They DO NOT need license

Technically the answer is NO because there are no federal or state regulations that require a license. It is unlike real estate, in which we have to get either a salesperson license or a broker’s license to be able to conduct and do real estate transactions. Of course, you are doing real estate related stuff, but you’re not doing the transactions.

 

Jarrett Lau, who handles the Green Ocean Property Management’s real estate division, has a real estate license. In addition, Jarrett holds other licenses to make sure that he is as educated and has much knowledge and experience to pass on to our clients. He has the following licenses:

 

  • Mortgage License
  • General Contractor License 
  • Dealeader’s License
  • Studied to be an arborist for landscaping

 

Our job is to be able to continue to learn and grow and stay ahead of the curve and be knowledgeable, but for property management, what we do is get accreditations from third-party groups. Jarrett also has to continue studying every year and pass exams to get these accreditations.

 

These are again just to increase our knowledge to be able to continually learn and get better for our clients.

 

If you or anyone else you know, is looking for a property manager that’s proactive, always learning and growing and trying to figure out how to stay ahead of the curve so that you don’t have to, please think of Green Ocean Property Management, where you get more than a property manager, you get peace of mind.
