Claude LaBaw sm.jpg

Claude LaBaw | Principal

Before they relocated to southern Oregon over 20 years ago, Claude and Ginny worked together in a successful real estate property rental business in California reinforcing their skillset.

 

With Claude showing very strong with over 50 successful rehabilitation and renovation projects to his credit, all preparing him well to manage a property rental company for an associate.

Claude has over 30 years of experience, including land advisory, evictions and turnovers. When asked what he likes most about property management he says, “it’s working directly with the tenants and owners”.

Ginny LaBaw sm.jpg

Ginny LaBaw | Principal

Ginny started out as an aerospace cost analysist, training others and watching them rise to the top, putting Ginny, a single mother with two children in an untenable situation. She tested the established rules and spoke to the management.

Not surprisenly, nothing changed. With tenacity, Ginny changed the course herself by taking the initiative to research, study and earn her real estate license. From there she became familiar with the many types of real estate services she could lean into. Property management tempted her.

 

Armed with over 35 years of experience including real estate, property management, escrow and property maintenance and especially, her ever-bright-smile, Ginny is more than ready to help.

Believing in her mission, she is often heard saying “people matter.” Her specific role in the company is managing finances and greeting new clients on behalf of the talented team at My Favorite Property Manager, her longtime dream.

Cheryl is one of the first points of contact at My Favorite Property Manager. With, four years of property management experience, starting in the maintenance segment, her experience makes her perfect for her present position as Office Manager, by preparing her to know what questions to ask and procedures to follow while directing the client to the correct staff member.

 

Being a Grandmother of six and mother of four daughters, she understands the importance of working on a schedule but also being able to have some flexibility.

 

Cheryl is multi-faceted in her duties, answering phones and greeting walk-ins to their office on Crater Lake Avenue.

Prior to working with MFPM, she owned and operated her own property management service. Berta was born and raised in Josephine County on a dairy farm.

Abby Rodgers sm.jpg

Abbye Rodgers | Maintenance Coordinator

Abbye carries an associate’s degree in Risk Management, making her a great choice as Maintenance Coordinator. She spent 15 of her 18 years in the role of accident and maintenance investigation.

Abbye enjoys the ability to keep properties in good repair and operating efficiently. She believes in doing her best and being honest in her representation of the company.

Roberta Gudeman SM.jpg

The process of writing an Operations Manual is not for the faint of heart as Roberta is aware of. With 34 years of experience in healthcare and administration, she has written her share of manuals.

 

She has brought that technical experience to My Favorite Property Manager and has begun the process of putting together their very own Operations Manual. The manual promotes consistency among the team and removes any guess work on how procedures will be handled and by whom.

 

Roberta enjoys meeting the customers as one of the faces for the company. Her special talent is solving problems and then streamlining them.

Connie Sickler sm.jpg

Connie Sickler | Bookkeeper

With bookkeeping experience spanning over 25 years, it makes sense that Connie would love her work. Fortunately, she also loves the Team, “watching the numbers” and the flexibility of her work hours, making the perfect combination.

 

Connie knows the company well, being with the MFPM from the inception. Previous to MFPM she used her bookkeeping talents with a non-profit and also her church. At MFPM She specializes in the trust accounts for owners and rent disbursements.

 

Even though this is the first time she’s worked with a property management company, she appreciates that the guesswork is gone. “Number seven is always a seven”, stay it the same. She is competent, early to arrive and a pleasure to work with.
