Agora Realty Property Management makes every effort to keep you informed about your property. In addition to your account, our team of highly trained staff is here to answer your questions and work with you to get the best return on your investment.
Thorough Tenant Screening & Selection
Placing the wrong tenant can quickly cost you what you save by managing a property yourself. Our thorough screening complies with all applicable laws, including Fair Housing and Fair Credit Reporting Act. When we find a qualified tenant, we schedule lease signing and a move-in condition assessment with the approved tenant.
Your leasing agent manages the lease signing with the approved tenant using our professionally prepared lease and ensures that all proper contracts are executed correctly. We provide professional tenant education at the lease signing, as well. Finally, the leasing agent and the approved tenant conduct a walk-through to document conditions. This important walk-through assists in accurately assessing any changes in condition when the tenant moves out.
Timely Rent Collection
Nothing affects your cash flow more than late or missing rent payments. We collect the rent every month and deposit it into your account expeditiously. Our collection processes are professional but tough. We are extremely attentive in collecting rent through an orderly and timely process. Tenants are offered a variety of convenient ways to pay so you can get your money as quickly as possible. In addition, we treat each tenant respectfully and fairly. A positive relationship with a tenant leads to timely rent payments, as well as better care of your property.
Strict and Compliant Evictions
Even with careful placement, occasionally, there will be a tenant who needs to be evicted. Our staff is extremely knowledgeable in state and local landlord/tenant laws. If the tenant does not pay rent on time, or breaches the terms of the lease, we initiate the proper legal steps necessary, in the fastest possible timeframe, to minimize your costs and to get the property leased again.
Our goal is to maximize your income and minimize your expenses. To keep track of your income and expenses, we use a centralized accounting system. This all-inclusive accounting and reporting system, back with itemized statements and tax documentation, keeps all of your property management financial information organized in one place.
