We will advise you on any practical changes and improvements that will help you attain your maximum rental value and attract a quality tenant.
We perform extensive move-in surveys for every property and thoroughly document the property condition with digital photos. We do the same at move-out to assess damages and repairs. Depending on the length of the lease additional inspections may be performed at 6 month intervals.

All rent proceeds are will be paid out to you via Direct Deposit on a monthly basis. Should the tenant fail to make immediate arrangements for rent payment, eviction proceedings are initiated and notices are mailed.
A lease renewal is often the best choice for an expiring lease. Vacancies, marketing, turnover maintenance and leasing fees cost can be avoided by renewing the lease with a quality tenant who pays rent on time and takes care of your property. Our leases are structured to minimize month-to-month tenants while keeping rent costs at market level.
Our maintenance services are overseen and monitored 24/7 by our experienced office staff. They will determine which of our preferred independent contractors to send to the property, whether it is a plumber, HVAC technician, water extraction specialist, etc. Based on the findings of the maintenance team, we will recommend actions that are in your best interest to limit damage to the property, personal harm, and/or unhealthy conditions while minimizing unnecessary costs. We do not charge an additional service fee and all independent contractor charges are discounted to us and passed on to you transparently in the form of original invoices.
