Waxahachie, Texas

Waxahachie, TexasWaxahachie is the county seat of Ellis County, Texas, United States, and lies just beyond the southern suburbs of Dallas. The population was 29,621 at the 2010 census, with an estimated population of 32,344 in 2014.

Etymology

Some sources state that the name means “cow” or “buffalo” in an unspecified Native American language.[6] One possible Native American origin is the Alabama language, originally spoken in the area of Alabama around Waxahatchee Creek by the Alabama-Coushatta people, who had migrated by the 1850s to eastern Texas. In the Alabama language, waakasi hachi means “calf’s tail” (the Alabama word waaka being a loan from Spanish vaca).

That there is a Waxahatchee Creek near present-day Shelby, Alabama, suggests that Waxahachie, Texas, shares the same name etymology. Many place names in Texas and Oklahoma have their origins in the Southeastern United States, largely due to migration and/or forced removal of various southeastern Indian tribes. The area in central Alabama that includes Waxahatchee Creek was for hundreds of years the home of the Upper Creek moiety of the Muscogee Creek Nation. Again, this would suggest a Muscogee Creek language origin of Waxahachie. “Waxahachie” therefore may be an anglicized pronunciation of the Muscogee compound word Wakvhvce from the Muscogee words Wakv (meaning “cow” derived from the Spanish vaca) and the Muscogee word Hvce (meaning “tail”).

A second etymology that has been suggested for the name is insisted on by speakers of Wichita, the language of the tribe which used to live in the area but now lives mostly around Anadarko, Oklahoma. Wichita people claim the name comes from their word waks’ahe:ts’i (the apostrophe represents a glottal stop, like the middle sound in “oh oh”; “a” is schwa (“uh”); “e:” sounds almost like the “a” of “hat”; “ts” before “i” in this language often sounds like “ch” to English speaking ears; “i” has the continental value, like the one in English “machine”). It means “fat wildcat”.

What Sets Us Apart

There are many property management firms out in the marketplace today, but they do not all oversee an investment properly.  At Herman Boswell Property Management, we do not believe in the remote management of our client’s rental properties.  With our firm being hands on, we are able to spot any potential problem sources such as continual damage being made to the rental property, and so forth.

We personally inspect each property we manage twice a year, as to prevent costly repairs, due to the tenant not reporting issues as they arise.  When choosing a property management company, it is very important that they manage your property directly and not off in some remote location, where their eyes will never see your property personally.

Unlike most of our competition out here in the marketplace, we are not a fly by night organization.  We have proudly served Dallas/Fort Worth since 1968!  When selecting a property management firm, be sure to investigate their ethical model that their organization has in place.

Find a firm that will provide rest assurance, that your property manager won’t just one day, not be there.  We aren’t going anywhere, and we are truly looking forward to earning your business.

To ensure that your property remains in the utmost best condition, we conduct regular inspections.  During these inspections, we pin point any needed repairs that may not have been reported by the tenant.  This process helps to eliminate prolonged damage to your rental, due to tenant failing to inform management of repair needs that arise.

The type of inspections, that we do are move-in, periodic, & move-out inspections.  We also conduct periodic drive by inspections. These inspections also help to ensure tenants are complying with their lease, as such as having unreported pets.

Our screening process is pretty robust, using the best 3rd party verification system available.  We utilize credit history, criminal history, employment verification and rental history to gain a complete picture of the lease applicant.

We have access to some of the most skilled trades people in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Due to our size, we can get excellent rates on the most common needed work such as HVAC, plumbing, electrical, roofing, garage door, landscape, painting and more!

We utilize credit history, criminal history, employment verification and rental history to gain a complete picture of the lease applicant.

When a lease is up for renewal, we will contact the tenants that their lease is expiring.  When we notify the tenant that it is time to renew and will provide them with the details of what the renewal will contain, such as any rent price increase etc.

Your investment deserves more than just collecting the rent. Great marketing is what enables us to quickly fill vacancies. Our property management marketing services are geared to find renters quickly for property owners throughout the metroplex.

We handle ALL rent collection for our client owners. We also handle service of process and eviction proceedings if necessary.
