In my experience RPM is a well managed, professional company. Their customer service is superior. They do an excellent job interfacing with the tenant and property owner. I had an extraordinary, urgent situation with my property extending for months during which time RPM displayed an enormous amount of patience, professionalism and problem solving skills. Whenever I have requested their advice they gladly offer it from a firm base of knowledge and confidence.
I managed my rental for about six years on my own living in the Portland area. Now I’m 600 miles away and now, believe it or not, it is easier and less stressful. Thank you for putting my rental on auto–pilot.
RPM was quick to find a tenant for our space in this tough economy. The staff has always been quick to respond to any needs or concerns we may have. They are very professional and I would highly recommend RPM to anyone looking for, or in need of property management.
I have been RPM’s client since 2001 and always feel I am so lucky to have chosen them among a few other property management companies I interviewed. I remember my first impression when I met Bob Johnson who manages the company was that this company must be very professional. Through several years passed, my initial impression did get verified. I am very satisfied with their responsiveness, communication, flexibility and customer orientation.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is My Property Rent Ready?
A property in top-notch condition helps attract great tenants and commands higher rent. In preparation for your new tenant, we recommend
- Professional cleaning and carpet cleaning.
- Painting walls a neutral color.
- Misc. Items to include but not limited to replacing burnt out light bulbs, installing missing smoke alarms/carbon alarms.
- Check all appliances to make sure they are in proper working order.

What About Management Pricing?
Your home is a valuable asset. Seemingly low-priced services can often lead to poor results because there is not enough staffing at the management company to provide the level of service desired. That is not a problem at Residential Property Management, Inc.
We pride ourselves in maintaining the highest level of service to our clients. We have competitive rates that help you benefit from the best management services in Portland. Please inquire for a custom quote.
How Do You Balance Technology & Human Interaction?
Balancing technology and human management is essential in providing the best possible service to property owners and tenants. Technology can streamline many aspects of day-to-day property management, such as rent collection, maintenance requests, and communication. However, it’s important to remember that technology should not replace human management entirely.
Property management still requires human interaction to build and maintain strong relationships with owners and tenants and to ensure the property’s maintenance needs are met. However, a property manager’s personal touch can help solve problems and provide a level of service that technology alone cannot match. By balancing technology and human management, Residential Property Management, Inc. can provide a comprehensive approach to property management, ensuring that owners and tenants receive the best possible service.
How Do You Choose the Right Rental Price?
Determining the best way to price a rental property involves several factors, including the local rental market, property features, location, and amenities. Here are a few things we consider when pricing a rental property:
- We research the local rental market in your area to determine the average rental rates for similar properties. We evaluate your property against current properties we have in our vast portfolio of homes with similar features, size, and location.
- We consider the property’s unique features, such as location, amenities, and property size. Properties located in prime locations or with additional amenities may command a higher rental rate.
- We monitor the rental market and evaluate any changes in market conditions. We will provide necessary recommendations if any changes in rental rates or property demand require adjustments to your pricing strategy.
Overall, pricing a rental property requires careful consideration of market data, and unique property features. By doing our research and making informed decisions, we can price your rental property competitively while maximizing your profits.
We do not believe in overpricing your property just to make you happy or obtain a signed management agreement. We emphasize transparency to help you avoid long vacancies and reductions in the asking rent before the property gets let.
Do Property Managers Need To Be Licensed in Oregon?
The Oregon Real Estate Agency issues a Broker’s License or a Property Manager’s License for those who wish to manage rental property on behalf of another for a fee. In addition to tenant relations, maintaining properties and complying with landlord-tenant laws, a Real Estate licensee also understands the accounting principles needed to maintain clients’ trust account.
