The House Renter

    We are a small concerned company that specializes in single family rental homes. We have been in this business for over forty years. Unlike large companies, we are Memphis owned. We work with our tenants in a personal way. Whenever you call our office you speak to me, Dick Simons, or Kathy Smith, Property Manager. When you have a maintenance problem you will be visited by a service team member that has been with us for many years and you will recognize their familiar faces.  Mike Sorrell is our Maintenance Manager.

    When we purchase a property or go into one recently vacated, we inspect the air conditioning/heating system, electrical and plumbing. Every property is painted, cleaned and sanitized for the next tenants so they can enter them as if they have just purchased them.  We take pride in our homes. Whenever possible we tile the kitchen and bathroom floors, remove the carpets and try to have beautiful wood floors throughout. We upgrade kitchens and bathrooms when necessary. 
    Our office is conveniently located at 3858 Summer Avenue in the Berclair section of town. The majority of our homes are located north of Summer Avenue between Perkins and North Graham. Although we have lots of homes in Berclair, we have several homes within walking distance of the University of Memphis. The rest of our homes are located in the Midtown area.
    Our rental rates are usually below the market for these areas. As an extra added bonus, if you are a good tenant and pay your rent on time we "thank you" by not raising your rent. We never surprise our tenants with large increases. You can count on staying with us with no significant change in your budget. We take pride in our properties and our company. We welcome your comments and criticisms. We will furnish references to any prospective tenant upon request. You will enjoy living in one of our properties and we will give you the opportunity to own the home you live in with our “lease purchase option”. We guarantee that we will approve your rental application within three (3) business hours. We have a very liberal credit policy and, in most cases, you can move in the same day.
    We appreciate your viewing our website. Feel free to email or call us with any questions.

Dick Simons, Kathy Smith and Mike Sorrell
