The Importance of Being Earnest

- We do not charge early termination fees for our management services. If you are not 100% happy with us, you can cancel within a month, no questions asked.
- Techno-savvy is our middle name. While most companies still use checklists for inspections, we implement 360-degree photo inspections that give you a crystal clear idea of the rental’s condition in high definition.
- An Earnest Homes tenant is a quality tenant. In fact, if the tenant we find for you breaches the lease within the first 12 months, we guarantee free tenant placement for the next tenant.
- Communication is our strong suit. We respond to all owner and tenant calls and emails within 24 hours.
- We have been professionally recognized as one of the best property management companies in Los Angeles and are members of the Apartment Association of Greater Los Angeles (AAGLA) and the National Association of Residential Property Managers (NARPM).
