How can we offer a comfortable experience for Owners?
One of the most valuable services we offer our clients is an effective screening process for prospective tenants. To be successful in real estate, it is invaluable to connect with renters or leasing clients who will offer you stability and reliability. We screen out those who don't meet our mutually agreed upon standards, saving you time and money.
Zenith will recommend and coordinate the proper amount of “rent ready” work to comply with Tenant Law and procure the best rental rate. We will make suggestions that keep costs to a minimum. We have rental properties of our own and are very sensitive to out of pocket costs.
At Zenith we are expert marketers. We will make sure your home has the necessary exposure by using top sites and services. There is a strategy we use to determine the highest rental rate for your home while also ensuring the least amount of vacancy time. We ceaselessly evaluate the marketing data and adjust variables until your home has been rented.
Leasing is an important aspect of management. Our Leasing Agents personally show every unit. Many other Property Management companies give keys to prospective tenants to view homes unaccompanied. Rest assured, all of our leasing agents are trained and knowledgeable about your home. They are trained to prescreen interested parties before every tour. Only qualified parties will see your unit. Your home will be shown until we have a qualified tenant that has paid a deposit.
We screen many phone calls and walk-ins who maybe prospective tenants each day. If someone is qualified based on our stringent screening criteria, we send their application to a specialized screening company. Many applicants do not qualify after reviewing the background report. We only remove the marketing when a qualified applicant has placed a non-refundable deposit and is committed to renting your home.
We have developed ongoing management systems for the complicated task of ongoing rental management. There are many facets within ongoing management that the general public is not aware of. There are state and local laws that touch every area of managing rental homes. As professionals we stay abreast of the new laws and comply with all laws to protect our clients. We are passionate about our business. We enjoy being an active member in several property management associations. Training and ongoing education is part of our Zenith culture.
Through continued training we learn new and more efficient ways to do the same management functions thereby enabling our staff to provide a better service for our Owners and tenants. Our ultimate goal is to seamlessly handle rent collection, late notices, fees, inspection issues, turnovers, renewals, maintenance and any other ongoing management issues so that you, the owner can enjoy the peace of mind knowing that your asset is in the best of hands.

Washougal Area Information
Washougal was officially incorporated on December 4, 1908. Its Mount Pleasant Grange Hall is the oldest continually used grange hall in Washington.
This small community is located on the Washington side of the Columbia River, with its lowlands and famous prairie situated on the west entrance to the scenic Columbia River Gorge. Motorists who approach Washougal from the west on the Lewis & Clark Highway can see Mount Hood rising above the Cascade Mountains framed by the columnar cliffs that signal the gateway of the Gorge. It is home to Excelsior High School and Washougal High School.
It can be accurately stated that Washougal is the "crossroads to discovery" in the Pacific Northwest. Shortly after Capt. Robert Gray, a Boston fur trader, entered the mouth of the Columbia River in May 1792, the famed British explorer George Vancouver traveled to the region to verify Gray's discovery. In October 1792, Vancouver directed a young Lieutenant named William Broughton to lead a party of men in a long boat up the Columbia to explore its head waters. Broughton came as far as present day Washougal and landed near the east end of Reed Island. He named Mount Hood after a British admiral and Point Vancouver after his commanding officer. Broughton incorrectly assumed the head waters of the Columbia originated from Mount Hood. In reality, the river originates some 1,000 miles to the north and east in Canada, but it would be 18 years later before the entire river was charted by another famed British explorer named David Thompson.
