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 have been a tenant of RL Property Management for a year. The property was clean and well maintained when I moved in and staff are always friendly and helpful. Their online payment system is easy to use. They respond quickly to requests for maintenance. I’m extending my lease for a second year and I highly recommend renting their properties.

The property owner did us a favor by signing up with his company. I have dealt with Michael on many occasions and I am quite happy with them. That’s far the communication and return phone calls are phenomenal. I appreciate what they do not to mention the maintenance guy again phenomenon. Thank you guys.

RLP Property Management is actually the best management company that we've had since we've been renting this property. And these owners of this house have went through to other property management Sunday did not do a good job. But everything that we put in for they work as fast as they can to get the work completed and get it okayed by the owner. And we appreciate it very much because we don't ask for much

We rented our house for almost 4 years and RL was one of the corporations that took over half way through. I had nothing but positive experience with the management company. They were extremely responsive to all maintenance requests we had and made the move out process extremely easy. I’m not sure why everyone is complaining about the move out charges. We have two large dogs so we expect to never receive our deposit back. When we moved out we got 80% of our deposit back and the charges were extremely fair.

Once my application was approved I always received a timely response to any questions I had via email, and I had a lot. We love our place and are happy to be here. I am very grateful to the management team for getting us in so quickly and all of the kindness they showed. Tiffany is amazing.
