February 16, 2015 - Special Message to Our Valued Clients:
Recent news reports regarding theft of owners' funds from a high-profile property management company in our area have caused great concern. We at Acorn Property Management want to assure you that both our Clients' Trust Account and our Clients' Trust Security Deposit accounts are fully funded, and shall remain so.
To ensure compliance with Oregon Real Estate Agency (OREA) law and regulations, and to provide maximum security to our owners, Acorn has a three-step funds oversight process. Our bookkeeper's activity is overseen by both Acorn owner, Jim Straub, and property manager, Tia Politi, as well as an independent third-party consultant who performs our bank reconciliations and the required OREA triple-check system to ensure accuracy, prevent theft, and avoid any appearance of impropriety.
We take our fiduciary duty to you seriously, so the protection of your personal and financial information and monies is our top priority. We have multiple safeguards in place, including level-of-need access to personal and financial data, limited check signers, and limited access to bank records and funds. In addition to these in-house measures, our property management software, Appfolio, is widely respected throughout our industry and considered to be audit-ready and theft-proof. We deeply appreciate your continued trust in our management of your rental properties and welcome your questions at any time regarding this and other property management issues. Thank you.
