About Michael Schultz
Property Manager

I am a recent transplant to Suwannee County from the Sarasota area. My family and I were looking for a small town and instantly fell in love with Live Oak. The community has much to offer and we love the pace of life here. It’s so peaceful. I am an Army Veteran and have been around the world and can say there is no place I would rather be. I have been in Real Estate/Property Management since 2011 and have grown to realize that this Real Estate isn’t about sales or transactions - it’s about relationships. Feel free to call or text anytime.

Poole Marketing


Are you ready to rent out your property, or do you have a vacancy? Let Poole Realty help with marketing. We will create the signage necessary, as well as create digital listings that will be placed on our website. We also feed our listings to about 50 of the most popular search sites on the internet.

Our goal is to fill vacancies quickly and effectively! Our team ensures that as many potential tenants view your listing as possible. We organize showings for interested tenants, handling all the details to ensure the right tenants are interested in your property.

Tenant Placement

Through our use of state-of-the-art technology, we can quickly screen potential tenants. We require tenants to submit an application, rental history, employment, and income verification, as well as to complete a background check and credit check. Once we find the perfect applicant for your property, we will handle the lease preparation, negotiation, signing, and rental pricing.

Property Maintenance & Inspections

Before a tenant moves in, we will ensure any needed cleanings and repairs are completed. We use state-of-the-art tools, including taking detailed photographs, videos, and notes to document the appearance of your property. With us, tenants can submit maintenance requests at any time using our online portal. We have a vast network of maintenance contractors to whom we submit work orders to ensure problems are solved efficiently, your property is kept safe, and tenants live comfortably.

Our Technology

Our state-of-the-art software solution is designed to provide efficient and effective service. Our industry-leading software helps us to market your properties to a broader range of potential tenants by posting on our website and hundreds of other listings, allowing you to fill vacancies quicker. Plus, those interested in your property can apply easily from their phones. 

Our software also provides the information necessary to set the best rental price for your property based on your local real estate market. It allows us to screen potential tenants within minutes through background and credit checks and past rent payment histories. We can also deposit the rent directly into your bank account for your convenience and collect rent through quick, easy, and secure online payments. 

Through our Owner’s Portal, you can easily access your property information and statements from the past month anywhere and anytime. Our software allows for electronic work orders and communication with contractors to help us efficiently solve any maintenance issues. 

If you would like, we can email you all the work order information and provide you with updates.


At Poole Realty, we understand that handling all of the financial aspects of renting out a property can be overwhelming. That’s why our experts take care of all your property-related accounting for you. We handle rent collection, ensuring rent is always paid in full and on-time.

Through our online portal, tenants can quickly pay their rent electronically using three different payment options. We also take care of all financial expenses related to your investment, such as collecting and disbursing seasonal taxes as required, and we document your cash flow. You can view this information through our online owner statements anytime, anywhere.
