No, you can cancel our management contract by giving one month notice. This shows our ethics and confidence.

Is your management fee lower than others?

We are not the lowest, that is for sure, but we provide second to none service. If you check carefully how many dollars you can save by a slightly lower percentage, you will see to make your choice based on percentage of fee may not be a good tactic.
