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:
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
