Mountain View and Los Altos Property Management Services

Real Estate Connections brings together property owners and tenants, investors and homes, experts and questions. We have been managing properties and leasing out homes in Mountain View and Los Altos since 1952.

More important than the work we do are the relationships we create.

Maybe you need help managing and maintaining a single family home. Perhaps you need a high quality tenant for your condo or townhouse. Maybe you’ve been self-managing your rental property, and the late night repair requests have become too cumbersome. Or, you might be in the market for an investment property and you want some advice before you buy.

We can help.

Owner Services

Let’s discuss your Palo Alto investment property. If you have specific questions or problems that need solving, we can come up with some creative solutions that will make the management of your home seamless. Our goal at REC is to increase your ROI and protect the condition of your investment.

24/7 Emergency Line

Tenants can rest assured that they can call us for emergency maintenance concerns.

We will take photos of your property and market it on all the major online sites

Qualify Screening & Placement

Credit, income verification, landlord verification and eviction background screening


Lease Preparation

We'll prepare a strong lease that will protect you as a landlord


Financial Reporting

A year-end statement showing all the income and expenses along with a 1099 will be prepared and sent to you every January.

Eviction Coordination

Should there be a need to evict a tenant, we'll coordinate with our attorney to ensure legal compliance.

Leasing Your Home with a Professional Mountain View and Los Altos Property Management Company

Real Estate Connections offers leasing services that help you prepare your property for the rental market and find a tenant quickly. We develop strategic marketing plans, advertise your home, screen applicants, and ultimately place a highly qualified tenant. Then, we develop a lease agreement that complies with all state, federal, and local laws.

Do you have a rental property near Downtown Mountain View, Shoreline, North Los Altos, or the surrounding neighborhoods?

We are here to improve the leasing process and make the placement of great tenants a priority.

Our leasing process:

  • Accurate rental property pricing.

  • Lower vacancy rates.

  • Property inspections.

  • Marketing and advertising.

  • Property showings and applications.

  • Tenant screening.

  • Lease agreements.

Once we place an outstanding tenant, we invite you to take advantage of our ongoing property management services. But, if you prefer a lease-only plan, we’ll turnover all the paperwork and documentation, and wish you a successful rental experience.

Free Rental Analysis

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.
