Our mission is to provide a quality living experience that encompasses exceptional customer service. By focusing on strong, open communication and by providing extensive customer service training, we can ensure an enjoyable living experience for our residents. 

We recognize the importance of high standards and competent, friendly, and professional staff at each of our communities. It is for this reason that each United Residential Properties employee participates in an intense level of training that focuses on customer service, communication skills, leasing, marketing, and maintenance.

Our hands-on approach to management ensures our communities operate efficiently. Our senior management teams provide valuable insight and training to our employees. And, by conducting routine property inspections, we’re certain to obtain a higher standard of community operations.

To ensure we continuously provide excellent service to our residents, we place importance on staying in tune with what our residents need and want. It is for this reason that we survey our customers at the time of their initial visit to our community, at the time a service request is completed, as well as any time a resident moves in or out of our community. The information gathered through these surveys then becomes the foundation for continuous improvement and ensured satisfaction.
