Our philosophy is that all parties in a rental agreement should Be Happy Renting. We are continually looking for ways to improve the renting experience for our residents and owners alike.

- Matt Manaker, CHR Partner

In Charleston’s competitive rental market, both renters and property owners can demand more of the property management companies that serve them. Residents want to get a fair price for a nice rental with prompt response to maintenance issues. Owners want to get their homes rented quickly, get paid on time and avoid vacancies.

Is it possible for a property management company to check all these boxes? The Charleston Home Rentals property management team believes that the answer can and should be YES. Our team has been on a mission to deliver on this since 2006.

WHAT FULL SERVICE PROPERTY MANAGEMENT MEANS TO US

Charleston Home Rentals is here to help you succeed as a landlord or rental property investor. This is why we offer full service property management in Charleston and in the rest of the South Carolina Tri-County area. You may hear that most property management companies in Charleston advertise their services as “full service”. So how is Charleston Home Rentals different?

It lies in our philosophy that all parties in a rental agreement should Be Happy Renting. This means that we care about our residents as much as we care about our owners. When tenants are happy, they take care of the property and stay longer — leading to better returns and less costs for our owner clients.

Our team is fully equipped to take care of everything from marketing your home to screening your tenants and executing your lease.

We save owners like you from day to day landlord challenges like dealing with late rent, tenant calls, repairs, etc.

You’ll get your time back and enjoy the return on investment without any of the headaches or the liability. Choosing to go with professional property management in Charleston rather than self managing is the first step to getting more out of your rental home. Here’s what the process will look like for you when you decide to work with the CHR Property Management Team.

Step 1: Free Rental Analysis

CHR Partner Matt Manaker is personally responsible for communicating with owners interested in our approach to property management. It all starts with an evaluation of a property’s rental value.

Through a comparison of various rental properties in the area, we can provide an accurate rental range.

Interested property owners can get started by requesting a no-obligation analysis of their home’s rental value.

Click the button below to get started.

STEP 2: WE’LL FIND A QUALIFIED TENANT IN 30 DAYS, GUARANTEED

Once the best rental value has been determined, CHR Partner Ben Azar’s goal is to help owners generate rental income as soon as possible. Ben oversees leasing and leverages technology to make it easy for renters to schedule a showing of a property and apply online.

CHR guarantees an approved applicant in 30 days of the property being rent ready*, or we waive a month’s management fee for every 15-day period beyond that without an approved application.

*More details on “rent ready” available upon request.

STEP 3: WE’LL HANDLE TENANT MOVE IN AND QUICKLY RESPOND TO REQUESTS FOR REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE

Once your property is leased, the CHR team is equipped to communicate with both the owner and resident in a variety of convenient ways and respond in a timely fashion. Our sophisticated phone system enables callers to quickly connect with the right person, avoiding being routed through a frustrating automated process.

In addition to phone and email support, residents and property owners can make requests through our online portals, easily accessible from our website. The resident portal offers the ability to pay rent online, schedule an auto-draft, submit a work order and view important documents, such as a lease.

The owner portal provides data on every financial transaction including rent charges and receipts, owner payments and any maintenance expenses.

Property owners also receive weekly reports of leasing activities.

We even developed a handbook for residents and owners to address common questions, proactively addressing various topics before they become an issue.

Should an issue happen, CHR Partner Josh Azar is responsible for repairs and maintenance. Our team knows that a quick response is critical to keep the residents happy and to protect the owner’s property. In addition to online maintenance requests, we offer a 24/7 call center. Assistance is easy to request and always available.

STEP 4: OUR QUALIFIED TEAM DELIVERS HAPPY TENANTS AND LOW TURNOVER

CHR has been in business for 12 years and the partners have close to 35 years of experience in the property management industry. Even so, we are continually looking for ways to improve the renting experience for our owners and residents alike. For example, an industry standard is to have one staff member manage 60 homes. We have capped this at 40 homes to deliver the high level of customer service that our owners and their residents deserve.

As you are considering local property management companies, be aware that you ultimately get what you pay for. Experience has shown that our team’s overall approach results in happy residents, long-term occupancy and limited vacancies.

Our philosophy is that all parties in a rental agreement should Be Happy Renting. We are confident in our ability to find a qualified resident for your property. Simply contact us today for a free, no-obligation rental analysis.

The apartment had some issues when we moved in. It took four phone calls to get them resolved: One to make them aware of the issues, one to clarify the details, one to schedule a time to come out, and one to let us know they were on the way. Overall, the best experience in renting I've ever had.

I’ve been working with Charleston Home Rentals for about a month to find a condo to rent. They’ve been courteous, prompt & very helpful. They have made the process very simple and straight to the point. I would definitely recommend going through them if you need to find a property. 😀

I could not be happier after having rented from them for four years! Because of the stability they provided, we are in a much better position and will be buying a house soon. They have been great on their rents and their service is as good as you could ask. I heard a lot of nightmares about renting, but only good times with Charleston Home Rentals. I strongly recommend listing your home with them or renting from them.

We recently had a heater go out on a home we are renting. We contacted Josh at Chatleston Home Rentals and the whole heater unit was replaced in just a few days. The job went smooth and was fast. Everyone was very professional and took care of our needs. They even provided space heaters. Thank You!!

I was very impressed with how quickly they responded to fix our shower; it was less than an hour after I reported it that Wes called to say he was on his way. My thanks go out to Josh and Wes; they both are very professional, friendly, and a pleasure to deal with.

We have been renting from CHR for 1.5 years now and have had nothing but a great experience to date. The maintenance team handles repairs in a very professional and timely manner and the home office is always willing to help with any questions or concerns. To date we have not had any major issues and are looking forward to continued excellent service through the duration of our lease.

Unfortunately my sink was leaking in the home I was renting. I sent a message to the maintenance department at Charleston Home Rentals and within 24 hours my sink was fixed. It puts your mind at ease to know that they have competent people willing to come so quickly to get the job done.

As a tenant - they are super responsive with questions and concerns, and near immediate fulfillment of all maintenance requests I have submitted. Pretty much everything is done through their website tenant portal, which is extremely easy to navigate. Definitely earned the 5 stars.

Nice people to rent from! I thought I liked the property before I moved in, but to my surprise they painted the place with a fresh beautiful coat of paint before I moved in and made my experience that much better!! Definitely will be with them for a while!
