Property Management is complicated. No two Property Managers provide exactly the same services in exactly the same way. Some do rentals, whilst others may not. Some rentals may be long term, whilst others are short term holiday lets, some properties may be available to rent all the time, with others being only available for some months of the year. The variations go on and on… Some Property Managers do a lot of the cleaning, maintenance and repairs themselves, whilst others may subcontract these services out. Some Property Managers may have different agreements with different clients and properties, but others may have a more uniformed approach. Again, the variations are endless.
The one thing that all Property Managers have in common is that there is a lot more going on behind the scenes than what is immediately obvious – until it falls over! Propierge is a Smart System that has been created for you to use how you want to use it. In the same way that you may use your phone to Call, WhatsApp, Email, access Facebook, do your Shopping and Banking, whilst someone else may use their phone just to Call, Text and access Facebook (even though the other features (and more) are there if they wanted to use them), Propierge can be used in exactly the same way. Propierge has a vast range of Features available which can be used according to your needs. These can be set up and controlled as you want them to be controlled. We provide some standard set ups to start you off, but you can even change these if they don´t work for you and your business.
Whether you are on your own holding everything together or have a large team, do or don´t provide rentals, keep everything in house or subcontract out, provide additional services such as “Concierge Style” Reservations or don´t have the time, Propierge can help. Propierge is here to help you work smarter not harder, to save you time and money and help you to ensure that less things are forgotten or missed. With Propierge providing that behind the scenes support, maybe the illusion of Property Management being simple, gets a little closer to reality!
Propierge was founded in 2015 by Clare Westwood after nearly 10 years of running WCS Bespoke, a successful Holiday Property Management business in Sotogrande, Spain. Clare wanted a system to help run her business more efficiently and after realising there was nothing available on the market that fulfilled her requirements, she decided to build something bespoke to suit her needs. During the build process Clare, having seen the gap in the market, decided to broaden the scope of the system to appeal to a wider range of Spanish & European Property Managers. Today, Propierge has grown to become a tight knit team of people who are intent on really solving the more complex (and often unnoticed) aspects of Property Management.
Unless you are on the ground, rolling your sleeves up and dealing with the day to day issues, the complex nature of what Property Managers do is often overlooked and dismissed. Propierge has taken 3 years to get to where it is today, where we can finally offer it out to other Spanish & European Holiday Property Managers. We will never try to tell Property Managers how to do their jobs. We just want to provide the tools to help them run their businesses more efficiently, ultimately saving time and money. And we know that this journey has only just begun….

She started working on Propierge at the end of 2014 and spent the following 3 years refining and improving it, to ensure that what was finally delivered gets to the heart of the problems that Property Managers have to deal with day to day. Later in 2015, Clare saw her vision of what Propierge needed to be come to life and become the Holiday Property Management System that Property Managers love to use and rely on.
