Landlord and Investor Education: Austin Landmark’s Property Management Blog

One of the ways that we share our experience is through our property management blog. We provide you with videos and articles that answer questions, share tips and advice, and help you judge the current state of the real estate market in Texas.

We provide this property management blog to help you navigate the challenges of owning a rental property. Whether you have one single home that you’re trying to manage on your own or you have an entire portfolio of investment homes that are professionally managed, you will receive useful information from our blogs.

You probably have a ton of reading material that you keep meaning to get to. You’re busy. You’re probably a little stressed. That’s why we keep our property management blogs brief. We won’t waste your time. Everything we talk about is relevant, and if you don’t have time to read what we’ve written, turn on the video, and listen to us while you’re catching up on paperwork.
We make it easy.

Answering Your Property Management Questions

You’ll find a lot of information on our property management blogs and in our videos. Maybe you’ve been wondering about something for a while. You’ll be relieved to find that it’s a common question among property owners.

If you have other questions that haven’t been covered in our property management blogs, be sure to let us know what’s on your mind. We create these blogs and videos with you in mind – we want to answer your questions and provide help where you need it. So, if you’re not sure about something and you don’t see it covered – reach out. We love hearing feedback and we love coming up with new ways to talk about our work as property managers.

From the Austin Landmark property management blog, you can expect information, education, and a little inspiration. We’re here to walk through the business of managing rental real estate with you. We’re here to help you through every part of the process – from managing taxes to budgeting for maintenance to turning over units.

We have been through it all. Our years of experience means we’ve made a few mistakes. You can benefit from those mistakes, and avoid making them yourself. You can also learn how to be a smarter investor, a better landlord, and a knowledgeable property owner.

Whether you’re a new investor, an accidental landlord, or an experienced member of the rental real estate community, we welcome you to our property management blog, and look forward to sharing ideas.

We have 3 properties being managed by Marc Witmer with ALPS. During the freezing last month in Texas one of our properties had significant damage. Marc checked the properties and reported his findings to me promptly. He then proceeded to get the issues addressed, notified the right people, dealt with the insurance and kept me completely informed. I couldn’t have asked for better representation. Thank you, Marc

I've used ALPS for many years and they've always been responsive. They helped address some nasty weather-related issues recently quickly and in a professional manner.

Super easy to work with! I didn’t stay at the property long (for other reasons) but I would welcome the opportunity to work with this management company any time in the future!

In preparation for closing on my first Central TX investment property, I evaluated several NARPM-certified property management firms. There are many. ALPS, though, has the highest designation available from NARPM (CRMC), and the principal at the firm, Mike E., struck me as both very professional and down-to-earth. He said that if I selected ALPS, I would not be disappointed. He was right. I closed on the home right before Thanksgiving, and he and his team had the property rented in less than 3 weeks (i.e. before Christmas)! Not easy to do in the off season. So far, everything is going smoothly with the new tenants. Fellow owners, i recommend you give ALPS a try, especially if you don't know where to turn or have had enough of poor management experiences elsewhere. Thank you, ALPS, for all you have done thus far, and I look forward to furthering the relationship with another investment property, the Lord willing, in the future!

We had a great move-in experience. This property management company helped us with the utilities transfer and when we needed repairs done were very responsive. We have been very pleased with the new house and with the professional and helpful property management.

When we saw this house we knew we had to rent it! We were in a situation that required us to move quickly. ALP understood and jumped in to help get the paperwork initiated and all the house details taken care of. Even when we discovered that the City had disconnected the gas meter and ALP had to go through the process of getting a new permit, we were still able to move in on time. Marc was very professional and he responded to my calls and texts almost instantly. I would recommend them as property managers for busy people.

Whenever we've had a problem (no ac in August, leaky fridge, noisy ceiling fan) they've been very responsive. Their subcontractors, G&S Services and Manning Enterprises LLC have provided exceptional customer service.
