Frequently Asked Questions About Rental Property Management
Review some of the most common questions our customers ask before deciding to work with Celski and Associates for rental property management. Still have questions? Contact us.
Our fee is based on property and scenario, with fees being negotiable. Commercial rates vary on a case-by-case basis and are evaluated by our Commercial department.
Our marketing strategy includes yard signs, internet advertising (extensive), newspaper advertising (if necessary), and a large amount of networking. Typically, in today's market, we will receive around 10-15 calls a day with renters looking for properties. If we are advertising a property that is pet-friendly, we receive about 25 calls a day. The call volume is mostly attributed to Celski and Associates being well known in the rental/property management market, having served locally for over 25 years.
The tenant is fully responsible for all utilities and we make sure that accounts are changed before handing over the keys. We do ask that the owner contact the utility companies prior to a renter moving in and supply them with an alternate contact/release of lien/landlord agreement. This makes for an easy transition for you and the renters. (Owner typically pays for garbage/sewer/water for duplex/apartment situation.)
We do full a walk-through every six months looking for any leaks, potential problems, excessive wear/damage and proper cleaning/maintenance of the home. We have a 24-hour fully licensed, bonded and certified property services company that remedies most of our repair and maintenance issues at discounted rates for both labor and supplies. We also provide contractors for specific jobs such as carpet care, cleaning and landscaping/irrigation at a considerable discount. Problems that typically arise are clogged drains, a/c not working, sprinkler breakage and leaks.
We work strictly on commission, so would like to get a quality tenant for the greatest rental rate the market will hold, providing us both with larger profits. If the home is vacant, we will not charge a fee.
Notification of lease expiration happens at least one month to 45 days in advance to both the current tenant and the owner. The tenant has until 15 days before expiration to resign or notify that they do not intend to renew, at which point we start marketing and showing the property. Ideally, we have a new lease prior to the existing tenant moving out. *Turnover usually takes 3-10 days for cleaning/repairs/carpet care.
We do not use a lockbox (for rentals) or require you to be present during a showing. We set appointments or multiple showings to allow prospective tenants to view the property, therefore, will require a copy of the key once we decide to start marketing.

Testimonials & Reviews from Our Clients
Celeski & Associates has taken great care our rental. We have huge peace of mind knowing Mike handles everything for us at our property!
As tenants, we have worked with a number of property managers over the years in various cities and none of them come close to the service and professionalism of the good folks at Celski.
Celski and Associates is an amazing and friendly company to work with. They are local and are staffed with some very talented individuals that are there to assist you in your renting, selling or buying needs when it comes to your home.
We were hesitant to go with any realtor but later realized we should have gone to her from the start. Carolyn was amazing from the beginning. She went beyond out of her way to help us get our place sold and fast.
When I needed someone to manage my son’s rental unit, Mike Corrado stepped right in and helped us out. He was quick to respond and patient with me and my many questions. We are working with him again on another unit (this time from long distance) and I am confident he will go the extra mile. Thank you, Mike, for reducing my stress level.
I rented from Celski and Associates in 2015-2016 at the Canyon Crest apartments and I was satisfied with the company. They were extremely easy to deal with, and all issues were resolved in a timely manner. Had to move away from town but will definitely be renting from them when I move back!
