Expert property management, tailored to you

We have 28 years managing properties in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties.

We’ve placed hundreds of tenants and only once had to evict a tenant that we selected.

We have three service plans to provide the service you want at the lowest possible cost. They are explained in the video, above.

Contact us to discuss your situation and answer any questions you have.

Our Management Style

Our approach is win-win:

Satisfied tenants stay longer and minimize wear-and-tear on the property. Satisfied owners value our service and refer others.

To screen potential tenants, we have developed specific, proprietary techniques for effectively evaluating whether the person is responsible, trustworthy, and reliable. Not just a credit check, we consider the individual during a personal meeting and continue with a background check, including credit history, verification of employment, verification of income, landlord reference check, and, if desired, criminal history.

Once a tenant is accepted, we are fair and ethical, but firm and businesslike.

Getting It Rented

These days, renters have many choices so our goal is to get your property rented quickly to a good tenant.

Our effective marketing has generated over 330 requests from renters to visit our properties. We start by helping you set a realistic rent based on the location, condition and amenities of your property, plus the overall rental market.

Next, we want every possible renter to know about your property. We work to expose your property and get renters excited about it. We create a highly custom web page dedicated to your property, packed full of information and photos. In addition to advertising your property on our own site which tracks every visit, we promote it on numerous websites including:

We don’t stop there. We also post on Craigslist, paid services, to our private network of over 250 top real estate agents, and within our own real estate offices.

We’ll also post a sign at the property when possible. Plus, as a licensed real estate broker, we are able to market your property on the local Multiple Listing Service, as well.

Applicants can easily request a showing appointment directly from your web page and, of course, can contact us by email, phone and fax. By making it easy for applicants to rent from us, we get your property rented fast.

Note: This list of websites on which we advertise is subject to change without notice.

Tracking Marketing Results

Not only is our marketing comprehensive, we report to you weekly the direct results we are getting.

Here’s a sample report showing the results of a marketing campaign started at the end of September. The vacancy was filled in October and we continued to get inquiries into November:

Here is a weekly report of activity on our website for your property listed for rent at 3641 Kilo Avenue:
During the week of 11-13-20xx to 11-20-20xx, 7 unique visitors viewed your property page 8 times. (
Payment of Mortgage, Utilities, etc.

We can pay bills for you, such as mortgage, utilities, property taxes, insurance, and HOA dues.

Dealing with the Problems

The problems that arise with rentals range from routine to full-blown disasters.

We have dealt with a $70,000 fire in the middle of the night, a drunk driver crashing into a house, a water geyser due to a broken water pipe, a tenant’s claim of ghosts, backed-up toilets, tree roots in plumbing, fallen fences, stuck food disposers, clothes washing machines that stopped washing, clothes dryers that stopped drying, loud parties, pot smoking and neighbor disputes.

We hope they never happen but no matter what the surprises are, we handle them — so you don’t have to.

Maintenance and Repairs

Tenants can email, fax, or call us about maintenance issues.

Depending on the issue, we first try to give the tenant advice on how to solve the problem before sending a trusted vendor (or your own vendor, if you prefer). Our vendors are experienced, reliable, trustworthy and know that keeping costs down is important.

Expenses are passed on at actual cost (no markup) and we do not accept kickbacks from vendors.

Financial Reports

We provide you a monthly report of your income and expenses. At year end, we’ll provide a 1099 to you and any vendors, as required by law. We provide this service at no additional charge.

Receiving Your Payment

Your proceeds are sent monthly by direct deposit to an account you designate (such as a checking or investment account).
