University Realty has been managing property in Austin since 1994. We currently manage over 600 properties in the Austin Metro area ranging from multifamily residences, single-family homes, condominium units, apartment complexes, retail centers, office warehouses, and industrial properties. We have full-time professionals on staff to handle all aspects of management, leasing, and maintenance.
Timely rent collection is the number one priority of University Realty, Inc. Typically rent is due on the first of the month, however, the residents are allowed a grace period until the 3rd. Eviction proceedings may begin as early as the fourth of the month depending on the resident's history with the organization.
All maintenance requests are directed to our office. The resident is quizzed briefly regarding the nature of the difficulty and to determine if the problem can be solved without professional assistance. If professional assistance is required, the proper service person/company/homeowner's association representative is sent to the property.
Where applicable, the bylaws, rules, and regulations of a condominium community will be adhered to by University Realty, Inc. A working relationship will be established with the Homeowner's Association to handle repairs, maintenance, policy changes, and leasing in order to keep all parties informed.
Upon the receipt of a service company's bill, the bill is checked for: correct service address, correct billing rate, correct work done, etc. The bill is then approved for payment and is paid from rent collected.
Owner statements are prepared at the end of the month of activity. These statements show all receipts, all disbursements, and the ending balance. (Invoices are attached when requested. There are no invoices for management fees.) In addition, at year's end forms 1099's are prepared for income tax purposes.
Conduct periodic inspections of property in order to remain apprised of property condition and make any recommendations deemed necessary.
In addition to our in-house leasing agents, University Realty, Inc. also cooperates with other leasing companies in Austin to ensure that properties receive maximum market exposure.
