numerous reasons. Our expert operations analysts can evaluate every aspect of
your on-site operations, identify areas of inefficiency and recommend a
corrective action plan. We can assist owners in implementing new operating
systems and procedures that can keep your on-site operations on the right track.

investment. Over the years, we have developed systems and procedures that work.

marketing your property effectively and within legal parameters? Our experienced
shoppers can "shop" your property on a one-time basis, or we can place your

reports. This service gives you the peace-of-mind that your on-site staff is
maximizing apartment rental opportunities and conducting business on your behalf
in an professional, ethical and legal manner.

marketing efforts and conduct an extensive rental market survey to understand
the marketing efforts of your competition. We can assist in the development of
new marketing tools that may include new advertising campaigns, curb appeal
enhancement and signage, staging and merchandising vacant apartments, community
networking or website design and development.
A safe and well-maintained physical plant is essential in today's litigious and
competitive rental market environment. Our property inspection service includes
a thorough exterior evaluation of the buildings and grounds for safety and
proper maintenance. The interior of all apartments will be inspected for
condition and safety. Priority attention will be paid to the presence of mold or
mildew and any condition that can contribute to this environmental hazard. Other
areas to be inspected include the leasing office, storage rooms, garages,
carports and maintenance shops. A report will be generated that identifies the
condition of every area inspected. We can then recommend a corrective action
plan and assist with its implementation. We can oversee the bid
process for capital improvement projects and the supervision of any construction

recommend any needed changes or improvements. We also provide on-going
supervision of your affordable housing administration to ensure compliance.
