How Are Our Property Management Services in Birmingham Different?
You have several choices when looking for a property manager here in Birmingham. But in The Magic City, we believe the following three things make us unique among all of the Birmingham property managers.
National Brand, Local People
As a national brand we bring resources and opportunities usually not afforded by smaller property management companies. At the same time, we have “boots on the ground” in each market to give you the local knowledge that is unique and important to managing in each market.
It’s the best of both worlds!
While other property management companies are calling around to find an available handyman to handle their emergency, our local maintenance team (GK employees) is ready at a moment’s notice and guarantees the quality of our work with a 12-month warranty and makes sure to treat your residents with respect as they work hard to resolve any issues.
No 3rd-party Application Underwriting
Most property management companies allow 3rd party processors to screen their residents. We think this job is too important to leave in the hands of others. Since moving to screening “in-house” we’ve improved collections, cut down on evictions, and increased the happiness of our clients.
Finding you a great resident is one of our most important jobs!
Check Out Our Four Guarantees
100% Happiness Guarantee
You can cancel the management agreement at anytime without penalty if you’re not satisfied with our service.
Tenant Eviction Guarantee
Should a tenant that we qualify and place in your home be fully evicted within the first 12 months of their lease term, we will replace the tenant and waive the leasing fee.
21 Day Lease Guarantee
We will rent your home in 21 days or less to a well qualified tenant, or your first two months of management are free

Frequently Asked Question
How quickly can you rent my home?
Renting your home is a function of the amount of traffic driven to see your home. Simply put, it’s a numbers game!
At gkhouses, we take renting your home serious and harness the power of both digital and guerrilla marketing tactics to get your house noticed, applications filled out and tenants placed.
We’ve found that it takes a certain number of showings and not a certain amount of time to lease your home. That is why our goal is to drive traffic to your home.
Our current marketing efforts for our rental homes drive approximately 15k to 20k unique visitors to our website each month. This marketing traffic is what produces showings, which produces applications, which produces a well-qualified tenant for your rental property.
What are your fees?
We provide owners with three different pricing plan options, Investor (8%), Gold ($89 flat fee), & Platinum (starting at $199). To learn more about our pricing plans, visit our pricing plans page.
How long have you been a professional property manager?
gkhouses started in 2008. We initially began in the business by managing our personal rental property. However, we saw the need in the market for a professional single-family property manager and decided to offer our services to others that had a high expectation of property management staff and a need for transparency and detailed accounting systems.
Our team of professional property managers has amassed a wealth of experience in the real estate industry as well as other industries to offer a battle-proven team of veterans for our clients.
How many properties do you manage?
We currently manage over 2,500 properties in Atlanta, Birmingham, Boulder, Chattanooga, Denver, Fort Collins, Little Rock, and Nashville.
Can I review your management agreement?
Feel free to give us a call or email us at email@example.com, and we’ll gladly email you a copy of our current management agreement.
Am I required to make my property available to Section 8?
No, you don’t have to accept Section 8 qualified tenants.
Are you licensed?
Yes, we are licensed by the State of Alabama to manage rental property. And we also ONLY allow licensed and insured maintenance staff and vendors to work on our rental houses.
How Can I Best Reach You?
You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org and (205) 940-6363 ext. 3 during regular business hours.
Can you put the money directly into my account?
Yes, we make ACH payments directly into owner accounts. We disperse to owners on the second Friday of the month and again on the last day of the month.
Do I get to see the lease or sign it?
If you would like to see the lease, we can provide you with a copy. The tenant signs a lease with gkhouses as your Agent.
Do you sell real estate too?
If you become a client as a result of an agent referral, we will refer you back to that agent. We also have staff that specifically focus on the selling of real estate should the need arise.
How is rent collection handled?
At gkhouses, we believe the best method for collecting rent is slow and steady pressure throughout the month as opposed to frantic and harsh pressure if rent becomes late. Not only do our tenants get friendly reminders that rent is due, but we also have weekly collections meetings where we discuss each tenant individually and decide the next step on a case by case basis. This has proven to be an efficient manner of handling rents and is validated in our 95%+ collection rate on tenants that we place.
How long of a lease do you sign?
A gkhouses lease is a 12 month lease.
What type of reports do I get and how often?
Each month you will receive an Owner’s Statement with a detailed description of any rent collected as well as maintenance performed on your home. Attached to that report will be a copy of all the invoices for maintenance performed on the property.
How much security deposit do you charge the tenant?
One month’s rent
How soon can you start managing my property?
We can begin managing your property as soon as you sign a management agreement and hand over the keys. Almost immediately we will schedule a walkthrough by one of our experienced property managers and make sure everything is ready for this property to be rented.
What type of properties do you manage?
We manage single-family houses, condos, town-homes, and small to medium sized apartment buildings (up to 50 units).
