Our Top-Tier, Premium Property Management Services
Your property’s manager will coordinate all communication between you and your tenant, so you don’t have to. Our standard lease agreement requires tenants to adhere to all rules and regulations set by your homeowners association. Our team works directly with your HOA to confirm your property follows neighborhood standards to avoid the possibility of fines. A third-party independent inspector conducts move-in and move-out, and our office will assess issues and fines, where appropriate. We then disperse security deposits with damage itemization lists in accordance with North Carolina legal requirements.
We offer several options for tenants to submit maintenance requests, including phone, email, our online service request form, or a 24/7 after-hours emergency service. All requests are handled promptly by a vetted and insured preferred vendor, at discounted rates. Block & Associates does not receive a percentage of any vendor charges. Additionally, our team will troubleshoot maintenance issues with your tenants, before calling for service, to help avoid the need for maintenance service.
Our office provides monthly statements, paid invoices, and year-end statements to help your tax preparer maximize your deductions. We are also able to handle the payment of some bills for you, at no extra charge, including warranty renewals and repair invoices. Tenants are invoiced monthly for past-due rent, late fees, or any other outstanding charges.
Your net rent will be distributed to you via monthly deposits or mailings, depending on your preference. We will also minimize special tenant requests regarding payments or payment dates. All eviction proceedings are filed monthly at a secured, negotiated rate with a local real estate attorney that specializes in the representation of landlords. Our team also reports any unpaid debts to credit bureaus to help collect all monies owed to you by your tenant.
Our rates are based on a competitive percentage of the monthly rent (or $80.00 minimum/month) to provide full-service management of your investment property. If your property is vacant at the end of a lease, we will continue management for a flat fee of $80 per month. Vacant property management services include utility connections made in our name, management of property maintenance like lawn care, HOA requests, etc. We will also perform a monthly inspection of your vacant property, for additional oversight. Annual lease renewals on managed properties are billed at a flat $150 charge, which includes an interim inspection.

Garner got its start with the coming of the railroad through the area beginning in 1847. In that year, after a tie-breaker vote by the Speaker of the State House of Representatives, what is now Garner was chosen as the location of a station of the North Carolina Railroad between Goldsboro and Charlotte. “Garner’s Station” was established with the construction of a post office in 1878 and the Town of Garner’s Station incorporated in 1883.
There are several legends as to how Garner got its name. One story has it that Thomas Bingham named the town. Bingham is said to have combined a general store with handling the mail. Since Webster’s defines “garner” as a “granary,” hence figuratively, a “store,” he named the town “Garner.”
The late Parker Rand believed that Garner was named for a family that lived in the area and later moved to Texas. Others believe the town was named by Henry Fort, a black cabinetmaker and carpenter who owned some land along the railroad after the Civil War. William S. Powell stated that Garner was named for its founder, H.C. Garner. An article in The State also named H.C. Garner as its founder, but not much information has been found about the man.
Farming was the chief source of income for the early settlers of Garner and nearby areas, with cotton the principal crop. Before the turn of the century, some small businesses were beginning to be developed. The first business in Garner is said to have been a wood shop owned by Henry Fort. Fort was said to have been a fine cabinetmaker and carpenter, making wardrobes, bureaus, and other pieces of wood furniture still being used by some Garner residents today. One of the first grocery stores in town was owned by Thomas Bennett. Other early businesses included a mercantile business owned by H.D. Rand, a drug store operated by George Montague, and several general stores operated by people such as C.H. Dupree, Jr., R. Garner, J.B. Hobby, and J.R. Williams. In addition to general stores and cotton gins in the area, other businesses such as blacksmith, repair shops, barber shops, livery stables, and boarding houses existed. The first bank was established in Garner in 1910. H.D. Rand was president and J.A. Weathers was the cashier. In 1912, telephone service came to Garner. In a short while, there were as many as 10 subscribers. The first switchboard was operated in the home of Vera Jones. The telephone service closed after two years and then returned in 1924. The business and residential life of Garner continued to grow steadily throughout the years, with more rapid growth in recent times.
With the increased population and residential growth, Garner has burgeoned in business and service establishments, both within the corporation limits and the extraterritorial jurisdiction of the town. Town officials predict the town will continue to grow at a rapid rate.
