The Best Property Managers in DeKalb County GA Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire 


The state of Georgia requires that property management companies in DeKalb County GA have a state license as a real estate broker, because property managers are engaging in leasing, renting, collecting rent payments, and finding tenants in their management of apartments or other rental properties including commercial property managers such as for malls and office buildings.  However, Georgia does allow a loophole that non-licensed employees of that broker may perform as the property managers provided they are full-time employees and do property management services only for that one broker.

So the state license is no guarantee that any particular property management company in DeKalb County GA is even competent, is doing business ethically, is providing real value, or satisfying its clients.

This makes it significant that all property managers in DeKalb County GA who bear The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous clients to verify high satisfaction with their property management services, good complaint record, verified liability and workers' comp insurance for your protection, using only employees legal to work in the U.S., and more.
