I'm starting a property management company. Everything is ready to go - except the name!

I am a licensed agent, have three years of experience working for a company as office manager, agent and consultant. I have a lawyer and I know what I am getting into. I feel like I'm in a good situation here. The only problem I have is the name.
I want a name that sounds a little different - most PM companies in this area are initials.
I've also been advised that it's good to have a name as early in the alphabet as possible - so that your name comes up first on alphabetized lists. I'm not sure how relevant that is anymore with the internet.
One of the problems that people have with PM companies is they are hard to get a hold of - don't answer phone or email. I do, and this is why I thought about using the term Access.
I want people to know that I will manage in the general area, not just in the city of Syracuse. The terms would be CNY (central NY) or Upstate, but there's already several PM companies using those terms.
These are some of the ones I'm thinking of:
315 Access Property Management (315 is the area code here)
Access Syracuse Property Management
Clyde Property Management (my grandfather's name)
If you see a name that has Syracuse in it, would it make you think that the company only manages Syracuse properties?
Any other suggestions for names or things to think about when naming a company would be welcome.
Thank you hive mind!
