Ratings and Reviews
Tellus is amazing for so many reasons! First off, it’s FREE! I love being able to tell applicants that there is no charge to apply. I’ve even started to spin it by saying that we have waived the application fee. They always sound so grateful. Next best thing is that not only do they round up all the reports for you and put them all together in one place but they then - provide an analysis ‘with a recommendation’!!! It’s unbelievable! Even a monkey could select a good tenant using this! Of course, it’s wise to thoroughly look over everything but this gives you so much for nothing! And the customer service....is out of this world! No they are not there 24 hours a day - but they are there 99% of the time. The responses are quick, and even though it’s all been via chat, I get the impression that they are genuinely nice, friendly, and helpful people.
And, I thought that the other reviews were kinda corny saying that they liked Zilly the kitty - but you really do come to love Zilly. I’m new to property management but my impression is that this is a game changer. They make it so easy that anyone can do it!
All features easy to navigate!
Setting up a lease is easy. You are guided step-by-step and provided sample leases. They are drafted by lawyers to be thorough and incredibly reliable. Individual and group chats can be set up and navigated on the same page.
It is easy to confirm an invitation from your landlord, review and sign the lease all in app. I was immediately taken to a screen with my address, lease date and amount info, whether there are any late fees, recurring fees (like pets) or other clauses. At the bottom it provides a quick chat option to the landlord. I can always double check my lease and instantly message my landlord.
Amazing help for homeowners!
As a homeowner, I’ve tried a few different rent collection methods. Doing bank transfers wasn’t ideal because of the transfer caps. Recently I’ve used Venmo but found it hard to use. There isn’t a clean history of payments because the rent gets mixed into all your other transactions. The biggest headache is that I would have to follow up on late payments myself. I LOVE that Zilly sends automated reminders to the tenant, so I don’t have to worry about it. The app has a super user friendly interface and organizes all the info I need in one easy to access place. Highly recommend this for homeowners - this will make your life easier!
