We would like to briefly share our management philosophy with you, address some of the issues property owners frequently have, and let you know what you can expect when you trust your property management needs to SJA Property Management.
At SJA, we find it important to begin by sharing with our property owners three guarantees regarding our ability to provide the very best in property management services. First is our Tenant Performance Guarantee. Should we place a tenant in your property and if that tenant breaks their lease within the first six months of occupancy, we will waive our leasing fee to locate another tenant. We should note as well that we only collect our management fee when we collect your rent.
Next is our 30-Day Lease Guarantee. Should we not be able to find a qualified tenant to whom we can lease your property within 30 days of promoting your property on the rental market, we’ll waive your first month’s management fee.
Most important of all is our 100% Happiness Guarantee. We want you to know how committed we are to satisfying your need for professional, responsive property management. To that end, we commit to doing everything within our power to correct to your satisfaction any issues that arise. If, however, we cannot meet your expectations within the first three months our managing your property, you can cancel our management agreement without penalty and we will refund your monthly management fees. These three commitments and the guarantees that go with them are just some of the things that set Eastside apart.
