Legal fees can put you out of business if you use the wrong forms. We use Florida Association of Realtor FAR/BAR leases, agreements and addendums that have attorneys stamp of approval to ensure the best protection of our clients against tenants wanting out of their contractual obligations.

FACT! We triple-market your rental!+

1st We place a FOR RENT sign on the property (if allowed) with our phone #, website and a Text-to-Rent code which allows a potential renter to get instant info and photos of your rental listing right on their mobile phone. We receive a notice when they inquire and then call the potential renter to set an appointment.

2nd We place your rental on our local MLS (Multiple Listing Service) which is then linked to over 50 other sites including realtor.com, zillow.com, frontdoor.com, hotpads.com, trulia.com, backpage.com, local.com, oodle.com, vast.com, craigslist and many more giving your property the most exposure for finding quality renters quickly.

3rd And most importantly, we begin showing your unit as soon as the current tenant gives us their notice to vacate, not after they vacate like most others do. This delay may cost you an entire month’s rent, or more!

FACT! We triple screen your tenants!+

These days, you simply cannot judge a tenant by their character alone. We run a detailed credit history report, verify their rental history and all sources of income and even ensure they do not have a criminal or sex offender background, all within 3 business days of the application submission date.

FACT! We keep maintenance costs down!+

  1. We offer affordable maintenance and repair, painting and cleaning services to ensure the job is done right.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Lazy Lake Area Information

Lazy Lake Property Managers

In 1946, a developer and contractor by the name of Hal Ratliff, began the process of building the community around an old rock quarry (which later was filled with water and became the village's artificial lake.) He had the help of architect Clinton Gamble, who designed the original homes, and financier and accountant Charles H. Lindfors, who initially bought the land. Ratliff's goal was to build a community that was low-key, with heavy forestry infrastructure, allowing neighbors to keep to themselves and have some anonymity. Lazy Lake received its name when a friend of Hal Ratliff remarked that the lake looked "so lazy and peaceful."

It is the smallest incorporated municipality in Broward County by population and by area. This low population was because the town originally had been composed of single family homes in a small housing development, with a lake named Lazy Lake, (its namesake,) in the middle of the houses surrounding it. The village started off with 13 homes on 13 acres (the maximum allowed by the charter.) The three homes of the three main founders of the village were the first to be built on the property, which was originally platted for a subdivision. Source From Wikipedia
