Property Management Interview Questions to Ask

We will deal with the daily inconveniences of handling maintenance calls, pursuing late rent payments, dealing with tenant complaints and screening prospective tenants so that you don’t have to. We make sure that your properties are leased to qualified tenants and that they are properly maintained. Jamison Management Company views your property as an income-generating business. Our goal is to keep your income high and your expenses low. Because we manage multiple properties in the area and have been using our vendors for years, we are able to achieve the lowest costs when using third party contractors for any of our maintenance needs. Furthermore, we have our own in-house maintenance staff that allows us to attend to most maintenance requests very quickly and at a very reasonable cost. Our property management company maintains a high standard of reliability and accountability, and gives our owners the true peace of mind that comes with knowing that their property is in the best hands possible.

Once I start with Jamison Management Company, who handles my property?
Who do tenants call?

If your property is 16 units or larger, you will have a resident manager responsible for the daily activities of your property, such as cleaning the common areas, posting notices, collecting rents and communicating with tenants. You will also be assigned an experienced Property Supervisor familiar with the area in which your property is located. The Property Supervisor will assist your resident manager and will be your main point of contact via cell phone or email. Many questions can also be answered by our staff, including bookkeepers, maintenance supervisors and staff members. You can also access your financial information online through our website clicking on "Owner Web Access" under the Owner Tab.

How do you advertise your vacancies?

Jamison Management Company markets vacancies by whatever means that have proven effective. We start the marketing process as soon as we are advised of a vacancy. We place ads on our website as well as on Craigslist, Westside Rentals, Southbay Rentals and many other online rental searches as we deem necessary. We update these ads EVERY DAY until your vacancy is rented. Because of our reputation many prospects contact our office for a free list of our vacancies and look at our website on a daily basis. Applicants are also able to apply directly through our website. We will also put eye catching signs and banners on your property giving rental prospects access to our services. We can also place print ads in local papers, provide tenant incentives and distribute flyers to help increase your leasing traffic. Furthermore, our resident managers leverage our large network of properties to promote our vacancies at other properties that we manage.

How often do you visit the property?

When a property first comes under our management, an interior and exterior inspection is scheduled as soon as possible to determine if there are any health and safety issues which need to be addressed. During this inspection, we review your property for water leaks, mold and mildew, water heaters being double strapped, for any faulty sprinkler heads and that all units have the required smoke detectors in each room as required by law. At that time we also inspect the property for any trip hazards and required maintenance. If there is a vacancy, the property will be shown as appointments and open houses are scheduled. Once the property is full and the initial inspection has been done, the Property Supervisor will visit the property regularly, at least once a month. All interiors of units are inspected a minimum of twice a year.

Who collects rent?

Tenants who have an on-site manager will pay their rent directly to their on-site manager. All other tenants can pay rent by either mailing or dropping it off at our office. When rent is received it is immediately placed in our trust account. Any expenses incurred by your property will be paid out of the rent collected during the month. The remaining funds, less the required reserve balance, will be distributed to our owners around the 25th of every month via check or electronic transfer. You will receive your monthly financial statements around the third business day of the following month.

What happens if there is an emergency after business hours?

When you hire Jamison Management Company, we become responsible for your property 24 hours a day. We have a 24 hour emergency number available to our tenants and there is always a senior staff member on call to quickly address emergencies. We also have access to vendors who can respond in an emergency, no matter what the hour.
