For more than 35 years, we’ve been passionate about achieving better results for our clients.
We manage all types of residential rental properties including condominiums (condos) , single family homes, town homes, multiplexes and apartment buildings.
No. We align ourselves with our clients by not charging management fees during vacancies. This ensures that everyone is as motivated as possible to lease the property.
We have a standardized process for introducing ourselves to tenants. We deliver welcome packages to each of your tenants letting them know that the owners have decided to enlist our services. Our packages detail the benefits they can expect in working with us as we assume the owners responsibilities and give tenants multiple methods to contact us.
Tenants change jobs, get married, have kids, buy homes… they move. We plan for vacancies from the start by ensuring that our contracts require adequate notice when a tenant decides to move. Upon tenant notification of their plans to move our standard contracts allow us to install lockboxes, for lease signs and fliers, list the property on the MLS, and show the property. We retain all of our marketing tools from previous listings and are able to get to work finding a new tenant quickly. By planning ahead we are able to get a head start on the change in tenants and limit vacancies.
Our accounting and payment processes help us to encourage tenants to pay on a regular schedule, allowing us to know when there is a problem early (in most cases before tenant payments are late). Generally, if we have not received payment by the 3rd of the month we contact the tenant to discuss. If we have not received payment by the 5th a late payment is assessed, we prepare a 3 Day Notice to pay or Quit, and contact the tenant to let them know the notice will be delivered the following day. We deliver the notice via email and registered agent service. In the rare event that rent payment has not been delivered by the 9th we assist our landlord in contracting legal services to immediately start the eviction process. In general we have found that by maintaining good tenant relationships we are able to avoid these problems.
