A word on fees

As good as the above comparison may look to you (and your bank account), it is critical to understand, Brickleys does not compete on fees.In other words, we are not trying to be the cheapest option as a way to gain your business. We do try to be the option with the most value.

Trying to undercut the competition will always lead to burn-out and ultimately your property will suffer from substandard services.Trying to bloat the services (or pretend there are different acceptable levels of service to offer) in order to charge more is not fair to you.

While our fees may be affected by individual market conditions, broader economic factors and evolving industry standards, we will always be clear, transparent and fair.

* Business models and fee structures can change. Some competitors may offer more features or fewer fees than respresented here. However, we have found the above representations to be a fair picture of the industry in general. The fact is, it is difficult to change operations if you've been doing it one way for many years. Unless you build a business around an adaptive mentality (like we did), it is easy to get stuck in "this is how it's always been done".

Furthermore, our features and fees are subject to change. We just won't do it without clearly communicating it to our customers. Our goal is always to offer the most value in the services you get. Rest assured, if something changes, you will benefit either directly or indirectly. We aren't in the habit of charging for things for the sake of it. So, be sure to talk to your local office to make sure you have the latest information (our website staff may have been slow with an update).
