Our story

At 460 Property Management we combine leading-edge technology with an open and honest approach to the real estate industry. We understand that real estate is a “people business” – intensely contingent on trust, relationships and teamwork. So we take great pride in ensuring our clients receive the exceptional service needed to properly care for your investment property.

We also understand island culture, because we live here too. (That’s where we got our name: Vancouver Island is 460 kilometres long.) We know that this island is a great place to live and invest, because the communities here are full of genuinely good people. Those people are our employees and tenants and friends. The networks and relationships we build in this community ensure that your real estate investment is always in good hands.
