“We just rented a property managed by Real Property Management Colorado and they were all very friendly, and made it super easy for us to move in. We went from the application process, to signing the lease and moving in all in three days!”
– Todd S., Colorado
“My wife and I are very pleased with how you are managing our property. We are considering buying another rental property and will definitely use you as our property manager. Thank you.“
– Joselito G., California
Real Property Management Central Arkansas is dedicated to providing exceptional property management services for landlords and tenants alike. We believe there is no other way to be excellent in property management than to focus on addressing the needs of both tenants and landlords. If only one of those two parties is happy, it’s a sign that something is amiss. That’s why we make a point to be proactive for all of our clients, addressing needs before they turn into major issues. In Todd’s circumstance, we were able to be expedient and it made a big difference in his life! In Joselito’s case, they have been so pleased with their experience that they are interested in having us manage a second rental property for them!
Pieces Of The Puzzle
In today’s blog, we’d like to highlight the various components of our property management services — communication, marketing, tenant screening, leasing, rent collection maintenance, inspections, eviction, and accounting. Each of these elements help separate us from other property management companies, both locally and nationally. If you are looking for one that you can count on to be affordable, reliable, and proactive, read on to find out what Real Property Management Central Arkansas has to offer!
While most property managers will pay lip service to communication, proactive, clear communication pervades every aspect of our operations. We make sure tenants, clients, and our own staff are all on the same page in terms of expectations, logistics, turnaround times on projects, and beyond. What’s more, we provide you online, 24/hr access to your account, available from anywhere in the world! You can always stay up to date from the convenience of a computer or phone. If you’d ever like to speak to a representative, we have a specialized staff that is available to answer any questions you might have — even if it has to do with optimizing your return on investment or other nuanced aspects of managing your property!
Marketing & Advertising
Speaking of more nuanced aspects of your account, we do much more than make sure nothing goes wrong, effectively settling for the status quo. We understand, just like you do, that empty properties means lost revenue. And each day that goes by where that apartment remains unoccupied, it becomes more and more of an issue
This is why we are dedicated to spending thousands of dollars each month on marketing and advertising campaigns to make sure our clients get their vacancies filled as soon as possible. Utilizing our vast network of classified and rental websites, combined with traditional mediums of advertising (sticking a “For Rent” sign in front of your complex still works, folks) gives you complete coverage to find qualified tenants.
Before we get to the advertising and marketing, our experts will work closely with you to discuss to key elements of the process:
- Using a comprehensive analysis of property condition, recent upgrades, school districts, access to transportation, competitor rates, and general location, we will help you determine the ideal monthly rental rate for the type of tenant you are seeking to attract.
- We’ll make sure your actual property is rent-ready for a high-quality tenant by offering our recommendations to make your property more attractive in terms of cleanliness, code compliance, landlord insurance, maintenance issues, and more.

Tenant Screening & Selection
Once our marketing efforts have yielded a pool of high-quality candidates, we can proceed to screening and selecting tenants. This aspect of the process is potentially the most significant one, as placing the wrong tenant in your property can almost immediately cost you what you would be saving by managing the apartment by yourself.
This is why we take a look at the big picture while leaving no stone unturned at the same time. We evaluate each tenant based on their employment verification, rental history, sex offender registery, criminal background, and credit. Naturally, all of our screenings comply with applicable laws, including the Fair Housing and Fair Credit Reporting acts.
After we’ve all agreed that we’ve found the right tenant for your property, we’ll schedule the lease signing and a move-in condition assessment with the approved tenant. We take care of everything while making sure you are involved and informed at all times!
We provide a leasing agent who manages the lease signing, ensuring that all legal aspects of the agreement are in place. Next, your agent will collect deposits, rent, and fees that are due. All of this information is available on your online account. Then the leasing agent will conduct a walk-through to evaluate the condition of the property — a vital aspect for both the tenant and landlord!
Timely Rent Collection
We understand how crucial collecting rent payments is to your cash flow. We make a point to be professional yet strict when we are collecting rent through a systematic and diligent process. Essentially, we will go to bat for you in a variety of ways. Tenants are incentivized to make sure they pay rent on time, and we make sure that they are treated respectfully and fairly.
Regular Inspections & Reliable Maintenance
We conduct move-in, periodic, and move-out inspections as part of our property management services in Little Rock and greater Central Arkansas. We photograph all findings to provide documentation if and when we need it. This helps you maintain your home’s value in the long-run.
In the same vein, we have a network of reliable contractors and vendors (along with an in-house staff) to manage property maintenance and necessary repair work.
Even with careful selection of tenants, evictions are unavoidable at times. Our staff has a deep knowledge of all relevant laws as they relate to the terms of our leases, so we are able to move quickly and effectively when needed. Make sure you ask us about eviction protection when you get the chance!
Finally, we provide comprehensive accounting services for your property, keeping track of your income and expenses using a centralized system. Our reporting and accounting system houses financial information, tax documentation, and itemized statements — all consolidated in one place.
