DMR finds tenants for great rentals

We know it can be difficult finding a good rental in Maui. It can also be pretty tough to find and keep quality tenants. Our property management team has a substantial amount of experience with these challenges and we know how to overcome them. One of the greatest benefits to hiring Destination Maui Realty as a long-term rental manager is putting our market knowledge to work in finding that balance between maximizing your income and minimizing vacancies, then helping find good tenants. We also create a thorough lease document, advise on maintenance issues, perform regular inspections and provide comprehensive owners reports, including a year end summary for tax preparation.

Many people ask what the secret is to finding tenants that pay their rent, maintain the property, and communicate appropriately with their landlord. For us, it starts with a comprehensive online application process. We meet with prospective tenants personally and establish communications. We use an extensive screening process that reviews income, rental history and other factors to help owners make informed decisions about tenants.


We have repair and cleaning contractors on speed dial

Self managing a rental property can be a hassle. Destination Maui Realty property manager can reduce stress on owners by relieving owners of late night emergency maintenance calls and finding good contractors for repairs and cleaning. We provide a direct contact for tenants, and have an on-line maintenance request form. We also have a firm but fair rent collection policy, so an owner is not stuck chasing rent payments.

We also have the best “back of house” operation and accounting in the business. Destination Maui Realty’s President is Ron Kawahara, a well established CPA on the island, who designed a detailed owners report. Owners can retrieve their statements online at any time through our website, or the information can be emailed or mailed.
Good tenants appreciate renting through Destination Maui Realty. There are a lot of great owners on island self-managing properties, and there are just as many not so great ones. One complaint we hear of is withholding deposits unfairly or overcharging on deposits. Why would a tenant want to take a chance with their time and money? Destination Maui Realty is well versed in housing laws to protect both parties in a landlord-tenant relationship. Our policies are well laid out for the tenant ahead of time, and we maintain good communication throughout the process.
Properties for rent are effectively marketed, including an online portfolio of properties for rent. If a prospective tenant sees a property they like, they can apply immediately with our custom web application form. Note- if you don’t see many residential properties listed, it is because in this rental market, with our extensive reach, they do not stay as listings very long! While we focused on long-term residential property management, we also manage commercial properties. Rental properties are additionally promoted through social media and print ads, as well as networking with our extensive contacts.
We manage properties all over the island, including West Maui, South Maui, Central Maui and Up Country, including Haiku and Makawao. Once a property is rented, tenants can pay rent through our secure, fast and free online portal.

If a condominium would like property management services for the whole complex, we do that too, under our sister company Destination Maui, Inc. As the largest provider of association management services in the county, Destination Maui, Inc. can also provide an on-site property manager, or handle the payroll and accounting if a property would like to hire their own manager.
We have a division exclusively for vacation rentals, DestinationMauiVacations.com, representing properties in South and West Maui as well as Maalaaea.
