“Binkley Jr. Real Estate – what can we say – they are fantastic! We have been dealing with them for over ten years, since we bought our property in PA. We live in NY, so having someone like Binkley who has always been reliable, honest, trustworthy, and helpful in all situations has always given us peace of mind and no worries at all. The office staff has always been considerate, pleasant, and always eager to help. Without Binkley, we may not have been able to handle our property all these years.”

“We have been using Binkley Jr. Real Estate to manage a property we own for about 8 years. We were never interested in being landlords but found ourselves with no choice. We have never regretted our decision to use Craig and staff to manage the rentals; in fact, just the opposite. We have never had a problem with tenants. Prospective tenants are thoroughly screened before renting. Maintenance problems are handled quickly and we do not need to get involved unless repairs are extensive and/or need our approval. Binkley Jr. Real Estate contracts with good, reliable, cost effective professionals. Craig and staff are very polite, friendly, and professional, and we feel we get maximum value for fees paid.”

“There are several things that I appreciate about working with Binkley Jr. Real Estate. First, I am glad to have someone with experience screening prospective tenants. Second, I appreciate that the tenant calls them when there is problem rather than calling me any time of the day/night or weekend. Third, I am glad that I can depend on Binkley to deal with any tenants who would need to be evicted. I appreciate working with Binkley from beginning to end.”

“Craig has managed my property for well over five years. He has made me aware of the city codes that are applicable to my property to ensure that everything is in compliance. He routinely checks up on my property without me asking; I really appreciate that because I do not live in the City of Reading. All I can say is that Craig and his team are great, I wish I had used their services sooner.”

“I had the apartment house for over 20 years. The last several were the worst with collecting rents. My son told me that I needed to get someone to manage it for me and recommended Binkley. Since he has been managing the apartments I have my rents every month. If the tenants have a complaint they call him. They leave me know so I can decide if they should take care of the repair or if I want to get the guy I have for my other apartments that are in the house I live in. At the end of the year he has a statement for tax purposes for me which makes less work for me. I am so glad that my son suggested that I get a manager for my apartment building and that I decided to go with Binkley. I sure have less headaches and feel more secure since I did it. Thank you Binkley Jr. Real Estate.”

“I became interested in acquiring a rental property in the Reading area and first contacted Binkley Jr. Real Estate early in 2002, when I bought the first of the 3 properties Craig has helped me acquire. Since then he has managed on my behalf every aspect of these properties: beginning with the showing, buying and settlement procedures; dealing with contractors that perform redecorating, remodeling and routine maintenance; finding qualified tenants; and collecting rents.Very importantly, to me, he and his staff have always kept our tenants satisfied by immediately addressing any issues they have had and, when necessary, informing me of the problem and suggesting an appropriate solution that is fair and practical. In addition, Craig inspects every property twice a year to insure they are being maintained by the tenant in a satisfactory manner.As I talk with other landlords, past and present, the ones who have been most frustrated by bad tenants are those who manage their own properties… I heartily encourage anyone who currently owns or is interested in owning rentals to engage a professional property manager to minimize aggravation and wasted time.I can testify that Binkley Jr. Real Estate, managing over 400 units for two generations, has done very well by me.”
“I have been working with Binkley Jr. Real Estate since 2006. Craig Binkley and his team have always been extremely professional when managing my property. They have always responded quickly and effectively to any needs associated with my rentals. They NEVER miss a call or email and always follow up promptly. Craig and his team are extremely knowledgeable about the City of Reading, and they are always helpful in helping to navigate its bureaucracy whenever necessary. They definitely make being a landlord much easier.”
“I have had my rental properties for over 25 years. After some initially good tenants, I suffered a long run of poorly chosen and vetted tenants that were sometimes slow to pay, and other times totally delinquent. After dealing with a horrifically bad tenant whom I could not comfortably evict for fear of them further damaging my property, I was referred to Binkley Jr. Real Estate. After over a year working with them, the “headache” of handling my rental property is now not even part of my thoughts from month to month.”
“Binkley Jr. Real Estate has been my property manager for 21 years. I have found them to be very competent. During that time many property management companies have come and gone. Binkley Jr. Is still here. Surely performance is the reason.”
“To all who are thinking of using Binkley Jr. Real Estate. My brother and I started using Craig something over 10 Years ago. When we started, we had a single unit that Craig managed for us. Over the years the number of units that the Binkley organization has under management has grown to six. When there have been problems with the units as sometimes happens, (things like a leaking water heater or a malfunctioning dish washer). We get a call with a solution and a cost or idea to get it fixed. Nothing is done without our approval and we know that the units are being well taken care of. When one of the units goes vacant, Craig knows the people who can get it ready to be put back on the market in the shortest amount of time possible. When we started to expand our holdings, Craig picked out units that he thought we would like. More importantly, units that could be easily rented and would net a good return for us. He handled the purchase of the units and the transactions were quick and easy.The tenants that the Binkley organization bring to us are qualified and have all been good tenants. We get separate checks for each unit every month which makes it very easy to track the income. At the end of the year we get an easy to understand one page summary for each unit for our taxes. We would and do highly recommend Binkley Jr. Real Estate for the purchase and management of your properties.”
