Good people, great customer services, takes care of my property and tenants as their own. For all the wonderful professional services I have received; I am going to be with Affordable Property Management for a very long time."
Affordable has been managed our properties for over 15 years. We are very happy with the service they provided. They are professional, responsive and trustworthy. They screen the tenants for us, fix things for us and always pay on time.
All repairs or concerns from the tenants were acted upon immediately, with the health and safety of the tenants always in the forefront. When any repairs were needed, the contractors you provided were fast and reliable, with costs and our best interest in mind.
Thank you for your support over the years. With your professional help I can consider early retirement. Eventually I will need to move back in my rental. Thank you for your professional support over the years I’ve been truly blessed by your company.
They were diligent in responding to applicants that had applied to rent my property. Management was great at consulting me on my options. This would be property management that I would recommend.
APM could not be better. I use 3 other property management companies in other areas, none of them are half as good as APM.
I used APM for the first time and I was very impressed with the level of service they provided. The staff are friendly and professional. I highly recommend them.
I’ve had a rental agreement with APM for over 10 years. The staff handled any problems I had with a professional manner. I would recommend, and HAVE recommended APM to anyone who is looking for rental property.
