About Us – Who we are and what we do

Barr Residential & Development, LLC is a property management company, located in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. BRD was formed to provide owners with a management company that is dedicated to increasing cash flow, improve resident satisfaction, and maximizing the value of assets through a “Service First” approach to property management. BRD is exclusively a fee management company, positioned for expansion, drawing from a dedicated pool of property management professionals. Accordingly, we recognize our success is totally dependent on the quality of service we provide our clients. Our “Service First” approach has enabled us to successfully turn around thousands of units of distressed apartment communities with little or no new capital. Collectively, with over 35 years of experience, we know that positive results follow only when a high value is placed on customer satisfaction.

In order to maintain customer satisfaction, we rely heavily on people and technology. We will never accept anything less than the highest level of quality at every position, from the executive suite, to district manager, to site manager, to resident services coordinator, to groundskeeper. Equally important is our belief that technology, properly used, can reduce the distance between the owner and management agent, and executive management and the site personnel.

Maintenance and Management of Physical Asset: We make regular site visits to your property that include a review of property repair policies and procedures, employee performance, training needs, replacement and capital needs, building/grounds maintenance, contract performance, leasing activities, market analysis, resident communication, retention, satisfaction and services, curb appeal, review of work order scheduling, and preventive maintenance scheduling. Monthly sessions will be held with the site staff to analyze on going expenses through the art of “Process Review for Improvement.
