- Why should I rent from your company?
We are a professional, knowledgeable, and courteous property management company. We work very hard to provide the highest quality resident services you'll ever experience.
We use professional vendors (painters, handymen, plumbers, carpet cleaners, etc) to ensure that your unit is in good condition. We inspect the work performed to ensure that everything is ready before you move in.
We are available 24 hours a day to handle emergency maintenance repairs.
We provide detailed Move-in and Move-out Inventory forms for proper documentation of the condition of your rental.
All deposits that are retained by us are kept in a FDIC insured bank.
When you sign your lease, you have a meeting with your property manager to go over all parts of the lease to help ensure that everyone is aware of their responsibilities under the lease.
All our property managers are licensed real estate professionals according to state requirements.
- How do I apply to rent?
Check out our application guidelines to be sure you qualify, then complete our application form and submit it to us along with the application fee for the home you want. We'll process it and let you know the results.
- Will I sign a lease?
Yes, for most of our properties you will sign a 12 month lease that covers our responsibilities to each other throughout our tenancy. We will go over each part of the lease to ensure you understand it. After your application is accepted, your deposit is received, and your lease is signed, we'll hand you the keys to your home!

- What happens if something needs to be fixed in the home I'm renting?
When you come across a maintenance problem, please place an online maintenance request under the Tenants tab. Please be very specific about what the problem is so we can send out the right vendor the first time (i.e., CORRECT – the right front burner on the stove does not work; INCORRECT – the stove is not working). We understand that non-working items can be a headache to deal with so we will make every effort to address your concern as quickly as possible. Management will contact a vendor as directed by the owner. You will be contacted by the vendor for an appointment time.
- Will I get my deposit back when I move out?
Yes, the security deposit will be refundable upon an acceptable move out inspection. Upon your move in, you will be given a move in inspection form – available under the Resources tab too. Please take the time to go over this and make any notes or comments being as detailed as possible. As per Lines 274-275, you must return this form within 5 days of your move in. This form is important as it will accompany our inspection and assist us in determining your security deposit
