Property Ventures podcast with Barry Adkins and Mark Honeybone. 

Avoid painful mistakes by managing your property like a business

Welcome to this weeks episode where we dive into Property Management with Barry Adkins from Quniovic, one of New Zealand’s premier Property Management firms. It’s no good buying a property if you don’t receive consistent rental income from it and one of the fastest ways to get yourself into a bad situation is to not manage your rental properly. Conversely when you’re looking to buy a PM with strong local knowledge of the area can be a fantastic source of street-by-street information that you otherwise would not have had access to. Mark has run a property management business in the past and he and Barry dive into:


  • The big mistakes Barry sees owners managing their own properties often make.
  • What’s in it for you to work with your PM as a partner and not as just another service provider.
  • How the systems a PM company uses will help you make more money over time.
  • Questions to ask when choosing a PM.
  • What must a landlord do when they get a new tenant to save money and pain down the line.
  • How to give yourself the best chance to win tenancy tribunal cases.
  • As a long time investor – Barry’s advice for people getting into the property market.
