Our Strategy For Optimizing The Value Of Your Property Has Five Major Components:

    1. Clear Communication

    Clear and honest communication among owners, tenants, and managers can avoid many of the hassles involved in renting property, including litigation. From our first meeting, we aim to develop an ongoing dialogue with you about your goals, expectations, and concerns in regard to your property. We also let you know what we expect from you in terms of the upkeep of your property and the terms of our Rental Management Agreement.

    We make sure that your tenant understands your wishes, and we strive to negotiate lease agreements that are in the best interest of both parties. Our commitment to openness throughout the rental process has paid off: in over 25 years of doing business, we have experienced an unusually small number of disputes in comparison to other property management companies.

    Once your property is rented, our online Owners Portal gives you access to monthly statements detailing your account activity. Should a problem arise with your property or your tenant, we will inform you immediately and communicate with you about the appropriate action.

    2. Competitive Rents

    With Marie Hansen Properties, you can be sure that the rent for your property is at fair market value. We examine the rental markets on a daily basis and set rents at the most competitive rates as units become available.

    Top business publications such as Forbes and Pacific Business News have recognized Marie Hansen Properties' expertise in market analysis and seek our commentary on the exciting - and volatile - Hawaii housing market.

    3. Strategic Marketing

    Marketing is key to successful rentals. We provide an expert market analysis for each property we manage to maximize your return on investment. In addition to advertising your rental property on Marie Hansen Properties website, Honolulu Board of Realtors Web site,and Craigslist, our integrated online marketing platform lists your unit on all the popular real estate sites and mobile apps, featuring detailed descriptions and photos. Our ads are optimized for search engines—anyone searching for available rentals in Honolulu is certain to find our listings.

    We also post vacancy notices on housing boards on the Department of Defense Web site, and, as appropriate, we advertise on communication boards in condo buildings. We also network with other real estate professionals and relocation services.

    In combination with this multifaceted marketing strategy, our thorough yet efficient processes for tenant selection and inspection allow us to keep your property occupied and in good condition. With an average vacancy rate of less than 3%, our properties provide their owners with a steady stream of rental income.

    4. Careful Tenant Selection

    Excellent properties deserve excellent tenants. We conduct extensive screening on all tenants and handle every aspect of getting your investment rented in the shortest time possible. Marie Hansen Properties screens local and national rental and credit histories of all prospective tenants, and we verify employment history and income. We follow up references with past and present landlords to confirm a history of timely rent payments and proper maintenance of the property.

    Our on-the-spot screening system expedites this process, allowing us to confirm quickly and accurately that a tenant is right for your property. We would rather see a property sit vacant a little longer than take the risk of accepting an unqualified tenant. No leases are signed until we are satisfied that the tenant is right for your property.

    You will receive copies of all leases, addenda, our move-in inspection report, and all other documents pertaining to your property.

    Our application process complies with all local, state, and federal regulations governing rental agreements as well as with the current best practices of the property management profession. We strictly abide by the Landlord Tenant Code and follow all Fair Housing (HUD) Guidelines.

    5. Thorough Inspections, Maintenance and Timely Reporting

    We conduct thoroughly documented move-in and move-out inspections to stay on top of the condition of your property and to make sure that vacating renters assume responsibility for any damage or undue wear and tear. We conduct walk through inspections to verifying a tenant is taking care of the property prior to renewing their lease. Inspections ensure all preventative maintenance issues are addressed in a timely manner.

    We make sure you get paid on time, every time. You no longer have to worry about rent showing up in your bank account because we take care of everything. With our detailed financial reporting tools, it's never been easier to keep tabs on your investment. Log into your owner portal to view statements & more. Your Owners Portal gives you online access to timely and accurate monthly reports on the activities of your account.

    Should repairs or renovations prove necessary, we will inform you immediately. With your authorization, we will proceed with the work in the most efficient and cost-effective manner. Repairs will be deducted out of your rental proceeds.
