Affordability

We are mindful of the cost of managing your home and property, therefore you can afford to have the convenience of home management without the high cost of hiring full-time help. We will check your property based on your preferences, such as weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or any schedule you decide. Costs are determined on a per-visit basis.

 

When Problems Occur We Handle It!

You can count on professional handling of your property and home issues. We notify you of any problems and make recommendations to correct them. We put our knowledge of community trades people to work for you.

We will organize the necessary service, if specialist engineers are required we will meet with the repair person and admit them into your home. We will stay until the repair person has completed his/her work, set alarms and lock up following their departure. We can also send digital photo of problems or completed repairs by email. The property owner is the person who decides what exact repair is to be done and how much money is to be spent. The homeowner has full control and the final say, regarding the satisfaction or outcome of work completed.

How Is A Crisis Situation Handled?

When a crisis occurs (and they do!) you will have peace-of-mind because you have a professional service in place to handle these upsetting events.

A crisis is handled on the spot. There may not be time to call the homeowner to get pre-approval for expenditures in this case. The main concern in a crisis is to get the situation under control as fast as possible. You will be called as soon as it is feasible. Many times a homeowner can not be reached immediately and the situation cannot wait. Your crisis may need an immediate plumber, electrician, sewer technician or handyman before we can locate you. We completely handle any crisis. We focus solely on our business and we have the highest reputation to prove it!
