NOTE: You cannot fire us for doing “too good” of a job
Sounds strange at first glance? Our agreement between property owner and PRM Georgia shall read that we cannot be fired for doing too good of a job. What this essentially means is that our agreement to manage your property shall remain in full force and in effect so long as the initial/original tenant we have placed into the property remains there. We do a great job of pre-qualifying tenants to provide you stability. We should not be penalized for doing a good job.
