In addition to Property Management, we specialize in Residential Sales, Investment Properties, Short Sales and Pre-Foreclosures. Jax Home Maintenance the Maintenance company owned by Collins Property Managers.

The business has expanded rapidly over the years and we moved to a new location with larger facilities for the growing business in 2012. Sometimes an owner is not sure whether to sell or rent their property. Our company is uniquely poised to offer a full package. We can list a property and market it for sale, while we simultaneously market it for rent through our proven methods. The vast majority of traditional Realtors are not able to do both professionally. In early 2017 an Affiliate company, NextHomeCollins Realty opened. This provides us with superior tools and staff of Realtors to assist owners, investors and former tenants buy or sell properties.

We can also help people invest in residential properties while taking advantage of current market conditions. Our management skills experience will be especially useful as we continue to expand our Property Management business.
