Smart Choice Properties, LLC and its affiliates Smart Choice Homes, LLC and WTBS Enterprises, LLC own over 450 well-maintained apartments and houses in several locations throughout Springfield.  We have operated reasonably priced small apartment communities and rental houses in Springfield since 1986.

We specialize in small apartment communities ranging from two to ninety-three units.  Our locations are in single-family residential areas as opposed to being mixed in with huge apartment complexes with hundreds of units.  We own more small apartment communities in Springfield than any other landlord in town.

The vast majority of small apartment buildings are owned by part time investors who often are not able to manage their properties in a professional manner.  Although each of our communities is small, we pride ourselves on having professional management of our properties.  We have regular office hours Monday through Saturday.  We also staff a responsive and experienced full-time maintenance staff.  We have an emergency cell phone, which is carried by one of our maintenance staff 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.

We use an extensive checklist when preparing apartments for rental to insure everything is clean and in working order.  Our maintenance supervisor performs a final inspection of each unit.  We provide a tenant satisfaction survey to be completed upon move in.  We review each and every one and provide copies to our staff so their performance on each unit can be evaluated.
As a preventative measure, we perform a quarterly pest control in every apartment.  All locations have off street parking and we have laundry facilities at most.

Our primary goal is to provide a nice environment in the building in which you live.  To reduce the possibility of tenant disturbances, all applicants are thoroughly screened for criminal background and previous rental history.  To maintain a nice environment, we have a proactive plan in place to deal with any disruptive behavior by other tenants or their guests.

If you choose to rent from us, we will work diligently to exceed your expectations. If looking for a rental house, please call or
E-mail us for our current availability. Check out our apartments at the following locations:
