We hired MIP to patrol a rental property we own in Tillicum and they did a fantastic job! Unfortunately, we got a couple of bad tenants in our rental that may have been dealing drugs and were attracting sketchy characters and vandalism. We hired MIP to monitor and patrol the property while we evicted these bad tenants. MIP was great and provided a level of safety for the existing tenants and piece of mind for us as we are out of state landlords. Cory and his crew did a great job and we would highly recommend them.
