You don’t want to work with one company to acquire an asset and another company to manage the investment. It’s easier – and more cost-effective – to keep all your real-estate and property management needs under one roof.

This is one of the things that sets us apart.

People’s can help you buy investment properties, or sell your investments by liquidating or reinvesting with a 1031-exchange. We can even help you turn your primary residence, or inherited property, into an income-producing investment home.

Leasing King County Homes and Placing Better Tenants

Whether your rental property is in Auburn, Kent, or Renton, we know the tenant pool and the market conditions. From pricing your single-family home competitively to preparing your multi-family units for the rental market, our leasing process is designed to do three things:

  • Find the best tenants

  • Reduce your vacancy rate

  • Earn as much rental income as possible

Expect better tenant screening when you work with us. Our process includes checking nationwide eviction and criminal histories, analyzing credit and debt, verifying income and employment, and talking to current and former landlords.

The result is a qualified, well-screened tenant who we expect to pay on time, follow the lease, and care for the property.

Pierce County Rental Property Maintenance and Management

Proper rental property maintenance is required when you want to preserve your investment’s rental value and increase its future sales price. We take care of all routine and emergency maintenance requests from tenants, and we also keep a close eye on your property during turnover periods and before we list it for rent.

Our maintenance services will include:

  • Emergency maintenance line answered 24-hours a day

  • Immediate response to service issues

  • Repairs with licensed and insured vendors

  • Bi-annual interior inspections

  • Monthly drive-by exterior check

You can also expect our full-service management services to include accounting and bill pay, rent collection, tenant relationships, and lease enforcement.

Homeowner and Community Association Management

Managing a homeowner’s or condominium community association can be time consuming and stressful. Most governing boards are all-volunteer, and the demands of meetings, bookkeeping, rule enforcement, and communication can be challenging.

People’s Real Estate Inc. and Property Management can remove some of the burden, providing administrative and financial support as well as help with maintenance, project management, budget forecasting, and reserve analysis.

How to Prepare a House for Rent

Check out our free document on “How to Prepare a House for Rent”. This document will help you…

  • Learn how to properly empty out the property.
  • Learn how to professionally clean the home.
  • Prepare the home so that it is safe and functional.

We had never worked with a property management firm before leasing a home through Peoples Real Estate for the past year. I dealt with Joe Brannon on numerous occasions and he was always very professional and friendly. Any requests or concerns were promptly responded to and/or taken care of. We were always given plenty of notice for any appointments or inspections. It was a win/win situation!

For Renters

We manage some of the most desirable rental homes throughout King County and Pierce County. Our progressive staff understands that consistently working to improve the quality of service, and attention to detail, are the best ways to provide comfortable communities for the people who have chosen our rentals.

Current Tenants

Our tenants feel comfortable knowing that 24-hours a day, 7-days a week, they will be able to reach a qualified employee who will promptly address any maintenance issue as relating to the safety or the integrity of their property.

Future Tenants

Looking for a new rental home in Auburn, Kent, or Renton? Search our available properties and find your next home. We can usually accommodate showings the same day if the home is vacant. If the home is still occupied, we typically need to give the current tenant a minimum of 24-hours notice and sometimes 48-hours notice.

My first experience was as an owner-resident-HOA Board member in Queen Anne. After moving to Alki and being the first renter of a Brand new Condo bldg, I was thrilled to hear People’s Property Mgmt was engaged by the owner. Their hands-on persistence made our transition easy. Outstanding follow ups and communication.

Peoples RE was hired into the property manager position just before we took occupancy. Nevertheless, Lisa and Joe dug in, and managed a very smooth transition for us. We most appreciated their persistent yet tactful approach in guiding the Construction crew through their punch list activities. Their attention to detail (especially safety and security) is top notch. They’re very experienced and practical in their handling of issues. I’m confident in giving tha 5 star rating, as we experienced their professionalism and persistence in a previous property in Queen Anne. I won’t hesitate to use them again and recommend them. Great experience.
