Who we are
Real Property Management Gateway is a family owned and well established property management firm that represents the St. Louis Region with quality, professionalism, and knowledge. We are part of Real Property Management a national property management franchise which gives our clients peace of mind knowing their property's are in good hands.
What we do
Real Property Management Gateway manages everything from Single Family Homes to Commercial Space, so whether you have one home or 100 we can help protect and grow your asset. Our professional services include but aren't limited to on-going communication, strict and compliant evictions, timely rent collections, comprehensive marketing and advertising, thorough tenant screening and selection, full-service leasing, regular inspections, cost-effective and reliable maintenance, and comprehensive accounting.
Real Property Management Gateway makes every effort to keep you informed about your property. A secure online account provided by our team keeps you updated on property activity, including vacancies, leasing, maintenance, inspections and financial reports. Whether you live a few blocks from your rental property or hundreds of miles away, you can monitor the activity of your property from the convenience of your computer, 24 hours a day anywhere in the world.
In addition to your online portal communication you will receive a Portfolio Manager who will study and understand the ins and outs of your investment.
Strict and Compliant Evictions
Even with careful placement there is occasionally a tenant who needs to be evicted. Our staff is extremely knowledgeable in state and local landlord/tenant laws. If the tenant does not pay rent on time or breaches the terms of the lease, we initiate the proper legal steps necessary, in the fastest possible time frame, to minimize your costs and get the property leased again.
Ask us about eviction protection. For property owners who opt for this plan, the local office will pay for the eviction should it become necessary.
Timely Rent Collections
Nothing affects your cash flow more than late or missing rent payments. We collect the rent every month and deposit it into your account expeditiously. Our collection processes are professional but tough, and we are extremely diligent in collecting rent through a systematic, timely process.
Tenants are offered a variety of ways to pay rent and incentives for paying rent on time, so you can get your money as quickly as possible. In addition, we treat each tenant respectfully and fairly, as a positive relationship with a tenant leads to timely rent payments as well as better care for your property.
Comprehensive Advertising and Marketing
For each day your property is vacant, that’s money out of your pocket. Professional management costs are easily offset by shorter vacancy times. We spend thousands of dollars every month advertising our vacancies to get them filled – faster. Your property is advertised on high traffic rental and classified websites in addition to our website and social media platforms. A professional “For Rent” yard sign adds exposure to capture drive-by prospective tenants. Our experienced leasing agents respond promptly to inquiries and advise prospective tenants on details about the property, and show your home in the best possible light.
Prior to marketing and advertising your rental property, our experts also advise you in two important areas:
- 1. Setting a competitive monthly rental rate based on a comprehensive analysis of property condition, upgrades, school districts, location and access to transportation, and area rental market rates.
- 2. Getting your home ready to rent faster, to a high quality tenant, by providing recommendations and guidance on how to make your property rent-ready.
Thorough Tenant Screening and Selection
Placing the wrong tenant can quickly cost you what you save by managing a property yourself. Every tenant application is evaluated based on credit, criminal background, sex offender registry (where allowed by law), employment verification and residency/rental history. Our thorough screening complies with all applicable laws, including Fair Housing and Fair Credit Reporting Act.
When we have found a qualified tenant we schedule lease signing and a move-in condition assessment with the approved tenant.
Your leasing agent manages the lease signing with the approved tenant, using our professionally prepared lease, and ensures that all proper contracts are executed correctly. At the same time, rents, deposits and any fees are collected in accordance with local legal and financial regulations, and recorded in your online account. We also provide professional tenant education at lease signing.
Finally, the leasing agent and approved tenant conduct a walk-through to document conditions. This important walk-through assists in accurately assessing any changes in conditions when the tenant moves out.
Professional inspections of your property both inside and out are beneficial to ensure tenants are complying with the terms of their lease and to assess property conditions.
Local Real Property Management offices typically conduct move-in, periodic, and move-out inspections. Documentation and photographs from these inspections assist in determining needed maintenance and repairs to maintain your home’s value and avoid costly repairs if left unattended.
Cost Effective, Reliable Maintenance
Maintenance is a necessary expense in owning a rental property, and the return on your investment can be significantly impacted without timely, cost-effective repairs and upkeep. When handled by us, you’ll save time and money and ensure repairs are completed in a professional manner, by trustworthy maintenance personnel.
Each Real Property Management office has an extensive network of contractors, vendors and in-house staff to handle property maintenance and repair work. In addition, our exclusive partnerships with national and local vendors provide the professional level of service to our clients and customers that has come to be expected.
Our goal is to maximize your income and minimize your expenses. To keep track of your income and expenses we use a centralized accounting system. This all-inclusive accounting and reporting system, backed with itemized statements and tax documentation, keeps all your property management financial information organized in one place.
Real Property Management Gateway provides each property owner client a password protected online account. This online portal allows for easy access to your portfolio 24/7. Statements, leases, inspections, and other important documents are available online, all the time. We also make it easy for tenants to pay their rent online.
What makes us different?
While most property management companies are about growing their numbers, we are about growing our relationships. We believe in treating others with respect, courtesy, honesty and professionalism.
We manage your property like we would manage one of our own. We will always communicate openly and honestly about your properties and our portfolio manager is committed to providing you with a long-term management strategy that coincides with your goals.
We never forget that serving our clients is a privilege not a right. If you are looking for an ethical property management company we would love to hear from you, and show you why our clients see us as the key to protecting their investment!
