The Property Guard System
Our approach is simple yet innovative. We believe in casting a wide net and quickly screening out unnecessary data.
Custom built for performance
Searching all major listing sites
We built our custom listing-finding engine from the ground up for one purpose: to cover a lot of ground, fast.
Our engine was built for speed, but also adaptable. We are always adding additional sites to keep pace with the rapidly changing marketplace.
It's about making decisions quickly
After hundreds of thousands of validated data points, we've made our algorithm extremely good at determining who lists at your property.
Over a dozen factors (and growing) to leave no stone unturned
Our system digests the large dataset returned from the engine and returns actionable data for you to view.
Thinking about users
Data is only valuable if you can act on it: so we give you a dashboard to review everything and quickly make decisions and see trends.

Property Guard was created for property managers, by property managers. Whether former regional managers or former software property developers, we know how busy the average manager is and how many different software platforms they have to use.
We ended up asking ourselves the question:
our residents have technology for short-term rentals: shouldn't we?
Our leadership and advisory team represents decades of property management and software development experience.
Over a decade of experience helping to build SaaS applications and platforms. Adam has previous experience working in property management software for a leading startup in the space. Prior to his work in products he was a licensed professional engineer.
Over a decade of experience in property operations. Matt has previous experience working for some of the largest management firms in the North America in various roles and has lead the implementation of streamlined processes and automation to drive revenue growth.
Over a decade of experience in software engineering at companies like IBM and software agencies like Dialexa. Luke has led teams that built and delivered some of the most complex software on the planet.
Over a decade of experience in B2B and enterprise sales. Bob has led teams and strategic initiatives centered around client needs: expanding service lines and features based on a user-centric approach.
We have experienced steady growth in clients, listings, and validations throughout the previous three years.
We discovered no one had the features we needed or expected, so we began planning what would become Property Guard.
We built an engine and released our first version. By the end of our first year we had about 10 clients.
We continued to add to our validation algorithm (and our client list). By end of year we had processed over 75,000 listings.
We released a new engine and validation algorithm. Our client list grew well past 100 and we added our first partners.
We expect to pass 1,000 clients and 1,000,000 listings as we continue to grow and serve our clients.
Frequently Asked Questions
Here are the top questions from our online support system.
How does it 'really' work?
We pair years of improvements in searching algorithms, built into our custom engine, with thousands of hours of experienced quality control employees who know all of the games and techniques that hosts try to play.
How can I tell when I need to act?
Within 24 hours you will receive a notification. Every week we will email you the activity at the property (including listings that are not yours) so you always know where you stand.
Do you do anything proactive?
Yes! We've found that the best way to reduce all of the unwanted headaches associated with STR violations is to provide you with ample digital and ready-to-print materials.
What about odd property boundaries?
We are able to feed your exact property outline into our system (not just a rectangle or circle approximation). From 10,000+ home HOAs to skyscrapers to everything in between, we can work with what you have.
Can you get me an actual address?
We check from 8-15 different aspects of every listing and compare that with our growing portfolio of your property - after we are set up we have the tools to find and identify most violators.
What about fake names?
We have a series of progressively unique and sophisticated ways to find these violators. Ask us about our new 100% identification guarantee.
Want to know all of our best practices?
After years of iterations on thousands of properties, we created a white paper that we'd like you to have.

WRMC is a full-service, boutique association management company based in Dallas, Texas that specializes in the management of luxury high-rise condominiums in downtown Austin, Dallas, Denver, Fort Worth and San Antonio.
At WRMC, safety is the biggest concern for their clients and with numerous major events throughout the state of Texas each year such as ACL Music Festival, SXSW, and various professional and collegiate sporting events, not including the usual out of town travelers visiting each weekend. It became quite cumbersome to maintain property rules and restrictions enforced at their desirable high-rise condominiums for noise control, property damage, and parking. In order to stay compliant with community rules and be proactive in their management approach they needed a solution that would monitor all of their units 24/7 to alert them when residents were breaking HOA rules by listing their unit on short-term rental websites.
Action & Outcome
WRMC partnered with Property Guard in mid-2017 to monitor all of their properties in Texas to ensure compliance and safety were being met by the owners. By doing this they were able to eliminate time-consuming task of self-monitoring these websites and reviewing thousands of listings each day as well as minimize risk of unapproved guests, parking control, noise levels and property damage to the common areas and owners’ units.
"Property Guard enables us to serve our clients without any interference from short-term renters disturbing our communities. Our team can easily maintain full-control of each property knowing we have a watchdog on our side continually monitoring for unwanted activity."Worth Ross President, Worth Ross Management

More Happy Clients
Our best marketing comes from our customers
Find out why they recommend us to their colleagues and coworkers to help ease the burden on searching, validating and notifying short-term rentals.
As a one-person office for an association spread over 7 acres, with 10 buildings and 270 condos/owners it was next to impossible for me to do my daily tasks and then have time to search multiple websites for sublets. Property Guard has been a wonderful addition to my toolbox to help manage the association and keep our owners confident of rules and regulations being followed.Gregg Saunders, General Manager, River Oaks
Property Guard effectively alerts us ahead of time when any of our owners are marketing their units as short-term rentals. This has allowed us to catch prohibited leasing practices before they become larger issues. Thanks to PG I no longer have a second job!Elizabeth Babin, General Manager, Seaholm Residences
We use Property Guard to find tenants who are illegally renting out their units at our community and through their service we've actually made more money than what we've paid for it by fines collected through those who were caught.Lane Lykes, General Manager, The Broadway San Antonio
I used to spent time making sure that we had no short-term rentals in violation of my Association's rules. But I was never confident that I had checked all the online sites nor was it an effective use of my time. Now for a small monthly charge I am much more secure that I will be made aware of such activities at my property. Property Guard is money well spent.Will DeVane, PCAM, General Manager, 1505 Elm
We've had issues in the past with short-term renters at our community leaving trash by the common areas and broken glass by the pool as well as late night noise complaints, but since using Property Guard our issues have been resolved.Martin Salas, General Manager, Austin City Lofts
