ALAMOSA — On Thursday, May 31, at 5:30 p.m., Eclipse Property Management will be celebrating their grand opening at 605 3rd Street in Alamosa.
Chuck Kelley, the owner of Eclipse Property Management, started his real estate career with Porter Realty, joining the Porter family team. At that time, the Property Management division was lead by Preston Porter. Mary Ann Porter trained Chuck and he became the property manager. After six years of heading the property management division, Chuck Kelley was given the opportunity to buy the division and start his own company, Eclipse Property Management.
With Chuck’s philosophy of a property management only approach, it allows his company to focus fully on the needs of Eclipse’s owners and tenants. When talking to Chuck, he had this to say about Eclipse; “My goal is simple, I want owners happy, and I want tenants happy. It sounds easy, but when you are working with over 500 individuals, it can be challenging. I have built a great team, and with our focus on customer satisfaction, we hope to be able to help even more people with their property management needs. I know that with the ever-changing landscape of landlord and tenant law, it can be scary for the do-it-yourself landlords. I go to update classes and NARPM events every month or two just to make sure that I’m current on the changing laws so my owners are protected.”
NARPM is the National Association of Residential Property Managers, and Chuck has his Residential Management Professional (RMP ® ) designation from them. He is one of only 35 in the State of Colorado, and he is the only one with this designation in the San Luis Valley.
With a customer service centered company, and the solid foundation of knowledge required to be a NARPM RMP ® , Chuck Kelley is changing the local property management industry expectations and standards. “I’m a win-win-win guy. If my owners are happy and if my tenants are happy, then I’m happy.”
