The Property Management Company (PMC) provides an integrated property management and factoring service to thousands of residential properties throughout Scotland. PMC is a privately owned and managed business, established in Aberdeen in 1995.

The Property Management Company Directors are fully committed to providing excellence in our service standards across the entire range of our property management and factoring operations. In recent years, The Property Management Company has concentrated on the development of our ‘core’ client base. Our success here, coupled with encouragement from several major developers, and approaches from established residents’ associations, are major factors in our continued expansion.

At PMC, we believe that the provision of efficient customer care and service is of paramount importance in maintaining relationships with our clients, and developing our business. Each of our clients has direct telephone and email access to a Property Management Company, Property Manager in order to address and process customer enquiries over the entire range of property issues.

The ‘key’ to our success we believe, is our ability and desire to communicate with our clients with ease, in order that ‘small’ issues are never allowed to become ‘big’ problem.
