Property Management

Rory James and his team at RMJ Services offer expert property management services throughout Cook and DuPage counties. Their portfolio includes long and short-term rentals and they represent local and absentee owners. No company or property is too big or too small for the team – they will deliver the same dedication and excellent service to ensure the satisfaction and profitability of every client.

RMJ Services will take away the stress of managing your rental property, and make sure you optimize your investment’s profitability. The team will help you save on costs through proactive services and maintenance, and by keeping the property occupied with quality tenants. You can be completely hands off and rest easy in the knowledge that your property is in the care of true and dedicated professionals.

Vacancy advertising

RMJ Services will handle everything that needs to be done to attract the right tenants. As a full-service real estate brokerage, they will leverage their extensive network to fill up vacancies and rent your property as quickly as possible. The work starts even before a tenant moves out of the unit to minimize vacancy time.

The team will perform the following services in filling up vacancies:

  • Advertising and listing your property
  • Showing the property to prospective tenants
  • Negotiating leasing contracts

Applicant screenings

RMJ Services will help make sure your property is rented by quality tenants.

The team is highly knowledgeable about the laws and regulations covering tenant application screening. They will perform credit and background checks, including verifying employment information and references, and comply fully with regulations without compromising your interests.

Lease preparation and execution

RMJ Services will also prepare lease agreements and have them executed by all parties concerned. These will include provisions for security and other deposits, including pet deposits, if applicable.

Property showings

RMJ Services conducts an initial walk-through of the property with the tenant, taking pictures during the process to document the condition of the home or office for both the client’s and tenant’s reference.

Pre-move-in inspections

The team performs thorough pre-move-in inspections and makes sure everyone is on the same page. RMJ Services understands the crucial nature of inspections, especially as it applies to deposits and deposit refunds. In addition to the photos taken during property showings, they keep a comprehensive checklist that details the condition of the home or office and its various features.

Rent collection

RMJ Services maintains an efficient rent collection system that makes it convenient for tenants to pay their rent and ensures payments are received on time. As one of the most crucial – and often sensitive – aspects of property management, RMJ Services pays particular attention to this to ensure everyone is in agreement.

Property maintenance and routine inspections

The team conducts regular preventive inspections and maintenance to avoid major issues that often cost more to repair. RMJ Services has developed excellent relationships with licensed contractors and various services, which they leverage to keep the cost of services low without sacrificing quality. However, if the client has preferred services, RMJ Services will continue to work with them.

Handling maintenance requests

Any maintenance request by tenants goes directly to RMJ Services, who promptly responds to them using the services of licensed contractors. RMJ Services understands that many renters make their property choice based on the reputation of the property management company. The team goes the extra mile to ensure tenants are happy with the way the property is managed and their concerns are handled, thus encouraging them to stay, come back, or provide referrals.

24/7 accessibility in emergencies

As property management professionals, RMJ Services understands the need to always be on call for any emergency. The team is accessible 24/7 to respond to any emergency and make sure it is addressed in the best possible way.

Key management

When managing property, dealing with keys can be more of a hassle than one would think. RMJ Services systematically keeps track of who has the keys to the property at any given time. The team also handles adding new keys and issuing needed keys to tenants, staff, and contractors.

Move-out inspections

RMJ Services performs thorough move-out inspections using a checklist that includes all the necessary details. The findings are compared to those during move-in and routine inspections, and any potential concerns are discussed with the tenants and owners.

Cleaning between tenants

The team will arrange for comprehensive cleaning after a tenant moves out to prepare the property for new tenant showings.

Accurate and timely accounting

RMJ Services boasts an efficient and accurate accounting system and ensures easy and timely access of files and documents by their clients. The team provides owners/investors with the needed financial statements and other documents for tax reporting and other uses.
