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.

  • Jobs report may test market's complacency
    The U.S. stock market has been quiet this week - too quiet. Wall Street has traded in a tight range of late, with both volatility and trading volumes drying up as the earnings season winds down and Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's recent Congressional testimony delivered no surprises. About 238,000 jobs are expected to have been added in February, according to the non-farm payroll report that will be released on Friday, down from the 257,000 added in January. "Economic data will be the biggest driver of market moves over the next month, and the key one is the jobs report," said Jim McDonald, chief investment strategist at Chicago-based Northern Trust Asset Management.
  • U.S. economy slowed in fourth quarter, but growth outlook still favorable
    U.S. economic growth braked more sharply than initially thought in the fourth quarter amid a moderate increase in business inventories and a wider trade deficit, but strong domestic demand brightened the outlook. Gross domestic product expanded at a 2.2 percent annual pace, revised down from the 2.6 percent pace estimated last month, the Commerce Department said on Friday. The economy grew at a 5 percent rate in the third quarter. Businesses accumulated $88.4 billion worth of inventory in the fourth quarter, far less than the $113.1 billion the government had estimated last month.
  • Dudley, top U.S. economists urge later Fed rate hike
    Raising interest rates too late is safer than acting too early, an influential Federal Reserve official said on Friday, endorsing a high-profile research paper that argues the U.S. economy, given time, can rebound to the strong growth rate to which Americans are accustomed. The paper by four top U.S. economists, presented on Friday to a roomful of powerful central bankers in New York, argues the Fed would be wise to keep rates at rock bottom for longer than planned and then tighten monetary policy more aggressively. New York Fed President William Dudley, who offered a critique of the paper, cited currently low inflation and warned against being too anxious to tighten monetary policy. The U.S. central bank is in the global spotlight as it weighs when to lift rates after more than six years near zero, and how quickly to tighten policy thereafter.
