Useful Information

How do you chose the best landlord in Columbia? Can you talk directly to the landlord, the manager/owner before you lease, or only to a management employee? Who sets policies, local management or anonymous management in some distant state? Can you pick up the phone and talk to them? Will they listen if you can reach them? Before signing a lease, do due diligence: ask around, talk to tenants, get management references, check the management’s record with your friends, classmates and colleagues. Getting a bad landlord can really mess up your life.

When you rent from Warnken Properties you will know personally the managers/owners–Denice and Wendy Warnken–and you can reach them 24/7 via e-mail, leave a message on their answering service, text them or talk directly to them anytime during the working day. They are always available to answer questions, resolve issues and listen to you. And, we are recommended by our residents–the finest compliment any landlord can receive.

Our hallmarks: excellence, pride of ownership, absolute integrity. We own the property we manage, and we are committed to provide premium units and the highest standards of professional management.

We have no application fees or commissions. You work directly with the owners-managers of Warnken Properties – Denice and Wendy Warnken. That is really important. If you have a problem, there is no hassle, no run-around: call us and we take care of it.
