What if we have a bad tenant?

Dealing with a bad tenant can be one of the most challenging aspects of property management, but with Hoffman Realty at your side, you have a dedicated partner ready to navigate these waters effectively. Our Lease Guarantee and Eviction Protection Guarantee are designed to reassure property owners that, even in challenging situations, your property is secure and supported by a team dedicated to maintaining its integrity and profitability.

Do you allow pets?

At Hoffman Realty, we understand the importance of making your rental property accessible to as wide a tenant base as possible, including those with pets. Our pet policy is designed with flexibility and property protection in mind. On top of a thorough pet screening process, we also offer an Animal Damage Guarantee. This means that we pay for any damage exceeding the security deposit, up to $1,0000, that was caused by an approved animal.

How do you ensure that my lease agreement is legally compliant?

To provide the utmost confidence and security in your lease agreement, we utilize attorney-prepared leases. This means that every lease agreement we provide has been meticulously drafted and reviewed by experienced real estate attorneys. This ensures that your lease is up-to-date with the latest legal requirements and is designed to safeguard your interests as a property owner.

In addition to providing attorney-prepared leases, Hoffman Realty assists in coordinating more specialized legal advice when necessary. Our team stays informed of all relevant laws and we can connect you with qualified legal experts for complex legal questions or situations that arise.

How do you stay informed about upcoming laws in property management?

At Hoffman Realty, we understand the importance of staying ahead of the curve regarding property management laws and regulations. Our team of experienced property managers keeps a pulse on legislative changes and advises our clients accordingly.

We participate in NARPM’s annual “Day on the Hill”, where we meet with legislators to make connections and share our knowledge, thoughts, concerns, and support for real estate legislation that impacts our industry.

How much do you charge for property management?

We offer 3 tiers of service: Leasing Only, Standard, and Peace of Mind. Our Tampa Bay property management fees vary depending on your property and your needs. Learn more.

Do you have hidden fees?

No! We are committed to being upfront and honest with all of our charges, allowing you to plan and budget with confidence.

What is a renewal fee?

A renewal fee in property management is applied when a tenant renews their lease for another term. This fee covers the administrative costs associated with the lease renewal process, including updating the lease agreement, negotiating terms, and ensuring compliance with any new or updated laws and regulations. Learn more.

How long have you been in business? What is the size of your company?

We have been in the property management business since 1988 (Hoffman Realty became an LLC in 2000). Our longevity is a testament to our commitment to excellence, reliability, and the strong relationships we’ve built with our clients over the years.

Annual Safety Inspections

We are the only company in Tampa Bay that performs annual safety inspections. It’s just one of the reasons we’re considered the best in Florida property management.

Regular property inspections for properties in Eastern Pinellas County and elsewhere in the Tampa area allow us to check that all is well and proactively address any issues.

Here’s how we inspect your property:

Move-in Inspection

We perform a video-taped move-in inspection at the start of a tenancy. Around 90 days after the start of the tenancy, we perform an occupied inspection to check for issues like:

✓ Unsanitary conditions

✓ Excessive wear and tear

✓ Unauthorized occupants

✓ Unauthorized pets

We take photos to document. If there are issues, we schedule subsequent follow-up inspections. Assuming all is OK, the next interior inspection is an Annual Property Review in 6 months, or 90 days prior to the end of the lease.

Annual Property Review

The Annual Property Review (APR) is a written report with photos performed by a licensed home inspection company. The APR goes beyond tenant lease compliance to inspect the major systems in the property (such as roof, plumbing, electric, heating and cooling, appliances, etc.). This is an important report for our landlords. Owning an investment property is like owning a car – if you don’t maintain it properly, it will let you down. The licensed home inspector also performs our comprehensive safety inspection at the same time. We want your tenants to be safe in your property, and it benefits you as the landlord because it lowers your potential liability to personal injury claims.

Move-Out Inspection

At move-out, we perform another video-taped move-out inspection. We bring this back to our office to compare it with the move-in so we can make informed decisions about tenant damages and cleaning responsibility.

MaryAnn Hoffman and the team have been an absolute pleasure to work with. My dad had been working with the Hoffman team for well over a decade. They make owning property seamless as they manage any tenant issues expeditiously. We recently sold one of the homes in Florida and MaryAnn sold the property in record time! Selling the home with the Hoffman Realty team was a pleasure if you can say that when you're dealing with the sale of a rental home. I will definitely look to the Hoffman team to handle all of our business in Florida going forward. I greatly appreciated the prompt response, professionalism and honesty of the entire team. Thank you MaryAnn!

Renting through Hoffman was a breeze. It was very simple to view, and rent this property once I got Nina Ortiz phone. Once I saw the beautiful property, she quickly guided me through the application process. I’ll be in my new home next month. Stacy Jordan is my property Manager for the last year. And just like clockwork, if I needed anything at all she was on it. It was a definite pleasure working with her!

We really enjoy working with Hoffman Realty. One of my girlfriends told me by word-of-mouth of this company, then I met with MaryAnn, the owner, and I was immediately sold by her kindness, expertise and passion for what she does. I already knew I was in great hands. They made everything super easy and the initiation process overall was very quick. Stacy is our property manager. She is always available to take any questions that I may have. And always has a sense of urgency. She is always kind, and I can tell every time I speak with her on the phone she’s smiling and loves what she does! It was so nice that my husband and I could go on our honeymoon, and Hoffman Realty took care of the rest. They found our tenant did a thorough background check And already had a move-in date by the time we got back from our trip. It was a seamless process. And we didn’t have to worry about finding our own tenant while freshly married. We love Hoffman Realty! Thank you for all that you do! Ken and Jen

Had a lovely experience with the management company. Very responsive and honest. We put a lot of effort into cleaning the place when we left and they were honorable enough to give a full refund of the deposit. Jeanette was friendly and quick to respond to any issues. The only complaint would have to be in regards to contractual obligations in regards to exterminators and carpet cleaning. But I suppose that was on the owner, asking for an exterminator to kill imaginary bugs upon moving out. No biggy tho.
