  The secret to good Property Management ! Have you ever wondered what the secret to good property management is? We have been managing properties since 2005 and in my opinion, the secret to good property management is slow growth. We have built this business slow and steady, learning from our mistakes along the way! There are many reasons to hire a property manager: Tenant procurement, tenant background screening, collection of rents and reporting...etc But have you ever thought about how the company came together? There are so many questions you should ponder before hiring a property manager:  Do they have only 5 properties or at least 50 properties? Have they been doing this a while building a process, or did they just jump in? Do they have systems in place to protect my investment? ...

  Have you had a "Selfie Summer"? Summer is slipping away so make the most of it! Summer is my favorite time of the year! I love patio sitting, riding our Harley, going to the beach, outdoor concerts, swimming and  the movies! I have had an awesome summer with a new grandson, a daughter graduating from college, a 1st annual family reunion, my grandaughter visiting for 6 weeks, my son getting a promotion and my baby turning 20! During all that I managed to have a record month in June with 10 closings ! Russell and I are working hard together to build our property management division while maintaining our sales and listings! We are thankful everyday for our business! So make it a "Selfie Summer" and enjoy it before it is gone!

 I sold this home to a California Buyer in 2005, he asked me to manage it for him and another one he bought! I had been in leasing apartments so I said sure I can do that. This is how I slipped into our  Property Management career!  Property Management is a niche market, not everyone is cut out to do the work and put the systems in place to work this side of the real estate market. I have learned Property Management is so much more than leasing nice homes..... We definitely have put the systems in place to help you maintain your investment. This didn't happen overnight, it took years! I  We are specialist in Property Management and work the field full time. We have developed a reputation and system for managing homes and treating all parties fairly!! Also, this particular home is being...

My clients looked at many pre-owned homes and just were not finding anything they liked. The homes needed upgrades and they were not thrilled with the floorplans. So I said "Brand new construction may be the best route for you!" I took them to  Kensington Park, a brand new subdivision in Mcclendon Chisholm located minutes from I-30 off 205! My clients loved the quality of the Altura Home, the new area, so much shopping and things to do in Rockwall and Lake Ray Hubbard! And the floor plan was amazing, over 400 square feet in ONE STORY!  They also got to pick a lot next to the pond! Mostly, they liked that the home was in Rockwall Schools, knowing this will give their children great learning opportunities. They also have a design center they get to go to to pick all of their colors and up...

Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program using Rockwall Texas FHA 203k Rehab Loans.     Many are not aware of a special government loan program that is actually a part of FHA (Federal Housing Administration- a department within HUD). A buyer or existing home owner can do meaningful amounts of remodeling or updates to their existing home without having a higher cost second lien thanks to this special FHA loan program.         However, this loan program doesn't allow for "luxury items" in your home such as a swimming pool, hot tub, or other accessories. Repaint, remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms, add wallpaper, replace appliances and flooring and even a add a room to an existing structure (which will increase the value of the homes square footage).         This loan progr...
