We are a member of the Institute of Real Estate Management and a licensed MN r.e. brokerage.

Tenants are invoiced monthly and can pay their rent through the mail, by bringing it to the office or electronically via their checking account or credit card through our website. This will give the tenants every opportunity to pay their rent on time. This also enables us to deal with issues immediately.

The owner distribution checks will be electronically transferred to the owner’s bank account. The funds are usually deposited to the owner’s account by the 10th business day of the month.

We collect damage deposits which are typically one month’s rent. (Minnesota State Law requires interest to be paid at lease termination to the tenant.)

We coordinate all maintenance and emergency repairs through our maintenance staff and contractors.

We understand and apply federal, state, and local laws, helping protect you and your investment.

We enforce collection of rents and serve the proper notices upon failure to pay.

Utilize court and collections agencies for any delinquent rents or money that is owed.

Certificates of Rents Paid are issued out to renters at year’s end for tax purposes.

After you add up the increased rent we can often collect, the shorter time you spend waiting for rent checks, the discounts you’ll receive on advertising, and the company rate we get on repairs, you’ll often see greater cash flow than if you managed the property yourself!
