What is the best way to meet property managers in my area?
I don't know about the best, but go to your local REIA and network/ask for referrals, ask for referrals here on BiggerPockets, look on Craigslist/Angie's List, maybe check out http://www.irem.org, etc.
Search engine is the best place to find property managers or property management firm. Just type in property management followed by your location.
A number of sites will show up. You will be able to find genuine companies in the top results only. Read the reviews and customer experience. Contact the firm, arrange an interview, discuss about your property and needs, see what services they provide and then finally choose the company that's ideal for you.
Jacob here are a couple of suggestions:
1. Contact www.NARPM.org This is a group of National Property Managers.
2. Go to the www.PMI.com website for a list of those in your area.
3. Talk to respected Realtors in your area for qualified managers. You want to select someone who is bonded and has all the required licenses.
Yelp is a useful tool for screening PM Candidates once you have them. Just keep in mind that sometimes tenants get upset over things when the PM company is doing the right thing or they try to blackmail the PM company into giving them their full deposit back even if it's not warranted. Check for owners reviews over tenants.
@Jacob Casarez as stated above google is a efficient way and also attending local REIA's meetups. At those meetups you will be able to get good referrals
