We are pleased to announce that as of January 1, 2018, we are no longer affiliated with the Real Property Management Franchise and have consolidated all residential management operations under the new brand, Specialized 247 Property Management. The Specialized brand has been trusted by rental investors for over 35 years.

Our capabilities as a company have significantly expanded, and we are now positioned for aggressive growth to meet ever-increasing demand to support client investments in additional markets outside of Texas. As the preferred property management provider for several national industry leaders providing services to rental investors, we are quickly scaling in new regions. This has led to our recent launch in San Antonio, our official launch in Atlanta on April 1st, as well as the addition of new markets on the horizon.

This advancement is fueled by the development of our proprietary technology—an end-to-end intelligence solution that is pioneering new levels of performance for single family rental management. This platform offers our clients a new level of service, financial analytics, and decision-making tools never before seen in single family investments, regardless of whether the client is an individual with a single property, or an institutional fund looking to easily scale across multiple markets.

Further, this technology enables us to quickly acquire existing operators and reliably integrate large portfolios in real time, where traditional models would require several months. This capability provides an ideal, seamless exit strategy for firms who have found themselves unable to navigate the increasingly competitive landscape due to outdated models and aggressive pricing structures by competitors. We are actively looking for partners in major markets who manage a portfolio of 300-700 units who want to sell their company and become an operating partner within a larger organization.

Our executive team is comprised of experienced industry leaders who have played key roles in expanding property management operations into new markets while serving large, multi-market U.S. portfolios.  Together, the team and technology behind the Specialized brand is again raising the bar in residential rental management, and we are committed to staying at the forefront of our industry.  We are very excited for what is to come, and want to thank our amazing team members for their continued dedication, hard work, and unwavering commitment to being the leader in the single family property management industry.
