Hidden Key Properties Team's focus is to provide exceptional personal service to all of their clients and customers. Therefore, they limit the number of properties they serve to ensure a quality and individualized experience for both tenants and owners. A key to Hidden Key Properties Team's success has been through word of mouth, with a sole focus on building one happy client at a time. The fundamentals of their program that allow them to stand out in the market and that form the core of their success are:
Better ValueThrough a more efficient approach to guest management, Hidden Key Properties Team believes they can succeed and prosper while providing extraordinary levels of service at commission rates substantially below the typically 35% – 40% or higher rates found throughout the local market. This ultimately puts more money in their owners’ pocket at the end of the day, helps them to achieve happy customers, and ultimately helps them grow their business through referrals.
Better ServiceThis is something that every company claims to provide, but it is a key principle behind why Hidden Key Properties Team formed their company in an effort to offer something new in a rental market that desperately needs it. They are committed to honesty, integrity, and hard work in everything they do – and Hidden Key Properties Team hopes that it reflects in the properties they manage and in the relationships they have cultivated in the area over the last 6 years. They pride themselves on their happy customers, and welcome the opportunity to provide you with a list of referrals from their current owners.
Forming a "Team" with their ClientsWithout a doubt, teamwork has been the most valuable lesson Hidden Key Properties Team has learned over the years. Hidden Key Properties Team's service is founded on the concept of forming a “team” with their clients, where they are mutually working to protect the clients’ large investment in their property, while maximizing their net return. Hidden Key Properties Team accomplished this by eliminating the standard methods that rental management companies use to profit ‘from’ their clients, as opposed to ‘with’ them. They do not ‘nickel & dime’ their clients – a practice that is so pervasive in the industry and such a source of frustration for owners. Hidden Key Properties Team works hard to earn a flat and fair percentage of each dollar they earn for the client (typically 20% – 30%) – and that’s it. The guests pay the cleaning fees, amenity fees, and taxes. As a result, if a client has a two week booking for $1000, they know they are taking home their 70% or 80% of that fee, without a long list of typical deductions. It sounds simple and it is! Hidden Key Properties Team are excited to provide their clients with this type of service that is many times lacking in the property management industry.
Maintenance & Care for Your PropertyThe team at Hidden Key Properties understands the substantial investment that their owners have in their properties, and they fully appreciate the responsibility that their owners have entrusted them with caring for their homes. In addition to ensuring the best possible experience for their guests, Hidden Key Properties Team knows that owners demand and expect that their properties are cared for as if they were their own. Moreover, as owners of rental properties themselves, Hidden Key Properties Team strives to keep their costs down while maintaining a desirable property for their guests. For the non-routine maintenance items that do occur, Hidden Key Properties Team work closely with their owners to coordinate the repairs through an extensive group of the best sub-contractors in the market. Finally, Hidden Key Properties Team knows that prompt and courteous service is the cornerstone to ensuring happy guests that return year after year, and they offer 24 hour maintenance on-call for any emergencies to help meet that need.
Vacations, Made Simple from Start to FinishFrom the moment a potential guest inquires about one of their properties, Hidden Key Properties Team strives to do everything possible to make their guests’ experiences straight-forward and carefree; after all, this is their vacation. Hidden Key Properties Team's belief is that booking a vacation should be both simple and enjoyable. Quick and helpful communication with their potential guests sets them apart from other vacation rental companies. Pre-arrival letters are then emailed to each guests a few weeks prior to their arrival which include directions to the property, parking information, access codes, and everything a guest needs to know in advance to ensure a great trip and easy check-in process.
Presentation & Housekeeping
A clean, well-presented property is absolutely critical to any guest or owner’s experience in Hidden Key properties. Their properties are professionally cared for. Hidden Key Properties Team strives to make sure their properties are the absolute cleanest in the business – bar none.
