Locally Owned and Managed
Unlike most apartment complexes that bring in big, faceless, fee-based management companies to manage their properties, netZero Village is owner-managed by Bruns Realty Group, LLC. As owners, we are uniquely familiar with our properties and we have a vested interest to provide the best level of service possible. Concerns and issues are addressed quickly because we are the owners; no need to ask “permission” to get things done.
Bruns Realty Group is a small company with the big mission of providing the best customer experience possible. We are interested in building a relationship with our customers and to show our customers that they are much more than a rent check or an apartment number. Our loyalty is to our customers, and we’ll do all we can to make sure they have an outstanding experience with us.
We are always looking to leverage technology to improve the customer experience and decrease our impact on the environment. One recent convenience that we have put in place is our Resident Portal. The Resident Portal allows residents to pay rent, track your rental account and make maintenance requests when and where you want, 24/7, from your computer or smart phone.
Bruns Realty Group was founded with the intent to become the best-in-class property management company. Unlike a typical management company who might rotate staff, you will see the same familiar, trusted, friendly faces on our properties, day-in, day-out.
Thank you for considering us for your next apartment home!
