Safeguard Property Management has been managing my rental house for almost 7 years now. They've always been very responsive and helpful. If there's an issue with a tenant or the house, Merrilee always handles it professionally. If I have a request, if she can't respond immediately, she always gets back to me at the end of the day or the next day latest. Overall, I'm really happy with their service. I can depend on her and her office staff.

I have been renting with Safeguard since July of 2019. They have been courteous and professional at every contact we have had with them. Service requests have been handled quickly. They have an easy to use app to pay rent/deposits, and to sign documents as well as submit service requests. They are a top notch company to rent from, so I am assuming they treat the property owners just as well. I would use their services again both as a tenant and as an owner if the need arises. Update with new info: I moved out of Utah in July of 2021, which ended my contract with Safeguard. They were timely and fair with returning my deposit. I would highly recommend this company if you are a tenant. They were attentive and timely.

I am so glad I decided to switch to Safeguard Property Management. Merrilee has put in the time and effort to make sure my rental property is successful. Her service is so much better than my previous manager who cost me thousands in lost income. Thank you Merrilee.

I'm a Utah transplant and my original housing plans fell through as I was moving out here. By chance and timing I found my current apartment, and it was meant to be! I have consistently been pleased with Safeguard and their staff, especially Merrilee and the building managers. I'm very pleased to be a long-term resident!

We have rented through Safeguard a couple different time and have been tenants with them for years. They are always professional and helpful when it come to any repairs or maintenance we need help with. They are sure to call me back or email me in regards to any questions I might have. I would defiantly refer them to anyone looking to rent or that needs a property management team.

Safeguard has been wonderful to work with! We moved out of the country for an international assignment with my company and they found renters for us, handle all of the paperwork, and keep us informed. It's good to know that we have Safeguard watching our property while we're away!
