As a military family, it has been challenging living away from home, and in different time zones. People’s has exhibited outstanding service and friendliness as our house is rented. They are always prompt and helpful

Lisa and Joe have managed my rental for years. They have always made sure our unit was cared for and the tenants have all been great! They really take great care of my investment! I highly recommend their team for management!

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!
-Peggy P.
I have been renting through People's for 2 1/2 years . The staff have been very accompanying for all our needs. They call me or reply within 24 hrs of any service request I put in. The rental portal is an outstanding service..... easy to use and convenient. I would highly recommend People's Realty to anyone. The owners and staff in the Kent office is Primo.
