Managing rental property can be time consuming and come with an abundance of problems. We have found that most owners begin searching for a property manager when they consider the amount of attention and time that renting a house actually consumes. Here are three of the most common obstacles owners face then they manage their own property:
You need your property to be seen by as many potential tenants as possible. Marketing your home in one or two places (or by word of mouth) is going to greatly diminish your potential to find the best tenant. We push our available properties to over 40 websites and we receive over 20,000 visitors each month to our site. This makes sure we find you a great tenant fast so you receive rent right away.
Finding the best tenant for your property is something you can't afford to get wrong! A mistake here could end up costing you thousands of dollars. It's also extremely important that you follow fair housing laws when you are reviewing applications. At gkhouses, we have a five-step screening process which helps ensure we find the best tenants. These tenants will pay you on time, every month!
Maintenance is inevitable. Most every house needs work done to it within a 12 month period. Scheduling a vendor and following up on that vendor and tenant takes more time that most people realize. Our in-house maintenance department makes sure your tenant is happy and that quality work is completed on your home...saving you valuable time and keeping your tenant happy and paying rent!
We don’t hire just anyone to manage your property. Every team member is carefully vetted and is put through a hiring process we affectionately call ‘The Grinder.’ Sounds scary only because it is!
Alex loves the office phone. Mostly because he's able to answer questions from owners like you each day. He says he has the best job at gkhouses and nothing makes him happier than talking to new owners. Well...maybe the only thing he enjoys more is South Carolina sports. We don't know why! When Alex isn't helping owners find the best solution for their rental houses, you can find him talking about dinner plans or actually having dinner.
Reach out to Alex directly to schedule an appointment, or fill out one of our forms to receive a free rental assessment of your home.
From deep marketing and leasing knowledge to exceptional systems and processes to superior maintenance, we only have one focus - your happiness. Let us show you the gk difference!
Our systems and processes make certain you don’t deal with the day to day of tenant questions or requests. We ensure you know the most important details but stay out of the day to day management.
We love to ‘celebrate our tenants!’ That means that your tenant will be happier and have a great gkhouses experience. Their happiness can translate into renewed leases and more money in your pocket.
This is a little “tongue in cheek” way of saying, our business is the quality of our people. Property management experience for our people is not a must when they come to work with us. Fitting with our culture and our vision for the business is most important.
Trust is the cornerstone of any business relationship. We believe we can build trust by being uncomfortably transparent. We’ve found that owners don’t expect us to be perfect. What they do expect is for us to communicate and be very transparent with them.
A rental house is not an asset. The real asset is the combination of the right house with the right tenant. That’s why when we find a good tenant, it is important that we keep them. How do we do that? We celebrate them. Feel free to ask the different ways we celebrate tenants.
Tenant’s can find your home on our site no matter what device they’re using. Our website makes sure that your home is in front of the maximum amount of people. As a matter of fact, a prospective tenant can schedule a showing based on what’s convenient for them, all from their phone or computer.
We also get your home on approximately 40 other websites including MLS, Zillow, Trulia and more!
There are no upfront fees to get set up and your property in front of thousands of potential tenants. We’ll even provide lawn care for you while your house is on the market!
Let’s face it, property management isn’t a glamorous job. In fact, it can be kind of hard.
And you don’t want just anyone choosing a Little Rock tenant to live in your home. After all, putting a bad tenant in your home can end up costing you thousands!
We believe to be an effective property manager, you need to be proficient in these key areas:
Our years of experience and progressive marketing knowledge allows us to get in front of the most prospective tenants as possible. Combined with our 5-step screening process, we will find you the best tenant possible.
Finding great tenants is hard and we believe when you find them, you should try to keep them several years. We strive to keep all of our tenants happy and regularly write them notes of appreciation and give them gift card surprises!
Over the course of a year, things break. We do our best to provide opportunity for preventative maintenance that can keep larger repairs from getting out of control.
We couldn’t manage over 1,500 houses without great people and solid systems and processes. This helps make sure nothing falls through the cracks.

From the time your home is fully marketed, our goal is two weeks. If it takes longer than two weeks, we'll waive your first management fee.
Each tenant signs a 12 month lease which renews each year with a small rent increase. You will be notified 120 days out from the lease anniversary and given the option to renew or end the lease. You will also be asked if you would like to keep the rent increase or renew the lease with no rent increase.
Getting started is easy!
Either give us a call, or fill out a form on this page. Once we discuss your situation we'll send a management agreement for you to sign. We'll also set an appointment to walk your house and give you a Property Inspection Report.
If you already have a tenant, we'll get all of the important information from you (or your previous manager) and introduce ourselves to them and make sure they understand we're your property manager.
Don't hesitate to reach out to discuss your situation. We would love to help you have a great Little Rock rental experience.
This is every homeowners nightmare and biggest fear! We have a five step screening process which makes sure that every tenant we place for you has good income, solid credit, valid employment, no criminal background, and we even talk to previous landlords for a reference asking questions like, "Would you rent to this tenant again?"
Also, our Tenant Performance Guarantee helps give you the peace of mind that you won't be responsible for another leasing fee should the tenant not honor their lease at least the first six months.
Maintenance works this way:
Also, our Maintenance Guarantee will put your mind at ease knowing we will come back and fix anything that might go wrong as a result of our, or our vendors, workmanship.
We have three guarantees for you:
