Lucas & Hollingsworth Real Estate management was founded by Greg Lucas and Kevin Hollingsworth, friends & colleagues since 1985, who own investment properties, and understand the needs of investment property owners. We are currently managing real estate valued in excess of $20 million.
Our property management professionals maintain the property in the best feasible condition in order to expedite renting and leasing. We are keenly aware that the highest possible income requires a well maintained property, effective cost control, and quality tenants, resulting in the highest property value.
The management of investment property is constantly evolving. Tenants are utilizing the legal system now more than ever, and government authorities are imposing greater restrictions on landlords. As such, we are aware that it is important for a management company to quickly and effectively respond, yet remain within the legal framework.
We believe our program of periodic property inspections, thorough tenant screening, quick response, and a friendly yet firm relationship with resident managers & tenants all lend to property value.
