There may be a website somewhere but that would be like anything else you can find on the Internet. Somebody usually has an agenda for publishing data, sometimes it's even factually correct.

Your best bet for referrals is getting someone you know who uses a property manager to tell you about their experience with property management.

Another approach is to look around at specialty firms and see which ones have been in business for a number of years. You can't stay in a business for a long time without some degree of quality.

The easiest way is to walk the property and ask some of the tenants!

Check the history of the property/company, the BBB, and other sources. Most of them are usually reliable, they use different methods to qualify the tenants for everyone's protection. The law tends to favor the tenant these days.

However, any large rental property and most property managers are members of the Apartment Association, and therefor usually have to maintain good standing (no too many complaints, etc.).

Property management groups are not always what they appear to be. The fees vary greatly from one to another. Normally the length of time a company has been in business and the number of properties managed will give you a good indication of their authenticity and quality, especially if they have managed the same properties for many years on behalf of an owner. If you are considering a property management company call me for advice and some useful tips. 469 688-3453

Not sure there is a place.
Interview 3 or 4.
See what each provides.
Have a list of questions for them to answer.
There is a huge difference in property managers in my opinion.
