Maintenance Overview | The Mike Dunfee Group

Maintenance is the least glamorous and perhaps most feared part of property management. Dreaded maintenance calls can happen at any time with a problem to solve and an expense to be paid. Nobody likes maintenance calls, but we see them as an opportunity for us as a property management company to help keep a tenant happy and save a landlord from extra expense and trouble. Maintenance can be tricky – Here at the Mike Dunfee Group, we have worked for years to continuously enhance how we approach maintenance; it is something we are always striving to improve upon.

We’re All in This Together

Hi, this is Mike Dunfee and as someone who owns a property management business, I can tell you that both tenants and landlords are very stressed out during this extraordinary time.

If you are not able to make your rent payment, that is something that will have to be worked out. This is probably your only monthly obligation where an actua... read more >>

Periodic Inspections: What You Need to Know

Hi, this is Mike Dunfee with the Mike Dunfee Group and today we’re going to talk about periodic inspections. They’re usually done annually or biannually. I used to not be a fan of periodic inspections but after all these years in the business, I’ve become a firm believer. Now, we’re not there to see how people or living - or snooping on them to see if they made their bed or did their dishes.
