Property Service Agency began as a sole proprietorship by Norm Marty in the early 1980s. Norm saw a need for a building and grounds maintenance service in Ames and relied on quality work and "word of mouth" by satisfied customers to do his advertising. Norm's carpentry skills, knowledge of building maintenance, and attention to detail grew his business which he expanded to include property management.

The company did a large expansion in 2000 when sons Chad & Chris and son-in-law Matt joined with the company. Each brought additional skills, new ideas, and their own expertise to the company and manage their own areas and personnel for the company.

Over the last 10 years the company has increased its services offered and personnel numbers. Property Service Agency continues to offer residential and commercial building and grounds maintenance and property management while expanding into a full service window and siding contractor, home remodel, and complete interior/exterior painting contractor.

The company has grown but the integrity of the company has remained the same. Quality workmanship and customer satisfaction remain key to Property Service Agency's success.
