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.
