      We have been cleaning residential homes for years. Recently we've noticed an increased demand on rental properties cleaning services. We take pride in the quality of our service and make every attempt to do an excellent job. We would love to serve the NE Florida area (Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra Beach, Orange Park, St. Augustine, etc.).

       

      Hope to hear from you all. Thanks, JessiesHouseCleaning.com

          If I may suggest, I would make a flyer and go around and hand them out to all of the rental agencies in the area.  I would include references and of course you will need to meet the price needs of the agency.  I use both a rental agency and rent myself and find that I pay higher than the agency.  The same cleaner does my place for when I rent it versus the agency renting it. 

           

          I do not know if this forum is a platform that you can advertise off of but at least you got one salvo across everyone's bow!

           

          Best of luck.

              Thanks for your advise. I will make a flyer and contact the agencies. However, I would rather deal directly with the owners and meet the standard rates that they would pay if they had a rental agency manage their property. I had a bad experience with one agency, they would pay me a much lower amount and tell the owner they paid a significantly higher price for house cleaning and keep the difference. I met the owner when he stopped using the agency and started looking for a house cleaner himself.

               

              I noticed some owners manage their own properties, this would be my target demographic. Sorry for the ad, I was suggested to post this discussion by a local maid service that currently gets a lot of leads from this site. I won't do it again.

               

              Thanks,     JessiesHouseCleaning.com

                  It's fine to list your service in the Vendor Showroom section, under Resources at the top of the page.

                    I am aware of the gouging the agencies do and believe it is wrong but they are a necessity for me to help keep bookings coming in.  Instead of making them for the agencies I would make them for the property managers and go around and speak with them.  I know mine always wants to know of great cleaners to pass along to the home owners.  As an example.....I thought I had the best cleaner ever available.  Then I see her  mug shot on the Internet a few months later for theft!!!!!   I had to go to my Property Manager and ask who would she suggest that I use and now have one that is perfect for me.  You can also look up the property appraisers site for each county and get the owners address to then send them a letter.  I can not say that this would work well either and keep coming back to visiting the Property Managers.
