HELPING INVESTORS IS OUR PASSION
Hiring Jesslyn is one of the best business decisions I have made. Hiring her has saved me an incredible amount of time. For example - we had a high rate of vacancies in the past year and to make matters worse, it was the units that needed remodeling. While I did the remodeling, Jesslyn managed the tenants. I don't know how I would have gotten through that hectic time without her. I always hesitated hiring a Property Manager because of their fee, but after hiring Jesslyn, I quickly realized the benefits. As tenants moved out, she raised rents up to market value which off-set her fee and she also does a better job of screening than I do. Maybe the nicest aspect of hiring Jesslyn is how quiet my phone is now.

THE PROPERTY MANAGEMENT EXPERTS
This is why we specialize in property management.
You'll notice that at Ally Property Management & Real Estate we're different than other Realtors. We enjoy helping investors grow their portfolio's, helping and teaching them about investing and helping all parties have a good landlord, tenant renting relationship. We cherish the relationships and friendships that we get to create with our tenants and landlords that extend beyond just a sale.
OUR LEASING PROCESS
If your lease isn’t clear in laying out expectations and up to date with current laws, you experience problems
Ally Property Management and Real Estate does away with these problems with a solid lease agreement. Our lease was drafted diligently between our company owner and a local attorney, together putting years of experience into the agreement. It is a foolproof agreement designed to prevent problems before they can ever arise.
When finding potential tenants for your home, we require that an application be filled out by all applicants over the age of 18. Our screening process complies with Fair Housing regulations and all prospective tenants must meet your rental criteria. We go over leases almost word-for-word with tenants to clearly explain all the lease requirements and terms with each tenant to verify that your tenant understands all their obligations.
Finding The Perfect Tenant
Finding and keeping the right tenants for your property is the most important step in renting your property and generating a positive cashflow. We take care in helping find you the perfect tenant.
Emergencies are an unexpected crisis. But we are always prepared, even for the unforeseen.
We want to place tenants who understand and appreciate the required care needed to maintain your property. We also assist new tenants with any questions or concerns they have. While showing rentals, including in our virtual tour videos, we carefully highlight issues or problems that could arise with the property to help prevent unnecessary maintenance calls.
We're constantly educating ourselves and asking contractors questions to learn how to prevent repairs and trouble shoot repairs with tenants before having to hire maintenance. We know trusted handymen, electricians, plumbers, and HVAC specialists that work quickly to keep tenants happy and properties in good maintenance. We know cleaning crews and carpet cleaners to have properties quickly ready for any turn overs.
If you have someone you already prefer to use, great! We’re happy to make all repair arrangements through whomever you prefer.
HOW WE HANDLE UNFORTUNATE EVICTIONS
Our first round of protection lies in preventing bad tenants from renting your properties in the first place. We accomplish this with a screening process designed to weed out problem renters before they ever get to you. Even though we always try to place trustworthy tenants, sometimes tenants need to be evicted.
SOLVING THE PROBLEM BEFORE EVICTION
At Ally Property Management & Real Estate we have the time and resources to try and work with renters before things escalate. We first work to keep communication and resolve issues quickly and professionally. This ensures you not only keep your existing renters but also keep the property profitable.
If an eviction is unavoidable, we help start the eviction process and work with your preferred local attorney. We understand the legal process and nuances of evicting properly. Representing your interests in court, should the need arise, and ensuring both you and your property are protected.
FINDING A NEW TENANT
Once the eviction is over, we find, vet, and place new tenants in your property with a solid lease agreement. Before we place a new tenant, we will help arrange needed repairs to restore your property to showable condition, prepare it for the next round of tenants, and then place carefully screened tenants in it. Working quickly and efficiently to obtain best cash flow.
Monthly Financial Reports
All financial reports and applicable funds are paid on or before the 15th of the month when all rental income and or/expenses have been processed unless other arrangements are made prior. If you own multiple rental properties, you will receive each property’s income and expenses as separate line items for easy bookkeeping. Here is an example of what your monthly statement would look like.
