Our Commitment For Service

  • Our job is to make certain that we protect your interest by placing a qualified tenant in your investment property that will properly maintain the home, pay the required rent on time and abide by the terms as written in the Residential Lease Agreement.
  • We provide the tenants with a copy of “The Arizona Landlord and Tenant Act” and make certain they understand their rights and obligations when renting a residential property for compliance with the statue.
  • Most communities are governed by a “Homeowners Association”. We educate our tenants of their responsibilities in an effort to avoid any violations.

Marketing

  • We place your rental property on our web site as a featured rental property for maximum exposure.
  • We advertise your rental property on over 40 real estate related rental websites worldwide.
  • Information about your rental property is also distributed to all property management companies in Arizona.
  • The property is also placed in the Arizona Multiple Listing System and populated to other real estate related web sites.
  • Property flyers are also distributed to relocation companies and local corporations for distribution to their employees.

Tenant Screening

  • Our company obtains a rental application on all prospective tenants over the age of eighteen and conducts an online credit and national background check within minutes of receiving a completed application.
  • We review a prospective tenant’s credit based on their ability to pay, as opposed to their credit rating.
  • In most cases, individuals who rent properties have limited credit history. Therefore, gross rent should not exceed 75% of the combined gross income of the prospective tenant(s).
  • We carefully review the background of all tenants over the age of 18 years old to make certain we have responsible parties for the property.

Tenant Placement

  • Qualify all tenants over 18 years of age.
  • Conduct a walk thru and obtain written acceptance of the property prior to occupancy.
  • Review general maintenance guidelines.
  • Review CC & R’s with tenant(s).
  • Educate the tenants on paying rent on time in an effort to avoid late charges and possible eviction.
  • Review all addendums and HOA guidelines with the tenant(s) in detail.
  • Obtain emergency contact information from tenant(s).

Inspections

  • Tenants are entitled to quiet enjoyment of the property and we do not abuse their rights; however, we will conduct quarterly interior inspections after providing the legal notice to the tenant(s).
  • We gently visit with approximately 20 neighbors and provide them with our contact information in the event they notice anything unusual at the rental property or if the neighbors notice the property is not properly maintained. The neighbors act as our 24-hour security.
  • We notify the homeowners association to copy us with any property violations so we can immediately remedy the problem and avoid any fines.
