Competent, Comprehensive Property Management in Kent

We’re successful because we treat every property we manage as if it were our own investment. We treat it like it’s the home we live in, which ensures we’re responsive to tenants and to owners.

We know that owning investment property makes smart financial sense. But, we also know that it isn’t easy. The laws, rules, requirements, time commitment involved means it’s hard to do it well. That’s why we’re here; to take all those headaches and every hassle off your plate. We’re the local experts when it comes to Kent property management, and we put our years of experience and depth of knowledge to good use for you.

People’s Real Estate and Property Management provides the support you need when it comes to successfully renting out a home. We’re ready to customize our management packages to fit your needs. We offer our owners and investors all the tools, expertise, and professionalism they need.

Lower Vacancy Costs and Highly Qualified Tenants

Vacancy costs can add up quickly, and while it’s part of owning property, it shouldn’t be something that eats into your investment returns. You need a consistent rental income, and that means lower vacancy and turnover rates. We help you achieve that, by ensuring you’re offering a well-maintained home that’s managed with the tenant’s needs in mind.

We also pay attention to pricing, and we analyze the current market trends to ensure your property rents quickly to the most qualified tenants. We bring strategic marketing plans, flexible showing schedules, and great communication with prospective tenants.

Our screening process includes verifying employment, income, and past rental references. We look for evictions and criminal records. We examine credit and debt. The result is a well-qualified resident who will help us care for your Kent rental property.

We lease single-family and multi-family properties in all Kent neighborhoods and communities.

Protecting your Investment with Responsive Maintenance

A good maintenance plan starts with preventative efforts. We keep your repair costs low by fixing problems while they’re manageable and inexpensive. There’s no need to let that dripping faucet turn into a full-scale leak. Our team is available 24 hours a day to respond to emergencies. We have an automated and efficient system to handle routine repair requests. Tenants know we’re responsive and available, and our team of vendors and contractors are the best in Kent.

The laws are always changing, and we make it our business to keep up. We understand fair housing and we’ll keep you out of legal trouble. Everything we do on your behalf complies with all federal, state, and local laws.

We help owners throughout Kent, including those in zip code 98032.

Efficient and Effective Community Association Management

Community associations are special to us. We have experience working with association boards and homeowners to ensure everything runs smoothly and effectively. We’ll work with you to collect dues and follow-up on fees. We’ll take care of violations and communication. It’s our goal to keep your community pleasant and productive.

As professional property managers in Kent and the surrounding communities, we care about your neighborhood and your residents. We know you do, too. Count on us to take care of the accounting, budgeting, board meetings, and distribution of minutes. We can step in wherever you need a little extra support and administrative help.

The community associations we work with count on our team to take care of managing the many details that come with running an effective and transparent volunteer board.

Free Rental Analysis

Knowing the rental value of your Auburn investment property is crucial to earning as much as you can on your investment. The market is fluid and changing all the time. But don’t worry – we keep up. Talk to us about your rental property or your entire portfolio. We’ll take a look at your home and evaluate its location, size, condition, and amenities. We know the local tenants and what they’re willing to pay. We’ll find the right price.

Remember that overpricing your home can be just as catastrophic financially as under-pricing it. You don’t want a long vacancy period, and you don’t want to attract tenants who have been rejected elsewhere. Count on our data and experience – we’ll find just the right rent.

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.

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.
