We Can Help
We are a full service property management firm that has been in the Patterson area for some time. We know what it takes to get a home rented and how to find the best tenant possible so that this is a successful venture that you never regret making. We take over the landlord duties for you, meaning that you do not have to do any of the heavy lifting.
Just how do we do this? We start with advertising this home to the market to find applicants to rent this home in the Patterson area. We utilize traditional means and non-traditional means of advertising so that we know we are reaching the widest audience possible.
Once applications start to come into the office, we allow a desired set of time to gather them up and then we start to review the applicants. We utilize tenant screening services to find the one person who is going to be an amazing tenant. We consider their past rental history and perform a background check on those we consider to rent this property.
From there, the tenant chosen will move in and we start performing landlord duties. This may mean arranging for repairs to be made, and even collecting the rent check each month. With our services, you know that this decision is going to be a great one!
