Tiger Lily Realty, Inc.
is an Ohio-based full-service real estate brokerage that specializes in the rental and management of quality single-family home rentals in the contiguous counties surrounding and including Summit County. The cities where we currently have rentals are Akron, Barberton, Brimfield, Copley, Kent, Ravenna, and Rootstown. Tiger Lily manages these homes for independent homeowners. Our rental listings can vary month-to-month depending on vacancies and new clients.
The broker, Tricia Hiss, enjoys providing quality rentals to qualified tenants.
Working with Other Brokerages
IF YOU ARE USING A REAL ESTATE AGENT TO FIND YOU A RENTAL: Tiger Lily only works with other brokerages on rents equal to or above $1800/month. If you are a tenant looking for rentals consider offering your agent a commission as a "buyer's agent" if he/she secures a rental for you. In this way the agent is assured of being paid for his/her work. That will open up far more rentals for you to view, including mom and pop rentals.
AGENTS: When Tiger Lily Realty lists property for rent it also cooperates with, and offers compensation to, other brokerages that represent Tenants under “Buyer’s Agency” or “Subagency”. Tiger Lily Realty does reserve the right, in some instances, to vary the compensation it offers to other brokerages depending on whether we are just “renting” or “managing and renting” the property. As a Rental Unit Owner, you should understand that Tiger Lily Realty can share our commission with a brokerage representing the Tenant in two circumstances: under Subagency, where the Tenant’s agent is representing the Rental Owner’s interests, and under “Buyer’s Agency” where the Tenant has contracted with an agent from another brokerage, which will be representing the Tenant’s interests, and Tiger Lily Realty will be representing your, our client’s, interests. Tiger Lily only works with other brokerages on rents above $1800/month.

Taking interior and exterior photos, advertising, replying to emails and phone calls, showing the property and processing the applications takes your time.
Tiger Lily can rent your home for you and then you can sit back and collect the rent each month directly. You have the final say on which application is accepted based on our background application process.
Let’s discuss a program for you, whether it is just advertising your property, showing your property, or advertising, showing, processing the applications, and moving the tenant in!
Let Tiger Lily help you avoid the first-time landlord pitfalls. We can help you with local, state, and federal requirements necessary to be a landlord.
Avoid costly mistakes by having us with you at the beginning. We can work with you on an hour by hour consult, or you can have us do the initial renting of your home.
Tiger Lily has managed homes since 1999. We will make an appointment with you to view your rental prior to any contract being signed.
We highly suggest you use Tiger Lily’s referral brokerage to purchase rentals so that we can advise on whether the home will provide you the best rental income vs repairs.
Remember if your sales agent’s brokerage is not also in the property management business, then be cautious of the homes you are being shown for rentals. We can advise you on municipal, state, and federal requirements and registrations that may raise your post sale repairs.
