Our Property Management Services

Property Marketing

Before listing a property, we conduct a comprehensive market analysis to understand local rental trends, demand, and competition.

This analysis guides our pricing strategy and helps us target the right demographic for the property.

We believe in the power of visual storytelling. That's why we invest in professional photography and videography to showcase each property's unique features and amenities.

Stunning visuals help capture the attention of potential tenants and showcase the property in the best possible light.

We leverage a variety of online platforms, including rental listing websites, social media channels, and our own website, to promote available properties.

Each listing is carefully crafted with engaging descriptions and eye-catching visuals to attract interest and generate inquiries.

In addition to traditional open houses, we offer virtual tours to accommodate prospective tenants who may not be able to attend in person.

These tours provide a convenient way for individuals to explore the property remotely and get a feel for its layout and amenities.


Tenant Screening

At Ratner Property Management, we understand the importance of selecting reliable and responsible tenants who will treat your property with care and respect.

Our thorough tenant screening process helps us identify qualified applicants and mitigate potential risks.

Prospective tenants interested in renting one of our properties are required to complete a detailed rental application. This application collects information such as employment history, income verification, rental history, and references.

We contact previous landlords to verify rental history and obtain references. This allows us to gain insight into the applicant's past rental behavior, such as their payment history, property upkeep, and adherence to lease agreements.

We check for any prior evictions or landlord-tenant disputes to assess the applicant's rental track record and identify any potential risks.

Property Maintenance

We conduct regular inspections of each property to identify any maintenance issues or potential problems before they escalate.

These inspections may include both interior and exterior areas, as well as common areas and amenities.

We prioritize open and responsive communication with both property owners and tenants.

Tenants are encouraged to report maintenance issues promptly through our online portal, email, or phone.

Our property management team promptly addresses these requests and keeps owners informed of any necessary repairs or maintenance work.

We implement preventive maintenance programs to prolong the lifespan of property systems and components, reduce the likelihood of unexpected repairs, and minimize downtime.


This may include regular servicing of HVAC systems, plumbing inspections, roof maintenance, and other preventive measures tailored to the specific needs of each property.

In the event of emergencies such as water leaks, power outages, or security issues, our property management team is available 24/7 to respond promptly and address the situation.

We have protocols in place to handle emergencies efficiently and minimize disruption for tenants and property owners.

Rent Collection

At Ratner Property Management, we understand that consistent and timely rent collection is crucial for the financial success of your investment property.

Our streamlined rent collection process ensures that rental income is collected efficiently while maintaining positive tenant relationships. Here's how we handle rent collection:

We start by establishing clear lease terms regarding rent amount, due date, acceptable payment methods, and late fees.

Our leases outline the tenant's obligations regarding rent payment, providing clarity and accountability from the beginning of the tenancy.

We offer convenient online payment options for tenants to submit their rent payments securely and efficiently.

This may include electronic funds transfer, credit card payments, or online payment portals accessible through our website or property management software.
