We are a smaller, well-established property management company in Grand Rapids that also has duplexes and single family homes in Holt & Lansing. We started the business in Holt before moving it to GR, where it really took off, then purchased more properties in Lansing. We are seeking self-motivated part time handyman / maintenance techs to help with occasional small repairs and to help refurbish vacant Lansing properties. We have a full maintenance staff for our GR properties which tend to stay full, so we don't always have someone available to run to Lansing for small repairs.
We've just purchased 10 more Lansing properties that need work, so we are looking to hire one or more part timers to help out when needed. This is an ideal position for someone who lives in the Lansing area to work as a 2nd job, someone who is waiting for Spring/Summer to get back to work at their outdoor/construction-type job, or for anyone wanting to make some extra income. It's not ideal for someone looking for full time work in the Lansing area, as we don't have enough work there to support a full time position. However we realize not everyone may have the experience to make repairs or be comfortable interacting with tenants, maybe someone just wants to work in vacant units painting for an hourly wage or do trash-outs, so we're open to hiring with more than one person.
This would be a 1099 position, meaning you wouldn't be punching a clock & we wouldn't take taxes out of your checks. Depending on the particular job, it could be hourly or a job that we'd ask you for a set price on before you commit to it.
Examples of work that we need done at this time:
*Painting several vacant homes, making drywall repairs, lock changes, carpet cleaning, minor repairs & yard clean-ups to prepare the homes for new move ins
*Occupied duplex that needs the sink sprayer replaced as it's stuck in the spray position with no water coming from the faucet, furance filter change and repair to leaky fridge
*Lock change at a vacant apartment that also needs flea bombs, returning after bombs have had time to be effective, to do a trash-out that will require a couple of dump runs. Once that's complete we'll need to start preparing the property for a new move in, which likely will include painting, carpet cleaning and small repairs. We also need help refurbishing 4 other vacant homes in Lansing.
You must have reliable transportation, your own tools, references and the ability to be productive while working unsupervised. You should live in the Lansing area. We are an equal opportunity housing provider meaning all applicants who meet our rental requirements (including credit, rental history, income verification & background check) are welcome & are treated equally in accordance with Federal, State and Local Fair Housing laws; so you must be comfortable working with a variety of tenants. Since you may be working in occupied homes at times, a basic background check is necessary, at no cost to you.
