Outstanding Property Rentals opens
Scott Malis and his fiancé Colleen Sullivan are opening up their full service real estate and property maintenance and management business they call Outstanding Properties on Thursday, November 9 with an open house from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m.
“Actually, we’ll be there until we decide we want to close the door,” joked Linda White, Malis’s brokerage assistant, “so if you’re in the neighborhood, please drop on by.”
The new office is in a renovated apartment building just west of the Thai Steakhouse, right on the water in the Cottonwood Beach section of Birch Bay. Malis is the broker, and employs licensed property manager Megan Feeny as well as White.
The business takes up the four ground floor apartments and is divided by function, with the real estate office in front, his broker’s office behind that, the property management and maintenance office in the third apartment and the administrative office in the last one.
Malis said one of the things about the 60-year-old building he likes best is that it’s on the sunny side of the bay near their home in Birch Bay Village.
The couple bought
the building two years ago and have been working on it ever since.
Malis said his business strategy is one of providing full-service real
estate and property management services.
Together he estimated that they currently manage over two dozen of their own properties, so expanding into a business serving the needs of other owners is a natural.
“This old place,” Malis said, “it wasn’t easy to refurbish but it was the right thing to do. It’s an old traditional piece of Birch Bay, very easy to demolish but with enough character that we wanted to keep its integrity and just make it new.”
Outstanding Properties is located at 8126 Birch Bay Drive, and can be reached at 371-9080. For more information go to www.outstandingpropertiesinc.com.
