Sheila Hall is our Director of Accounting and an Agent Assistant. She is responsible for collecting funds, paying vendors, sending monthly checks/statements to the owners as well as real estate clerical work such as late letters and filling out the forms for any evictions that we may be required to do. Sheila inputs new properties/owners/tenants into our software system and is responsible for sending the Property Management Agreements to Owners and the Leases to tenants! As an aside, Sheila is an avid cross-stitcher and does diamond dotting. (If you don’t know what that is, just ask her! I’m sure she’d love to tell or show you!)
Gordon Baker is our Property Manager. He is the one to meet a new owner at a property to assess its validity as a rental investment. He determines what improvements must be accomplished to acquire the largest rental income per month and assists by researching a monthly rental value based on comps in the area. Gordon handles the maintenance for your investment and is your “go to” person for both owners and tenants. He’s a licensed Realtor who lists investment homes for sale if you are ready to close out this part of life. Words about Gordon – he has the gift of calm in calamity – it must be from hanging with all his grandkids!
Scott Lax is our Property Assessor. He assists the company by doing the annual walkthroughs of each rental unit at about the 9th month of the lease. He takes photos of the properties, checks that the smoke detectors/carbon detectors are functioning and confirms that the HVAC filters are being changed. He is working to protect your investments. Scott is a personable individual who is a former schoolteacher and is also a current bus driver. Scott has a new love in his life, his first grandchild!!!

Len Moss has been a Realtor with Gates for many years. He teaches and eases the fears of first-time home buyers (or even those who have not purchased in a long time) as he walks you through the process of buying or selling. Real Estate rules and regs sometimes change annually so he keeps up with that knowledge for your protection. Len enjoys researching values for your home, land or commercial properties. His relaxation is reading novels and walking (outside or on the treadmill in his office). His collection of books continually changes as he purchases new novels and passes them on as he donates them to charities afterwards.
Murray Baldwin has been in real estate for many years. He is not only a Realtor, but a cattle farmer so he knows lots about farms, houses, and land. When you hear his voicemail saying he is “out in the field” that could be either the real estate field or the “real” field. Feel free to contact Murray with your real estate needs.
