BENSON OPENS PROPERTY MANAGEMENT FULL TIME

By Marjorie Woodfin

Pilot staff writer

"Giving my customers 110 percent" is one of the goals of Rachelle Benson, owner of Pacific Property Partners.

Benson has a property management license issued through the Oregon Real Estate Agency. She opened her business full time in mid-April.

As a property manager, Benson provides a variety of services, including making arrangements for her clients to pay rent through the Chetco Federal Credit Union in Harbor.

In addition, she finds renters for commercial and residential properties, screening would-be tenants. She helps find renters for vacation homes and monitors homes that are unoccupied or on the market.

Wanting to treat people as they would treat her, Benson says, "I'm pretty flexible and will work for an owner at their comfort level."

She has "good people on her team," including a contractors, handymen, yard care people and housekeepers.

Describing herself as "a people person," Benson has management experience that includes motels, rentals and her own cleaning business.

An Oregon Coast resident for 15 years, she enjoys the flexibility of running her business from a her home, noting that doing so keeps her overhead low, which is reflected in her rates.

In addition, she has the flexibility to work at her job as needed, and time to be with her three children.

Benson can be reached by phoning (541) 661-1456.

  • Asian shares, dollar up on Fed's optimism; earnings in focus
    Asian stocks tiptoed higher on Thursday and the dollar consolidated recent gains after the U.S. Federal Reserve painted a relatively bright picture of the economy, but a deepening sell-off in commodities kept gains in check. Prospects of stronger U.S. growth in coming months lifted Asian stocks in early trade, with Japan's Nikkei (.N225) up 1.1 percent and Australian shares (.AXJO) adding 0.8 percent. A dollar-denominated index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan rose 0.2 percent after Chinese stocks had a quiet opening.
  • U.S. second-quarter GDP seen rebounding on consumer spending, housing
    U.S. economic growth likely accelerated in the second quarter as a pick-up in consumer spending and housing offset the drag from trade and the energy sector, suggesting a steady momentum that could bring the Federal Reserve closer to hiking interest rates this year. "The upshift in growth momentum should be sustained during the second half of the year," said Millan Mulraine, deputy chief economist at TD Securities in New York.
  • Fed says economy improving; September rate hike in view
    The U.S. economy and job market continue to strengthen, the Federal Reserve said on Wednesday, leaving the door open for a possible interest rate hike when central bank policymakers next meet in September. "On balance, a range of labor market indicators suggest that underutilization of labor resources has diminished since early this year," the Fed said in a policy statement that kept rates unchanged. The Fed also said it now only needs to see "some" more improvement in the labor market, a qualification that analysts said strongly suggested it believes the recent solid U.S. job gains will continue.
