We use a broad range of advertising methods including signs, flyers, newspaper classifieds, e-mail, and select internet web sites.
We want reliable and qualified tenants just as much as you do and we pride ourselves on the quality of tenants we are able to attract. Our extensive tenant screening and lease procedures help to ensure this.
We do a thorough credit check before the lease is signed. This includes checking history with the credit bureau, verifying employment and checking all appropriate references, including past landlords.
We provide you with protection through the use of proper lease agreements, deposit forms, late notices, and other legal documents.

INQUIRE ABOUT OUR SERVICES
Rent is due on the first of each month, with late notices sent at the appropriate intervals, and removal proceedings are initiated if the tenant does not make immediate payment arrangements. Delinquent rents are subject to late penalties.
Our monthly management fee is payable when the rent payment is received. It is automatically deducted from your account at the time the rent payment is posted. However, since one of our jobs is keeping your property occupied, there will be no management fee as long as your property remains vacant.
Vacancies are expensive for both of us so we make every effort to keep vacancies to a minimum.
If a tenant chooses to vacate, the property must pass a thorough check-out survey before the tenant is released from the Lease Agreement and the security deposit is returned. This minimizes the preparation and turn-around time before your property is re-leased. The survey will not be made until the tenant has removed all furnishings and other personal belongings, and the tenant is not allowed to re-enter the property once the survey is complete.
We are obligated to afford the maximum protection to your property. Frequent drive-by surveys are made to observe that property exteriors are well maintained on the outside, and annual internal surveys, as authorized by the owners management agreement, are made by our property management representatives. Where inconsistencies are noted, tenants are notified of necessary corrective action and the owner is advised.
Thorough, complete documentation is an important part of good property management. It prevents confusion, misunderstandings, and gives everyone involved a clear understanding of what is expected. Written documentation is used to screen and lease, survey and maintain property condition, and report financial information to you.
The Property Management contract defines our working relationship with property owners and is specific regarding obligations and responsibilities of both parties.
Each tenant is required to complete a detailed Rental Application as a basis for general screening and rental reference checking.
A Lease Agreement is required between our office and tenants which outlines tenant responsibilities in accordance with company and owner requirements.
Property is thoroughly surveyed at the time of rental, with tenants and management attesting to physical condition, appearance, etc., and a Property Condition report is filed.
In the event of non-payment or other specific violations of the Lease Agreement, tenants are sent an official “Notice to Vacate or take immediate corrective action.”
Management renders a Statement of Account to property owners each month which summarizes accounting transactions and accompanies payment checks.
