One of the best property management companies I've ever rented from!! I worked with Becca who was professional, responsive and always took the time to talk to me and make me feel like a priority. Any concerns or problems I had were handled immediately. If I was staying in the area, they would be my first choice to rent from.

Determining Rental Value
Insightful and always up-to-date, we draw on our thorough market knowledge to identify the ideal potential monthly income for each individual property.
Preparing Your Property
To achieve the highest possible rent for your asset, our expert property manager will conduct a walk-through of your home after each tenancy to determine what up-keep/maintenance should be done.
Signage, online advertising, open house events, and listings on our own website—our marketing strategies are multifaceted to guarantee your property’s exposure to the largest market in the shortest amount of time. We also handle the resulting calls/emails from prospective tenants, saving you valuable time.
Vacancies are expensive for us, as well as for our clients. To ensure the highest quality tenant for your property, we carefully screen for credit, employment, rental history, income and other criteria.
Move-in & Move-out Paperwork
We begin a positive partnership with tenants with a Property Condition Report at move-in, which establishes a legal agreement on the condition of the property. Once it’s time to move out, we conduct a thorough inspection of your home to assess any damage the tenant may be responsible for, arrange for repairs and maintenance, and ensure all deposit accounting is completed per the Landlord/Tenant Act. In the unlikely event the deposit accounting is disputed by the tenant, we handle all those communications, too.
For maximum protection, we collect a security deposit upon the signing of the lease. Applicants with approved pets are required to pay an additional, refundable deposit. All collected funds are maintained in a trust checking account per state real estate regulations, until they’re refunded to the tenant within 21 days of move-out.
Rent is due on the first day of the month, and considered late (and penalized) if received after the 5th. We send late notices on the 6th, and, if the tenant still does not make immediate arrangements for rent payment, we then begin the (thankfully rare) process of removal.
No more inconvenient phone calls from tenants. North Pacific Properties will handle all communication regarding your home—whether it’s a standard maintenance request or a burst hot water tank on New Year’s Eve. We will also happily work with the homeowner’s association or insurance company (in the case of storm damage, for example) to resolve any issues quickly and efficiently.
Bi-Annual Property Inspections
To ensure the integrity of your property, North Pacific Properties will perform a six-month walk-through inspection, in addition to the traditional move-in/move-out inspections other companies do. This is not just for your peace of mind, but also to anticipate and identify any issues that may need attention to head off future expenses.
