Columbus Property Management for Savvy Multi-Unit Rental Owners and Real Estate Investors

Our property management packages are specifically designed to align our incentives with yours – maximizing returns, minimizing liability, and retaining happy, paying tenants month after month.

You may have come across other Columbus property management companies that are little more than a loosely affiliated group of real estate agents who do property management work on the side.

Not us. We are a dedicated team doing nothing but property management.

I was initially annoyed with how Maintenance was handled when I first moved into my house. Since then the maintenance has improved 100%. I even have a favorite guy, Aaron. He’s always cheerful, helpful, informative and he doesn’t mind that my furbaby loves him. Would definitely recommend.

I have been pleasantly surprised with RL. I worked with Bryan through the sales and onboarding process - he was extremely easy to work with and clear in communication about how it all works - I was expecting a bit of an "oversell and underdeliver" -- but it has almost been the opposite of this, which seems rare in today's world! They have really delivered all the way around so far. Thanks again guys.
