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 is an owner or part owner in over 200 investment properties and has the formula for financial success through investing in real estate. Although Idaho does not require licensing of property managers, Tony is a real estate broker 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’s employees. In providing management service since 1990, First Rate Property Management has been terminated by less than five owners. So First Rate isn’t just our name, it describes the service we demand. Don’t just take our word, please ask our clients.

First Rate Property Management currently manages over 900 rental units and has 16 employees. That’s a ratio of 60 properties to one employee. Call around and you will find that many companies have an employee to property ratio of over 100 properties to one employee and they most likely do not have the systems in place that we do to streamline the process. As a result, First Rate Property Management is able to attend to our tenant and client needs very quickly.

Boise Investor Newsletter

About our Newsletters

First Rate Property Management specializes in the professional management of residential rental properties. The purpose of our newsletters is to inform those looking to invest in the Boise market, the factors surrounding the financial performance. One such factor is residential vacancy numbers and the movement of rents. Therefore we regularly post vacancy statistics, along with rental market trends. Other factors in financial performance is knowing property values. Therefore we also report on the Real Estate market and where values are moving. Regardless if Boise property values are going up or down, the data is crucial in making the best decision to buy or sell an investment property. Lastly, the other factors related to real estate financial performance are expenses. So we post how First Rate Property Management controls those costs and provides hints on how to decrease those costs. Most of the data is specific to Ada County (Boise, Meridian, Eagle), although much of the rental market data is relative to Canyon County (Nampa and Caldwell) as well. When appropriate we report national rental statistics and how the market and trends relate to Boise Landlords and Renters. Remember, we at First Rate Property Management are not just property managers, we're investors too.
