RELIANCE

Swat Team

 

The Reliance swat team is comprised of professionals with decades of Real Estate experience.

They are dispatched to a property prior or immediately after a purchase to implement ways to improve the property whether it means streamlining expenses and or giving the property a cosmetic face lift to raise rents in markets where that would be feasible. Our Swat team has translated into millions of profits by being able to upgrade properties in these ways and executing a strong value add plan.

Shimon Ehrman

Director of Operations, Real Estate Division

Mr. Ehrman brings a combination of experience and enthusiasm to the team at Reliance. As Director of Operations, he oversees the management and operation of all Reliance’s properties. His determination and goal-oriented approach serve him well in managing about 2,500 units spread out throughout the United States. When not analyzing the overall financial performance of his team, Mr. Ehrman’s hands-on style manifests itself in many routine inspections of the physical properties to ensure productivity and organization. All regional managers report directly to him.

Mr. Ehrman’s motto is encapsulated best in the name of his management company: Efficiency! With a constant eye to improvement, Mr. Ehrman is known to uncover ways to improve already efficient platforms, whether through restructuring current systems or generating new ones, all with an inimitable passion for excellence. To date, he has substantially raised the value of a multitude of properties by increasing occupancy and lowering expenses, and correspondingly increasing net operating incomes, all while preserving the quality service that Efficient-managed residents have come to expect. As Reliance expands its property management base, Mr. Ehrman is well-posed to apply his unique style in growing a dynamic, national management company.
