How to Arrange A Tour

How can I arrange for a tour of your homes?
You can send an email to us at with the date and time that you would like a tour and your contact info, and we will get back to you as soon as we can. If you happen to be in Rolla, you can call us at 573-341-6794 and if someone is available, they will try and arrange a tour. Because all of the houses are or will be rented to students, we prefer to know a minimum of 48 hrs in advance so that we can arrange the tours with the tenants.
