How do you control costs and protect budget limits?
You choose your budget limits and we enforce them. If any work will be over budget, we escalate to you (or someone else that you designate) to get approval.
Who will be troubleshooting and dispatching my maintenance calls?
An experienced property manager or contractor troubleshoots and dispatches your work. Everyone on our troubleshooting team has at least 2 years experience in property management and maintenance. Many of our employees come from a general contracting background. We understand maintenance and we know a good priced contractor from a bad one.
