As a UK resident, I was introduced to DASA in 2007 when considering the purchase of rentals in Buffalo. By phone, Lisa Fucina Nichols gave me a comprehensive briefing on the company that convinced me I had found a competent, efficient and owner friendly organization. They take full responsibility of my portfolio and offered advice about the properties I was considering at one time. They kept me away from purchases in problem areas of the city and have helped to keep vacancies down to 2 or 3 weeks between tenants. I recommend their bookkeeping service as it has enabled me to have organized records which make it easy to deal with the IRS.
I'm kept well informed about tenancy changes, repairs and maintenance. I am confident these matters will be dealt with in a thoroughly professional manner and at reasonable cost. The availability of the repair/maintenance service is vital for a quick response to tenant call-ins. It encourages tenants to feel like the owner cares about the quality of the property they call home. Regular inspections are made to keep on top of maintenance works and John is always available to discuss these matters.
Yes! Dasa has set the quality standard for property management in Buffalo. If you're in the rental business, my view is look no further. The City of Buffalo is fortunate to have Dasa.

Occupancy has been maintained, repairs have been done quickly at reasonable costs, and rent collections and bookkeeping have been excellent.
If you are looking for a reputable, diligent, and responsive property management company in the greater Buffalo area, Dasa Properties is the go to. Dasa has set the bar against which all others - inside and outside the area - should be measured. Living on the west coast, it was important for me to partner with a property management company I could trust to oversee the upkeep of the property I own in Buffalo.

In the years I've worked with Dasa, I've come to recognize that success in property management is the result of thousands of small actions and decisions. Before I hired Dasa in 2007, my properties had been languishing with a previous manager whom I had selected because he talked a good game, but who turned out to have poor attention to detail and scant follow-through skills. He spent his time managing me instead of managing the properties. Little things got missed. Tenants came to expect that their repair requests would usually go unanswered -- until they contacted me directly. By contrast, since I switched to Dasa, we’ve seen a steady, consistent improvement and a pro-active approach to maintenance that has kept my tenants happy, and the long-term ones staying put. The cumulative effect of the years of proactive repairs and happy tenants have allowed us to gradually increase rental rates in-line with market conditions while maintaining full occupancy. The result is that by the 10th anniversary of working together, we have achieved a fully-occupied, well-maintained, cash-flow positive set of rental units that I’m proud to own. Starting our second decade, I’m extremely happy with the relationship.

As an out-of-country real estate investor, my biggest challenge was finding the right property manager. Since working with Dasa my properties are well taken care of, my involvement is minimal and their communication is transparent. I TRUST them implicitly. When I call them, I feel like I'm talking to a part of my team. Their efforts have made all the difference and I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Dasa team!
