Hey Wallace,
 
Our place is beautiful!  We are so happy with the decision to rent from you.

I L♥VE it when A PLAN comes together.  I got a 12 month old townhouse to manage in December.  The owner had lived there 6 months and been transferred and moved out in early January.

I ONLY had the developer model photos AND floor plans for my marketing and I started posting the property on Craigslist in December.  I showed it twice to people who were not moving for several months and then these residents saw the townhouse online.

They needed to move-mid January.  He was in training in NY for his new job and she was finishing a teaching job in HAWAII.  They leased it sight-unseen from my very pooring marketing materials.

I had the townhouse cleaned and the carpets done professionally once the owner vacated and I delivered a Hawaiian anthurium plant to his office with the keys the day before he was scheduled to move in!

After cleaning, I took MUCH better interior and exterior photos of the property for my NEXT marketing efforts.

Wallace,

You can't go wrong quoting The A Team. That was always my favorite part of the show. Congrats on the management

Wallace, 

Way to go on taking care of it for your clients.  I know how important photos are.  I even take outside photos when it's spring and blooming for future use in leasing marketing efforts. 

All the best, Michelle
