Your Property is in Good Hands
We strive to offer the most conscientious and professional service to our owners and tenants to meet, and often surpass, expectations. Our company is relationship-based with a large following of dedicated tenants and owners. We truly care about our clients and their properties, and it shows. In most cases, our properties are second homes or future retirement homes with owners who prefer a more “personal touch” in their property’s care. Owners can expect regular communication with updates and feedback, and we are easy to contact. Great care is taken in screening prospective tenants, and we do not handle “party houses.” Inspections are done by professional office staff with additional accidental damage coverage provided on all rental bookings.
We Know the Market
Our desert is unique from other rental markets in the US. In the Heart of the Desert, we are very well known for monthly seasonal rentals. With various short-term rental bans, this can make booking without gaps, leaving unrentable dates, a real challenge. We have specialized in seasonal rentals for years, and our professional staff work directly with prospective tenants to maximize bookings … much like piecing together a puzzle. This takes direct communication, where we excel, gaining relationships and trust through the process.
Your vacation home will be placed on our website and possibly additional advertising platforms to maximize exposure. Our website is state of the art and easy for viewers to find and navigate. We are continually working with web placement professionals to trigger search engine key words to ensure that your potential tenants will be able to find your property easily. We have a extensive list of cleaning contractors, maintenance, and service vendors to provide excellent care for your property. Our staff and extended network still believe in “Old Fashioned Customer Service,” providing prompt attention and emergency assistance when needed by tenants and owners, during and after business hours.
