Property Management Services in Champaign Urbana
Ramshaw Real Estate has a 30 year history of expertly managing properties for owners in Central Illinois. These services include tenant management, placement, maintenance, compliance, marketing, rent collection and accounting. Our on-call property managers enable us to quickly and efficiently resolve issues. Utilizing streamlined processes, advanced technology and web-based portals, we make it easy for our customers.
Our goal is to generate the greatest possible net income for the owners of an investment property over that property's useful life. It is a common misconception that a property manager only collects rent, shows available space, and executes leases. The property manager's job is far more demanding and takes a high level of knowledge and experience. We are confident our team is proficient and capable to handle your property with great care and success.
Experienced. Friendly. Energetic. Ramshaw’s multi-family leasing representatives have these attributes coupled with refined professionalism. Our staff receives extensive, on-going property management training and prides themselves on being extremely responsive to the needs of clients, owners, and tenants. With much lower turnover than the competition, Ramshaw leasing representatives know the selling points and details of each property and are prepared to showcase your building's features to prospective tenants. All of our leasing agents are licensed with the state of Illinois and participate in the most current continuing education.
Our on-staff maintenance team is trained and able to handle most maintenance requests, minimizing the need for outside contractors. This reduces costs for owners, while optimizing scheduling, prioritization, and customer service within our company. Many licensed providers are on staff to assist with various tasks such as refrigerant recapturing, plumbing, HVAC repairs, and other specialties.
Ramshaw’s marketing team develops and implements a wide range of marketing and advertising activities for the firm and its clients. Revamped in 2018, RRE’s user-friendly website, Ramshaw.com, is a main hub for interaction between tenants, owners, prospects, and leasing agents. As a frontline for information, we pride ourselves on consistently updating the website and having accurate, intriguing listings for our available properties. Our website now links to our back-end software, Appfolio, which is discussed in more detail below. The collaboration on the front and back end provides ease in transmitting information between parties.
To better assist our full-service accounting department, Ramshaw adopted Appfolio in 2015. Appfolio is a premier system for integrated accounting and multi-family, retail, office, and industrial property management. It creates a centralized database and allows our owners to generate comprehensive, real-time reports at their convenience. This decreases overhead expense and helps keep management rates low.
Managing property in a digital age is all about efficiency, accuracy, security, and cost-savings. With our property management software we are able to securely collect and disperse information to tenants and owners. Recognizing a need for increased security and accountability with some of our physical assets, Ramshaw purchased and enabled Keyper Systems to track and manage our property keys, company vehicle keys, and in-office laptops.
