It’s important to have a process in place to handle repairs and maintenance at your rental property. This will ensure you’re able to preserve the condition of your property and work with your tenants to keep the place well maintained. Today, we’re talking about how to handle those repair requests. (more…)
We are always asked how to find good quality tenants for properties. Our belief is that it’s all about the Chicagoland tenant screening process. When we are screening, we look at five things: credit, criminal, income and employment, identity, and rental history if it applies. (more…)
Baird & Warner has been in real estate since 1855. We are a family owned and operated business with strong ties to our community. Today, we are sharing some of the best reasons to work with us when you need professional property management in Chicagoland.
Full Service Management
We are a full service company. Whether this is a short term venture for you or a long term investment, we have all the real estate and management services that you’ll need under one roof. We can handle property management, residential sales, mortgages, and title issues. You won’t have to juggle relationships with multiple companies throughout the lifecycle of your real estate investment.
Consistent Policies and Procedures
We have processes and procedures in place that cover everything from tenant screening, tenant move ins, repairs, and tenant move outs. More importantly, we follow them. Everything is done consistently and with the necessary documentation.
Transparency and Risk Management
We are all about transparency. From screening to repairs, we share everything with you so you know that everything is accounted for. We wish we could guarantee the perfect tenant, but that’s impossible. So, we do our best to minimize your risk. That might mean asking for a higher security deposit, or collecting prepaid rent from a tenant. In any event, we want to make sure you are comfortable with the decisions we make. Our eviction rate is low. We have done fewer than 12 evictions since 1999, because we are careful to place only the best tenants in your property.
Property Management Chicagoland: Education
We are always improving ourselves with continuing education. As members of the National Association of Residential Property Managers (NARPM), we have access to additional resources and training so we can stay on top of the leasing and property management fields.
We would welcome the opportunity to interview for the job of your next property manager. If you have any questions about our company or our Chicagoland property management services, please contact us at Baird & Warner Property Management.
