SMART Founder Mark Hall Recognized as Featured Top Property Manager at Top Agent Magazine

SMART is delighted to announce that Mark Hall has been featured in Top Agent Magazine’s March issue as one of the industry’s top property managers.

In an excerpt from the featured article, the magazine writes:

In 2008, Mark opened Southwestern Management And Realty Team (SMART). Serving investors, buyers and sellers across the Las Vegas Valley, Mark blends contemporary marketing techniques with good-old-fashioned customer service while focusing strictly on single-family residential properties. Given this niche, Mark and his team provide unparalleled service to property owners.

Mark earned his real estate license in 1978, working as a listing and selling agent before getting involved in property management in the 1980s. “I was a broker in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, where I managed about 75 properties,” says Hall, adding that he formed his own company before moving to Nevada in 1998. Once in Nevada, he earned his broker’s license and initially listed and sold residential real estate. But when the financial and real estate markets sank, Mark used his property management experience to gain a strong foothold in the industry.

…And, he hasn’t looked back since.

Southwestern Management And Realty Team’s comprehensive property management services include advertising rentals, screening tenants, collecting payments, managing maintenance and repairs and managing the funds for owners and tenants.

“We go above and beyond,” Mark tells Top Agent Magazine, adding that he treats rental advertisements as if they were real estate sales listings.

SMART also proudly offers monthly newsletters to owners and tenants which keep everyone abreast of updates in the community or changes in the market.
