What's this transition all about?

Silver River is joining Poplar through the sale of its property management business. The Silver River staff will remain as your property managers with expanded support and resources from Poplar's 24/7 team and platform.

While Poplar is the new owner of the business, all Silver River clients will continue to receive the same level of services as they've always had.

No immediate changes in the terms of your property management agreement.

Hear from some current Poplar Homes Clients

Erik Huang

"My experience with Poplar has been excellent! It's been nice to have help in booking contractors etc. The customer service directly from the company is great. I appreciate the consistency and the checkups to see that the job is done right and on time."

Ashley Robertson

"Anytime I have an issue, it is resolved very fast. The whole maintenance team is amazing and helpful. You can notice the genuineness in their voice and they make sure you are confident and satisfied with your resolved issues. I'm also a big fan of their user-friendly dashboard."

Christopher Harris

"On at least four occasions, the tenants reported an issue to Poplar and Poplar contacted me via text, I approved moving ahead to get a bid and fixing the problem again via text. The next thing I heard was that the problem was taken care of to the tenant’s satisfaction."
