Meet the Team
Our talented staff delivers impressive results for our clients.
President / Principal Broker
A local industry leader, Larry Simpson plays a crucial role as the President of Realty Management Advisors. Larry ensures RMA's corporate policies conform to state law, and he personally approves all contracts for properties we represent. With a B.S. degree in Foreign Service and an MBA from the University of Pennsylvania, Larry calls on his extensive background to keep our clients satisfied. Highlights from his career include serving as a real estate instructor at Portland State University and Portland Community College, serving the State of Oregon as a CPA, and managing a 6,000-unit residential portfolio before founding RMA Oregon.
As President of RMAO, Larry sets the corporate and property management policy in conformity with Oregon Real Estate law. He is responsible for client development and communication. He supervises property capital expenditures and monthly cash performance of each property, and approves all contracts for all properties.
Assistant to the President
Kristin, a graduate of St. Mary's College of California, designs marketing pieces for the company and manages property data sheets. She also controls and directs RMAO's website and all other internet marketing, including advertising on Craigslist. Furthermore, Kristin acts as the photographer for the company, and keeps property profiles up to date with current pictures. She also performs open house.
Richard, the corporate controller is responsible for the preparation of the monthly corporate and property financial statements, and for the monthly reconciliation of the client trust accounts. He supervises the office staff and insures compliance with corporate policies. Richard is also responsible for the monthly collection of rent and tenant compliance notifications.
Director of Resident Relations
With RMAO since 1998, Heather started as an onsite manager and then became a leasing agent for the whole SW division. As the Director of Resident Relations, Heather coordinates all vendors for the timely turnover of vacant rental units, is responsible for coordinating the maintenance and repair requests of tenants, and coordinates vendor bids for major projects. Heather also prepares tenant notification letters for rental agreement violations and complaints, and is responsible for the set-up of new vendors and maintenance of their insurance files.
Accounts Payable (Accountant)
Silvia has been a part of the RMAO team since 1996. Silvia is responsible for all property accounts payable. She also contacts utility and other contract vendors upon acquisition of a property or disposition of a property, and resolves payment issues with vendors. Also a Spanish/English bilingual speaker, Sylvia plays a large role in communication with tenants and clients.
About Realty Management Advisors
In 1985, after continually encountering properties poorly managed by companies in the Portland area, Larry Simpson decided to create a management company for smaller residential investment properties. Through word-of mouth, the client base grew and Realty Management Advisors Oregon, Inc. became one of the premier property management companies for owners of residential investment properties. Larry is frequently heard saying, “We do not want to be the largest management company in Portland, we just want to be the best.”
I was very happy with Realty Management Advisors because there were no strange costs. I would recommend renting from RMA.
I love RMA Oregon. I am always greeted with nothing but smiles and kind words. Any maintenance issues have been taken care of within a week, sooner with emergencies.
