Tony A. Drost, MPM® RMP®, has been an investor and property manager since 1990. Tony has a BA Degree in Operations Management and holds two professional designations offered by the National Association of Residential Property Managers®.
One fact that makes First Rate Property Management different from all others is that Tony is an investor too. Tony has the proven formula for financial success through investing in real estate. Although Idaho does not require licensing of property managers, Tony is a real estate broker with Swope Investment Properties and assists his clients in buying and selling of rental properties. To learn more about Tony's real estate sales, please visit his Boise Investment Properties website. Because Tony is so active in rental investments, Tony manages your property as if it were his own. Tony instills this perspective to all First Rate Property Management employees.
First Rate Property Management's property-to-employee ratio is approximately 60 properties managed per employee. Call around and you will find that many companies have a property-to-employee ratio of over 100 properties managed per employee and, in some cases, as high as one person to every 200 properties managed. The difference likely is not the lack of good systems on First Rate Property Management's part -- our systems are top-notch, proven and reliable -- but rather more about the personal time we devote to each of our valued clients and tenants. First Rate Property Management personally shows each of our properties with a leasing agent, whereas not all do. As a result, First Rate Property Management is able to attend to our tenant and client needs very quickly.

Mission: Our well trained, committed, and valued team provides genuine care for the properties we are entrusted to professionally manage.
