Kodiak Properties, LLC was founded in 2017 by Lawrence County native, Kyleigh Haynes, who recognized during her personal search for a place to rent, that inventory was lacking for good, quality places for people to call home. So she left her day job and decided to do something about it! Kodiak has since become the family business it is today and strives to provide extras for its' tenants, doing things we've never heard of being done! We aim to be your housing solution. Have a unique or creative request? We are determined to bring it to life. Just ask.
There are an abundance of renters seeking high-quality places for rent and not enough high-quality rentals to meet the demand. The idea is to run the "slumlords" out of town and make our communities a clean, healthy, and comfortable place to call home.
We are not a property management company. All of our properties are solely owned and managed by Kodiak Properties. We aim to please and often get creative with our leasing. Need us to provide a weekly cleaning service? We will do it. Need us to help carry your items in or out at move-in? We will do it. Just ask. We aim to provide solutions.
Kyleigh Haynes spent her career in the insurance and financial services industries. She began with a successful career in the auto and home insurance industry. Her exceptional skills and work ethic landed her in the top 1% of agents for her category during her rookie year working for Liberty Mutual. Haynes followed by obtaining various other insurance and investment licenses and ran her own financial planning practice, where she gained an impressive understanding of financing principles. Her expertise in finance has proven valuable in the real estate investment category, where she is now a leading figure. Haynes still actively serves as the area's main lender for real estate investors seeking funding for their projects.
The idea for Kodiak Properties was born when Haynes was searching for housing options herself and found that the available rentals were either too expensive or not up to her standards. She realized there was a gap in the market for high-quality rental properties that were updated, had a meticulous maintenance program, but were still affordable for the average citizen, and thus Kodiak Properties was born.
Crazy enough, the name 'Kodiak Properties' was inspired by Haynes’ ATV at that time, a 2016 Yamaha Kodiak. Haynes chuckles as she tells the story of how she was sitting on her ATV when her attorney called asking for the name of the newly established entity so she looked down and the name came from her beloved Yamaha.
Haynes wanted Kodiak to be different in many ways. She utilized her insurance industry knowledge to provide short-term and fully-furnished housing to those displaced from their homes due to insurance claims (fire damage, etc). She also established a strong wholesaling and flipping division for the company to aid in cleaning up blighted homes in the area in addition to the lending work she does in the real estate investor community.
When she is not at the office, you can find Kyleigh riding around on her ATV, camping with friends, or spending time with family. She also enjoys working out, playing guitar, and helping out her community. Haynes is an active stakeholder to many charitable organizations in the area and donates a lot of hours every year helping out organizations such as the F.O.P., The Humane Society, and New Lease on Life, to name a few.
