Additional Services
We customize to your unique requirements. The following services may incur additional charges at our discretion.

Auto Care
Automobiles don’t like to sit for extended periods. Your car can be taken for a short drive, the engine can be started periodically, or can be re-positioned to give the appearance of activity at your home.

Exterior Maintenance

A neglected exterior indicates that a home may be unoccupied or vacant. We can manage your plant care, pool maintenance, small lawn maintenance (mowing, watering), and seasonal snow removal.

Pet Care
Finding someone to care for a family pet while you are away can be difficult. We can provide full care for small pets such as birds, cats, fish or any other small animal in your home.


When I decided to rent my mother’s home it was important to find a leasing specialist with knowledge and experience. This is why I chose PropertyHunters. I found Christine and her team to be very professional, extremely dedicated and I was kept informed throughout the leasing process. Not only were the renters carefully screened she was successful in finding me great tenants who are still in the home 4 years and counting. I have since added to my investment portfolio and would not think of hiring anyone else to rent my properties. I highly recommend PropertyHunters.

PropertyHunters presented themselves in a professional and pleasant manner. Christine’s team are very knowledgeable in the local rental market and through their marketing, social networking and hard work rented our properties quickly for more money than expected. We are pleased to recommend PropertyHunters for their experience, expertise and integrity.
