Ready to go the extra mile
Marathon Management has been going the extra mile since 2005 as a full-service property management company in the greater Memphis area. We currently manage over 1,500 residential properties, as well as an additional 250 commercial leases in partnership with our sister company, Gregory Realty. With our experienced team, we work both in the office and in the field to ensure that operations run smoothly.
The need for a rental management company was realized when its founders, Hulet and Jackie Gregory, needed a more efficient way to oversee the rental properties that they and their investors owned. The name of the company came from one of Hulet’s favorite activities— long-distance running. The name is fitting, because much like long-distance running, it takes time, effort, and dedication to reach your goals. And by embodying those qualities, we at Marathon Management seek to help you reach all your investment goals by providing first-rate service.
Serving as an intermediary between property owners and residents, we are responsible for tenant placement, collections, maintenance, paying operating expenses as needed, as well as overseeing vacant properties. Since we handle all the steps within the rental process, this allows our clients to have limited involvement while collecting cash flow from their investment properties. Our goal is to provide property owners comprehensive services to meet their specific needs, while providing quality homes for our valued residents!
We know that time is of the essence, which is why we offer quick and easy payment options to our tenants. Tenants can pay with either direct online payments, in-office payments, or our new RentMoney program. This program allows tenants to pay their rent at the closest Walmart, Kroger, or Ace Cash Express.
In the years since its inception, Marathon Management has grown into a full-scale property management operation. The staff oversees every facet of the management process. Maintenance, collections, and tenant placement happen in-house, while a team of full-time project managers oversee our properties in the field.
The keystone element of a successful rental operation is having a reliable tenant. Our tenant screening process is backed by a team of licensed realtors and leasing consultants, who are all dedicated to finding the right fit for your property.
Our knowledge and experience in the property management industry enables us to keep your investment profitable. Whether you are new to property investments, or you have been around the block multiple times before, we are ready to assist you with your property management needs. We offer our services, industry insights, and even rental comps of potential investments if you wish to expand your portfolio in the future!
