We are an Illinois-licensed brokerage and have specialized in professional property management since 1988. Property owners choose Christone Enterprises for the security of knowing we only place quality tenants in their properties. Consistent tenant referrals from strong Armed Services related advertising and our extensive network of licensed real-estate sales professionals ensure our owners always have demand for their vacant properties. Christone Enterprises provides valuable peace of mind and our clients know their properties are in good hands, even if they are halfway around the world.
We service residential communities and specialize in providing a hassle-free and ultimate living experience for tenants while delivering specially designed services to our owner-investor clients. We take the stress and worries out of being a landlord while creating maximum value for our property owners.
The services we provide are driven by the business goals of our clients and are constantly evolving. In fact, the only element of our environment that remains constant is the reality of change. For this reason, Christone Enterprises uses the most technologically advanced property management platform available. This proprietary End-to-End integration allows us to achieve greater operational efficiently while also reducing manual and paper based processing. Our entire agency utilizes one single system for flexibility, integration and ease of use. This allows us to provide unparalleled service to our property owner clients and tenants.
AN OVERVIEW OF OUR SERVICES:
THOROUGH TENANT SCREENING
- Christone Enterprises believes a rewarding rental experience begins with placing the right tenants. This is why we perform in-depth screening for every tenant placed to include full credit examination, criminal background check, prior landlord references and employment/income verification to guarantee we lease only to qualified and responsible residents. Our attorney-approved leases require tenants to return properties to us in the same condition as when they moved in, providing strong protection for our agency and homeowners. Tenants know what to expect when they move in, and know what we expect when they move out.
PROFESSIONAL ACCOUNTING DEPARTMENT
- Because our industry is based on a high volume of transactions, it is very quite complex and quite competitive. Managing relationships between owners and tenants requires our agency to act quickly and provide accurate information on demand, in a real-time environment. Our accounting department oversees all financial transactions between Christone owners, investors, tenants and vendors while providing comprehensive, detailed financial reporting and full cost analysis statements. We offer the quickest funds processing in the industry via ACH electronic transfer to your bank account of choice, but can issue paper checks, if preferred.
STRONG RESOURCES FOR TENANTS AND REFERRALS
- We cover the entire Metro-East area with a unique, broad-range of advertising to maximize exposure and present your property to the largest available rental market. As the majority of our tenants and property owners are military, we ensure our listings with military-affiliated sources are current and accurate. Coverage continues with aggressive online advertising and consistent referrals of quality tenants from our network of licensed real-estate sales agents. By evaluating current market conditions, we make sure your property rents at its highest value and in the shortest amount of time.
IN-HOUSE MAINTENANCE TEAM | $20/HR PLUS MATERIALS
- Our in-house maintenance team, ELM Construction, is fully-licensed and insured to handle your property’s routine maintenance 24 hours a day. We get the job done right by providing qualified, reasonably-priced maintenance personnel. Our network of professional contractors ensures we’re able to effectively handle your property’s larger needs and we also provide in-house financing to allow our owners flexibility when maintenance issues pop-up. From a new faucet to a new roof, we can handle it. Christone Enterprises understands that your property is an investment and we are committed to protecting its value through proper maintenance.
INCOME TAX ASSISTANCE AND PROPERTY TAX REVIEWS
- We simplify tax preparation by providing the expenses required to complete your Schedule E. Advertising, maintenance, management fees, repairs and utility costs can be provided to you at year’s end as part of our service to you. Christone Enterprises is also willing to review your property taxes and initiate a protest, if appropriate. We’re by your side when the Tax Man Cometh.
COMPREHENSIVE HOME PROTECTION PLAN
- Christone Enterprises continues to lead the way in property management by offering an exclusive in-house Home Protection Plan. Our HPP provides you with peace of mind by limiting liability on maintenance costs. We protect all of your property’s minor and major systems, including appliances. One low deductible covers repair or replacement and protects your investment. Please contact us for more information on this voluntary program.
