We take professional photos, writing engaging descriptions, and take the time to research market conditions and competing properties.

Tenant screening includes checking credit, income, and employment. We make sure there are no previous evictions and we conduct a thorough criminal background check. Finally, we talk to references and find out how the prospective tenants behaved for past landlords.   

Once we have a tenant approved, we take care of collecting the security deposit, signing the lease, and answering any questions. We know that establishing a cooperative and respectful relationship with your tenant is critical.

For nearly 30 years Russell Properties Inc. has managed all aspects of renting my investment property in Central Florida. As a long time absentee rental property owner, living in faraway states, I have relied totally on the superior property management skills of Property Manager, Joe Torres.  Joe has served as my eyes and ears for many years and has gone well beyond the ‘extra-mile’ to keep my property occupied and maintained at a high level. I greatly appreciate the professional style and added value that Joe and Russell Properties, Inc. bring to the investment property proposition.  The services provided by Russell Properties, Inc. are invaluable!

They keep you well informed from your move -in-day to Move-out-day. I had been with R.Russell Properties since 2016 (4 years). I have always had a nice experience with the office staff as well, whenever there was an issue they are super quick to respond and have your issue serviced promptly. Thank you to Dinah Zessin who made my move out day a lot less stressful, she provided me a move out list that needed to be checked off (which is basically to return the property in the same manner they gave it to you - which is only fair) but it was nice that she was able to speak with me on what the expectations were. She was very quick in returning my full deposit. I would definitely recommend R. Russel Properties !

Russell Properties for over 3 years. While renting my condo out, she was always great at communicating with me during annual renewals, maintenance, etc. - helping to provide me peace of mind as an out-of-state owner. She was my “local set of eyes”! When it came time for me to sell my unit, it was a no-brainer to have her sell it for me. She was great at providing comparable sales & market analysis to help me properly price the condo. Throughout the whole process, she was prompt, responsive, and quickly got me answers to my questions. She went over & above as my realtor, often times completing tasks for me that went beyond the scope of her responsibilities. Her persistence helped get conventional financing introduced to my condo community for the first time since before the Great Recession. If you are looking to buy or sell, look no further - Dinah is the person to call.
