Video Calls & Recorded Video

“I moved to Michigan from Nevada and they were the only property management group who worked with us to look at homes via video calls and recorded video. Courtney really helped keep us in the loop and constantly updated me on any questions I had and went out of her way to make sure we got the place we wanted once we arrived in Michigan. Dee was also extremely helpful and went to any house we asked her to and helped us view the homes at times that were convenient to us with a 3 hour time difference. Loved them and am excited to continue working with them!”
