Guarantees for Property Owners
We have you covered every step of the way.
We will source you your ideal tenants. If a tenant we placed needs to be evicted, we guarantee that we'll personally reimburse you up to $1,000 in legal expenses.
Long-term contracts are scary. But there's no need to worry when you work with us! We earn your business every month with no long-term contracts.
Pet Damage Guarantee
We screen pets in order to safeguard your property from destructive animals. If an approved pet damages your home, we will personally reimburse you up to $1,000.
Tenant Placement Guarantee
With us, you're never going to pay two leasing fees in a 12 month period. If a tenant placed by Iron Horse breaks their lease within the first twelve months, we will find a replacement renter for FREE.
Rent Deposit Guarantee
Management Fee Guarantee
We know you want your money fast! So rest assured, we will automatically send rent directly into your bank account by the 15th day of each month.
We believe that if we don't collect the rent, then we should not get paid. You only pay us a management fee if we successfully collect the rent due.
Leasing Fee Guarantee
Legal Compliance Guarantee
Our leasing fee covers everything from sourcing qualified applicants to handling the lease drafting and signing. We also guarantee you won't pay a leasing fee until we have a signed lease and rent paid from the tenant.
Our lease agreement was created by a top-rated Athens law firm. It is in compliance with fair housing and Georgia Tenant Landlord law.

How We'll Help With Your
Athens Property Management Needs
Professional rental services that deliver professional results
We're so well-versed in the rental market that we know exactly how to price and market the property. We ensure that our clients top-dollar for their units and quickly rent them out to their ideal tenants. Our properties are marketed on the same MLS system that Realtors use. Additionally, we market your property on dozens of other rental websites. We get numerous inquiries and applications from prospective clients. But we always select the most qualified tenant for your property.
We use a state-of the art, online platform for rent collection. Our automated portal helps to reduce errors and maximize efficiencies. Over 90% of our residents pay rent online through our portal. This way, your cash flow is protected and you maintain financial consistency. It's extremely rare that rent is not collected and paid to our owners on time.
An annual inspection is included in our core fee. We provide our clients with a detailed report which allows them to understand their property's condition. Additional inspections are also available upon request. But typically they're not needed as our qualified vendors and handymen promptly respond to maintenance requests. So generally, we have "eyes" on throughout the year and can preemptively identify any potential problems, unauthorized pets, etc.
We have a rigorous tenant screening process and scoring system. We're so confident in our tenant selection process that we offer our owners an Eviction Guarantee. This means that we'll pay up to $1000 toward eviction expenses, if needed. Fortunately, this is very rare. That's because we source qualified tenants who have a stable income, good credit, and references.
We work with qualified, insured vendors. They ensure that maintenance issues are accurately diagnosed and promptly addressed. We don't upcharge these invoices like many other property managers do. Our owners receive detailed and accurate invoices with their monthly statements. This demonstrates to our clients that we're reliable, consistent, and transparent.
Our thorough screening process and healthy rapport with tenants help us to avoid costly evictions. But if an eviction becomes necessary, we have the authority and capability to handle evictions on your behalf. We use a custom lease that was drafted by an attorney in Georgia. This allows us to evict tenants who don't abide by the terms of the agreement.

More About Iron Horse Property Management and Our Property Management Approach
We are members of the National Association of Residential Property Managers (NARPM) and the National Association of REALTORS (NAR). We specialize in managing single family homes, condos, and small multifamily properties in Athens and surrounding areas throughout north Georgia. We know exactly what it takes to make owning rental property profitable.
At Iron Horse, we strongly believe that it's important to establish a healthy rapport with both our clients and residents. We handle all of the day-to-day processes of managing rental property on behalf of owners. This gives them the freedom to make their investment as passive as possible. However, our team also understand that there are times, we must involve owners in higher level decisions. We want to ensure that the lines of communication remain open and transparent.
We're customer focused. We make certain that rental payments are on time, every time. Additionally, we strive to minimize vacancy time and maximize the rent based on current market conditions.
Our clients range from single property owners with very little rental property experience to investors who own multiple units and have been investing for many years. While we have almost two decades of experience in the residential rental market, we're not too proud to admit that we don't know it all. We strive to continue learning and growing by attending classes and obtaining guidance from property management consultants and experts. We're constantly seeking to grow and improve our systems and processes in order to serve our clients at a higher level.
