"Andrew and Vantage Realty exceeded my expectations. I was looking for someone to supervise accepting delivery of 1/2 a household of boxes while I was away. The vendor needed to be trustworthy, flexible, and have good judgment. The date & time were uncertain so he/she needed to be open to meeting the truck at a storage unit on short notice, use the gate code, supervise unloading and stacking in my unit, determine if items were broken, able to be trusted with the contents, install a lock & get the key to me. Additionally, the employee at the storage facilitywas difficult to communicate with because of limited English skills. Andrew suggested that he could provide a Mandarin speaking employee and have the unloading filmed, both good suggestions. Because he is licensed as a realtor, I felt he would be accountable. Andrew was wonderful about communicating clearly & in a timely manner. He set a mutually agreed time for a phone call, then had a capable employee follow up when was tied up. Everything went smoothly & he & his employee were always proactive. I think that his skills would transfer well to property management. The circumstances changed at the last minute & I did not need his services. He was gracious about this & prompt in refunding my partial payment. I would heartily recommend Andrew and his supporting staff for any real estate related needs!"

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a property management company do?

Property management companies manage the rental of residential homes, apartments, condos, commercial spaces and retail spaces. Property managers can oversee just a single unit or many properties, whether those sites are inhabited full-time or are vacation rentals. A property management company helps a property owner or landlord find tenants; collects rent; takes care of accounting, property maintenance and repairs; handles on-site management; and manages vacation rental check-in and checkout tasks. Although many property owners or landlords successfully manage their own rental real estate, a property management company can help you handle tenant issues and maintenance problems, especially if you are not located in the same city or state. Most property management companies deal with tenants directly, and their tasks include:

  • Marketing the rental property
  • Collecting rent
  • Handling repair problems
  • Responding to tenant complaints
  • Evicting tenants  

A property management company may be a good choice for property owners who have several investment properties, live far away from the rental property, or don’t have time for hands-on management.

Do property managers need to be licensed?

The licensing requirements for property managers vary from state to state, but many states require property managers to have a real estate broker’s license and in some cases be a legal resident of a state. Property management may not be specified in a state real estate statute, but according to the Institute of Real Estate Management their activities may include advertising the availability of a rental property, discussing a property management agreement with an owner, negotiating leases, showing a rental property and collecting rents.

Why is property management important?

A property management company can be a landlord’s greatest asset. As a neutral third party, the property manager handles the day-to-day operations of a real estate investment, from a single vacation home to a large apartment building or several rental properties. A property management company can be especially helpful to landlords who own several units and can’t manage each of them individually, or those who live too far from their investment properties to meet with renters and oversee maintenance. Property management is particularly important if your rentals are part of an affordable housing program. To receive financial assistance from the government, the landlord must comply with a complicated set of rules; property management companies should have both experience and expertise in complying with the rules specific to each housing program.
