"Personalized service is what it's all about."
We are a professional, knowledgeable, and courteous property management company. We work very hard to provide the highest quality resident services you'll ever experience.
We like nothing more than being able to give a resident their whole security deposit back. It is a lot more work for us to have to do a security claim. However, there usually is a small claim as we prefer to do the minor touch up paint (It is cheaper to let us do it than having to fix what you might have done incorrectly). Some residents are very good at leaving the property the way they found it upon move-in while a few don't seem to care. We do, for the most part, have outstanding residents that we get to see every month when they pay their rent. Some just pay rent by mail and we never see or hear from them unless their is a maintenance request. I am attaching our move out letter so that you can see what is expected when you exit a unit.
Remember that this is your home while you reside there.
Please note you need to leave the premises CLEAN as follows:
We will patch all nail holes and touch up paint which will be deducted from your security deposit accordingly.
If the above guidelines are followed, we will do our inspection of the property and if all items are acceptable, we will mail your security deposit to you by certified mail which will be sent to your last known address. Make sure you do the forwarding address change with the post office. Or, you can write your forwarding address and turn it over w/your keys upon vacating the unit along with the carpet cleaning receipt if applicable.

Q. I’m thinking about purchasing a home. What should I know before buying?
A. If you’re thinking of investing in a house now or wondering whether you should wait, here are three important things to consider:
1. Renting vs. Buying. If you rent a home, it could cost you less each month...and you might have more money to invest in other endeavors. But if you put your money in a low-interest money market fund, generally you will not earn as much as if you had invested your money in a house.
2. Housing Prices and Interest Rates. You may be waiting for the housing prices in your area to fall. They may not. However, usually when they do, the interest rates will be higher. The amount you gain could be significantly less over the long-term cost of the mortgage. Therefore, waiting may not be in your best financial interest.
3. The Break-Even Point. The average break-even point for buying and selling a house is five to seven years. If you plan to move before then you may want to seek professional advice before purchasing property if you want to realize a profit on your investment.
