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 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 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 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 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 blog, and look forward to sharing ideas.

We work with property management companies across the nations, and I have worked with ALPS for almost a decade. It’s a pleasure to work with Mike Ebert’s team because their business operates on super-efficient systems and processes. This makes it easy on their vendors - keeping our costs down - thereby reducing maintenance costs for ALPS’ homeowners. We highly recommend them to tenants and owners.

Our family has leased our home through ALPS since 2011. They are professional, supportive, and NICE! It is a family business. We started with father Rick, and now we work with his son Mike. This is a top-notch organization with a personal touch. What more could you want?

I am a landlord that has used ALPS for almost 8 years now and the main thing I look for in a company I do business with is honesty, integrity, and responsiveness. ALPS, and specifically my broker/agent Marc Witmer, embodies all these things. Highly recommended.

I got home Friday from work and it was 84° and climbing in the house, while the thermostat was set on 75. It’s a Texan’s worst summertime nightmare, the AC going out. I submitted my repair request online and quickly made arrangements to stay elsewhere for the weekend, not expecting to hear anything back until Monday morning. Much to my surprise, I received a call at 9:30 AM Saturday morning from an electrician asking if I was available, they could be there in 30 minutes. Upon arrival, the friendly electrician quickly identied the problem, left to purchase a part, returned and fixed the AC unit within 1 hour! Needless to say, I am very pleased with not only the outstanding service of the electrician, but Alps as well. In my contract, it clearly states that a broken AC is an urgent matter, but not an emergency- therefore, it would usually be handled M-F. Alps went above and beyond my expectations by the expedient turnaround of this maintenance request.

I have been a tenant of Austin Landmark Property Services at my previous home I was renting and had a great experience with Marc! He not only is an awesome property manager, but is extremely fair, quick and efficient with a positive attitude at fixing any problems and truly cares for his tenants. I wish I could take him with me to my next property and will greatly miss him!

Pam and Marc were fantastic! I was needing a house quickly and had to put my faith in this company to get me into a good house for my dog and me. I moved down from Minnesota to Leander Texas. I did all the applications online and was able to sign and pay online as well. It was sight unseen(all I had to go on were the great pictures that they posted on Zillow and the ones they sent via email). I love the house and if I move to a different place later, I will definitely go with them first. Thank you for a great experience. By the way, I am Retired Navy and I have a great job at Dell. This is not an internal review. I have seen those and I am definitely not fake.
