Every management company owner has a different story about why he or she decided to start a business. Some knew from the outset that they would eventually work for themselves. Others come up with ideas while working for someone else and decide to take the entrepreneurial leap.
Every owner will agree on one thing – owning your own firm has many rewards. There are endless reasons for this, including taking charge of your own future and managing properties the way you know they should be managed. Here are 10 reasons why we think having your own management firm can be rewarding.
One of our favorite business quotes, “If you don’t work on your own dreams, someone will hire you to work on theirs,” is especially true in property management. You’ve worked for others for years to build their companies.
Isn’t it time you chased your own dreams?
If property management is your calling and you’ve dreamed about breaking away to start your management company, an outsourced accounting firm like Ascent Multifamily Accounting can be a perfect partner for your new management company. We’ll handle the business side to let you focus on what you do best—managing properties.
“I started my multifamily management company in early 2017, most recently having worked for a large firm where I had responsibility for more than 14,000 units. I never thought I would have the opportunity to form a management company, largely due to the overhead expense of corporate payroll to sustain standard functions. After reviewing third party management options, I had an “aha” moment and realized I could outsource many back office departments to minimize overall operating expenses.
I highly recommend Ascent Multifamily Accounting. I trust them and they have proven to be reliable, diligent and true to their word. Outsourcing to Ascent has simplified our processes, allowed us to focus on managing our assets, and provided us the opportunity to maintain reasonable corporate expenses.”

One thing that stops some property management executives from starting their own firm is the thought of figuring out the "back office." These are things like accounts payable, payroll, benefits, office space and financial reporting.
Ascent Multifamily Accounting does everything the traditional in-house accounting department would do. With Ascent, each property’s accounting will be managed by CPAs and accountants with an average of 10 years’ experience in property management accounting.
