Highlight of Our Services
Fast Leasing, Good Tenants +
Owning an investment property and watching it sit vacant is extremely frustrating. We have an arsenal of methods to get you good quality tenants as quickly as possible. We use a combination of traditional methods (sign in yard, agent communications) and modern methods (MLS, 3rd-party site postings, this web site). Once an application is received, tenants will go through a detailed screening process prior to being approved. Also, we stay in contact with you during the leasing process with regular updates
Excellent Pricing +
Don't be fooled by management companies who quote low management fees, only to "nickel and dime" you with additional fees for services that should be included. Also, we DO NOT charge you when your property is vacant. This gives us incentive to get you a tenant. That is why our pricing structure is designed so that we don't get paid unless you are getting paid. The following pricing structure makes us unique:
- No fees charged when the property is vacant.
- No eviction fees--only actual expenses are passed through to owners.
- No repair coordination fees--only actual repair costs are pass through to owners.
- We charge a very low leasing fee of 50% of one month's rent and 10% for renewals
- We charge a management fee that varies depending on the number of units managed.
- We charge no other fees.
Consider us to manage your property. Are you managing your property yourself but tired of the hassles? Or, do you have an average property manager who does not maintain the property or communicate with you? These are some key areas where we provide real value as your property manager.
Quality Management +
Our management approach places our owners in the driver's seat, giving them choices that our competitors don't offer. Yes, each month we collect rents for our owners and send them the proceeds, but that is not all we do. Our goal is for our owners to have peace of mind, knowing their property is in good hands. We provide open communications, fair but firm rent collection, repair coordination, monthly and annual statements, HOA / city code issue resolution, and eviction services. We work hard to keep our owners up-to-speed and are available 7 days a week.
We utilize a multi-pronged approach when marketing your property. This includes a sign in the yard, listing in the MLS, and exposure across multiple web sites. Also, we partner with other area property managers to exchange tenants for mutual benefit. With a vacancy rate of 2 - 4%, we get results!
You care about your property and want good tenants who will pay the rent on time and keep up with maintenance. One bad tenant can kill your cash flow. That is why we go beyond simple credit checks and carefully review a number of tenant credentials:
- credit checks
- criminal history checks
- sex offender database scan
- previous rental history
- employment verification
By keeping the bad tenants out, we protect your investment and cut down on the probability of evictions, tenant damages, and (thus) your expenses.
Accounting, Rent Collection and Disbursement+
As a property owner, you are the boss . . .
- Rent Collection: Our tenants have multiple ways to deliver the rent. We use a fair but firm approach to rent collection and get our owners in the loop when necessary.
- Accounting: Our owners receive a monthly statement which can be delivered either via regular mail or paperless (with emailed statements/receipts and direct deposit of funds). Annual statements are delivered each year.
- Evictions: Because of our careful screening techniques, we have very few evictions. However, we do perform evictions if necessary at no extra charge.

Cross Roads Area Information
Cross Roads is at the junction of Farm roads 59 and 3441 in southwestern Henderson County. The town was founded in 1846 by the Reverend Hezekiah Mitcham and his wife Mary Clarke Mitcham who had come from Marengo Co. Alabama according that county's 1830 Census. The earliest settlement was called Science Hill. In 1885 the Wildcat post office was opened at the site with George B. Thompson as postmaster. By 1892 the community had three cotton gins, a general store, and several other establishments, but the Wildcat post office closed in 1905. The community was also referred to as Thompson's Mill because of a water-powered mill built in 1871 by D. M. Thompson on Wildcat Creek. Cross Roads, as a named community, traces its origins to the early 1890s. A brush-arbor camp meeting of Baptists was held at the point where the road from Athens to Wildcat Ferry and the road from Malakoff to Palestine crossed, and gave the location the name "Cross Roads." The first permanent building in the area was a church, which was erected after the Union-Center school moved from Thompson's Mill to the Cross Roads location. In 1908 a one-room school was erected; it was taught by Sam Holland, who later became district judge of Henderson County. In the early part of the twentieth century numerous gins, gristmills, and other businesses supportive of an agricultural community thrived at Cross Roads. There was a post office there until World War I, and a courthouse was built to house the justice of the peace court. Source
