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 third party vendors (painters, handymen, plumbers, carpet cleaners, etc) to ensure that your home 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 via the online maintenance request form.
  • We provide detailed Move-in and Move-out Inventory forms for proper documentation of the condition of your rental. This form gets sent to you along with the lease agreement and an additional copy can be printed from the Resources Tab. It is imperative that you return the form to us within 5 days of your lease start date. 
  • All deposits that are retained by us are kept in a FDIC insured bank.
  • When you receive your lease, usually via email, you can request to 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. We want to ensure you understand what you are signing. Do not hesitate to ask questions. 
  • All our property managers are licensed real estate professionals according to state requirements.

What happens if something needs to be fixed in the home I'm renting?
08-13-2015
05-24-2017

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. You will be responsible for making and keeping all appointments made. No show service calls will be billed to you when applicable.

Will I get my deposit back when I move out?

Yes, the refundable security deposit will be refunded upon an acceptable move out inspection. Upon your move in, you will be given a move in inspection form – also available under the Resources tab. Please take the time to go over this and make any notes or comments being as detailed as possible. As per Lines 273-279, 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 refund. Upon vacating, ensure you have done all required items as listed in your lease agreement and Tenant Handbook. This will ensure you receive your deposit back. When you return possession of the home, you will need to include the Key Return Form and provide a Forwarding Address. Once all inspections are complete and any required work has been ordered and completed, we will mail your deposit disposition to your forwarding address within 14 business days of returned possession.
