Providing Customer Service

We consider the tenant a customer and believe that great customer service equals longer tenancies, less wear and tear, and more profits for our landlords. Research the policies and procedures of your management company prior to hiring them. Making sure your property management company has the same mindset as you do when the phone rings is extremely important to a strong relationship.

Lack of Communication and Service

Lack of communication and service is a problem for most landlords and tenants, it’s their number one complaint. Research and verify company systems used for effective communication. Today’s online world takes more than just a cell phone to communicate with. The systems should be automated, online and with a systematic approach to be able to stay consistent with communication.

It is impossible for any of us to handle that kind of volume well every moment of everyday.
