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.

Michael Short & all the other office/maintenance personnel have been great. He has been overbackwards to try and help me with everything that has to do with this property. And he is still helping. Since I have to look for another place to move to since the owners are selling. Because the owners don't wanna take care of the place why renters are in here. Thank you to everybody in the office.
