Top 10 Reasons to Hire A Hawaii Residential Property Management Firm
(1) Single Point of Contact:
Your Hawaii property manager is the only person at REALTY GROUP HAWAII you’ll ever have to deal with. No matter what the topic, if you have a question, you call your property manager. Our Hawaii residential property managers never delegate your questions to someone else and they’ll never hand you off to a less experienced property manager. Other companies might claim to have a single point of contact too. We actually practice it. Our property managers don’t sell real estate so they’re not busy chasing commissions. Their only responsibilities are the properties they manage. They are dedicated and accountable to you and your property.
(2) Local Knowledge of Rental Rates & Marketing Expertise:
We work with a vast network of licensed Realtors who have extensive knowledge about local rental rates. That allows us to establish rental rates that are on the mark — the highest the market will bear to give you the best return on your investment while still at a competitive level that will attract prospective tenants. Then, with years of experience in successfully marketing properties, we move your property from list to lease as fast as possible. We maximize your property’s exposure and minimize vacancies by using online and offline marketing tools that are proven to work.
(3) Property Law and Regulations:
The laws and regulations governing rental properties and tenant rights are astounding in both number and complexity. REALTY GROUP HAWAII has the extensive expertise and up-to-date knowledge to assure your compliance with local, state and federal laws and regulations. Our Hawaii residential property managers regularly attend seminars and continuing education courses to keep current with the ever-changing property and tenant laws. We also clearly communicate the legal responsibilities of all parties, eliminating unnecessary confusion of expectations. Putting your property in our capable and knowledgeable hands offers you an added layer of protection from potentially costly legal matters.
(4) Emergency Calls:
Your Hawaii property manager shields you from the multiple calls that can come from tenants at any time — day or night, weekdays or weekends, in the middle of dinner or the middle of vacation. Whether it is a routine maintenance request or an emergency call that requires immediate attention, your Hawaii property manager at REALTY GROUP HAWAII works with your tenant to understand the issue, contacts and manages the appropriate contractor to fix the problem and allows you to live your life uninterrupted.
(5) Tenant Screening:
We thoroughly pre-screen prospective tenants using a comprehensive five-point screening process that takes into account credit checks, rental history, eviction history, employment history, criminal background checks, bankruptcy proceedings and more. With our Hawaii residential property management services, you get the peace of mind of knowing your property has been rented to a reliable, responsible tenant.
(6) Rent Collection:
REALTY GROUP HAWAII has systems and strategies in place to improve rent collections and on-time rent payments. Timely and consistent rent collections are critical in today’s real estate market, where good cash flow can mean the difference between success and failure as a real estate investor.
(7) Inspection Reports:
Our Hawaii residential property managers perform photo inspections before occupancy and during and after a tenancy and submit reports to owners that include recommendations for correcting safety and maintenance issues. Routine property inspections allow us to identify defects and correct them before they worsen and require major, more expensive repair work.
(8) Security Deposit Escrow:
With state and local laws, banking requirements and owner-tenant expectations all in play, security deposits can be tricky. REALTY GROUP HAWAII manages a master security deposit escrow account to assure you are in compliance with local and state regulations. We find that tenants are far more comfortable negotiating a lease when their money is being held securely in a third party account.
(9) Financial Record Keeping:
Keeping track of the money coming in and going out can be a nightmare for some property owners. Our Hawaii residential property management services take care of all of that for you. We eliminate the bookkeeping headache entirely and make tax time a virtual breeze.
(10) Peace of Mind:
With REALTY GROUP HAWAII as your partner, you have peace of mind that you, your property and your tenants are in good hands.
If you are managing your rental property on your own, ask yourself if you are completely satisfied with how things are going. If you are experiencing any difficulties or uncertainties, give us call now before serious issues arise. REALTY GROUP HAWAII takes the stress and worry out of owning residential rental properties.

If not, give us a call and experience what professional, top-quality Hawaii residential property management services are all about.
