Our expert rental department knows that finding the right tenant is more valuable than finding just anyone.  We meet with our landlords briefly to discuss their goals for the property so that we can match them up with the most qualified tenant.  This helps our agents avoid unnecessary showings and makes it easier for them to get that lease signed as soon as possible.

We take care of all the paperwork for you, and whatever needs your review and signature can be done conveniently from a secure web-based document site.  Lamacchia Realty rental agents process the rental applications, run credit reports, draw up leases and can add any property specific addendums you require.  We will market your property for the best exposure to the best prospective tenants and all you have to do is collect the rent check!


Our rental agents have expert knowledge of our coverage area and will know how to find the right property for you!  Give us a call as soon as you’re ready to see some available rental properties and when you’re ready to sign a lease, we will take care of all the paperwork.  Our application packet will be handled by our agents but can be completed by you conveniently from our secure web-based document site.  Contact us once you are interested in seeing some properties, but please note that we require a 24-hour notice prior to showings in consideration for landlords.
