Going and Growing into New Opportunities with Premier Property Management Group!

By Chris Clothier on Fri, Oct 23, 2020

REI Nation and Premier Property Management Group are excited to be launching a new initiative geared toward helping real estate investors tackle their property management headaches.

For years, our investors have asked us for our assistance in managing properties that were not purchased from REI Nation. Knowing that we strive to always deliver our best-in-class customer service to both our clients and our residents, we decided to wait until we could ensure we were positioned to do just that.

Today, after careful planning and testing, we feel confident in our teams and our ability to meet the needs and expectations of our residents and our clients, even when the property under management wasn't originally a part of our portfolio.

If you have properties in any of the eight cities we are currently operating in, Premier Property Management and PPMG of Texas are ready to help!  The properties can be vacant or occupied.
