Single Family Property Management

Castle Gate Real Estate Group can manage all aspects of the property with excellence – from marketing and leasing to maintenance and corresponding with tenants. We have experienced vendors for coordinating any maintenance repair and renovation needed. Our vacancy rate is low due to our marketing expertise and personalized service to every rental prospect. Furthermore, because we are Realtors, too, we advertise in the local MLS, reaching thousands of Realtors, as well as numerous rental advertising outlets.

  • We will be the only contact for you and your tenants. Both the tenants and you will have our mobile phone number and email for any questions or concerns
  • Your check will be mailed by the 15th of each month (so long as the tenant pays on time). Direct Deposit is also available
  • If the tenant does not pay or they break the lease conditions, we will handle the eviction process. We have the right to charge the tenant for this; not you.
  • Any outstanding balance will be sent to a collection agency
