Why EquityTeam?

OuR Track Record / Reputation

It’s not easy maintaining a 4+ online rating, especially when you’re in the middle of the Owner / Tenant relationship. Our reviews are from real people, with real experiences (not paid for).

Our Team Approach

We believe successful property management requires great people and processes. We will assign a team of three uniquely-skilled professionals to each property:

  • PORTFOLIO MANAGER (Owner Advocate)
    You will ALWAYS have an experienced and professional “Portfolio Manager” (account manager) who’s dedicated to the success of your portfolio. Their #1 responsibility is to treat your property like it’s their own and to advocate for your best interests.
  • LEASING MANAGER (Tenant Advocate)
    We believe tenants are important customers and should have their own advocate. Our “Leasing Manager” and Leasing Team act as the primary contact for our tenants from application through move-out.

  • PROPERTY SERVICES MANAGER (Property Advocate)
    Your property needs an expert in residential property construction and repairs looking out for its best interest, so every property is assigned a “Property Services Manager” who oversees all maintenance, make-ready’s, inspections, etc.

Reviews

“Very reliable, responsive, transparent and professional. I simply could not ask for more. Maintenance is great, reports are thorough and on time, I have had previous experience with another management company and the difference is night and day. I have also recommended EquityTeam to many other friends and owners who are very happy with their choice to work with ET. Start with the customer – find out what they want and give it to them.”

“I had a property I couldn’t sell and “tried” to be a landlord. I wish I would have turned the property over to the EquityTeam years ago. They are professional, honest, and quick to answer any questions you have. It was hard for me to turn such a big investment over to someone else, but they have done a wonderful job with my property. They found me a great tenant in 7 days after listing it! The burden off of me allows me to focus on my family and I feel confident that my property is in good hands.”

“I tried unsuccessfully renting my property from afar. I contacted 3 different prop mgrs and I NAILED IT. They have a thorough process and solid resources for repairs/remodel/touchups. My duplex needed some serious rehab and turned out far better than I thought and got a tenant for better value than I anticipated. I like details and good communication (and good tenants) – I got that with EquityTeam!”
