Getting Started

When you choose Wakefield, REALTORS as your property management company, the next steps are simple. We will:

Prepare a Residential Leasing and Property Management Agreement and associated addendums for you to sign.

Here is what we ask of you.

Trust us. Allow us to exercise good judgment on your behalf and manage to the terms of your Management Agreement, contacting you only when requests exceed our authorized level of approval.

Allow us to communicate with you via email when possible. Communication is often a challenge due to busy schedules and communicating across multiple time zones, and we have found email to be the most effective way to overcome most obstacles. Email can typically be received and sent even while you are traveling, and it can be accessed anytime. Email also provides written documentation for both parties, which eliminates potential miscommunication.

Thank you for placing your trust is us! We are looking forward to partnering with you to provide excellent customer service to our tenants.
