WHO IS REAL ESTATE DIRECT

Real Estate Direct was formed in 1997 by successful real estate agent and broker Frank Schrader. Over the past twenty-five plus years, Real Estate Direct has grown to encompass Brevard County and now employs one administrator, ten agents, and two full-time property managers who manage over 100 properties across the county. While we value a strong approach to marketing, we are conservative in our growth model and believe that a steady rate of expansion builds a solid foundation that lasts for decades; for this reason, we have chosen to call Brevard our home and are happy to help you find the best the Space Coast can offer!

Our conservative approach is not the only factor we attribute to our ability to thrive through the ups and downs of the market. It is our strict adherence to our three core values which have led us to the twenty-first century:

Integrity 

We focus on frank and open discussion with our clients. We have found that, in this business, honesty is the best policy and strive to ensure that our clients receive the facts about their property directly. Agents who sugar-coat or gloss over the facts of a property quite frankly do not last in the real estate business. We are looking to build permanent and long-term relationships with our clients and we can only do that by proving the value of Real Estate Direct’s integrity.

Dedication

We don’t believe in limiting ourselves to any one aspect of the real estate industry because we are dedicated to ensuring that we are there for you no matter which real estate endeavors you choose to embark upon. Whether you are ready to buy, sell, or lease a residential or commercial property our dedicated agents will be ready and waiting to guide you along the way.

Excellence

Our dedication and integrity both contribute to making us the best in Brevard. We are committed to providing the best space coast property management to our clients in the industry. As a result, we are among the best rated real estate agencies in Brevard and offer the best combination of marketing, customer service, accuracy, and value to provide a fantastic experience overall.

Space Coast Property Management: What Makes Us Successful

If you own property on Florida’s Space Coast, you know that managing it might be a challenge. From finding reliable tenants to handling maintenance and repairs, there’s a lot to keep track of. Fortunately for you, with the right strategies and resources, you can make property management easy. We’ll share expert tips and insights that helped us succeed with Space Coast property management.

Keep accurate records and communicate effectively.

One of the most important aspects of successful Space Coast property management is keeping accurate records and communicating with tenants. This includes keeping track of rent payments, maintenance requests, and any other important information related to the property. It’s also important to have clear communication with tenants, addressing any concerns or issues they may have quickly. By staying organized and communicating, you can build strong relationships with your tenants and ensure the success of your property management efforts.

Effective property management requires a strong focus on record-keeping and open communication with tenants. Accurate record-keeping is crucial for maintaining financial stability and ensuring that all aspects of property management are running smoothly. This includes keeping track of rent payments, security deposits, and any additional fees or expenses related to the property.

By maintaining detailed records, property managers can easily monitor rental income, track expenses, and generate reports for tax purposes or financial analysis. This level of organization not only ensures compliance with legal and accounting requirements but also helps property owners make informed decisions about their investments.

Stay up-to-date on local laws and regulations.

As a property manager, it’s very important to stay informed about any local laws and regulations that may impact your property. This includes zoning laws, building codes, and rental regulations. Failure to comply with these laws can result in fines or legal issues, so it’s important to stay up-to-date and make any necessary changes to your property or management strategies. Consider joining local landlord associations or attending seminars to stay informed about any changes or updates to local laws and regulations.

Property management services understand the significance of staying informed about local laws and regulations. Their proactive approach, comprehensive knowledge, access to legal resources, and participation in professional development activities enable them to keep your rental property compliant. By relying on their expertise, you can navigate the complexities of legal requirements, mitigate legal risks, and ensure a smooth and legally sound operation of your property.

Regularly inspect and maintain the property.

Regular inspections and maintenance are essential for successful Space Coast property management. This includes checking for any necessary repairs or potential upgrades, ensuring that all appliances and systems are functioning the way they should, and addressing any safety concerns. Regular maintenance can also help prevent larger, more expensive repairs in the future. Consider creating a maintenance schedule and keeping detailed records of all inspections and repairs. This can help you stay organized and ensure that your property is always in the best condition.

Regular inspections and maintenance are integral to successful property management. Property management services understand the importance of preventative maintenance, safety compliance, timely repairs, and detailed documentation. By implementing a proactive approach to property maintenance, they enhance tenant satisfaction, reduce potential liability risks, preserve property value, and ensure the long-term success of your rental property.

I owned a lawn business for several years and Real Estate Direct was one of our best customers. Their property managers are incredibly attentive to their properties. Falling on my own sword here; I was called more than once about quality issues with... some of the crews that I had. The issues were addressed and corrected professionally, and I always enjoyed doing business with them.They communicate outstandingly well and treat their subcontractors very fairly, even when a customer has outlandish requests like having their lawn mowed every week when it's winter time and the service schedule clearly states that service is provided every other week because the grass has entered it's dormant period.read more
