How It Works


Most of your rental listing clients are not prepared or equipped for the stresses of managing a tenancy. What was a positive event can then turn sour once they start chasing down tenants and getting middle of the night calls. That's where we come in. With systems and a passion for creating the necessary components for a smooth tenancy, we will take away the stress of being a Landlord and keep you on their mind when it's time to re-lease or sell the property.


It is probably best for you or your client to call us at 954-346-1951 when you are about to list a rental property. We can go over everything with you. We make it easy. Below, we have touched on some of the most asked questions.


Here is a broad overview of what we do with some FAQs:


  • We document the property. You have most likely taken some wonderful glamour shots of the property. In addition, we will add a multitude of shots of high probability areas such as kitchen counter tops, sinks, tubs, insides of appliances, flooring, etc... We even document the model and serial numbers of the appliances. 

         FAQ: Why do you do that? We do it for a couple of reasons. The first is because we                 have a clear shot of condition before the tenant moves in and we share the report 

       with them. Now we are all on the same page. Second, we now have an intimate profile 

       of the property should we need to reference something quickly. We also use these

       photos for comparison at move out.


  • We use an attorney drafted lease.

       FAQ:Why an attorney drafted lease instead of one from an office store? The simple 

        answer is better wording and protection for our Landlords. The attorneys follow 

        Florida law and update their clauses. We also have complimentary phone time with

        them if need be. The lease is reasonably priced at $95.00


  • Our fee is 9.5% of collected rent.

          FAQ: Are you the cheapest in town? No, we're not but most likely not the most 

        expensive either. We believe in a fair price for good quality service.


  • We perform periodic visits.

         FAQ: How often are your visits? we do two per year but we find ourselves at our 

       properties more frequently than that. If it's something simple like a clogged sink

       we are very hands on. That's a cost savings to our clients.


  • We are available 24/7 for emergency calls. 

       FAQ: Does the tenant reach a live person or a call service? The tenant reaches one of 

        our property managers who is familiar with the property. Sometimes the issue can be 

​        handled over the phone but if not we are heading to handle the situation.


  • We receive and distribute payments electronically.

         FAQ: When do we receive our proceeds? We almost always process our payments on

       the 9th of the month. Besides receiving your distribution, you will also receive a 

       statement via email. 


  • We deliver legally binding late notices if rent is late.

       FAQ: Does that usually solve the issue? Usually it does. The tenant has 3 days to 

        pay or surrender the premises. We hand deliver the notice. 


  • In this business, experience counts. We've seen many things.

       FAQ: Could you elaborate?  Sometimes we can't believe what we hear but we have dealt

        with some odd things. One tenant in a upscale neighborhood erected a 22 foot high 

        resin giraffe. He saw nothing wrong with it! We've had a snake found in a living room.

        We've seen 10 pound dogs mysteriously turn into 80 pound dogs. We've had bees 

        migrate into a wall of a condo and build a honey comb. Unfortunately, we've also had

        a tenant or two pass away mid tenancy. All of these events needed to be professionally

        dealt with.


  • We only use licensed and insured vendors.

       FAQ: Why? The short answer is to simply protect our Landlords. We routinely audit our

        vendors to make sure that their licensing and insurance is up to date. We have a good

        relationship with our vendors and they know our standards are high so we are only 

        using people that we would use in our own homes.
