Avenue Real Estate Group has been a fantastic management company for a rental I have in St. Louis. They found my first tenant in just days, took care of everything efficiently during the tenants time in the house, and have repeated their performance with my second tenant. Screening, collecting rent, maintenance - everything was a breeze. I will use them for all future tenants.

Dan and Catie helped me find my first investment property and Dan pointed out all the repairs it would need since he has a lot of experience as a real estate investor. Catie helped me to negotiate a great purchase price and Dan provided me with some contacts after the sale that could help me with the rehab. Great people

My wife and I had to relocate out of State for work and needed help renting our home. After researching and interviewing several Property Management companies, it was obvious to us that Danielle and Avenue Property Management were the most qualified. Danielle has made our experience stress free and our property has always been rented to quality tenants and has never been vacant. We highly recommend Danielle and Avenue to our friends who are thinking about renting their properties. P. Wollbrinck - St. Peters, MO

Ivy was very professional and knowledgeable. She really worked with my wife and I to find the best possible fit for our relocation to the St. Louis area. Her neighborhood expertise was invaluable. It was essential we had an agent that was very familiar with the area and more specifically the schools in each area. We looked at several homes and she was extremely patient with us throughout the entire process. I would definitely recommend Ivy to all my friends and associates for real estate needs in the St. Louis area.

The investments in real estate can offer excellent financial opportunities and personal satisfaction, but they require careful selection and consistent, high-quality management. Management of the real estate is a service industry where a myriad of daily services must be routinely provided in order to effectively address the needs of the property owner. The primary functions of Deca Realty Company as a property manager are the following: * Achieve the objectives of the property owner * Generate income for the owner * Preserve or increase the value of the investment property Formulating the management plan: Prior to embarking on a management assignment, the professionals at Deca Realty formulate a management plan for the property. This is done after the careful analysis of the market and the individual property as well as the analysis of the owner's objectives. This management plan becomes the blueprint upon which the property management assignment is carried out. The ultimate goal is to provide each individual owner a management plan which fits his/her needs. In other words, some owners want to retain a large degree of input into the management of their property, while others, because of the lack of time or knowledge, want our professionals to handle all facets in the management of their property. Depending on the owner's objectives, the management plan may include the following: * Tenant Screening * Lease Negotiations * Advertising and Showing * Tenant Relations * Management Reports and Tax Reports * Marketing and Property Promotion * Maintenance and Renovation * 24-Hour Emergency Calls and Service * Risk Management and Insurance * Paying Bills, including Mortgage Payments, Utility Bills and Insurance * Insure Proper Maintenance The property management service fees: The fees charged for the property management services are a percentage of the gross rents collected. These fees are negotiated individually with each owner based on many factors, including the location of the building, vacancy rates and amenities offered. Also, a leasing fee is typically charged for vacant units.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a real estate agent do?

Real estate agents help their clients buy, sell, and rent commercial and residential properties. There are also real estate agents that sell industrial and agricultural real estate, but the majority sell residential properties. To become a real estate agent, you must be at least 18 years old, successfully complete real estate courses, and pass a real estate exam. Be sure to check for any required licensing, too. Often real estate agents will earn 5 percent to 6 percent of the total home sale price for their work in representing their client. Typically this commission is split equally between the buyer’s agent and the seller’s agent. Here is an overview of what a real estate agent does, according to the United States Department of Labor:

  • Represent clients who are looking to buy, sell and rent properties.
  • Stay knowledgeable about regional real estate prices, mortgages, market conditions and related information, and advise clients accordingly.  
  • Determine competitive market prices by comparing properties.
  • Create and publicize lists of properties for sale, including details such as location and features.
  • Market properties through advertisements, open houses and listing services.
  • Show prospective buyers or renters properties.
  • Present purchase offers to sellers for consideration.
  • Mediate negotiations between buyer and seller.
  • Ensure that all terms of purchase contracts are met.
  • Prepare documents, such as loyalty contracts, purchase agreements and deeds.

What should you look for in a real estate agent?

When you’re hiring a real estate agent you want to find a qualified pro who can negotiate the best deal for your home — whether you’re buying or selling. Reading reviews will help you weed out obvious bad operators; you want to work with someone who treats their clients with fairness and respect. That said, you also want someone who can play hardball and maximize your real estate deal. Ask for references from recent clients, and be sure to call them.

Experts encourage you to interview more than one prospective real estate agent before hiring. A home sale or home purchase is a big deal — sometimes the biggest deal in a person’s life — and you want to find an agent who will work hard for you. In today’s market, having a real estate agent who is social media savvy and has an attractive online presence is critical. Ask the agent how they plan to market your house. Review their listings, and ask yourself if they have professional photos with homes that are professionally staged. If the answer is no, they might not have the marketing savvy you’re looking for. Ask what price they would list your house at and why. Pay attention to how they communicate with you during your initial interviewing phase. Are they too busy to respond for several days? Are they clear and helpful? This information is a clue to how they’ll engage during the entire process.

What's the difference between a real estate broker and an agent?

Real estate agents and real estate brokers both help clients buy, sell, and rent residential and commercial properties. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, real estate brokers are licensed to manage their own real estate businesses. Real estate agents cannot have their own real estate office and must work under a broker. Real estate brokers often have real estate firms and employ real estate agents. Those real estate agents may be employees of the firm, or they may work on contract and earn part of any commission they bring into the firm.

If you are a homeowner ready to sell or a buyer in the market for a new home, either a real estate broker or a real estate agent can help you achieve your goal. What is more important than their title is their track record and client success stories. When interviewing real estate agents or brokers to help you buy or sell a home, ask about their recent sales history as compared with the original listing prices. If you’re selling a home, ask how they would market your home and what price they would list it at. Whether you hire an agent or broker, you want a professional who will have your best interests at heart.

What do real estate agents charge?

Real estate agents typically don’t charge a set rate to their clients, but rather earn a commission on the price of the final home sale. In traditional real estate, there is a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent. The two agents receive 5 percent to 6 percent of the final home sale price and split it evenly, meaning they each earn roughly 2.5 percent to 3 percent of the total home sale. If you are a home seller, you may have fees associated with the sale that are above and beyond the commission the agents earn. The real estate agent may have you pay marketing fees, MLS fees, early cancellation fees, or more. Always ask pricing details before signing a contract so you clearly understand your financial obligations. Here are some of the average (and common) costs that can arise when selling a home:

  • Home inspection: $200-$350 or more, depending on region.
  • Home appraisal: $250-$400 or more, depending on region.
  • Professional real estate photography: $275-$550 or more, depending on photographer, square footage of house, and special requests like sunset shots.
  • Closing costs: Often split between the seller and buyer. An average range for the buyer to pay is between 3 percent and 4 percent, with the seller paying a lower fee at 1 percent to 3 percent of the home’s price.
