JPM Property Management


Giving your property the best possible first impression.

JPM has met and exceeded my expectations from a property management partner. They have successfully incorporated my high level expectations into their execution of the stewardship of the property and the tenants. Small details that I do not care to be involved in, have been efficiently handled, and reported to me in a most compact, yet comprehensive monthly management report. Upon my next investment in the Oregon/Washington area I will most definitely look to Jack Palmer and his team to assist me in my financial endeavor.

I’m pretty familiar with property management issues. Growing up my grandfather owned a management company, as did my parents. I own a brokerage in Hawaii and we operated a management division for years. JPM is a truly professional operation. Jack Palmer has assembled an excellent team. Statements are detailed and accurate and on time, maintenance is handled promptly but with an eye to minimizing expense, communication is excellent. The last time I suggested Geoffrey do something with one of my buildings he said “Oh, I did that a couple months ago”. You can expect the best from JPM.

Jack Palmer and his team at JPM Real Estate Services continue to do an outstanding job managing Crescent Ridge Apartments for me and my co-owner. In fact, working with Jack is just like having a third partner in the business.
Jack knows that residential real estate is a consumer-oriented business and that tenants are customers. He stays on top of the day-to-day issues and keeps us informed of any issues we need to know about. In addition, he has been an active participant in and effective contributor to the various improvement projects that we have undertaken to improve the property and increase its long-term income potential.
Above all, he is a pleasure to deal with

I have been a client of JPM for over three years. Jack was referred to me by another client of JPM who was extremely satisfied with the services offered. I am the owner of 46 apartment units in SE Portland. JPM from day one has been very professional and extremely knowledgeable about the property management business in the Northwest. They have kept my units rented at nearly 100% for the last three years. The maintenance of my units has been of the highest quality. When problems have occurred they have handled them quickly and to the satisfaction of all concerned. They are always watching the market trends and keep me informed of any changes that need to be made. JPM is a “SPOT ON” company and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone in need of a first rate management team.

The team at JPM Real Estate are wonderful to work with! They have done an excellent job on all levels of communication with regards to our property’s management. Their monthly reports are easy to read and understand. They do a very good job in controlling costs, yet know where to spend the necessary funds to make our property shine. We went from a B+ property to an A within one year thanks to Jack and his trusted team of individuals. I would not only use them again for other properties, but would recommend them to anyone.

Our LLC has been a client of JPM since 2004. The company has good leadership, is professional, creative and has delivered excellent results to the owners of our 20 unit apartment. JPM maximized our returns during their management and on our investment when we recently sold it. In short, JPM has gone the extra mile for us on a regular basis to help achieve our goals.
Thank you, JPM for an outstanding and successful 13 years of management of our property!
