About Service Star Realty

We are incredibly thankful for the people and the success of Service Star Realty. Whether you’re a tenant, investor or realtor, we hope to count you as one of our future success stories! Starting small, we had no idea that we would grow as fast and strong as we did. In the time it took to plan a centennial celebration for our first hundred units, we had doubled in size (so doubled the celebration!)

We now manage around 950 properties with a team that still feels like family. We’re not shy about this success because it’s driven by our philosophy to help people and provide exceptional service. You can get to know us in this video, hear why we kept our first ever keybox, who is the number-cruncher and who is the people person, but most importantly, what it is we love about our clients, our team, and a life in property management.

The Service Star Story


Service Star Realty began in 2011 from a shared vision of Dora Pinter and David Swaim, a Phoenix realtor couple with 60 plus years of combine real estate experience. David and Dora wanted to create a property management company that offered valuable service at an affordable price that owners can trust in.

The original idea for developing a Phoenix property management company came to them when they watched David’s parents deal with a troubled property management company. That company was impossible to reach. They would return voice mails a week later or send an email instead of calling. They had extensive repair costs and a terrible track record for keeping tenants. When they charged for a new dishwasher three times in the same year, the Swaims decided they needed a different company. This was a perfect opportunity for David and Dora to help and start fulfilling the vision.

The industry needed professionals who offered great customer service, honesty and a strong work ethic. Service Star Realty was created from this initial dream. Since then, the company has grown to manage around 950 properties because of client referrals and proven track record. The secret recipe is great systems where nothing falls through the cracks and an enthusiastic staff who loves property management. David and Dora are proud of their company growth and grateful to all the clients who have recommended them. Today, the Swaims and nearly 700 investors remain satisfied customers of Service Star Realty.
