We are members of the Rental Housing Alliance, MultiFamily Northwest, and National
Association of Residential Property Managers (NARPM). Tiffany Laviolette, President and
Principal Broker, previously served as the Treasurer of the Greater Portland Chapter of NARPM.
We are constantly aware of the changing market conditions. Rental prices can fluctuate
yearly, even monthly. We will give you a range of what your home will most likely will rent
for. We will assess your properties condition and advise you of any recommended repairs,
painting, yard maintenance, or general upkeep that may be necessary to attract a quality
tenant. This will also help maximize your curb appeal - and maintain your properties value -
and rental value.
Marketing / Showings
Our Leasing Agents are available Monday through Saturday to show available homes. Showings
are done by appointments and feedback is kept and entered into our database. We will
aggressively advertise your property on our web-site, which is also linked into several
national and local sites, such as MyNewPlace.com, HotPads, Inc., Tenant.com, Google Base,
Vast.com, HomeTownRent.com, OLX.com, RentalAds.com, RealRentals.com and Oregon
We also utilize a self-showing service (for no additional cost) with the owner’s permission.
Prospects are able to view properties on Sundays, Legal Holidays and after business hours
which will help decrease your vacancy period.
For more information regarding the self-showing services, please contact us today.
Our Rental Agreements are designed to protect your investment income and you. Keeping on
top of the latest local, state and federal property and tenant law guarantees that our leases
and practices stay compliant with the Fair Housing statutes, protecting you from the threat
and expense of litigation. Oregon Landlord Tenant Laws have become complicated to say the
least in the last few years - especially with the passage of Rent Control and End of Tenancy
Rules. We always stay abreast of the current rules and make sure our owners are in compliance
as well. If you are not staying current with the law changes, the financial penalties can
amount to close to $10,000.
We collect and process all rent monies from tenants. We will enforce on-time rent payment
and handle any non-sufficient funds we may receive. We will review each lease renewal to
assure you are receiving the best income from your investment.
We require all tenants to pay ample security deposits to ensure their pledge of complying
with the terms of the Rental Agreement. All security deposits are kept in an escrow account.
Pets are not a protected class (unless a companion or service animal). All tenants who have
allowed pets will be assessed a higher deposit and required to show proof of renter's
insurance. Pets will only be approved with an acceptable pet reference from previous
landlords. We will not allow any pets that are considered dangerous per the CDC, such as
Dobermans, Pit Bulls and Rottweilers.
A walk-through is conducted approximately three months after a new tenant has moved in.
This is to ensure that the tenant has not brought in any unauthorized pets or occupants and to
check that they are maintaining the property in a satisfactory manner. Annual or bi-annual
walk-throughs are conducted thereafter in accordance with your contract with Alpine.
Alpine has experienced maintenance staff on hand to handle all needs as they arise. With
our own maintenance staff, we provide a more consistent, less expensive, higher quality
service. Because our crew has time to get to know your properties, they can save you money by
spotting and correcting recurring problems a one-time contractor might not notice. Tenants can
also use our online maintenance request form along with our 24/7 telephone service. Owners
must approve all major repairs over the amount stipulated in your individual management
Comprehensive Accounting Service
Totally computerized accounting and record keeping provides accuracy and efficiency. You
will have access to your data 24/7 via our online secure logon. Anytime new information or
documents are uploaded, you will be notified via email. You will receive a monthly and yearly
income and expense statement. You will be provided a complete tax record at the end of the
year. We comply with all IRS requirements and issue you a Form 1099-MISC in January for all
gross rents collected each calendar year. We can pay all bills (utilities, HOA dues,
insurance, etc.) for your property.
Our goal is to achieve the highest maximum income and provide the highest quality service
for our clients. We strive to stay in communication with our owners and tenants. Tenant
retention is key in successfully managing rental properties.
Monthly Management fees vary from 6-8% depending on property location and condition.
