Welcome to Sunroom! 🎉 We are so excited to start working with you! Here's what you can expect when you partner with us as a realtor, brokerage, or property management company. We'll take you through the process from when you sign up as a partner to when you get the lease signed and a new tenant has moved in. You can click on any section from the Table of Contents to learn more about that specific part of the process.
Sign up to be a Partner

Download the Sunroom App for Realtors
We created the Sunroom app for realtors who are always on the go. With the app, you can submit a property to be listed straight from your phone - it only takes a few minutes! You'll also get real-time updates on property setups, when your listing goes live, new leads, tours completed and tour feedback, and be able to review and approve qualified applicants we send you.
Learn your way around the Partner Portal
Your partner portal is where all the action will be. Most everything you do with Sunroom is done through your portal - from submitting a property, to setting renter criteria, checking in on listing leads and tour feedback, and reviewing and approving applicants.
You can access your partner portal from the app or from a web browser. Please email or call your sales contact if you would like a tour of your portal. You can also watch a recorded version here >
Get to know your account manager
You get a dedicated account manager assigned to you as soon as you sign up as a Sunroom partner. They are your personal resource throughout the entire Sunroom leasing process. Please contact them directly if you have questions or concerns. Your account manager and their contact information will be listed prominently in your partner portal.
Submit Your First Property
It's simple to submit a property with Sunroom. Click the green 'Market Property' in your partner portal. We'll ask you a series of questions about how you want to work with us and information about the property. This should only take a few minutes, and it's much easier to fill out than it is on the MLS.
Once you've completed the questions, you're done! You will see the property show up in the 'Going to Market' section of your partner portal. From there, the Sunroom team goes to works to get the listing live.
Sunroom Sets Up Your Property
Sunroom sets up all of the marketing items and locks to get your property ready for listing and renter tours. Here are the marketing items we install:
- 'For Rent' sign (optional)
- Sunlock (optional)
- Combo lockbox
Track listing stats
Once your listing goes live, you'll be able to track the number of leads and tours completed at your specific property in real-time. You will also be able to review any tour feedback.
Review and approve qualified applicants
Sunroom is always working your renter leads, encouraging them to tour, give tour feedback, and apply quickly if interested. Read more about how we work renter leads here>
We know finding a quality renter who pays on time is top priority for our partners. Sunroom upholds a very thorough screening process using renter criteria you set to find you the best renters possible. We While our team processes applications and screens applicants, you and your client have control over which applicants you approve or deny.
Sunroom gets the lease signed and coordinates move-in
Once you approve a renter, Sunroom will kick off the lease drafting and signing process. We also collect security deposit and coordinate move ins with the new tenant.
How Billing Works
We keep it simple when it comes to billing. The Sunroom billing process is different based on how you submitted the property for market, and if you chose to 'Stay Involved' or 'Take Me Out of the Process'.
How we keep you updated
We want to make sure you know what's happening with your listing at every step of the process. We have multiple ways we keep you up-to-date.
- Push notifications in the Sunroom app
You can expect notifications at every important step of the way.
That's Sunroom in a nutshell - We're excited to work with you!
