HomeMarke Approved Vendors
HomeMarke uses local, licensed and insured vendors that are competent and reliable. We also have dedicated all-around maintenance sub-contractors who are capable in a wide range of home repairs. All of our vendors are contracted with us to provide the best possible service at the best possible price and accept full liability should a mishap arise out of the result of their work or a problem with one of their employees.
Our vendors include:
Advanced Comfort Services
Abbey Carpet & Floor Gallery
David Gray Plumbing
Zachary’s Chem Dry
Denmark & Sons Appliance Service
Stone Bridge Construction
First Choice Supply
Construction Solutions & Supply
Above & Beyond Tree Service
Most vendors range in price from $35 per hour to $85, and sometimes more for conditions such as an after-hours emergency services. When possible, we try to have our ‘go-to crew’ handle most of the multi-trade and make-ready tasks to save our owners money on repairs by cutting down on the number of service calls to the property by different vendors. It also means that if a general repair is scheduled, the ‘go-to-crew’ will check the a/c filter, sink drains, smoke alarms and general condition of the property – something that a single trade vendor will not do for you.
We think we have developed a very sensible approach to handling maintenance and repairs and that you will realize cost savings that other property managers simply can’t deliver.
We are also happy to work with home warranty companies such as Old Republic Home Warranty, American Home Shield, Broward Factory Service and other warranty services. However, in the event the home warranty company cannot complete repairs in a timely manner and there are extreme circumstances (such as extended loss of electricity, plumbing, HV/AC, refrigeration or serious roof leaks/damage ) that are adversely effecting the property or the health and well being of the residents; then, it may be necessary to facilitate the repair with one of our contacted vendors.

If you’ve set-up an annual service with a vendor and they are billing you directly, you are welcome to to have the vendor call us to schedule the appointment and for entry.
However, we already have a stable of very qualified and reasonably priced vendors that we have used for many years. If you would like to nominate a service company to be added to our vendor list, they can contact us and we will interview them and let them know what documentation and references we need, what our invoicing and payment policy is, etc. We cannot guaranty however that your favorite company will be sent on all service calls to your home. Our concern is always to resolve repair problems in the most efficient way possible with the best available vendor at the time.
Property managers can’t keep track of a pre-established roster of vendors assigned to certain properties – it would be a cumbersome and inefficient property management system and would not achieve the best service to the tenant and your investment property.
Our professional reputation as property managers, both with tenants and owners, is largely, if not almost entirely, determined by the effectiveness with which we handle maintenance. We follow a practice that is most likely to insure the best possible response and resolution to maintenance and repair problems for your property.[/toggle]
