Janet Fields is the CEO and Co-Owner of Oak Trust Properties, a boutique family-owned property management business in Charleston, SC.

She bought her first property in 2008, and in 2018 merged her business with her family’s business to create the version of Oak Trust Properties that exists today. Their company culture revolves around core values that she learned from her background as a graphic designer: collaboration, positivity, and constructive criticism.

Oak Trust Properties runs a highly effective service that looks forward to problem-solving as a team. Their main focus is understanding and supporting individual goals, whether it’s that of a client or an employee. As Janet continues to grow the business, it’s her hope that everyone who works for and with the company feels supported and respected throughout their journey, wherever it may lead them.

Webinar Brief: Navigating Market Consolidation - Part II

If you’ve read our blog on the 2022 Industry Trends or if you attended this year’s PM Grow Summit, then you already know how much focus there’s been on market consolidation within the normally fragmented property management world. 

With a lot of institutional and venture backed money being poured into the SFR space, many larger companies are out on the hunt to buy up smaller companies. Hence, our blog post on How to Value a Property Management Company has skyrocketed in clicks. 

  • Companies looking to sell want to make sure they’re selling to the right companies at the right price. 
  • Companies looking to acquire want to make sure they’re buying the right companies at the right price. 
  • Companies who fit neither of those categories are still looking for ways to drive up the value of their company so that they can remain competitive against a growing amount of industry giants. 

In Part 2 of  this multi-session series, we’ll sit down with two different Property Managers who’ve found success in their approach.  

  • Bryan Jenkins successfully sold his company, AHI, to PURE Property Management. We’ll talk about: 
    • What factors led his decision to sell. 
    • What the selling process was like and what needed to be prepped. 
    • What a post-sell looks like for him and his company now. 
  • Janet Fields wants to stay independently competitive against industry giants. We’ll talk about:  
    • What determining factors have influenced her decision to stay independent. 
    • What strategies Janet is using to stay competitive against giants in her market. 
    • How Oak Trust Properties plans to approach continued consolidation in the future for highest success.
