About this pro

How does your business stand out?

Our services stand out because we believe in treating people fairly, and respectfully. We work everyday to fine tune our business. When we want to grow, the first step is to ask, what can I do to service and care for what I have already received in an even better way. After doing that growth is all but destined. ---- We charge what the job is worth. This is why you will never pay a full month's rent to lease a unit; that is highway robbery! Also, we appreciate your business - if you have multiple properties, we give you a discount; if you refer someone one, we give you a referral fee. ---- We are accountable and honest. Not perfect, but ever striving to reach the mark. ----- We make it so the only thing you have to do is collect your rental funds - which of course will just show up in your account :-). We handle everything: we can pay your HOA fee, yearly property taxes, find you a great deal on home insurance and even sending you what your CPA needs for taxes.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

----- We enjoy whenever possible making all parties involved in the management and rental process happy! While our clients interest come first, we strive to find a balance that allows tenants to stay in the homes for many years, which keeps our clients expenses down quite considerably.

    I had John helping me manage a few of my properties. One thing that I like about John the most is that he treats the properties as if his own. Therefore, he never hesitated to go extra miles to find the most reasonable options for different repair jobs, and dealing with different parties for me. His pricing is very reasonable as well, so I would recommend John to anyone.

    Premier Properties has been very professional in getting my property rented. They have worked tirelessly working around my current tenant's difficult schedule that I had put in myself to make sure that the property was shown and rented as quickly as possible. They worked with me to provide specific a-la-carte services that I asked for, making my tenant placement and management process truly custom, all at a great rate. I strongly recommend them.

    Hi I made the initial contact with John and my husband have been mostly communicating with him. However, i have to say that the experience we have been having so far have been great. We look forward to partner with him on the rental of our home. He was been able to help us rent the property very quickly. Thank you John.

    Great experience Thus Far
    Premier Properties is Extremely straight forward and takes its time explaining the process to new investment property owners like myself. The website portal keeps documents/receipts for view to keep things organized. Great experience thus far.

    I did not actually end up employing Premier because our situation changed but let me tell you - the conversations I had with John Richardson were impressive. He is attentive and on top of things. If the situation ever changes and we need a rental agency, we will definitely be giving our business to him. He put our needs above his own and that is a rare and beautiful thing.

    After reviewing 5 other management companies, I am thankful that John with premier properties was one of them. John has been incredibly professional, informative and has gone way over and above job description and responsibilities making it easier for me being out of state. His company and all expectations are clearly outlined and defined thru out his excellent Web site, making everything transparent. I'm happy feeling secure in knowing my investments are being cared for while I'm 2500 miles away.

    John is doing an excellent job with the transition of management responsibilities so that I no longer have to deal with very time consuming and stressful issues of rent collection, maintenance/repairs and dealing with the tenants, overall. I am looking forward to working with him and his company.

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Management Services Fees/Pricing Tenant Placement Fee ($350-850)* – Monthly Management Fee for 1-5 properties (8% of monthly rent) *Discounts in management fees for landlords/owners with 6 or more properties. (6%) *$100 off of management services with each referral Lease Renewal Fee ($75 of the first month’s rent) – Court Filings ($50 initial - $15 additional) – Eviction Oversight Services ($250) Miscellaneous Services ($75 or less) - In some instances, it is necessary for the agent to perform duties, outside the normal management agreement, including, but not limited to obtaining recorded deeds, attending tax assessor meetings, secure buildings due to break ends or security alarm calls after hours. This will result in a fee $75. A full accounting of billable hours shall be provided to the owner(s). *** Distance of homes may slightly affect some of the cost above by $10-$15
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
When we gain a new client, the first step is to see where they are in the process. Wha have they expreinced that they didn't like or what was good that they want to carry into the future. We provide a detailed list of everything we need from them, and while obtaining it we go through all current records on file for tenants if any be present. Upon review we make sure records are updated and the owner is well protected in the event the tenant fails to pay rent - we garnish wages. During this process we make sure our client is familiar with our systems and we answer any questions they may have and do our best to ensure they are comfortable and happy and feel they are in good hands.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Before and during the transition into real estate I was a teacher for 8 years. That experience has just added to my ability to work with all people of all backgrounds. It has gifted me with the ability to make difficult things clear to others and develop abounding patience. Outside of that I have played every role involved in the management process personally since 2008 - when I assign an assistant or representative I know first hand what they need to do, how it should be done and ensure they perform just as well but preferably even better than I had done when doing their assigned task.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I actually got started by purchasing my own home; I personally have a few investments now. Once purchasing, I rented out the rooms why I too resided in one. From there a simple ad on craiglist and several educational courses has led to a bountiful blessing in property management. I have always had positions where service is key!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
My advice to future clients :-) is to understand no two management companies are the same. We may perform similar if not the exact same functions, but how we go about accomplishing them makes a world of difference. Pay attention to the nature of the man or woman you hire and do your best to determine if they are of good character. Be sure they provide actual receipts and are not upcharging you on every job to make up from advertised "discounts".
