Company Description

The Mike Dunfee Group is here to serve, and help educate property owners. Owners share similar frustrations that sometimes rise to the level of needing a Management Company for guidance and service. Listed below are some common property owner "pain points" based on daily conversations with frustrated owners:

As a property owner, are you experiencing any of these situations? 

  • Tenant not paying rent on-time? What do I need to do?
  • Vacancy? What steps do I take now? How much will my property rent for?
  • What do I need to do to get my property ready to rent? 
  • Why is my property taking too long to rent out?
  • How can I guarantee that I get a good tenant? 
  • Maintenance / Repair Issues?  
  • Should I, or can I evict my tenant? What are my legal rights? Tenant rights?
  • Do you do evictions? How much does it cost? How long does it take?

The challenges listed above may or may not describe your situation. Our primary goal is to listen and learn about your specific objectives and guide you through any and all steps needed. 

The list of services below are a summary for your initial review. Other services that are not included in this summary can be discussed and included as part of the program we can tailor for you.  

The actual fees will be determined once we have an opportunity to discuss all of your needs and expectations, and tour your property to assess condition, location, features and amenities. We tailor our services to best meet your needs and expectations.
