Key components to our residential property management and other services, which makes WFL superior to its competitors:

WFL takes complete pride and enthusiasm in the residential properties we manage. We ensure that our building teams share our philosophical values and work as team players in successfully managing your property.
WFL encourages new clients to not just speak with our references but actually visit their properties to see the level of care that the property will exhibit.
WFL utilizes a vast portfolio of vendors who service Fairfield and Westchester Counties. This ensures that we receive competitive pricing on a continuous basis. We have over 30 combined, commercial and residential properties, under management so we have preferred pricing on almost any service you will need. Whether for utilities, plumbing, electrical, landscaping, irrigation and any other service required.
Daily property inspections ensure that sub-contractors are fulfilling those obligations outlined in the contract specifications. This is just one of many essential components of the hands-on residential property management style that we promote. We do more preventative maintenance so we have less break downs and more satisfied tenants. We communicate insurance hazards and make long term recommendations to reduce future insurance claims.
We on average save a property owner 20-25 % in operating costs due to “economies of scale” buying power. Many owners are shocked when we submit an operating budget that spends less but enhances and improves services which cover our fee for managing. This comes from years of building the company and having the proper staff oversee every aspect of management.
WFL has their own maintenance team that are extremely talented to repair items like sheetrock, painting, carpentry and many other items that saves the property owner money and time. Our maintenance personnel drive WFL vans and wear WFL shirts to show the level of professionalism we promote.

We have relationships with Professionals who provide these services that can maximize rebates and government assistance for the implementation of these services.
