In 2008, founders Alex and Benolyn Craig were not satisfied with the Property Management solutions offered in Memphis for management of their growing portfolio.
The lack of communication, questionable maintenance bills, poor property marketing and tenant underwriting, lack of empathy for their properties and overall poor customer service by their property managers made the decision to start their own Property Management Company an easy one. It was not hard to establish basic principles to start their company as they simply learned what a bad property manager does and how it affects your real estate portfolio. Utilizing those experiences along with Alex’s degree in Education and corporate experience as Client Relations and Marketing Communications Manager for a worldwide manufacture and Benolyn’s background with an Accounting Degree and working professionally for a large actuary firm, helped build the foundation of the company.
CB Properties originally started out as Coldwell Banker Property Management in Bartlett, TN as a in-house management for the local branch of the Nationwide Coldwell Banker Real Estate brand. It did not take long for both Alex and Benolyn to make a name for themselves on a Nationwide platform to start buying, selling and proving excellent Property Management for their clients. In 2010, they branched off on their own and formed CB Properties.
