Real Estate Gladiators has been first rate to work with overall. They have been very responsive to every issue that we have had but my biggest complaint is that it is almost impossible to actually speak with someone. In our earlier interactions with the company, someone would actually call us back when we left a message or occasionally even answer the phone. That rarely happens now. The portal works well but sometimes it is really helpful to actually go over a situation with someone in person. It is very difficult to get a call back when you leave a message. We have been working with them since about 2014 and with the exception of this issue, have been very satisfied. .

I was a bit anxious looking for a property management group to represent my rental home. Lots of mixed reviews out there. My realtor recommended Real Estate Gladiators. Home run! I've found them to be the most professional and responsive which has set me at ease so I don't worry about the house. I think you'll find the same.

I have shared this before but I love sharing it again. Tracy Minich, owner of Real Estate Gladiators in Monroe, and her staff once again have come through for me. After four years and multiple real estate transactions with Tracy I will be the owner of a condo in downtown Kirkland and moving in at the end of this month. It is wonderful to have people working for you that you can trust completely and know they are looking out for your best interests. Therese Johns P.S. .......and that is not all. Tracy has been my property manager long before I moved to Kirkland. She and her staff are Top-notch in all respects. As one of her staff once said, "We don't own your homes, we just act as if we do." I like that attitude.

We contracted with Real Estate Gladiators (REG) to manage our condo after a not-so-stellar experience with a national brand. We are impressed with how responsive REG is in keeping us informed and managing our tenant. They were also very accommodating as we moved our condo to a LLC and redid the contract etc., Highly recommend REG. Update: After almost 15 months with them now, we are still happy with their service.

They took excellent care of me in anything that I needed in my new house. The lease was fast, they took the time to go through it with me, they responded the day before Thanksgiving when my oven started acting up and even called me when the 5th rolled around and I had forgotten to pay my rent. This is an amazing company that actually cares about the needs of it's tenants.

They always put your mind at ease, I had some problems with another Property Management Company I had been dealing with, I never could get any answers, I didn’t know where to turn, my grandsons dad told me about Tracy at Real Estate Gladiators, I talked to Tracy and explained everything to her, she made me feel so relieved, I could feel the stress leaving me, she said we will take care of everything, don’t worry and they did. Tracy and Katherine have been a blessing to me, they keep me up to date with my financial transactions, each month. When your tenants lease is up, they will ask you how you want to go as far as renewing the lease, etc., they will take care of it for you. I’m really pleased with Real Estate Gladiators. Thank you, Tracy and Katherine, I can’t thank you enough, you both have been outstanding and done an awesome job.
