Property Management Call Center Services and Live Answering Solutions

Visit any competitive property management office and you’ll notice one thing: the phone doesn’t stop ringing. From maintenance workers calling to report on projects to tenants asking for extensions on rent, the phone is always in use in a leasing office. Add in the dozen or more potential calls the average office might get daily from people inquiring about property availability in the community, and you’ll understand why so many property managers feel tied to their phones. And what about those tenant calls that come in after hours? Somebody has to answer those too!

Thankfully, there are options for overburdened leasing offices in need of administrative support. MAP Communications offers a wide array of helpful services designed with property managers in mind. With MAP, you can ensure that a person is available to pick up every call your office receives, regardless of time of day or week. This means no more missed maintenance calls, no more lost opportunities to fill vacancies and no more frustrated tenants sent to voicemail.

An End to Missed Calls Thanks to Your Property Management Call Center Partner

The property management world is known for its unpredictability. We get it. Emergencies happen. There are few other industries where someone else’s heating going out or water main breaking causes you to get out of bed. Prepare for the unpredictable with MAP’s property management answering service. By offering 24-hour support, MAP can help address the problems of your tenants before they get out of control. Urgent matters can be forwarded to your on-call maintenance team, while well-trained and highly experienced agents standby to screen less important calls as they take detailed messages for you to follow up with at a more convenient time. Regardless of what kind of call our virtual receptionists receive, you can rest easy knowing your tenants’ concerns will be handled with professionalism.

Leasing agents must wear a lot of different hats in their job and can appreciate the skill and knowledge that subject matter experts bring to the table. That’s why property managers call in plumbers to repair broken pipes rather than rolling up their sleeves themselves. Consider MAP’s property management call center services an invaluable addition to your toolbox of experts. Our team is highly-trained for the specific needs of our clients, and our customizable scripts allow you to control the message you send to callers.

Take care of your current tenants with a highly responsive property management answering service that picks up calls quickly every time the phone rings.

Our team can answer questions about your property, the application process, and anything else you’d like them to communicate to callers.
