I just rented a home from Realty Trust, which I love…. Glenn is AWESOME! He was very professional, fast and prompt. He went above and beyond by repairing something that wasn’t on the current work order. Not many folks offer that type of customer service these days and I appreciate it.

5/5

What sold me on Realty Trust was their marketing system for securing new tenants. What has kept me loyal as a client has been their attention to my properties, treating them as if they were their own, and their exceptional service.
