What we do as your Columbia property manager:
- Inspection of the property and analysis of competitive rental pricing
- Advertise your rental, as needed
- Handle tenant inquiries
- Background and credit checks
- Application processing
- Preparation and execution of leases
- Process security deposits
- Coordinate move-ins and move-outs
- Diligent collection of rent
- Review of necessary repairs and safety issues

We inspect all properties prior to the agreement being signed, make maintenance suggestions and are able to perform the needed repairs. We also are prepared to periodically inspect the property to ensure the condition of each unit continues to meet the standards we have set.
As your property manager, our goal is to achieve the highest market value for your property, while maintaining a high occupancy rate and keeping your expenses to a minimum. Vacancies translate into lost income which is something we try to avoid. We want to make sure that your property is advertised and marketed as effectively as possible.

The rental process is designed to obtain the best possible tenant for each property. This can only be accomplished after a thorough check of the applicant's history.
We screen and process applications and negotiate and enforce leases on a daily basis.
Our policy is to require the minimum security deposit equivalent to one month’s rent (with approved credit). Deposit monies are kept in a trust account and are used at end of tenancy to pay for damages above normal wear and tear caused by abuse or neglect.
Security Deposits for Pets
A pet deposit is calculated at $200.00 times the number of pets allowed on the premises. Deposit monies are kept in a trust account and are refunded to the Tenant within thirty (30) business days after the premises has been vacated, if upon inspection, the premises are found to be in as good condition as at the beginning of the lease.
Whether you are investing in additional properties or feel it is time to cash in on your investment, we will facilitate all aspects of the transaction.
- Acquisitions – Looking to add to your portfolio? We can help you identify the right properties and close the deal quickly and efficiently.
- Property Evaluation – Is your property ready to sell? We can help you maximize your sale price.
- Appraisals – You may ask, “What is my property worth?” We can give you the answer based on real market data.
Income Management begins with prompt disbursal of monthly income (with statement) and continues with modern management strategies and proper maintenance on each property so as to obtain maximum rents and the best possible tenant for that unit.
Our goal with our Income Management strategies is to eliminate the necessary effort by the investor. We want you to feel safe and secure that your property is well maintained, and that the most appropriate tenant will inhabit your property. We want you to remember that your rental property should be an asset to you and your family, not a constant problem.
