It all began in 1970 when Tom got his Real Estate license and started listing and selling properties and in 1977 Tom studied for and got his Broker’s license. There came a time when some of Tom’s clients were in a quandary as to whether or not to sell their properties or rent them out but didn’t want the hassle of handling them on their own. Sheryl had been ‘managing’ a couple of her and Tom’s investments so Tom offered to have Sheryl take care of clients’ properties in the event they decided not to sell.
In 1978 Sheryl took the job of overseeing 3 different properties for some of Tom’s clients which included cleaning (and with the help of her father, 粉刷室内), 显示, 获取租用物业的申请, 筛选和准备必要的最终文书工作(不需要电脑的帮助). When an application was approved Sheryl met with the approved applicants at the property for the final walk through and obtaining move in funds. This was all done free of charge until things started snowballing and more properties were being added which was more work than Sheryl could handle on her own.
During this time Tom continued to list and sell Real Estate for a Real Estate company but soon decided it was time to form a property management company which was named Kerr 居民ial 物业管理, 公司. 办公室设在地下室一个10英尺乘10英尺的房间里.
Sheryl continued to work on her own for a short time after the company was formed but it soon came apparent that she needed more help so Tom transferred his license to Kerr 居民ial 物业管理, 公司. and Tom began 显示 properties to prospective tenants while Sheryl continued on with processing paperwork, 等. 还有记账.
