OUR PROPERTY MANAGEMENT SERVICES
Holly Springs is home to individuals, couples, and families alike, and Block & Associates can help you attract and retain the ideal tenants for your rental property with expert property management services that include:
RENTAL CONTRACT COMPLIANCE
Our property management specialists handle all communications between owners and tenants, and our standard lease is written to ensure tenants are made aware of and adhere to the rules and regulations of your HOA to avoid fines. At the end of the lease, we will perform a walkthrough of your property with the tenant to assess any damages prior to refunding the balance remaining on the security deposit.
Our efficient response times to maintenance requests help to mitigate any damages to your structure or contents, and we have a trusted network of vendors that offer competitive rates. We make no profit from vendor charges and make every effort to troubleshoot issues with the tenant prior to hiring a professional.
Monthly rents are received by our office, and the net proceeds are transferred to the owners via electronic or postal mail. Our goal is to minimize requests from tenants for special payment requests or dates, and in the event that eviction proceedings are needed, we have negotiated a secured rate with a local, experienced real estate attorney.
Our property management rates are set at a highly competitive percentage of the monthly income on your rental home, with a minimum charge of $80 per month for modest properties. Other associated costs include:
- Vacant Management – Our management fees for a vacant property are a flat rate of $80 per month and include a monthly visit and inspection. Our services include the transfer of utilities into our name and arrangements for any maintenance items such as lawn care. The cost of these items will be deducted from your maintenance fund and may need to be replenished as needed.
- Renewals – Renewals are performed by your rental agent for a fee of $150, which includes an interim inspection of the property.
Monthly, itemized statements are provided to property owners and include copies of paid invoices for any expenses incurred during the reporting period. Yearly statements are issued to assist with tax preparation and can help you maximize your deductions. Additional accounting services include:
- Bill payments – Specified bills may be paid on behalf of the property owners by our agents at no extra charge, such as warranty renewals or repairs.
- Fee collection – Overdue rents, late fees, and other associated costs billed to the tenants are invoiced on a monthly basis.

A name like Holly Springs conjures images of cool waters steadily trickling from resilient, deep aquifers, springs that run past vibrant, age-old holly trees that have withstood storms and droughts, wars and depressions, and times of peace and prosperity. Indeed, this southern Wake Town originated at such a place, where 40-foot holly trees towered over freshwater springs. Some of the local centuries-old springs feed creeks and ponds to this day.
In colonial times, a small cluster of homes and businesses formed around the original “holly springs” in an area that once was a Tuscarora Indian hunting ground. The tiny community included a sawmill, cotton gin, a store and a house that was used as a school and as a church, one of the first four to join the Raleigh Baptist Association in 1805. The church disbanded when “several members became indulged in things of this world and became unfaithful to the church,” according to a church history. Some former members established another Baptist church a couple miles north at the intersection of two roads, one that went from Hillsborough to Smithfield and the other from Raleigh to the Cape Fear River and then on to Fayetteville. The crossroads was to become what is now downtown Holly Springs.
Nestled among Apex, Cary and Fuquay-Varina, all towns experiencing growth from the heavily populated Raleigh and RTP areas, Holly Springs is rapidly growing. The Town of less than 1,000 in 1990 grew to more than 9,000 in 2000. By 2006, the population was approximately 17,500.
While the Town welcomes growth, leaders also are determined to control the quality and placement of new developments while preserving open space and creating public areas. One of the recent focuses has been on encouraging commercial development in downtown Holly Springs.
Attractions and Activities
One of the annual highlights of community life is the Holly Fest celebration on the last Saturday in October. Festivities include free children’s rides, music, food, arts and crafts, a 5-K race, and fireworks.
Another annual event is the Kiwanis Club Haunted Schoolhouse in October. Volunteers decorate the Town’s community center, formerly an elementary school, and promise locals touring the facility plenty of Halloween scares. Young children can visit the facility during the early evening hours for a friendly tour, free face painting and hayrides.
Yet another event residents anticipate is Main Street Christmas, sponsored by the Town Chamber of Commerce. Residents visit Town Hall to deck the Christmas tree, enjoy hayrides around the downtown block and listen to local church carolers. A line of children also await the chance to sit on Santa Claus’ lap.
The Happy Holly Days Parade, a festive December parade that marches down Main Street, is a longtime local favorite. Annual entries include everything from local school marching bands and Town officials to unique groups, such as youth from the local gymnastic and martial arts schools.
The Holly Springs Library and Cultural Center is a center for arts, entertainment and special events. This center includes a library, performing arts theater, conference center, outdoor stage and grand lobby.
Be sure to check out the Calendar of Events.
From the past to the present, from the small-town atmosphere where people still know each other by name to the frequent, unique family-oriented activities, Holly Springs is a town that is continuing to grow not just in population and industry but also in heart.
Parks and Recreation
Not yet a decade old, the Town’s parks and recreation department is young. Still, a huge variety of programs at the Town parks provides opportunities for families to play together. The 46-acre Parrish Womble Park, much of which was formerly a tobacco farm, now includes baseball and soccer fields, playground equipment, a small fishing pond, a picnic shelter, an amphitheater, a paved walking trail, and areas for horseshoes and volleyball.
Ninety-acre Bass Lake Park opened in 2004 and features a lake stocked with an assortment of fish. Canoes and small boats, along with fishing gear, are available for rent. A 1.25-mile mulch trail along the lakeshore features scenic overlooks. The park also offers a retreat center for meetings and special events. Park-sponsored outings, such as owl prowls, single-mingle canoe paddles and family moonlight canoe trips, draw in locals regularly.

The Parks and Recreation department also has a multitude of athletic programs which offer organized sports opportunities for youth and adults.
