We experienced a fire in the kitchen of our home this summer that caused major damage from the fire itself, as well as immense water damage from the efforts to put out the fire. We immediately contacted our insurance company, who made arrangements for us to stay at a hotel. We were referred to Precision General Contractors and we contacted them and arranged for them to visit the property and meet with us. They inspected the problem and spent hours analyzing every angle of the damage and the cost. They itemized everything into a very organized estimate showing all of the cost. We eventually retained them as our general contractor and they met with our adjuster when he visited the property. They worked diligently with the adjuster and they were on the same page regarding the steps needed to be taken to make the repairs and the costs involved. Every single aspect of everything affected was covered. Precision went about making the repairs almost immediately. Their crews were managed by one project manager who kept in close contact with us throughout the whole process. The crews arrived early every morning 6 days out of the week. It was extremely important to us that the repairs were handled quickly as we were in a hotel with our children while the repairs were made. They never let the job sit stale. We felt like they used every hour available to make the needed repairs. Very efficient! The end result was more than fantastic. Every single item was put back together brand new, many of which were actually upgraded to better quality. At the end of the day, the only thing out of our pocket was the deductible. We were in the hotel a total of 11 days. Before we moved back in, Precision even paid to have a professional maid service clean our home. It was like nothing had ever happened. We can’t say enough nice things about Precision General Contractors and we would highly recommend them to anyone needing a great contractor!
I want to thank Get There First Realty and staff for the outstanding job you have done managing my properties the past year. Prior to using GTF, I was using another property management company that by comparison cost me tens of thousands of dollars. They listed the properties at lower rents, had log vacancies between tenants and rents were frequently delinquent. It was common that tenants left properties in terrible shape and months behind on rent. It was so common I considered selling the properties because the losses were so great. I reached the end of my patience when my old property manager for the second time “forgot” to list a vacant house. I contacted you regarding taking over managing the properties I was slow to agree to change to GTF and you called me at least once a week. During one conversation you said “think what it would be like if you owed me money.” I switched to GTF and everything changed. You raised the rents and filled three empty houses within 30 days. the late payments became a thing of the past with only an occasional exception. You also recommended insurance and property tax companies that help reduce my operating expenses. Your staff is prompt at returning calls and are always helpful. I am truly glad I found your company. I pay GTF a little more than my old management company, but it is without a doubt the best money I have ever spent. My properties generate positive cash flow for the first time since I have owned them. Add me to the list of satisfied GTF clients.
My husband and I are an older Australian Couple who have Rental Housing Property Investments in various USA States. We have used Mark Kreditor of Get There First Realty since purchasing a condominium property in Dallas, Texas over 10 years ago. Mark Kreditor and all his staff have always provided us with prompt, efficient, competent service and have surpassed the performance of all our other Property Managers of our other investment properties in the Maryland and New York, and other USA states. We only wish he could manage all our other properties in other USA states. Mark has always stated things as they are with genuine proper investment advice that has always been correct. Living in Australia so far from our USA investments, in a different time zone, we have to rely heavily on our various property managers to be available for prompt reply service which Mark Kreditor has always excelled in providing. In fact, he has always been available to contact either by email or phone to discuss our Dallas Condominium property at any time. Tenant selection and screening has been excellent with the last tenant in occupancy at a satisfactory rental rate for over 8 years. With his company’s up to date computer systems they have in place, our monthly rental receipt reporting/repair billings, etc, is very efficient. We would recommend Mark Kreditor- Get There First Realty to any Dallas, Texas rental property owner requiring the best property management company you will find.
