Specialized Property Management Expands into Florida

Local Property Managers Partnering with the Technology-Driven Firm to Boost Growth


Specialized Property Management has announced its expansion into Florida, partnering with one of the largest single-family property management firms in the Orlando market with over $178M in assets under management. The Dallas-based rental management company continues to expand into select markets via a unique strategy, partnering with reputable property management companies with portfolios of over 250 units that seek near-term growth to reach 1000+ properties under management.


The strategy provides established property managers with access to Specialized’s resources, technology and experience to drive substantial near-term growth, while allowing owners to retain ownership in the company. In recent years, the firm has invested substantially in its proprietary technology platform, RentalView360, which typically cuts operating costs of new partnering firms by over 25% within the first year, while driving topline revenue with proven marketing strategies.


“Our experience has shown that even seasoned property managers are struggling to keep up with the growing demands of rental owners in the digital age,” explained Charles Thompson, President of Specialized Property Management. “Investors now expect more efficient, technology-driven operations and data analytics to ensure they are getting the most predictable return on their investment. Our technology platform has been custom designed to meet that higher expectation, and our systems allow established firms to build on that foundation to scale and better serve their clientele.”


Specialized offers an innovative strategy for smaller property management companies to scale their operation and create a long-term sustainable company.  Thompson explains, “Today’s rental market requires a significant investment in teams, training, automation, systems, and partnerships that simply is beyond the reach of many property managers. Our strategy allows reputable local firms to access the needed support to thrive and grow quickly while maintaining a stake, where before they may have been stagnating, or even losing clients to more technology-driven firms.”


Specialized Property Management is one of the largest and fastest growing real estate management providers, with locations now serving single-family rental investors in Dallas, Fort Worth, San Antonio, Atlanta, and Orlando. The firm provides complete residential property management for homeowners, investors, and institutional funds, including comprehensive leasing, marketing, screening, maintenance, collections, compliance, asset acquisition and disposition and accounting services.  Its rigorous management protocol is supported by an experienced team and a proprietary technology platform that is pioneering new levels of data-driven performance for single-family rental management and investing.

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.
