here's from IRS 1099 instructions
Exceptions. Some payments do not have to be reported on Form 1099-MISC, although they may be taxable to the recipient. Payments for which a Form 1099-MISC is not
required include all of the following.
• Payments of rent to real estate agents or property
managers. However, the real estate agent or property
manager must use Form 1099-MISC to report the rent paid
over to the property owner. See Regulations sections
1.6041-3(d), 1.6041-1(e)(5), Example 5, and the instructions
for box 1.
so I would say no 1099 required.
It largely depends on the payee. If the service you used to find tenants was not a corporation (i.e., Bob's Tenant Finders, Inc.), it is recommended that you report the payment on a 1099-MISC. Generally, payments to a corporation (including a limited liability company [LLC] that is treated as a C or S corporation) do not need to be reported on a 1099-MISC.
- Services performed by independent contractors or others (not employees of your business) (Box 7)
Even though you are acting as a landlord, it is important to file a 1099-MISC if you are looking to take the (up to) 20% Qualified Business Income (QBI) deduction. This deduction is available to individuals and owners who seek to claim the deduction with respect to a rental real estate enterprise. A rental real estate enterprise will be treated as a trade or business for purposes of the QBI deduction if certain criteria are met. Here is some more information from the IRS on the QBI deduction.

As a rental property owner, *YOU* are not required to issue a 1099-MISC for anything. However, since you paid a management company to manage the property for you, the management company may (or may not) be required to issue *YOU* a 1099-MISC showing the rent that was paid to you.
The only way you would be required to issue a 1099-MISC is if you paid an *INDIVIDUAL* more than $600 for something in 2019. If you paid a business, then no 1099-MISC is required.
