MMI is not a warehouse operation. Warehouses are for those who think the same service level comes at any price, including the cheapest. But, astute investors shop more than price–they seek value. You might wonder what can a rental management company do besides keep the property rented and collect the rent. Glad you asked!
MMI has a staff that includes Client Services (trained to assist tenants, but also to triage maintenance needs so we don’t send the wrong contractor for the job), Property Managers (who cater to the needs of our client landlords), Leasing/Sales Agents (who market your property whether for sale or rent and protect your interest in the transaction), Accounting (to produce monthly financial reports, pay the bills, disburse your funds and ensure all that can be done to collect rent is being done) and Executives (local, actively engaged company owners to care about the future of the company and our clients).
We also own a full-service maintenance company, Market Ready, Inc., to help expedite vacancy turnovers and to handle all jobs, big and small. Sure, we want your renovation job and your insurance job, but we know you also have to comply with that pesky violation notice to fix a window screen. Market Ready is your single source for property maintenance. And, as an added benefit, our Market Ready maintenance staff perform property inspections and answer after-hours emergency calls. They know what they are looking at and they know how to ask the right questions to determine how urgent an emergency really is. They’re NOT some $8/hour, overseas answering service. They are a genuine resource.
Warehouse or true expert property management? Seems clear–and for about the same cost.
