Comparison Checklist

Due to the changes in the residential real estate market, many agents and companies are adding property management to their services. Unfortunately, property management is not for the faint of heart — nor should you become a guinea pig for someone's learning curve.

We have been servicing property management needs in the Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, and St. Clair County areas for the past 30 years. Service Specialties II, Inc. is also a proud member of the National Association of Property Managers.
