Property Management

Our property management business is built around you and your needs, giving you the time to focus on what matters most in your life.

Whether you want to be hands-on, just receive a monthly check and statement, or something in between, the decision is yours.

We’re interested in building long-term relationships with our clients, not just short-term profits.

Here’s what differentiates us from the rest:

  • We’re always available, including evenings and weekends, when owners and tenants need us the most
  • For owners who do not want full-service management, we offer tenant placement services at a flat rate
  • We provide periodic checkups and inspections. Owners will receive a text message with a picture of their properties from a drive-by
  • We try hard to keep our fees to a minimum. No fees for contract cancellation and no yearly fees
  • No upcharges on repairs
  • We work at saving you money and finding ways to maximize your return on investment
  • Utilizing advanced property management software, we are able to provide you with detailed statements each month, including secure online access for tenants to make their rent payments
  • We ensure inspections, maintenance, collecting rents, dealing with late payments, lease terminations, and other such matters, are handled legally and without discrimination
  • Bobby understands all aspects of construction and maintenance, and will personally inspect and call for repairs, reporting back to each owner directly
  • You’ll be directly working with the owners of the business
  • Our experience in property management will help reduce unexpected costs that may come up

If you’re considering a change from your current property management company, contact X2 and we’ll make the transition as easy and smooth as possible for you. When you’re ready to make the switch, give us a call and we’ll set up a free consultation.

We value long-term relationships, not just short-term profits

Real Estate

When it comes to real estate you will get an unsurpassed advantage when you choose X2. You will be directly working with the owners, Bobby and Monika, who have looked at and sold thousands of properties since 2003.

Their experience and expertise are unparalleled. A deep understanding of complex rules and laws in real estate undeniably sets them apart from the rest.

Bobby, a skilled and experienced individual in construction, is more than familiar when it comes to a home needing repair. He himself will personally check on any needed repair on your home and negotiate the best price with our remarkably skilled contractors and construction professionals.

Differentiators making us unique in the real estate market: 

  • Our sales strategy
  • Staging expertise
  • We coordinate open houses with your schedule
  • Professional type photographs
  • When your listing lands on the Multiple Listing website (RMLS), it will automatically post on major real estate websites such as Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia, Movoto, RealEstate.com, RealtyTrac.com, Xome.com, Estately, and search engines such as Google
  • We negotiate hard for you, ensuring the transaction goes as smooth as possible, and closes on time


  • We personally evaluate properties daily for your search (not auto generated)
  • We show properties including on Saturdays, Sundays and evenings
  • Tough negotiators for repairs

Experience Counts!

Private: X2 vs 1% Fees

The first step in understanding a 1% listing fee is to learn how real estate brokers (also known as agents) are paid. With most transactions, the average commission is 5-6% of the sale price and that amount is divided between the buyer’s and seller’s agents.

Advertisements that say you can sell your house for 1% of the sale price fail to mention that you pay the buyer’s agent’s commission. This commission is usually around 2.25%. Many services listed may not be included or may result in additional fees/charges/costs and directly impact how quickly your home will sell. Often times, these companies focus on the number of transactions that can be performed over the quality of those transactions.

The bottom line is you get what you pay for and every transaction starts and ends with a broker negotiating for you. When it comes to the biggest financial transaction in most people’s lives, a broker’s experience is what you are paying for.

Your 1% broker is going to compete with experienced brokers. Poor negotiations, bad sales strategies, pricing the house improperly, not understanding repairs on the house and not negotiating them properly, even something as simple as bad photographs, improper staging or any combination thereof can cost thousands of dollars.

Would you use a cheap surgeon for your by-pass surgery? Would you use an inexperienced lawyer to represent you in court? Or purchase a Groupon for your Lasiks? So why would you use a cut-rate realtor to represent you for one of your largest investments of your life?

Meet Our Team

Monika Bean
Owner, Designated Broker
Cell: 360-931-2929

I was born and raised in Switzerland. There I enjoyed an affluent career in the Swiss banking management industry for many years.

While vacationing on Maui in 1999 I met my husband Bobby. While living on Maui I was a contact agent for many rentals, which sparked my interest in the real estate industry.

After a few tropical years we eventually ended moving to the state of Washington. Having had a fondness for the real estate industry I followed my passion and acquired my real estate license in 2003. I immediately realized that this was the career for me.

I enjoyed many very successful years as a broker in the Clark County area, however, I knew that the ultimate goal was to open up our own firm. That dream came true in 2014, Bobby and I started X2 and haven’t looked back since.

I exceed at what I love to do. I am extremely detail oriented and reliable. I am fluent in English and German. I communicate every step of the process clearly with all my clients and my number one goal is to ensure all timelines are met.

When I’m not working, I enjoy gardening, attending weekly Zumba classes, watching movies, taking my classic Mustang on drives and spending time with my family and our beloved cat Bailey.

Looking forward to meeting you!

I bring over 30 years of sales and service in small businesses.
As owner and broker of X2 Realty and X2 Property Management I organize operations, rentals, pre-screening, repairs and negotiate for both real estate and property management.
My strengths as a communicator and organizer are used with tenants, owners, buyers and sellers.
Whether it is dealing with a single unit for rent or a large beautiful house for sale I will make every transaction as easy as possible.
My experience with minor plumbing, electrical and most home repairs make it nice for owners, whether renting, buying or selling.
I will get a first-hand inspection involving any problems. This is an advantage when negotiating for repairs in real estate, sales or hiring sub-contractors in property management.
As for fun I collect old marbles; bike ride and when I have time wrench on a classic car. You can find me on a Maui vacation every winter.

I am the newest member of the X2 Reality and Property management team and couldn’t be more excited. I am the daughter of Bobby and Monika. I too grew up in Switzerland and then spent a few sun and fun filled years on Maui. After graduating high school, I attended Clark College. After graduating I continued my studies at Portland State University.

For the past ten years I’ve worked in a customer-based position and been enjoying it immensely, which is why I ended up choosing real estate and property management as my career. I love interacting with people and I enjoy helping others. In the real estate industry, I get to do both, and I value that tremendously.

When I’m not working, I enjoy traveling, playing flag football, working out, painting and drawing, watching movies, antique shopping, spending time with family and friends, cooking and eating.

I am full of life and motivated. I am driven and I’m ready to help you find your dream home! Excited to meet each and every one of you.
