Importance of Regular Home Inspections

One of the great services offered to tenants, owners and property managers is the On Site PROS Inspection. This is a company who goes out and inspects every inch of the home and gives a very detailed report with photos on every repair that is needed at the home.

Customer Service Philosophy

I was asked once, "What does customer service mean to you?" This is a very good question. I have been in the customer service field ever since I was old enough to help clean a family owned restaurant, and I have always found that the best philosophy for customer service is to make sure your customer leaves with a smile on their face.

Renter's Insurance

With all this crazy weather we've been having, let's go ahead and talk a little about renter's insurance.

When renting a property, it is a very, very good idea to invest in some renter's insurance. This protects you from damages that may occur while you are in the home caused by weather, fire, and theft. These insurance policies generally range anywhere from $6.00 a month, to $75.00 a month, depending on the kind of coverage you'd like. You can even get a discount if you go through the company you use for your car insurance.
