Answers to your common questions
Am I required to make my property available to Section 8?
No, each owner is given that option and we will gladly work with Section 8 tenants. In fact, we have done this successfully for more than 20 years.
Are you licensed?
All our property managers and Leasing Team Members are real estate licensed.
Can I reach you after hours?
We operate an after hours emergency hotline. That way tenants have access in case of EMERGENCIES like: fire, flooding, crimes activity or Natural Disasters.
Can you put the money directly into my account?
That’s the way we prefer. If you choose that option your funds will actually reach your bank account faster than the traditional mail method.
Do I get to see the lease or sign it?
You have access to all official documents related to the lease relationship except the tenants’ credit report and application due to the sensitive information provided and privacy issues.
Do you sell real estate too?
We do. If you decide to sell or buy your property and you do not have an established relationship with a real estate agent, we would be honored to represent you. However, if you were referred to us by your real estate broker, we will contact him/her on your behalf to alert them and help you in any future transactions. It’s ethical and fair.

We disburse to our clients within 10 days from rent receipts. Remember we need to make sure the funds have cleared the bank.

Tenant has the ability to pay rent online, by mail, in the office, at any 7/11 stores.
How long of a lease do you sign?
