Experience and professionalism
make a difference. But don't take our word for it.
Our clients and associates
speak about us:
I just wanted to say "Thank You" for
being such an incredible group of people to work with over the past
(almost) seven years. It's hard to believe it's been that
long! All of you are a large part of why I stayed so long.
There has never been a time any of you were unwilling to help and
didn't act promptly when I needed something. Additionally, the
people you sent to help were always kind, professional and
efficient. I can't tell you how much that has been
appreciated.... [That condo] always felt like my home rather than
just a place I rented.
-- Stephanie B., Kentucky
I was very pleased with Modern
Property's excellent service and attention to detail. You and
your staff were always on top of things... In fact, you would even go beyond the
scope of our agreement to look out for my bottom line. One of
the best examples [is] when you wrote to the city on behalf of all
your owners to ask for a property tax reduction that you, in fact,
did get... I must say that I was especially pleased that you were
able to complete or manage any repair or
improvement project that I had. This was very important to me
considering I live about 2,000 miles away. I would recommend
your property management services to anyone who calls.
-- Darryl K., California
Tim, thank you for your hard work,
and that of your employees, during our parking lot renovation.
The weather caused a few set backs but you all kept in really good
communication with myself, Ashley, and the rest of the neighborhood.
-- Nick R., Kentucky
[Modern Property's] recruitment,
retention and management of tenants have been outstanding. They
have the ability to keep me well-informed and recognize when there
is the necessity to involve me in the decision making process and
when to take care of a problem themselves. In addition, their
financial reporting is excellent and provides me with all of the
information I need.
-- John W., Kentucky
I just want to express my sincere
thanks for the quality service you have provided... I am
continually impressed by your professionalism and timely
reporting... You've made my life so much simpler. I
truly appreciate your efforts on my behalf.
-- Louis D., Florida
Tim Scott's company, Modern Property
Management, Inc., managed my multi-family apartment buildings in
Lexington for several years. He and his team were very
attentive to my budget and goals for the properties. Whenever
I had questions about any aspect of the maintenance and management,
I quickly got thorough answers. Tim is very knowledgeable of
multi-family, especially older properties, their maintenance and
renovation needs, and of market forces that impact rentability.
His expertise was vital to me in strategizing how to keep the units
rented, and how to maximize the potential of the buildings.
Tim also knows his way around Lexington regulatory agencies and
street-level politics, which has turned out to be a major benefit to
me, both personally and in keeping costs down... I highly
recommend Modern Property Management, Inc. to anyone needing
management, 24/7 maintenance, or renovation.
-- Elin C., California
I have recently started investing in
rental property... Since I live in California, I needed to
find a management company that I could trust to manage my condo for
me. I checked out several in Lexington, got a few
recommendations and settled on Modern Property Management...
My unit has never been vacant. This has been a great comfort
to me. I was able to have the confidence that my mortgage,
insurance, and property taxes were going to be paid since I knew it
would be occupied... I was made aware of some issues at Modern
Property with one of the people who did the bookkeeping... we
decided to continue our business with [Modern Property] because of
their commitment to us and their professionalism throughout this
ordeal... I am very confident that Modern Property has
recovered from their mishap and the service they are providing is
second to none. I would recommend Modern Property to my
friends who live out of state and are looking for a company to
manage their property.
-- Steve K., California
My wife and I own two houses in
Lexington, KY adjacent to the University of Kentucky campus, which
units are rented to students. The original owner of the
building served as our building manager for eight years, until such
time as we found that money was being scammed, repairs were being
overcharged, and accounting was virtually non-existent. Thus,
having been burned by trusting the wrong individual, as an attorney,
I undertook substantial due diligence, talking with other landlords
and real estate lawyers in Lexington before I decided upon MPM.
We placed our properties under MPM management in late 2011 and found
their rental efforts, rehab expenses, management fees, attention to
detail, responsiveness and follow-up to be absolutely beyond
reproach. On a purely personal note, as my wife is our
in-house CFO, the switch to MPM reduced a huge amount of stress in
our marriage! All proceeded beautifully until MPM was
victimized by a very cunning, first-time thief, notwithstanding that
MPM had undertaken thorough background checks. Despite a clean
background, MPM took the additional step of securing a fidelity bond
to ensure against the unlikely event of a defalcation. Having
represented parties in the past who have been victimized by bank
defalcations, I can attest that a cunning thief can obscure the
theft from highly competent senior employees, outside auditors and
competent and inquisitive boards of directors. As such, I can
hardly conceive of what additional efforts MPM could have taken to
prevent this theft. After it was discovered, Tim Scott and MPM
undertook every appropriate action as expeditiously as possible and
kept us fully and completely informed at every turn. For these
reasons, I repose great confidence in Tim Scott and his organization
and I will look forward to continuing my business relationship with
him and his enterprise in the years to come.

...I called several social services
departments in Lexington and The Hope Center, both "eviction
services" listed in the yellow pages, and two moving companies.
Fortunately, a friend suggested calling a property management
company, Modern Property Management, and they were terrific:
efficient, professional, and reasonably priced. They obtained
the Writ, made arrangements with Constable Hamlin, worked for hours
at the townhouse and changed the lock at the end of the process.
Although they were very familiar with Constable Hamlin because of
the properties they manage, they had never considered serving as an
eviction service. I am so grateful they agreed to help us.
They removed a mountain of junk that day, the photographs are
astonishing... I want to recommend Modern Property
Management... I think there are probably many other
"accidental landlords" in Fayette County; I have some friends who
could easily find themselves in my shoes next year.

My wife and I have been
clients of Modern Property Management for the past six years.
They manage rental property for us in Lexington, KY. We have
and will continue to recommend Modern Property Management to friends
or anyone inclined to need such services. They have been
diligent in solving any problems [and] keeping us informed on the
-- Terry S., Kentucky
I have been involved with Modern
Property Management (MPM) for over a year and during that time
period, I have been very impressed and pleased with the professional
management and rehabilitation skills of this company. I have
[spent] time with this company reviewing their skills as it relates
to clients, their property and the residents of the properties they
manage. They do an excellent job and have recommended [MPM] to
other clients as well as the Lexington Fayette Urban County
Government here in Lexington, where MPM has rehabilitated
residential units for them in the past. This company has
respect for their clients, their properties and the residents...
I would highly recommend this company to any of my clients and
-- Harold T., Kentucky
Tim, we have been pleased with the
management services that you have provided. Fortunately we
have not had much in the way of vacancies, but when they did occur
they seemed to have been released on a timely basis. Also, any
work that needs to be done on the properties has been handled
