Cynthia Kettel, Managing Broker
Lighthouse Real Estate Inc.

As asset developers and managers, our goal is to enhance the long term value of real property while minimizing upkeep and maintenance expense. We can take a project from the idea stage to design, development, financing, construction, leasing and managing. We stay involved step by step and over the life of the investment. Providing this long term continuity is a distinct customer-advantage that increases income and minimizes hassles for Lighthouse clients.
Our clients also appreciate the fact that They only deal with two brokers. Cynthia handles planning, advertising, financials and tenant relations. Dave handles all facilities matters ensuring timely, budget-wise responses to tenant concerns. At all times our clients receive the personal attention of a Broker-owner with no middle-man. There is no substitute for experience that has generated positive results in every type of economy.
Our website is promoted on military, commercial and residential sites and has attracted tenants from Europe, Asia and the East Coast.

We believe there is a formula for successful real estate management which begins with choosing the correct property, financing it to meet your cash flow and equity growth objectives, and pre-planning a tax-saving exit strategy. Specific tasks that support our formula include seeking out quality tenants, maintaining the physical structures, fixtures and landscape, while maintaining a quality image in marketing and optimizing your profits. We understand how important your real estate investments are to you because we have built and managed our own residential and commercial properties.

We manage over 300 units and have maintained a low vacancy rate, out-performing
Thurston County’s average. Our vacancy factor is below 1%.

Asset Management includes:

  • Taking distressed and blemished properties with lackluster financials into top performers
  • Raising rental rates while supervising improvements
  • Cosmetic improvements to generate significant rent increases
  • Remodels & Restoration
  • Interior and exterior inspections

Leasing or Full Service Management – You Choose!

We offer property owners comprehensive property management or a la carte services. We may even recommenda hybrid management program that will give you the benefit of hands-on 24/7 management at a much reduced fee. Call us to discuss your needs and goals.

RESIDENTIAL MANAGEMENT --HOMES, DUPLEXES, APARTMENTS


Advertising

The brokerage will advertise and find new, qualified tenants who will care for their units.

Screening & Pre-Qualification

We provide full screening of each prospective tenant: including income, credit, prior rental history, criminal background investigation and phone calls to the former landlord and verification of employment as well.

Maintenance

Tenants will be instructed to call our office to report needed repairs. By having a property manager handle all tenant relations, manage vendors and take emergency calls, you free up valuable time for other priorities.

Rent Collections & Reporting

We will maintain your current rent roll, provide monthly property status reports and make recommendations for improvements as needed.

Inspections

Written walk thru inspections will be augmented by digital photography to document property condition upon each tenant’s arrival and departure, providing the ownership with first-hand knowledge of the actual property condition.

FINANCIAL CONTROL

A unique feature of Lighthouse Management is that your rent money is always yours! All checks for deposits and rents are payable to you and deposited into your account.

We invoice you at the end of the month for agreed upon services rendered.
