Property Management Services – Home Management
Esquire Property Management began by managing just a few single family homes and – thanks to the trust and confidence of real estate investors just like you – has grown its portfolio of rental homes under management to become the best property management company in Ventura County.
We’ve accomplished this by giving each of our clients and their properties the personal care and attention they deserve, and our professional approach to property management lets you realize all of the solid financial rewards that the real estate investment business has to offer.
Our 1 objective is to increase the value of your rental house through cost-effective management and to rent your place to strong, qualified tenants. In fact, we normally get your home leased in less than 30 days, much faster than the industry average, while maintaining an extremely low tenant turnover rate!
We advertise your rental home on dozens of websites, including the MLS, Zillow, Trulia, Google (where Esquire is consistently ranked on page 1). Our thorough tenant screening weeds out all but the most qualified renters for your house.
When you grant us the privilege of managing your rental property – be it one house or several dozen – we promise you this:
1. We Get Your Home Rented . . . Fast!
So fast, in fact, that we normally rent your house in less than 30 days, much faster than the industry average. When your property is available for rent we employ a full-court press to market your property. We use the widest possible range of outlets to reach out to qualified, prospective tenants, including Internet marketing, social media, rental lists, full-color flyers, ‘for rent’ signs, and the MLS.
2. We Screen Tenants Thoroughly
Our rigorous standards ensure that we only rent to the most qualified of tenants. We use a comprehensive application form and run reports on the tenant’s credit, criminal history and previous rental record. Because of our thorough procedures our eviction rates are well below the industry average.
3 .We Use A Comprehensive Rental Agreement
The rental agreement that we use is the result of years of experience leasing property and is designed to give you the property owner the utmost protection against any potential tenant problems.
4 .We Are Maintenance Experts
Our vendor list contains only licensed tradespeople who are loyal to us and that we have worked with time and time again. They are highly qualified yet reasonably priced. Just as importantly . . . .
5. We Practice Preventive Property Maintenance
Rather than waiting for something to break before we fix it, we have established a routine maintenance program that we use each time a property is turned over to a new tenant. We also periodically inspect the property to repair any small repair items before they become a major expense.
6. We Know The Property Management Business
We constantly keep our finger on the pulse of the real estate market to ensure that you receive the maximum rent for your property. Our professional memberships include the California Apartment Association, the National Association of Residential Property Managers; and the Ventura County, California and National Associations of Realtors. Our knowledge and networking allow us to stay on top of all current market trends.
7. We Give You A Complete Range Of Accounting Services
You will have online access to your account via the Owner Portal on our website, where you can stay current on all billing, work orders, invoices and accounting. At the end of each month you will receive a monthly report with a detailed breakdown of all income and expenses for each of your properties under our management.
When you as a property owner sign up with Esquire we assign a dedicated team to manage your rental. The team in charge of your property consists of a lead property manager, a marketing manager, a full-time leasing agent, an applications processor, a dispatcher and an accountant.
In addition we have an established network of professional tradespeople – electricians, plumbers, landscapers, cleaners and more. This allows us to help you maximize the profits on your investment property.
Last, but certainly not least, a unique factor that sets Esquire Property Management apart from the competition is our focus on the legal aspects of real estate investing and property management.
The co-founder and broker of Esquire Property Management is Tracy Lu Guillen, a graduate of the UCLA School of Law. Tracy comes from a family of entrepreneurs, and before co-founding Esquire Tracy actively practiced as an attorney. Her legal background allows us to help you follow the rule and spirit of California landlord-tenant law and the Federal Fair Housing laws to avoid problems before they ever arise.
We all know that time is money. If you have a rental home that is sitting vacant or has a less-than-desirable tenant, if you’re planning on investing in a residential rental property and need assistance leasing and managing it, or even if you just want some more information . . . give Esquire Property Management a call today!
