About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I have been a property manager for over 38 years and never an eviction. I perform far beyond the call of my duties and strive to keep a good relationship with all tenants and landlords. I have my own renovation and property preparation crew to maximize the condition of property before it is rented at a rate of only $30 per hour. I can provide many great references from my happy landlords.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I like solving problems and matching tenants with good properties suitable for them. I take my service seriously and have never had a complaint from a tenant or a landlord. A walk through of the property twice per year really pays off to know how your home is being maintained.

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My pricing system is pretty standard in the industry for seeking and placing tenants in a property. However, I go the extra mile on all counts in doing what most property managers, agents or brokers will perform for that standard fee. If I have to wash the windows myself or haul the debris away I am happy to get the job done. Please call me to discuss the pricing system and what it entails. You will be very pleased I know I go far beyond the call of duty with out additional compensation for my time, effort and expense.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Look for someone with high integrity and longevity for experience in this field. It does not have to be a nightmare to own a rental property if you have the right assistance in screening for tenants and good management.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
It is important for my customers to know I make all decisions in their best interest and work with the highest of integrity. There are times when I personally will take a loss to protect my clients and keep them happy which in turn makes a win win situation. I have been in business for over 38 years and that is a lot of expertise and experience that is very valuable to all.
