Barrett Property Mgmt. launched in Nevada County


In order to highlight the attractive features of recreational foothill living in Nevada and Placer counties, Barrett Property Management has been launched by owner and broker Amelia Barrett.

BPM launched Jan. 4 in Nevada County with plans to move into Placer County next aiming to be the hub of the community’s booming rental market, Barrett said.

“Our goal is simple: We’ll use our passion and knowledge of the real estate industry to help our clients lease their properties and to help tenants locate these properties to call home,” Barrett said.

According to Barrett, BarrettPM.com is the only property management website in Nevada County that delivers all the available rental listings in one place by linking tenants to the sources of rentals, including Craigslist, The Union, other property management companies and Barrett Property Management.

“We understand what it is like to search for a rental home. With a handful of websites to navigate, the process can become a burden,” Barrett said. “We solved this by providing a website that has all the resources for tenants in one place.”

Barrett Property Management’s unique approach aims to draw in tenants with this comfortable and simple idea to streamline the search process and has a creative approach to cater to property owners, Barrett said.

“We are one of the very few local companies that allow our owners 24/7 online access to their properties,” Barrett said. “Owners can log in at BarrettPM.com anytime to view financial statements, ledgers and saved documents and track the progress of maintenance requests on their properties. Good communication is the key to the overall success of a rental property. It is our duty to make sure everything runs smoothly, and that requires everyone involved in the property to understand one another.”

This feature is especially convenient for out-of-state owners, Barrett said, adding that along with exceptional communication, BPM offers a rare fee schedule.

“Our fee is simple and is never marked up beyond an invoice of professional service pertaining to the property,” Barrett said.

Nobody enjoys being nickel-and-dimed to death and hidden ongoing expenses in property ownership can add up to large expenses over time, Barrett said.

“Our management fee is 7 percent of gross monthly rents, period,” Barrett said. “If we have to supervise a contractor performing work on the property, that is included in our fee. No hidden costs.”

Barrett is a licensed California real estate broker, California real estate trainee appraiser and certified property tax appraiser.

She has been working in the real estate industry since 2005, starting first as a licensed real estate salesperson, then later obtained her real estate trainee appraisal license to better her knowledge of the real estate industry.

Barrett recently worked for the Nevada County Assessor’s office appraising residential and commercial real estate for property tax purposes and appeals hearings.

With her unique and vast experience in the real estate industry, Barrett said she is looking forward to being a successful business owner.
