We are different from most property managers because we charge a flat percentage with NO ADDITIONAL FEES! We collect our management fee as a percentage of the gross rent collected. If we don’t collect the rent then we are not getting paid. See our Services & Pricing page for more details. Each service also has more details explaining what we will do for you.
ABSOLUTELY NOT! We run a completely transparent operation that is able to answer any questions you may have. We run our business with utmost integrity and fiduciary responsibility. If you use our full property management service, everything is included in the management fee.
Generally we would contact you when there is any large change going on at the property. We would notify you about tenants moving in or out and for any maintenance issues that exceed the maintenance limit. We want to keep you in the loop and seek your approval when necessary, but not trouble you with day-to-day operations.
You are getting a team of professionals ready and trained to manage your property as if it were their own. We will make sure to maximize your market rent while protecting you from many liability situations. Our service is outstanding and you will definitely notice it.

Here are some of our requirements to rent:
Applicants must provide all information for their application to be considered complete. If they do not fulfill our qualifying standards, applicants may be accepting with an increased deposit (normally approved by the owner).
We encourage applicants to provide proof of all sources of income. Sometimes this will include bank statements or tax return documents. A co-signer may be allowed to apply with someone in order to help them qualify.
We are required to process all applications equally and all applicants are held to the same qualifying standards.
Yes. If the maintenance is needed because of normal wear and tear to the unit, the owner is responsible for the repair or maintenance. This includes anything that keeps the unit habitable and up to a similar condition to the tenant’s move-in. However, if a tenant damages the property, they will be responsible for the repairs. You will NEVER have to pay any type of fee for our maintenance coordination.
No! Jensen Properties doesn’t ever charge an extra fee for our maintenance coordination. In fact, since we do so much business with our preferred vendors, you often get a discount for their services.
This depends. If you are getting your unit ready to rent for the first time, you can definitely do the work yourself. We will help you by coming by and checking the unit to make sure it is rent ready. If you need some help here and there, we can have our preferred vendors provide quotes. Once we begin management, we normally use only our preferred vendors, but you can talk to us about work for future vacancies as well. If you have a company that you love, please let us know. We can look into adding them to our preferred vendor list.
If you want your landscaping to stay nice, using a landscaper is a smart choice. Relying on the tenant is risky and you may get less interest if they know they will be responsible for the landscaping. This also depends on the terms set out in the lease. If the lease states that the owner is responsible for landscaping, then you will need to provide that. We have quite a few landscaper and gardener options, so let us know if you’d like a free quote from them.
No. Tenants are held responsible for any damages caused by them. You are only responsible for the normal wear and tear that happens in the unit.
Please review our page Making a Unit Ready to Rent to learn what it takes to get a property ready to rent. Units need to be 100% habitable, clear of personal belongings, and cleaned to a professional level.
This is the normal process for maintenance requests:
Tenants are able to call our emergency number 24/7. If it's during business hours, the emergency becomes first priority and we get it taken care of. If it occurs after hours, we have vendors set up to make sure that your tenants' emergency is handled properly. Our vendors and staff are trained to determine which issues are emergencies and which are not.
