Introduction: Fort Lowell is a family-owned and run company that's been open since 1981. We service over 550 management clients between Phoenix and Tucson. Our most loyal clients have worked with other management companies and found us to be the best overall experience and operators for their properties. Our average occupancy rate is above 95%, even during Covid-19. Our rent collection rate remains around 95% as well, which is far higher than the national average given the current circumstances. We have grown and maintained our client list because we excel at giving out clients two main benefits: Less Headaches Better Performance This is because we will not only manage the property, but will also maintain your property with our in-house maintenance crews; ensuring a properly run investment property. And if you're new to renting, you should know that annual maintenance expenses can quickly cost twice as much as management fees. We charge 8%-10% of the gross rents for our management fee, depending on city and property size. We do not charge company fees to evict a tenant or if the tenant renews. If an issue arises we simply handle it. Our managers will lease your home, ensuring the manager actually knows who is moving into your property and who they will be working with for years to come. Our more personalized approach with tenants creates better relationships. This usually results in: better rent collection rates, lower turnover costs (huge savings), and a generally better environment that we can operate within when emergencies arise. Additionally, if the day comes that you want to sell, then we have a buyer network that we can present it to that can generate a great deal quickly, giving you a better overall return and experience. We are happy to send you our management contract and additional information packet so that you can better make an informed decision.

Bob was my buyer's agent and helped guide me through the home buying process in purchasing my first house. He was excellent in providing comps for the neighborhood and is very prompt and knowledgeable of the Phoenix Metro Area, along with his expertise in property management. I would use him again and recommend to colleagues.

Excellent in helping me find a house, very knowledgeable about property management in the Phoenix Metro Area. Even when things weren't looking up, Bob was on top of everything and got us into our first home. Would recommend to friends and family!

I am very impressed with how the properties are managed. It was extremely comforting that I was able to sit down with Mr. Collopy within days of my inquiry. Bob was always punctual, professional, and flexible around my schedule. After consulting with Mr. Collopy I now have a stronger foundation in my understanding of what to look for when considering options in owning property. He went out of his way to make everything as easy as possible for me and my understanding; it is more than appreciated.

I would highly recommend Fort Lowell Realty & Property Management. I am new to investment properties, but I was able to learn a lot from their educational content in articles and well-made videos. I am excited to see the future content they produce and expand my property investment knowledge repertoire. They will lead you in the right directions, because they care about the people they work with.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    They should understand that management fees, in reality, are not the main factor when trying to maximize your returns on your property. Below are the main factors that can be influenced by your management company. Income Occupancy - Our occupancy rates are 95%, during Covid-19. This is higher than average market. If we rent your home just one month longer than our competitor, then we've already essentially paid for ourselves. Expenses: Maintenance - There must be a maintenance department in the company if you want to ensure that there's an active role and understanding when overseeing maintenance issues with your property. Having "preferred vendors" is no substitute. Turnovers: You want as few turnovers as possible because that means less leasing fees, higher occupancy and less turnover costs for the unit itself. That why having a property manager who actually leased with your tenant and talks to your tenant matters. Through a better relationship with the manager and with our superior maintenance performance your tenant will have less reasons to move.
