Our advantage.

Removing the management burden.

Managing rental properties can be a difficult terrain to navigate. Sometimes, one decision is the difference between spending money and making money. It requires a business strategy, plenty of resources, knowledge of lots of rules and regulations, and effective conflict resolution skills. Our proactive management style means we will be engaged in the day-to-day details, and you’ll still be in charge of calling the shots.

A system that is holistic.

 

DEDICATED MANAGERS
Rental management is a lot of work. So, to serve you better, we assign each building both a certified Property Manager and an Assistant Manager.

PROACTIVE MANAGEMENT
We have extensive systems in place to anticipate the needs of your property and tenants and identify issues before they become problems.

 

 

TECHNOLOGY
Our rental management software gives you 24/7 access to all monthly income and expenses for your property, so you can stay in control.

TRANSPARENCY
What we know, you know. We strive to share all the data we have and engage in open, honest communication to keep landlords in the loop.

 

 

BUILDING MAINTENANCE
Thanks to our own building maintenance division we can be quicker to respond to maintenance needs and monitor projects closely.

A BUSINESS PERSPECTIVE
We handle your investment property like a business – never losing sight of your bottom line – while striving to make it a great place to live.

 

Rental Management 360°

Full-Service Management for Rentals

Westward360 can go beyond the financials and directly manage all of the services for your property including maintenance, administrative services and tenant management.

  • Cleaning & maintenance
    Our in-house maintenance team and vetted, trusted partner vendors mean we take care of the “dirty work,” as needed and on your schedule.
  • Major repairs
    Preserve the value of your investment. If your property needs large renovations or repairs, we manage the entire project. This includes overseeing general contractors.
  • Project scheduling
    Keep tenants happy. We schedule repair work based on your tenants’ schedule to avoid inconvenience whenever possible. In accordance with the Chicago Tenant Landlord Ordinance, we give tenants 48-hour notice before entering their apartment.
  • 24-Hour emergency response
    We are proud to offer 24/7 emergency response. Our customer service representatives are always available, so you can submit your request and sleep better knowing we are taking care of things.
  • Record keeping
    Comply with local, state, and federal laws. We handle all record keeping according to regulations, including security deposits, lease addenda and eviction notices.
  • Insurance & tax records
    Keep organized. We maintain insurance records for all our vendors and keep track of your property’s income, including valuable tax-deductible expenses.
  • Rent collection
    Stop chasing payments. We use a convenient online payment system that offers tenants multiple payment options and make sure rent is collected on time, every month.
  • Monthly profits distribution
    Get paid quickly. We can send property owners their monthly profits via ACH (electronic) payments, so the money is deposited directly into your bank account.
  • Vendor transactions
    Enjoy better deals. We handle financial transactions with all the vendors and never mark up our contractors’ prices. Instead, we pass the savings directly to our buildings.
  • 24/7 information access
    Stay in control. Through the software we use, you can easily track and review the monthly income and expenses for all your properties, anywhere and anytime.
  • Listings management
    Maximize occupancy. We advertise vacancies through many channels and use our own leasing agents to show properties and create relationships with prospective tenants.
  • Tenant screening
    Minimize problems. We always perform background and credit checks to make sure the applicants are the right fit for your property.
  • Lease signing & enforcement
    Protect your interests. We handle the lease signing, adding any stipulations you might want to include. We then enforce the agreement and any zoning/association rules.
  • Brokerage services
    Rent to sell. If you are looking to sell, we can handle Rent-to-Own and Option-to-Buy agreements on your behalf.
