Profit | Systems | People Review


Profit – A full business review showing your profit & loss breakdown by division. What we do is take your financials and rework them into our proven industry targeted format, which will show you the breakdown of profit and loss by Sales division and Property Management. This is then put into a Management Report pack that is easy to read and understand, on one page.

Systems – Can your staff implement your software’s full functionality and efficiency? We look at not just the software that’s in place, but who uses it and how they use it. Real Estate businesses can have several different platforms which could be Sales and Property Management Trust and CRM (which may be all different) and financial accounts.  We will highlight any issues and provide recommendations on how to rectify.

People – Staff reviews identify the role they were employed to do vs what they actually do. Are your staff performing and is their willingness to adapt and grow in line with the goals of the business owner?

All the findings from the Profit | Systems | People review are presented to the business owner in a face-to-face meeting, with a final report emailed out containing all the detailed findings.

New Business – It’s true that trust management can be challenging for new businesses, and errors in this area can have compounding effects. It’s important for businesses to establish robust trust management practices from the beginning to mitigate risks and build trust with their clients. We can offer valuable support to new businesses by providing oversight, reconciliations, and month-end roll overs until the business grows and becomes more established to a point where a dedicated staff member takes over the full trust process. At this stage, we can continue to provide support for reconciliation work, month-end activities, or periodical reviews of procedures to ensure that everything remains in order.

Established Business – Performing periodic reviews of trust administration processes and procedures is indeed a good practice for mature businesses. It allows for proactive identification of areas that may need attention before the annual audit and provides an opportunity to make improvements that can enhance efficiencies. By having independent reviews from us, you can gain valuable insight and ensure that your trust administration is running smoothly.
