Critical Questions a New Owner Should Ask

Often a homeowner new to property management doesn’t know what questions to ask a potential management company. In addition to comparing services, price, and reviews – an owner should consider these questions below to better understand if a company is a good fit.


    Yes, one of our team members will conduct all showings for your property.

    Some companies offer no after-hours support, leaving it up to chance. Some expect the tenant to make calls to a specialist, if needed. Others put one staff member in charge of handling any calls that may come in on weekends or after hours. Some use untrained 3rd party vendors, who can do little more than take a message.

    What we do: We utilize a service that is specifically trained and focused on handling maintenance calls. This service will distinguish between a routine call, which can wait until during business hours, or an emergency which needs to be handled immediately in order to protect your property or the tenant.


    We advertise and market your property using MULTIPLE methods. We market your property through our property management software system, which will export your listing to additional real estate websites, to include Zillow, Trulia, and Hotpads (the three most common used in search). Additionally, we have worked very hard to move our company up higher in the search results on Google. In fact, that is likely where you found us. So, when tenants are looking at websites for available rental homes, they typically will find our listings first. This puts our listings at the advantage of being seen first and rented first.

    In addition to our digital marketing strategy, we also utilize high quality photos (taken by a professional photographer) and video tours to properly showcase your home. Our video marketing strategy ties into our Search Engine Optimization (SEO) strategy as well.

    We will also pay commissions to Realtors who bring us tenants. Some of our tenants use a Realtor to help them find their rental home. So we offer commissions to these agents, to entice them to work with us and help us to find quality tenants.


    We are members of the National Association of Residential Property Managers (NARPM) at the national and local level. NARPM provides industry specific education on all aspects of property management through weekly meetings, continuing education classes, and seminars. Lance Kohler holds the Residential Management Professional (RMP) designation, which is based on experience and training in property management.


    The size of the company you choose to work with will impact the service you receive. Small companies, managing 100 doors or less, often have few systems in place to efficiently manage properties. In many cases, they are managing homes as a side business or secondary to their sales.

    Large companies that are managing 1,000+ homes across the country may have available systems to manage the homes, but they rarely have enough employees on the ground to properly oversee operations. Don’t be fooled by low rates and grand promises. These companies are only looking at the bottom line, and are hardly local experts.

    Cornerstone is locally owned and operated and has been managing properties in Colorado Springs for over a decade. We are a medium-sized company, which provides you several advantages: we have established processes and systems that allow us to effectively manage your property or properties; we have the experience gained from managing properties of all types; we are still small enough to provide you with excellent customer service and attention.

    We have slowly grown over the past 7 years to nearly 500 doors, steadily increasing the number of properties we manage each year while we improve and increase our services. Insuring that we maintain a high standard of service while taking on new clients.
