I have nothing but positive comments for Property Boulevard. We use the online package from the main Oakland and Sacramento offices, as well as from multiple sites and home-offices. Property Boulevard is efficient in every way – I cannot believe how much money and time it is saving us. The support team quickly responds to any challenge like magic. I enthusiastically recommend Property Boulevard.
Certainly, good package that comes with great support. I like the simplicity, yet powerful, of each module.

After an exhaustive search, we selected Property Blvd as a SAS solution and it has been a great fit for our business. The SAS offering provided back-up and software upgrades done by the vendor and removed that overhead from our small business.
Overall, the software handles the Property/Tenant relationship with great reports and easy to use features. The accounting solution allows for integration with the property/tenant/vendor solution at the client's disposition, which is great. Superb support!
Great software package.
If you manage commercial portfolio, Property Boulevard is the only tool you need and must have.

This program is like going back in time, it is like installing a dial-up modem and selling it as high-speed internet. It is horrible, the format is antiquated and the ease of use is absolutely horrible. However, the absolute worst part of this program is the customer service. Apparently, there is only one person who can help you with any sort of issues and he is probably the rudest person I've ever spoken with. He talks down to you, he is condescending and inserts his little snarky comments any time he can. Half of the time he does not actually even solve the problem, just basically tells you to live with the malfunction and carry on. I am a relatively calm person but anytime I have to speak with him, my blood pressure rises. I honestly cannot stand him and it is appalling how there is NO ONE ELSE to talk to over there.

The customer service people are very knowledgeable, nice and respond quickly. Management reports are fabulous.
Nothing. It is a great package, but requires time to appreciate all of the features.
Do not hesitate to call the support line. It is most helpful.
Paula from Kramer Enterprises
Inputting information is quick and easy. The reports are not glitzy looking, but they provide the information that is needed.
I wish there were more flexibility in the system. Also, although the person who does the training is very good, he is only available on west coast time. I wish they would prepare training materials that could be viewed at any time.
I found Software Advice to be very helpful. They narrowed a very wide field of vendors down to a handful, making it much easier for us to choose the best one for us.

I have been utilizing Property Boulevard for over five years now because their value just can't be beat. Continuous upgrades, online support, ease of use, and customized workflows make this product peerless. CAM reconciliation, schedule of increases, and multiple leases for each tenant make it perfect for my portfolio.
There isn't much that I dislike about this product. If anything, the only thing I dislike is that when my internet is down I cannot connect to Property Boulevard. They’ve offered the on-premises package, but I still prefer the online service because I can access it from anywhere.
Take the trial, and see for yourself! It is great software, and you will learn to appreciate it as you utilize it! Also, use the online training they offer.

It's powerful and easy to use. Business and accounting rules are set once, and the daily transactions are fully automated.
Any outgoing check must be linked to a vendor, employee, or tenant. There is no check on the fly.
Request a live demo during which the important workflows can be demonstrated.

There's very little that I like about Property Boulevard.
They were incapable of migrating our data. We had to enter everything by hand, and then they told us the format they gave us would not work.
Proceed with caution. Although they promised to assist with data migration, they tried and could not work with our Management Plus software. This delayed our conversion by six months.

Since 2007, we have used Property Boulevard as our management software at Marian Realty, Inc. The ease of conversion and their quick ability to design reports that copied our existing processes were of great benefit. I am also very impressed by the personal support of their staff. There are no answering machines; human voices are there for you.
In the seven years we have used Property Boulevard, we really have had no negative comments; we are totally satisfied. And nowadays, that's a very scarce opinion to have in our current business environment.
Contact Property Boulevard and let them provide you with references of other clients they have served.
Bill from L2 Partners
It's versatile and can do anything that you need to do. There is always a workaround.
It's a tough system to really get to grips with, and on some computers it is very slow.
Try out three or four before you make your decision.
