1. Finding the Right Manager

    When we let Metropolis Auckland Property Management help us in our real estate investment, we are letting someone who works good at it take care of our properties for us. We would not be at loss because they have dealt with their clients successfully and efficiently. This kind of management companies can become our advantage in this kind of business as they help us achieve our full potential as clients. More than being concerned for the welfare of our properties, a good property management company can draw a valuable thing out of our properties. We must only expect that they will do the decision making for us most of the time. This is why it is very important that we can find someone who is the best among the rest so we can make sure that our time, energy, efforts and resources will not go to waste. We must be able to find us some guidance so we can choose a good person for the management of our properties. When we have found a good person, we would not regret it at all. We would be able to do something good for our properties at the very end of our hard work. 

  2. An introduction to the world of online money transfers

    As a financial expert I thought I knew what was best with all things to do with money, but when I went to send money online for the first time, I found myself stumped by the plethora of options to choose from.

    Rather than going for the most heavily advertised options and the big names like Paypal, I put a little research into finding the best services. I've used Paypal to receive payments in the past but found them a little difficult to deal with when something goes wrong (as it does all too often, unfortunately).

    Knowing that there is always a better option out there, I looked through as many websites and articles as I could  before I came to the conclusion that the most commonly heard of and used companies, like Paypal or Skrill, are giving customers their service at a very high cost compared to some of the new up-and-comers who are shaking up the industry.

    There is actually quite a few websites out there that would let me send money online, but they were all offering roughly the same thing - some less and some more.

    I quickly learned that people who tend to send their money transfers via traditional banks are getting taken for a ride, both on fees and the exchange rates they're changing their money at.

    After a long search through the different companies and what they had to offer I found myself deciding between three of the relative newcomers to the market (at least compared to Paypal, although they've both been around for years now) - OrbitRemit, WorldRemit and Transferwise.

    They were all offering great rates and both Transferwise and OrbitRemit appear to have very professional customer service (I marked WorldRemit down a few points in this respect).

    OrbitRemit has a great website (https://www.orbitremit.com) with very clear steps throughout the whole process. They allowed me to see the transfer rates and all charges to be made before I pressed send, so there were no unexpected charges or hidden fees of any sort.

    The transfer was processed quickly (with 48 hours) and I got a transfer confirmation email from them right away.
