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.

After several plumbing trips, part of leaking drain line and leaking main line seem to have stopped leaking. Marshy area of yard appears to be drying out!!! Albeit, it may take a bit before the odor dissipates. Rec-Rental was responsive and their contractors are highly competent and professional. The leak required multiple trips to identify, during a pandemic, and was still fixed in under 1 month. Thank you very much. 🙂 I really appreciate this!!! They really do keep up with potential plumbing problems, which not all property management firms will do.
