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.

How long do I have to live in an apartment to get new carpet if when I move in it wasn't new. Just checking because my carpet needs to be changed out. I went out and got a big rug to hide a couple of spots. I did shampoo the carpet a couple of times. Thanks

REC has been excellent to work with. They've made my life as a far-away, absentee landlord a breeze. They handle literally everything, so I don't need to think about a thing. They keep me up to date with any changes or repairs needed and handle all aspects of that. They transfer net rent to my account and keep me informed of any paperwork and tax documents. Their fee is right in line with several others I interviewed. I feel I'm getting excellent value and highly recommend them.

Leaky main water line. REC followed up with several visits from the local plumber. (Several were required because the problem was hard to find.) Water line issue was resolved promptly. 🙂 Thanks again.
