I had an unfinished attic that I wanted converted into another bedroom. Kevin came out the next day that I spoke with him on the phone and walked through the space and gave me some ideas. Once we came up with a plan, he gave me a quote and had a crew out in less than a week.The room not looks better than I had ever envisioned it and the quote he gave me was the price I paid. The crew was very friendly and seemed to be working fast but not skipping any detail. If you are wanting to remodel your home, I would vogue for this place in a heartbeat!

RCPM has managed a property for me for several years. I have been pleased with the way the company has promptly responded to my concerns as well as to those of the tenant. I feel very confident in the professional manner in which issues are addressed and resolved. Robyn and Julie have been particularly helpful, and I appreciate the care and attention they have given in a variety of situations.

Stay away from River City Property Management. They pride themselves on poor customer service, high fees, and doing the absolute minimum required repair when there is a maintenance issue. The property managers do not have backup coverage, so if yours goes on vacation there will not be a single person available who can answer even a rudimentary question.

While the application process is easy, and any necessary repairs are made promptly, Make sure you take a VIDEO of the place before moving out. Shadyness abounds when you leave. The owner of CPM doesn't follow the law.
Tips & Advices
If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered.
Absolutely ask. Paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. Include this payment plan in the contract, as well.
Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work and all costs are listed in the contract, including details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse.
Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.
Yes. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.
