Our Full-Service Property Management includes all Leasing Services as well as:
- Collecting monthly rents.
- Paying owner’s bills as directed.
- Handling requests for repairs and maintenance.
- Arranging and making payment for required repairs or maintenance work.

- INCLUDES FREE Eviction cost coverage for total management owners on our tenant placements. We’ve averaged less than one eviction per year over the last ten years, and we include paying for eviction costs, legal fees, and sheriff service fees for any tenant we place in a unit. This cost is covered for the whole time a tenant is in the unit as well. No matter if they’ve been a tenant for six months or six years, we believe owners should get what they pay for.
Leasing & Tenant Placement Service
Our leasing services are included as part of our Full Management Service.
These services include:
- Evaluating market conditions concerning your property’s rental value.
- Listing your property on the #1 rental website in Maine www.RentBangor.com, Rentals.com, Zillow, and other rental websites at NO cost to the owner.
- Placement advertising in the relevant publications. Currently, we place in Bangor Daily with pictures ads, online website ads, radio ads, WABI commercials, Spectrum commercials, and numerous local outlets, all at no cost to property owners. No one else does the advertising we do because it’s costly but necessary to bring in the best tenant prospect pool for our rentals across all demographics. If you ignore traditional advertisement channels just because they’re slower and costly, you miss some of the best renters!
- Showing your property to prospective tenants.
- Strict tenant screening, including computerized credit background check and employment and evictions history, before acceptance.
- Executing lease agreement and other required documents.
- Collecting first month’s rent and security deposits as well as suggest a secondary revenue stream.
- Fees are flat rate based on % of rent collected, so we are paid on results and never upcharge our clients for “extra” services or fees that should be included.
