Leasing Your Menlo Park Rental Property

For a successful rental experience, you need a high performing tenant. We specialize in finding those tenants. We work quickly to get your property off the market because vacancies are no good for anyone. So, we work hard to find a great tenant for the most money – fast. Our leasing process is as unique as your property. Most of our tenants find us through our strategic and aggressive online advertising campaigns. But, we also use our extensive professional network and real estate connections to find you a great tenant. It’s who we are and what we do.

Our leasing process provides:

  • Competitive and profitable rental property pricing.
  • Lower vacancy and turnover rates.
  • Thorough property inspections before marketing your home.
  • Marketing and advertising that targets qualified renters.
  • Showings and applications.
  • Fair, thorough, and consistent tenant screening.

Legally compliant lease agreements.

Happy Customer

Very large quotation mark

Real Estate Connections has managed my property for two and half years. I am very satisfied with their service. From looking for the tenant, managing the repairs, to the monthly detailed statements, they managed everything so well that I didn’t worry at all. Nicole who was my property manager always responded quickly, negotiated rent increase, and looked after everything for me. In fact, Nicole managed my property so well that I didn’t go to see my property once. I will definitely recommend REC to my friends.

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.
