The 20 Best Property Management Companies in St. Louis for 2021

Single-family home sales prices in St. Louis are up more than 26% compared to last year, while the monthly supply of inventory is down nearly 50% compared to last year, according to St. Louis Realtors.

After getting your offer accepted for a rental property in St. Louis, the next step is to line up a good property manager before you close escrow. That way you can hit the ground running and not worry about issues such as rent collection and maintenance falling through the cracks.

To help speed up your search we recently contacted the best property management companies in St. Louis and asked them for the following information (if available):

  • BBB Rating
  • Years in Business
  • Property Management Fee
  • Leasing Fee
  • Renewal Leasing Fee
  • Maintenance Fee
  • Property Setup Fee
  • Project Management Fee
  • Rentals Managed

Each St. Louis property management company was given about 24 hours to respond to our inquiry. That’s about the same amount of time you’d expect a good manager to react to a leasing inquiry, routine tenant maintenance requests, or questions from a remote real estate investor about property management services in St. Louis.

Information on companies that didn’t respond was gathered from publicly available sources on the internet.

We’ve also included  Roofstock Preferred Property Managers in St. Louis. All Roofstock property managers are vetted by our team of experts, certified, and monitored for ongoing performance with our network of investors.

Note: Roofstock investors potentially receive preferred pricing through vendors specified below as Roofstock Preferred Property Managers.

Provident Property Management

Alann Severinsen with Provident Property Management promptly replied to our inquiry and provided the following information:

Provident Property management’s goal is to create executive experiences for their owners. Their entire management system was developed with an “owner mentality”. When you work with them you are working with teams of experts, not a single individual juggling a hundred properties and real estate sales. This keeps tenants happy, and happy tenants stay longer and create fewer problems. They do this by working with owners who are looking for a hands-off experience, trust Provident’s system and processes, and let Provident be the landlord while you focus on being the investor.

Key Metrics:

  • BBB Rating: N/A
  • Years in Business: 10 years
  • Property Management Fee: 3 service package options - 10%, 9% or 7.5% of monthly income. Each service package is meant to meet the needs of how active renter vacancy is at a unit. Units that experience higher levels of vacancy better utilize the 10% service where the tenant placement fee is half. Units that have long-term tenants and little vacancy better utilize the 7.5% with a low monthly expense. The average owner usually takes the 9% service, which includes the most services in its price.
  • Leasing Fee: 50% of first month’s rent in the 10% management fee option, and 100% of first month’s rent in the 9% and 7.5% service package options.
  • Renewal Leasing Fee: Free for the 10% and 9% services, and $150 for the 7.5% service
  • Maintenance Fee: In-house hourly rate and a 10% outside vendor charge with a cap of $65.
  • Property Setup Fee: Free for 10% and 9% service, $150 for 7.5% service
  • Project Management Fee: A percentage of the project with a minimum and cap cost based on their involvement. Projects that need site visits and multiple contractor coordination are billed out hourly as a GC would. Simple phone calls to 3rd party techs are billed at a small flat rate.
  • Rentals Managed: 340+ rental units
