Your Time is Valuable
First and foremost property managers provide their clients with peace of mind.
PROPERTY MANAGEMENT ADVISOR'S guiding principles reflect an unwavering and unchanging attitude toward our landlord clients, our colleagues, and the public.
As a landlord, you have enough on your plate without having to worry about the day-to-day management of your rental property.
From finding and screening tenants to handling maintenance requests and repairs, there's a lot that goes into being a successful landlord.
This is where working with a professional property management company can be extremely beneficial. Property Management Advisors (PMA) will take care of all the details for you, so that you can focus on other things – like growing your portfolio or enjoying some well-deserved free time.

Property Management Advisors creates custom marketing plans for every property that will ensure optimal visibility to potential residents. Our listing agents cast the net far and wide, capitalizing on the vast resources of Bright MLS, Trulia, Zillow, Realtor.com, Rentpath, Homepath, and our referring agent partners throughout the region.
Once the property is listed, Property Management Advisors handles every aspect of the tenant search for you. We'll answer inquiries, schedule and conduct showings, and assist prospective tenants with the application process. When we process the application, we verify income and employment, run credit checks, and contact the applicant's previous landlord for references.
When a suitable tenant is found, we will negotiate the lease terms on your behalf. Once the lease is executed PMA will create a series of Initial Narrated Walk Through Videos. Additionally, PMA's staff will assist with utility transfer, renter's insurance, keys and access, passes/FOB's, air filters, water turn-offs, electrical system, yard maintenance, and general move-in protocol.
Each month we will collect the rent, disburse it to the landlord within the first week, and account for it via our online Appfolio statement system. Additionally, our CFO prepares and provides the annual 1099 misc income forms for your convenience.
We are on-call 24 hours a day to assist with service calls, respond to emergencies, coordinate repairs, or file hazard insurance claims. Whether the problem is small or cosmetic, huge or life threatening, we will respond accordingly and keep you informed during the process. When coordinating repairs or maintenance, we have a list of go-to vendors who provide reliable, quality service for an affordable price.
We conduct at least two seasonal inspections per year to ensure lease compliance. Like our initial walkthroughs, seasonal inspections are video recorded and provided to both the landlord and tenant through an unlisted channel.
The Property Management Advisors Owner Portal is where you'll to find all the information you need including statements, 1099s and much more.
