Each rental property owner is provided with a no-obligation analysis where the
condition of your property is reviewed. We meet with you to provide information on what,
if any, cosmetic improvements and/or repairs might be needed to bring the premises to a
market standard for the area, so that you may obtain the highest rental rate for the size,
location and condition of the property. We work closely with numerous journeymen who
can provide reliable services at reasonable prices.
Our membership in the Chicago Association of Realtors and the Greater Northwest Indiana
Association of Realtors assures your access to the latest comparable information so we
price your property for the fastest rental with minimal downtime. Our goal is a zero
vacancy rate for all of our clients, which means a higher return to you, the property
owner/investor. Our track record for meeting this goal is solid. Our current occupancy
rate for managed properties is reaching 100%. Our average vacancy rate is less then 30
days. Our inventory of rental properties is large enough that we can often move present
tenants seeking larger (or smaller) accommodations between our company managed properties.
This assists us in hitting our 0% vacancy rate target.
Tenant Selection and Screening
Once your property is ready for showing, we immediately begin our search for the best
tenant we can find. We market geographically to attract the tenants who will benefit the
most by the location of your property. We seek to match tenants with properties so as to
provide optimum tenant satisfaction, thereby making tenant retention rates very high. Our
track record for multi-year renewals, like our placement rate, is very high.
Our screening process normally includes structured face-to-face interviews with
prospective tenants as well as credit checks and employment background verifications. Our
philosophy of honesty in the application process is strictly adhered to. Our applications
and leases contain clauses requiring full disclosure on the part of the tenant applicants
so as to make our recommendations to our clients sound ones.
Property Management and Maintenance Services
Perhaps the most important job of a property management firm is staying in touch with
the property. Our philosophy is that without responsive attention to the details of
maintenance and repair calls, the client is exposed to short-term loss of income and lost
of value in the investment. We are responsive to the calls of tenants seeking either
advise on or services calls to our managed properties.
Our leases and tenant information packets clearly outline tenant maintenance
responsibilities. These responsibilities also are explained in the interview with the
tenants, where they are familiarized with both the operations and basic day-to-day minor
maintenance of the property's major systems. When items do break or wear-our, and the
responsibility is ours, we respond quickly to assure the tenants needs for basic service
are being met.
Our philosophy of services to our clients and tenants places us at the forefront of the
property management industry. Our total commitment to service separates us from our
