Working with our People Make the Difference - We believe that the key to our success is in the personal relationships that we have developed with our customers over the years. Realty Services has assembled the most talented team of residential property managers in the nation. Less than 20 property managers in the United States have attained the following combined property management designations; Master Property Managers (MPM's) and Residential Management Professional (RMP's). Our experience and knowledge in managing residential property means savings for you. Unlike most of our competitors who are here today and gone tomorrow, our people are well compensated and many have been with the company for over 18 years average.
Phone Dispatched Leasing Consultants - Because we average several hundred prospective renter calls each week to our 4 offices, we use cell phones to dispatch our leasing consultants who show rental homes 7 days a week. Our leasing consultants are specially trained in the art of assisting prospective renters and leasing properties. This increase in showing efficiency, coupled with specialized training means results for our property owners, not to mention a tremendous benefit in time and savings to our qualified renters seeking quality homes.
Video Taped Property Inspections - If you believe that a picture is worth a thousand words, then Video Taped Property Inspections are just one more reason why you should hire Realty Services as the property manager of your single family home, condo, duples, townhome, etc... Since we began adding videotape to our home inspections (1992), there hasn't been any question as to "What the property looks like prior to move in". This provides peace of mind property management for property owners who want to protect their property AND their residents who want to ensure the return of their security deposit. While some property management companies talk of property inspections, we back our inspections up (on video).
We show rental properties 7 days a week - Realty Services is open for your convenience 7 days a week, (excluding national holidays). We realize that often times renters seeking quality rental homes must have after hour or weekend appointments. We also realize that the management of rental properties doesn't stop on Friday's at 5:00 PM. To provide the highest standard of professionalism in the service we provide you, our customers must be able to reach us. Our office hours are 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday, Saturday, Sunday is by appointment. We also have property managers on call 24 hours a day to handle any situation for our customers.
Superior Resident Screening - In selecting the right residents for your rental property we believe that an ounce of prevention is worth 1000 lbs of cure. We want to ensure that our property owners get the caliber of renters they deserve. That's why we utilize a 6 step screening process on each and every adult rental applicant.
- We use an in-depth application form for screening.
- We pull a national credit report on each and every adult rental applicant.
- We do an "Eviction Search" throughout SW Florida to ensure that our applicant hasn't been evicted in the preceding 7 years.
- We do a verification of former landlord references.
- We do a verification of the applicant's employment.
- We do a criminal search thoughout SW Florida to ensure no criminal activities.
Because of our Superior Resident Screening Process most "rent-jumping" residents (the ones who don't pay rent, damage properties and move out in the middle of the night) prefer to apply directly to property owners, who may not know until it's too late. We hope this hasn't happened to you. Throw your aspirin away and call us today! Don't make a $ 10,000 dollar mistake! Call Realty Services Property Management right now at (239) 939-1233.
