    from my experience, you have to be persistent. send the letter, give the property manager a week or so and then call and follow up, setup a meeting with them and go in and get the info on the properties.

    Take the initiative. Ask them when you two can get together and discuss their needs. If you offer other services, that helps a lot. My company offers "grounds maintenance", which is a fancy way of saying we empty trash cans, blow off grills, ect... We also have a lot of different reports we email around. The best one we found is a dicrepency report that we turn in after every visit. It gives the management company an idea of things that they can do to improve the community. Management companies are notoriously inefficient and really need to be led by than the hand.
