As Your Longwood Property Manager, We Take Care of Everything.
A rental property doesn't lease itself. Every day that your home sits vacant costs you money. It doesn't take but a month or two before you're in a cash-negative position.
Longwood Realty and Property Management will find you qualified tenants. We will actively market your property in ways you might not be familiar. And some ways other property management companies don't even do. It's not enough to simply place an online ad or a sign in the yard and wait for a qualified tenant to call. That's way too passive if you want to maximize occupancy and revenue.
Instead, we use traditional marketing tools like MLS and signs combined with aggressive e-marketing. We will place detailed information about your property on dozens and dozens of popular rental property websites. We also utilize numerous phone apps to advertise your property as well as Social Media to promote properties. This will generate phone calls, showings and thus qualified tenants. That's a massive amount of exposure guaranteed to generate a constant flow of potential renters. We utilize a website (the only like it in Central Florida) geared to those who speak Spanish as a first language. We provide our clients an edge.
And, unlike most Longwood property management companies, we answer our phones and show properties seven days a week. That's what it takes to find tenants, so that's what we do. We WILL get your home rented.
Every landlord has his share of horror stories about tenants who didn't pay up or didn't care for the property. At Longwood Realty & Property Management, we believe that the best way to avoid problems down the road is to start with quality tenants.
We don't simply rent to the first people who call. Instead, we spend time with interested prospects, showing them the property, asking questions and getting to know them.
We then have a thorough application process. Our credit and background checks are more extensive than most other property management companies (Go ahead and compare, yes, we do have higher level of application standards). It may sound tedious, but it works.
We rarely evict a tenant which is pretty impressive for a company that manages hundreds of properties.
Protect the Value of Your Home
If a renter doesn't maintain your property, you could see its value plunge. That means costly repairs or a lower asking price when you eventually sell. Neither one is a great option.
Longwood Realty and Property Management helps ensure that your home is properly cared for. The first important step is to deliver a rental property clean to a tenant at lease commencement. If the tenants knows that you/we care about the property, they will too. We let the tenants know that we are hands-on property managers from day one. They can easily contact us if a maintenance situation arises, but to also perform mid-lease walkthrough and a final walkthrough to properly document the property's condition. We are approachable and we take action. Little grievances don't have a chance to become big problems.

"No matter what experience I have had in my property I have always gotten a timely and efficient response from ORPM. I have had some rather irritating situations in my home (by no fault of ORPM) and I always feel better after speaking to any member of the staff. My experience has always been above par from the time I found the property online. Stephanie went above and beyond to help me move in under and extreme time crunch. There's no name for Christina other than an angel! She is always kind, efficient, and a pleasure to work with."
"For the past 2 years we have rented with Longwood Realty, we have been nothing but completely satisfied with their team and great customer service. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a rental. Thank you Longwood Realty and Property Management!"
"Great experience with this property management company I would highly recommend them."
"They have managed my house for the past four years. I have never had an issue that anyone speaks of. When something needs to be fixed they let me know and then they send someone over to fix it. I had a tenant leave three months early and they found someone to move in without a break in time. I don't know what renters go through but as far as having them mange your property, I would recommend it and have to two other people. I deal with Cristina and she is always helpful."
"I like working with people that provide good service. Longwood Realty and Property Management provides good service. Mary manages my rental property and has always communicated with me. She keeps me informed of whats going on."
"ORPM has been a very good property management company for me. They have managed my unit for 3 years now. There were major water issues related to the patios at my condo complex and ORPM was able to handle the whole situation for me, which took many many months to rectify. They are extremely communicative and easy to work with."
"Hi, I wanted to let everyone know how impressed I was with both Sherry and Lisette. I just signed a lease today on a property in Metro West and I couldn't be more impressed with ORPM's staff. From the first phone call, Sherry was so responsive and helpful. She always returned my phone calls quickly and really guided me through the whole process. I felt like I had a strong advocate in my corner and I REALLY appreciated that. Lisette was also extremely helpful with all of our lease questions. Should I or my friends near realtor services in the future, I will DEFINITELY recommend this office. Thank you!!"
"As we celebrate St. Patrick's Day and enter into springtime soon, I would like to take a moment to express our gratitude to Lisette and this management company . We are into our forth year of rental at this property, and, although we arrived here under great duress having lost our home of 19 years to hurricane distruction, we have found this home and rental experience to be a very positive experience. The professional service we have received from Lisette, and Keller Williams has made our lives here very pleasant indeed. We originally thought we were only going to be here for one year. But the peace of mind we have enjoyed and great service on many levels from you have prompted us to want to just stay here and not even think of moving at this time. They have always answered all of our concerns in a very timely manner, and we appreciate the respectful and friendly attitude you have expressed to us. We look forward to remaining with this management team for some time to come."
"It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Lisette. She has been one of the best real estate professional that I have worked with. She has always responded to my emails/phone calls very promptly. My overall experience of owning a rental property has been so positive with you, that I am now seriously considering to buy another property in Longwood and have it managed by her. My property was rented in less than 2 weeks at a much higher rent (almost 10% more) than I expected. The process of leasing the property and inducting the tenant was seamless for me. The tenant has now been in the property for almost 4 months and there is almost no involvement from my side. Everything is handled by ORPM."
"I have, for several years had my property managed by ORPM. I have found the team to be professional and excellent in representing, not only the owner, but the tenant as well. Mary Barker has been my point of contact and she has handled a variety of challenges for me, always in a manner that I truly appreciate. The fees are worth every dollar, especially if you have busy schedule. They handle all my rentals, and the longest it has taken to re-rent is 8 days."
"This was the first time rending my home and ORPM was with me each step of the way. They met with possible tenants 24hours a day, weeded out applications, and hired a cleaning service. They have a company that does the home improvements, but we had to work through a few issues. In the end the issues were resolved and my place is now rented. The company is not pushy, and will work with you on what you need. They keep you up to date on the progress of the rental, and do everything they can to get it rented."
"I have been a client of ORPM for 4 years now. They have been a wonderful property management company. I am out of state so I really rely on them to be on the ball in overseeing the occupancy, upkeep and care of my condo. My community has a very strict association and this past year we had some severe water issues that needed to be addressed. Mary Barker with ORPM took swift action to get all the information, source contractors and work within the Associations guidelines to repair the damage and correct the structural issues to avoid future problems. Thankfully I've had the same tenant for the entire duration of the rental which I can definitely attribute that to the professional management that ORPM provides. I am extremely satisfied with the communication and service that ORPM provides me and I would recommend them to anyone."
"I have nothing but good things to say about ORPM. They have been taken great care of our properties. Jamie's positive energy is contagious and whenever we need any documentation from the accounts department, we are helped efficiently and effectively. I really appreciate everything ORPM has done."
Longwood has been a destination point for Florida travelers since coastal tribes used The Senator, an ancient bald cypress, to find their way over land from the St. Johns River to trading grounds at Spring Hammock. This was the wilderness sanctuary early tribes found when they escaped inland from the Spanish. Later, when Creeks and others from the tribes of the Southeast United States fled into Spanish Florida and settled new villages among escaped African slaves, they became the Seminoles. The word "Seminole" is adopted from Spanish and Creek terms for people who live away from others. The Senator, at more than 3000 years old, is easily Central Florida’s oldest tourist attraction and can still be seen today at Big Tree Park in Seminole County’s Spring Hammock Preserve near Longwood. As far as American Colonial history goes, Longwood as well as most of Seminole County, shares its frontier beginnings with the early settlement of Orange, Lake, Brevard, Volusia and Osceola Counties that make up the Orlando Metro Area. Central Florida's development began after the Second Seminole War (1837-1842). By the early 1860s, both Sanford and Orlando were small settlements that had developed near the Seminole War forts built between 1837 and 1838. Settlers began arriving at what would become Longwood during the lull between the end of the Seminole Wars in the 1850’s and the beginning of the Civil War.
