Akora is built for property owners, by property owners. We were tired of worrying if our property was being properly looked after or if we were actually receiving the level of service we were paying for.
By looking hard at the industry it was easy to see the inefficiencies that were causing these all-too-common problems.
We assembled our team of industry experts and software engineers to create the Akora platform, a solution purpose-built to give more time to our team of property managers and empower our clients with greater access to their rental and property information that frankly, they should have always had.
We rebuilt property management from the ground up to be more efficient, work smarter and utilise automation which allowed us to offer a higher-quality service and reduced our management costs, savings we pass directly onto our clients. We are continually growing and building our service to stay at the forefront of the industry and find solutions for issues owners and tenants are facing.
Because that's the way property management should be.
