5 Best Property Managers in Memphis

5 Best Property Managers in Memphis

Whether you’re a current rental property owner in Memphis or are you wanting to add this market to your portfolio, you might be looking for the best property management companies in Memphis, Tennessee.

After all, a trustworthy property manager can help protect your investment and best serve your tenants.

Property management is a full-time job that requires 24/7 availability, vendor networks, and close proximity to the property in order to be successful.

Many landlords, especially ones who live out-of-state, don’t have this type of availability – and that’s okay! That’s exactly what property managers are for.

But choosing the right property manager makes all the difference between a positive and negative renting experience, and it comes down to several factors. Some are objective, like the quality of service, but others come down to personal preference, such as size and specialties.

In this post, we’re breaking down some of the best property management companies in Memphis, Tennessee. We include pricing, ratings, services, and more so that you can find the very best PM for you.


Evernest was established in 2008 at the beginning of the housing crisis. Our founder, Matthew Whitaker, was left with 30 investment properties that he intended to sell but was unable to do so when the residential housing market crashed. So he began a search to locate a property manager who shared his management philosophies and ideals. Later on in the year, Matthew launched Evernest and we officially opened for business.

In the last 15 years, Evernest has grown from a team of 3 to a nationwide company with over 400 team members. Evernest is based in Birmingham and operates in 33 real estate markets across the US, including Memphis, Tennessee.

With Evernest you’ll receive in-house maintenance, no fees for cancellation, and a waived lease fee if a resident leaves within the first year. Evernest guarantees a qualified renter for your unit within 21 days, or your first two months of management are free. A 24-hour hotline is available to residents as well.
