Our Garland property management office is composed of professional property managers who will guide you every step of the way.

We live and work locally in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, with local knowledge of the Garland area.

Better Tenant Screening for Our Garland Property Managers
If you’re new to the rental property management industry, you may not be aware of just how important a rigorous tenant screening process is. Sure, you can always hope a great tenant will come along and rent out your home, but our process checks credit and criminal background and verifies employment and rental history, so you’ll have a better idea of what kind of tenant they are. We’ll call the tenant’s previous landlords and references to see if they paid rent on time and/or left any damage to their previous dwelling.
Rent Collection Online
Everything’s online now, so shouldn’t rent collection be, too? At Specialized Property Management, we take advantage of a straightforward rent collection system that allows tenants to pay their rent from their online web portal. Funds are sent through ACH into your account for a quick and easy payment. When a tenant stops paying rent, we have an automated collections process that goes into effect right away, saving you time and hassle in property management. Garland, TX, rental owners trust our proven processes and systems.
24/7 Maintenance Hotline
Dealing with maintenance issues is just one of the realities Garland property managers have to face. At SPM Dallas, we make it easier for you with our 24/7 maintenance hotline. We’ll answer phone calls and emails from tenants at all times of the day or night so you don’t have to. We’ll keep you and your tenant updated on the status of the work order so everyone is aware of the latest developments.
A lot of our investors don’t live near their rental property, but we understand the need to still know what’s going on from far away. Our online reporting system lets you access photos of your rental property and see updates in real-time. We also offer our rental property owners a centralized accounting system whether they own one home or several!
Routine Property Inspections
Your property deserves to be maintained and inspected even while you have a tenant living in it. That’s why at SPM Dallas, we recommend quarterly property inspections from a licensed home inspector. Home inspectors will check that all major maintenance issues are reported, and verify lease compliance at the same time.
Part of becoming a successful Garland property manager is knowing the rules and regulations associated with rental homeownership. But we realize that not every landlord has the spare time to study up on all the laws required. That’s why our in-house legal counsel stays up to date on all trust accounting, fair housing, property code, and other landlord & tenant regulations. We do it so that you don’t have to! We promise to minimize your financial and legal risk and save you from paying expensive fines.
