Why Apex Management Group
At AMG, we know that a lot of work goes into managing successful associations (HOA Management) and our Property Management Services. That’s why we put our expertise, knowledge, and resources to work for you every day.
To begin, we introduce your association to innovative programs that can save time and money. Then, we help you to find the right vendors to partner with to meet your association’s special needs. From there, we assemble an account team just for you with experts to assist in overseeing operations and financial matters, managing staff and maintenance needs, creating community newsletters and so much more!
Complimentary Initial Consultation
Remember the questions we asked earlier? We help answer them, go over our services, fees, management contract, your timeline and market expectations. Whether you decide to hire us or not, you will leave this meeting a lot more knowledgeable about every aspect of property management and your local market.
Preparation for Market
During the initial consultation, we will provide an estimate of everything that needs to be done in order to maximize rent and minimize days on the market. It can be anything from cleaning, caulking, painting all the way to more substantial renovations.
Advertising and Marketing
With the property looking as good as new, we make sure it gets maximum exposure with advertisements appearing on an array of different websites, such as Craigslist, Trulia, Zillow, Facebook, Hot Pads, and the traditional MLS Service. Our agents perform unlimited showings and open houses until a rental application is submitted.
In order to ensure we have the highest quality tenant possible, we carefully examine their credit history, verify income and employment, examine previous landlord / personal references, and finally cross check agent tenant blacklists and criminal history records.
We prepare a lease contract fully compliant with local jurisdictional law including any necessary attachments required by condo associations. The lease is reviewed in detail with the tenant as well as the landlord so both parties are on the same page as far as expectations from the beginning. The executed lease is delivered to all parties.
Walk-Thru & Move-In
We help coordinate the tenant’s move to make sure it is compliant with all neighborhood or condo regulations. During the walk-thru, one last set of photos are taken to document the condition of the property at move-in. The tenants will be expected to leave the property in the same condition minus normal wear and tear. At this point, the security deposit is collected and the keys are handed over to the tenant.
Continual Maintenance & Rent Collection
We continually monitor the property, perform regularly scheduled maintenance and collect rent on a monthly basis through our management portal. We are aggressive with delinquency notices and have an excellent collections attorney. Emergency requests are addressed immediately and non emergency repairs are performed within a timely manner.
