To Whoever Is Trying To Manage Investment Rental Properties,
I want to take a bit of time to express my great appreciation to Natalie Dustman and her team at Proform Real Estate.
I cannot imagine a situation worse than mine as I was attempting to manage two rental properties in addition to running a business and having a life. The situation I was in was not too big for Natalie, Jyll, Tyler and the others to handle. One property was reasonably fine. The lease was not as it should have been to discourage the tenants from moving out at the absolutely worst time of year.
But that was just the beginning of my problems. For the other property, my own efforts only produced tenants that were continually damaging the property, first with unattended children and pets and then with wild and illegal activity. I learned from the police and neighbors that squad cars were repeatedly visiting the residence. The tenant was posing as the owner and wrongfully subletting. The worst case was a drug raid on the basement sub-tenant's drug business, significantly damaging the home more.
In the end I was even threatened. The ensuing police report revealed to me all the drama I had missed and that the location had been tagged for constant surveillance as the tenants and frequent friends were associated with prison gangs.
All this is testimony to how bad things can get when doing it yourself. Still, it wasn't too big of a challenge for Proform to correct for me.
Professionally, calmly and methodically Proform has taken care of the transition of evicting the bad tenants, restoring the dwelling within my budget, dealing with a beaten-down owner, finding respectable low-risk tenants and restoring the cash flow of my investment. Natalie has repeatedly gone out of her way and skillfully explained the situation, what's going on and what should happen to right the situation.
Very soon the cash flow will be positive again, I won't have to stress over things and won't be pulled away from my livelihood by the predictable trials of property management.
Natalie and team, I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
We have been using Proform for over a year now on 2 of our multi family investment properties in Denver. Natalie and her team have done a very good job with the management and Tyler has kept all the units leased. They are responsive when I call or email with my questions, which I have quite a few, since I also manage some of our other properties myself.
I will never use anyone else! After numerous bad experiences with other companies, Proform restored my faith in property management. Thanks for making it easy to be an out of state landlord!
Proform is the management company that encompasses it all. I have been in the industry for the last 18 years and over the past 10 years have worked side by side with some of Colorado’s largest property management companies. The best part of Proform is that the company has several different aspects of the company. The fact that they have the ability to do full property management all the way down to just property consulting to make sure your investment is a profitable investment. Proform has been a great referral source for us and our investors.

I own and operate commercial property and I also have a portfolio of residential rentals. Up until 2012, it was a one-man-show; I would handle leasing, maintenance and rent collection. A hesitation with giving up control was the perceived loss of quality and attention plus, I couldn't find a management group with a reasonable or realistic pricing model.
Natalie takes a different approach to property management that really resonates with an operator who has been doing it themselves; from pricing to performance on leasing and an understanding of urgency for critical repairs. I still participate and am very much involved but that's my personality. After two years, I am confident placing my trust in Natalie and I am glad for the support of the Proform team.
If you're looking for someone to manage your property, Proform is the team you want. I've worked in property management and have used Proform with my investment property and regard this company as a stand out company in this industry. There are so many property managers who have a "slum lord," mentality concerned with making money first and doing as little as possible in regards to proper property maintenance and care for tenant satisfaction. These guys have a strong back-bone of integrity, which is not that easy to find. Thanks Proform for making a stand for doing the right thing!
When it comes to property management there is no one better. You can tell they are very passionate and professional when it comes to the care of their tenants. As a property owner myself, I would not hesitate to recommend Natalie and her staff to anyone looking for a manager to handle their home. Refreshing in a business that requires so much trust.
Mina and I wanted to let you know that we are very pleased thus far on how you and your team have handled yourselves and the property not to mention our over eager expectations. You and Tyler have certainly risen above and beyond but most importantly you have exceeded every expectation we had. We could not have been more happy with the services we have paid for, the blood sweat and tears of our home ownership and equity have been able to survive another day thanks to you and your team of professionals.

I normally don't write reviews other then food establishments, but my experience renting my apartment from Proform was so great I felt like it was necessary to reach out and tell the world all about it. It's nice when a property management company actually takes there time to go over the lease with you, deliver keys timely and get you into your apartment quickly. The application was easy, and once I was approved I was able to move into my apartment, which was the same day I looked at the place. You can even just drop your check off at their office, which is off of Lincoln and next door to their office is coffee shop and I love getting my coffee on. I'm rambling now, but when I first walked into my apartment it was very clean and ready to make my new home.
1. Friendly Staff
2. Prompt Service
3. Easy ways to pay rent
4. Simple lease
5. No pet deposit just a small pet rent
that's why Proform gets 5 stars.
Truly happy with the service.
This is just a short note letting you know the positive impact Proform RE has had on our 25 unit apartment building over the past six months. The tenants in our building enjoy the option of paying their rent on line which saves us time in collecting rents and going to the bank to make deposits. Having copies of documents on-line (i.e. Leases, Tenant Handbooks, applications, etc.) for both the tenants and us to view or download copies at any time is a great. The one feature that is invaluable to me is being able to see in a 90 day period which tenant leases are going to expire and how many days to that expiration date.
We know that if or when we decide to sell this building, having the Proform RE service already setup will be an added selling feature for a new buyer.
Thanks again for your excellent service.
