Prudential Select Properties, a provider of residential real estate services to the Greater St. Louis region, recently announced the launch of Select Leasing and Management. The property management and leasing service is designed to provide more incentives to clients to lease their home by providing them with a dedicated property management specialist to ensure the client’s home is looked after in a professional manner.
Joe Kelso will serve as the Leasing and Management director. Kelso has been rehabbing and managing single-family since 2008. His experience gives him an expert’s knowledge of the leasing and property management business.
“It is our goal to provide the best property management service in the area,” Kelso said. “Our agents and clients are very important, and we want to do everything we can to make sure their homes are looked after properly.”
The initiative will offer an array of both property management and leasing services to property owners.
Property management services include move-in and move-out inspections, rent collection, maintenance requests, 24/7 online portal access for owners and tenants, cleaning prior to new occupancy, and professional property accounting. For clients wishing to lease, the program provides pre-work, marketing and tenant-finding services. It also takes care of application reviews and background screenings, paperwork and handles the final steps to ensure a tenant is qualified to rent.
“More homeowners are viewing leasing as a necessary alternative as they plan to move out of their homes,” said Prudential Select Properties President and CEO Maryann Vitale. “Select Leasing and Management will be an ideal solution for sellers who may be struggling to make the difficult decision to sell or rent their home.”
