Let us help you turn your Okoboji weekends back into your Boji Fun time. We can handle the upkeep on your property while you are away, keeping your time here strictly to pleasure. This is called our "Turn-Key Service." We have a list of services that we can provide for you to keep your property looking great and "headache free."

We take pride in our tenant selection and want to offer only reliable and qualified tenants. We meet all prospective tentants in person when at all possible to ensure they meet all qualifications set by Okoboji Property Management. All prospective tenants are required to fill out an application and a formal rental/lease agreement. For long-term renters, we run credit, OFAC, & criminal checks. We verify employment and previous rental history. Prospective tenants must meet minimum income criteria requirements.
We will find renters for you and do appropriate rental background checks. We are compensated with a percentage of monthly rental payments & fees for additional services. Contracts can be written up to property owner's preferences for residential and commercial property units. All terms and agreements will be outlined in lease agreements and enforced accordingly.
We handle and document all rental payments, collections, rental agreements, terms and conditions through our audited trust account. We strive to make the rental process hassle free. Rent is due on the first of the month, or otherwise specified. Notices are sent out at appropriate intervals and removal proceedings are initiated if the tenant is not compliant with rental agreement.
We will carefully videotape all properties prior to and after tenant occupancy. In this video documentation, we pay special attention to property conditions and, if any, defects. Videotapes are useful tools as evidence of property condition for the tenant's security deposits.
