Agent Referral Fee
When a qualified tenant is found and a lease is signed, a commission is due to the agent that showed the property to the tenant (current industry standard is around $300).

This is my third property management company in 4 years, and I so wish that I had found them first. The last company nickel and dimed me to death with repairs. Since I am an out of town owner, I couldn’t be sure if the tenant had a real problem, or the management company was making work for their bottom line. I did not get a full check in the year that I was with them. It has been three months now that I have been with Shelter, and I have received three full months of rent, hallelujah. I know that things can go wrong in a unit, but not so often as with the previous company. Shelter has resigned two of my tenants, one with a two year lease, OMG. The property management business is a thankless job with a majority being bottom feeders, but Shelter is different. If you own property you owe it to yourself to give them a try.

I do not give five stars lightly but I never lost sleep over how my house was being managed. They kept in contact with me regarding lease renewals and issues with the house. The best thing was when I took the house back, my property manager Cathy, helped me get the house situated and has a valuable Rolodex on businesses I can contact. Even after I stopped renting, Cathy was there every step of the way helping me get the house in order. That is what I call Customer Service!
Tried selling my home by myself without using a realtor. I was even willing to pay buyers realtor at 3%. Still no real takers. I feel alot of realtors refuse to show FSBO. I was connected with Tony and Brittney through a friend and sold the house on the first day of them listing it. They were there the whole way and even when I had issues with my property managers resolving the issues with my house from past renters, Tony sent out his guy to help. All and all he helped make selling the house one less stress in this process.
