Our Big “Why” For Being In Business
In an industry racked with mediocrity, in which broken promises are the norm, my team and I are on a mission to raise the bar, through example and service, by providing, “Complete peace of mind property management services,” to property owners and tenants alike. My name is John Michailidis, and I am the owner of Real Property Management of Sarasota & Manatee.
We serve rental property owners and tenants throughout Sarasota and Manatee counties, Florida, by providing full-service, residential property management and leasing services.
People go into business for many reasons — to provide for family, to buy material things, to provide meaningful employment opportunities to others . . .
The primary reason that I am in business with Real Property Management of Sarasota & Manatee is as simple and straightforward as it is exceedingly rare in our culture:
“To Further God’s Kingdom Through Example and Service.”
I completely understand that telling this truth is risky in our culture, where overt Christ followers are often vilified and openly ridiculed with impunity. That’s okay . . . “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15
Unfortunately, those who do not know Jesus Christ often distort the true meaning of his message, which was simple, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Mark 12:31.
So, does this mean that we are the perfect property management company? No. Does it mean that we never make a mistake? No. Does it mean that we are not fallen people with all of the same foibles and shortcomings that other equally human beings have? Of course not.
All it means is that we seek to please God in what we do by loving those whom we serve in his name, and if we do mess-up, we apologize and we make amends. It also means that we use our money to help others, through such organizations as City Commit, Gator Wilderness Camp, Compassion International, and Church 360.
A true Christ follower comes to learn over time that all are the beloved children of God — black, white, straight, gay, married, unmarried — all are deserving of the truth and love of Jesus Christ.
Integrity and transparency are necessary for any relationship to last, so as we seek to build relationships with our owners, tenants, vendors, and community at large, I thought it only fair to put my beliefs out there. After all, it’s the very reason why we are in business.
