Happy Customer

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.

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.

We have rented a two bedroom home in Cupertino through REC for the past ten years. REC has always been responsive in a timely manner when we have submitted requests for maintenance services. Our account manager has changed several times during our tenure, but each one has been friendly, professional and courteous. The online portal for making payments and submitting maintenance requests is very helpful. We would highly recommend REC as a responsible and responsive rental property manager.
