How We Expertly Lease Your Home

We take care of your leasing needs so you don’t have to worry about losing money on vacancies or placing a tenant who will later need to be evicted.

Do you have a rental in Belgatos, Blossom Manor, Heritage Grove, La Rinconada, Downtown, or the surrounding neighborhoods?

We can make a difference in the leasing process. We will place a better tenant, and here’s how:

  • Rental property pricing to limit vacancies and attract superior tenants.

  • Property inspections to prepare your home for the rental market.

  • Rental property marketing and advertising to target qualified renters.

  • Property showings that are convenient, helpful, and positive.

  • Tenant screening that’s fair, consistent, and thorough.

  • Lease agreements that protect your property and limit your liability.

After your property is leased, we hope you’ll take advantage of our full service property management plan. If you can take it from here, we’ll turn the tenant, the lease agreement, and all the documentation over to you.

How We Care for Your Property

Most Los Gatos investors don’t want to spend their time responding to maintenance calls and making sure their tenants are taking good care of the property.
We’re here to do that for you in a professional manner with all of the systems and processes that we have perfected over the years. We’ll make sure your property is well-maintained, and we’ll enforce your lease agreement.
Peace of mind is important. We provide you with that reassurance through:

  • Regular property inspections.

  • Maintenance availability 24 hours a day and seven days a week.

  • Tenant relationships that are respectful and professional.

  • Monthly statements that improve communication and keep you informed.

At Real Estate Connections, we believe in elevating the property management standard in Los Gatos and throughout the area. With us, your investment home is in good hands.

With RentFax, we can help you properly price your rental property. Incorrect pricing is one of the reasons that properties stay on the market longer than necessary. A vacant property isn’t making you any money, so let’s get it right. With this report, we’ll use your address and details about your home to compare what you offer to other properties already on the market. This will give you a high and low range, and we’ll talk about the best way to position your home competitively in the rental market.

We’ve had a good experience renting from Real Estate Connections. The house is very nice, including the HVAC system that filters the air. If we ever have a maintenance request, it’s resolved in a timely manner.
