I'll Be a Customer for Years to Come

"Being many states away it takes a lot of trust to put someone else in charge of your investment. Jon has done a fantastic job of that. His maintenance crew are fast and the pricing isn't bad. At times I may become confused about certain aspects of the owner side of renting my house; Jon is quick to educate me and makes me feel comfortable, as well as ensuring me I am not a thorn in his side. Communication is key, and Jon has that and a lot more. His business is thriving due to the fantastic way it is managed. I will be his customer many years to come."

I Wish I'd Chosen Simple Sooner

"I enlisted Jon's help a year ago. At that time I was at my wit's end with managing my rental property. This year has been completely different. Jon has taken control of the property and it's been great! He is professional, attentive and dependable. I haven't had an issue that he has not resolved for me. I wish I had met him A LOT sooner!"
