4th highest percentage of renters in the country at 53.9%1, higher than every other major metropolitan area. Whereas Atlanta has experienced a 34.7% growth in it’s rental market since 2010, compared to a 28.5% national average 2. Additionally, being on opposite coasts, these markets will provide an opportunity to refine our product within a variety of scenarios.
Atlanta and Los Angeles are just some of the stops for ManageGo as we continue expansion to other areas of the country over the next year. We feel the tenant experience is underdeveloped compared to other technological conveniences available for every-day use.
The process of paying rent by check or submitting maintenance requests by phone or email is not only frustrating for tenants, but also increases the property manager’s workload. ManageGo provides a win-win solution for these pain-points through our tenant management platform.
ManageGo has been on the forefront of past industry advancements and we will continue to strive to provide a superior experience for tenants and property managers from New York, to Atlanta, Los Angeles and beyond.
