What Makes Wave Property Management Different?

What Makes Wave Property Management Different?

It all started when Joy, an established accounting professional, noticed her clients needed better management for their investment properties. WAVE was created with this foundational understanding: Effective management requires accurate, transparent, and detailed accounting.
It requires trust. 

Wave Property Management has been a growing success story for over a decade. We help our clients accomplish their investment goals. We see ourselves as members of your team - helping you build your financial security while providing an essential service to Boise.

We use cutting edge software to enhance both the owner and resident experience. In this extremely fast-growing area, scarcity has made the need for fair and consistent management even more important.

Joy Luedtke CEO

Joy co-founded an accounting firm in 2008 using a fully online format, the first of its kind in Boise. This virtual accounting model leveraged the best in technology and software maximizing time for servicing a large variety of clients including construction and asset management. As demand grew for services, a property management company was started in 2013 with offices in Boise and Ketchum, Idaho. With an internal pull towards development in affordable housing, Joy separated from her accounting firm in 2019 and started several companies in development and mobile transport to begin crafting a suite of companies that complement her property management firm.

Much of Joy’s expertise lies in manufactured home communities. As a property manager, Joy could see that most manufactured homes were “aging out” of the market. With an aging housing infrastructure, and the burdens that come with that, Joy began extensively researching housing options for her residents, only to find that solutions for this income bracket were missing. With a keen understanding of the high profitability for investors in these communities, coupled with needs of the residents for better housing options, she began to consider financial opportunities that would provide real solutions to our communities through the development of modular units. Joy’s personal mission is to build leaders and create opportunities. This has empowered staff to buy their first homes and even begin their own investment portfolios. Her passion for entrepreneurship led her to a board position within Entrepreneur Organization Idaho, where she coaches budding entrepreneurs.

Virginia’s career began with a degree in Business and Office Administration.

“I wanted to find a job that inspired me. When I interviewed at Wave, Joy said something that got my attention, “Everyone deserves a home.” Her assertion resonated deeply with my desire to assist others. This sentiment became my guiding principle here, allowing me to contribute to the fulfillment of people's need for a place to call home.

For us, this is more than just a business, it's a way to open doors for people in need. I enjoy working for her, and the people I work with, and I love doing my job.

I have three children: My daughter Karina, who is happily married with two wonderful children.

My son Christian, an aspiring officer in pursuit of joining the Boise police department; and my youngest son, who is nearing completion of his medical studies. These exceptional individuals bring blessings to my life, and fuel my dedication to making a positive impact in property management.”
