About this pro

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

In any given month, as many as 20% of our customers were "self-directed" property managers. They are now customers for Paramount Realty Solutions because the cost of self-directed management is often double or triple the cost of using a competent property manager. What we like most about our job is helping Owners of rental properties avoid expensive mistakes and quickly recovering from a mistake they already made during the self-directed management program. Restoring confidence in Owning rental property is a lot of fun!

    Recommend Avoiding
    Paramount did a good job finding us a good tenant. However, Paramount did a terrible job managing the property. The only thing that Paramount has regularly done is collect rents and take their fees. We have had to ask or remind Paramount to perform all other basic management functions. Moreover, the tenant has directly complained to us about Paramount. We strongly recommend avoiding Paramount as a property manager. More information about our negative experience will be publicly available soon. We would not be surprised if Paramount responds to this posting by attempting to deflect our criticism by blaming us or blaming other people or blaming the circumstances. Paramount simply does not understand the principles of good customer service, professionalism, or accepting responsibility.

    I interviewed a couple management companies, but I was very impressed with Fred. I have used Paramount for over three years now and they make my life much easier. I do not have the time to manage two properties, but I am enjoying the benefits of being a landlord with their help!

    I decided to to rent my house and Paramount Realty has made the entire process quick and easy for me. Working with Fred and Shawn has been great to find a renter for my house and I look forward to working with them now that we have found a tenant. If you are looking for help renting your house I would suggest giving Paramount a call.

    Thanks Jesse, even in an off time of year I am happy that we were able to quickly locate a qualified tenant.

    Paramount has been very attentive and communication has been great. We are pleased that we chose this firm to manage our rental property and would not hesitate to recommend them to other property owners and/or prospective tenants..

    Hey Sherri, We appreciate you taking the time to connect with us at this platform and for your kind recommendation.

    Every staff member was friendly and professional as they helped me find a renter. I liked the clear, complete directions given when I had to carry out landlord duties.
    Fred F. Dec 4, 2015

    Dear Gen, I appreciate working with Landlords who understand that the business of renting out property is a business even if it just one rental property. Thanks again, Fred.

    Paramount realty helped us transition from managing our own rental property to implementing a property manager. We have enjoyed less stress and good communcation with Fred and his staff. Thanks!

    I am not sure who was happier about not having to deal with the constant stream of energy self-driven property management requires you or Greyson. LOL. Thanks for touching base here.

  • Greyson W. Aug 19, 2015
    Thanks to Fred and his team for helping us rent our townhouse. The staff was very helpful in establishing their property management system. Fred took the time to meet with me on multiple occasions to ensure a smooth transition. Very personable and easy to contact.

    We hired Paramount Realty Solutions to manage our rental property. Fred and the Paramount team have lifted all the weight and stress off our shoulders and have been fantastic to work with so far!
  • Don T. Aug 4, 2015
    The folks at Paramount (specifically, Fred and Jeremy) were extremely helpful in getting our house ready for rent. Fred actually came to our house for the initial meeting to go over details--something that a competing Property Management company declined to do. Both Fred and Jeremy were extremely communicative throughout the house-showing process, and they were able to secure a renter for us within two weeks of us moving out. We even got our asking rent price! If you're thinking about choosing these guys, go for it!
    Fred F. Aug 4, 2015

    Thank you for taking the time to post a review and I am glad we were able to get your rental asking price!

    The money is in the bank. Paramount helped us sell our house fast and hassle free. We had Paramount manage our rental property since Spring of 2012. After trying to manage our property ourself, and since we are not good at wearing the "black hat" when we really should, we hired Paramount. They did an excellent job. Good tenants were always found. We decided to sell this Spring. Paramount handled it quite well. We had a contract in less than a week after listing. They had done their homework. They do not have a five star rating only because their accounting system software is a little weak in the flexible reporting department.

    Hey Tom, it was good working with you folks. As it turns out, successful property management got us through the soft selling market so that we could hit the needed selling number mark.

    Fred and his colleagues have taken care of my property since 2012 and I am very satisfied with their outstanding works. Especially Fred is very responsible and professional.

    Thank you for being our customer for these many years.

    Our experience with Fred has been outstanding. Fred promptly reached out to us when we had expressed interest in property management companies using the Thumbtack portal. We had a successful 1st meeting in which Fred patiently took us through the process, before/during/after the rental scenarios, addressed all our questions. He was also knowledgeable of the required code, statutes and realistically walked us through the behavior and responsibilities of the tenant. This helped us in the planning process. We are now moving into the next stage of getting our house listed. Thanks Fred!

    Fred was great. He was to the point and answered questions we had. He was also able to leave us where we felt comfortable about renting to others.

Q&A

What types of customers have you worked with?
Paramount Realty Solutions offers a free checklist of what needs to be done to get a property rent ready and compliant with various regulations. This checklist often helps to minimize expenses the Owner thought might be needed to prepare a rent ready property. Paramount Realty Solutions also offers a free rental price evaluation supported by our "Rental Performance Guarantee" that requires our commitment to quickly rent your property.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
While comparing rates and fees is a standard and necessary process, consumers looking to hire a professional property manager should also "reverse shop" the websites of the various property managers. Websites that are hard to navigate can be an indication of the "hidden cost" of property management (i.e. the length of time the property will sit vacant with no rental income). The website should also support secure, on-line applications as well as on-line acceptance of application fees and monthly rent payments.
