Tampa Bay Rental & Property Management Services


About Us

Established in 1986, Home Locators was founded on the belief that we aren’t just marketing rental properties; we are helping people to find a home.  That place where you spend the best part of your day and find shelter from the busy world.  We provide a full range of innovative Property Management services to the owners of residential rental properties throughout the Tampa Bay area including all of Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties.  Home Locators leases, manages and sells income properties to real estate investors, both large and small.  We have owned and managed rental property for decades. We have managed thousands of homes over the past 30 years.  Our experience will help you meet your real estate investment goals and maximize your returns.


Our Story

In working with our Tampa property management company, you will find we aren’t your typical real estate firm.  Our story includes a core group of dedicated professionals who work closely together to deliver exceptional service and value to our Landlord partners.  Most of our employees have been with the company for a decade or longer.  We have a fun and professional office culture that extends to our Residents and Landlords.  We take the time to know each of our clients and demonstrate through our actions that they are more than just a number; they are a part of our family.  We are always looking to meet great new people and invite them to join the Home Locators family as a Resident or as a Landlord.  It’s not just About Us; our story and success would never have been possible without the thousands of individual people who have shared in this journey over the decades.  We are grateful for the friendship and loyalty of our clients and we never forget that they made us who we are today (and tomorrow).
