The real estate agent does the work not the firm. The work skills would lnclude attention to details, results driven and persistency.
Renting out your property throws it into a different category. If homesteaded, it can no longer be homesteaded. You will have different tax implications, check with your CPA. All tenants are different, to protect yourself, have an attorney draw up a lease. Damage, no pays, access into the property are part of many other concerns that might arise. Evictions are expensive and lengthy.
One year with an option to renew under same terms. You will be able to check out the condition of the house at the conclusion of the first year, if you have not done so throughout the year.

You'll most likely end up renting to empty nesters or tenants forced out of their homes due to the market meltdown. You do not need a large firm to rent your property. In fact, a yard sign and a post on Craigslist for many people works just fine.
If you would like to have a company manage and market it for you, I can recommend All County Pros http://www.allcountypros.com.

Discuss with the property management company what their fees are.
Do they do background checks on tenants.
Do they take care of collecting checks.
Do they handle maintenance.
Do they show the home to the tenants.
Do they do walk throughs periodically.
How do they advertise the property.
Do they prepare the lease.

You should have no problem finding a renter for Turtle Rock. And I wouldn't feel that you would need to use a corporate relo management company. My office has a great management company and some of the other companies have them also. Please give me a call and we can talk. You are under no-obligation..but it is much easier going over these things in person or by phone.
I love the Palmer Ranch area and very familiar with Turtle Rock.
