Leasing Expertise

Leasing a Santa Clara property requires a deep understanding of the market and the competition. Our goal is to find you the most qualified renter and to lease your home quickly. Vacancy costs are expensive, and best avoided. We advertise your property online and through our extensive network of contacts. We screen your tenants to ensure we have a high performing tenant who pays rent consistently and takes care of your property.

Do you have a rental property near Alta Mira, Pacific Gardens, Talavera, Westwood, or the surrounding neighborhoods?

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

Our leasing process targets:

  • Rental property pricing that’s competitive.

  • Reduced vacancy rates to save you money.

  • Property inspections prior to listing your home.

  • Marketing and advertising your rental property.

  • Property showings and efficient applications.

  • Tenant screening that’s fair, consistent, and thorough.

  • Lease agreements that protect your property and limit your liability.

Once we successfully place an outstanding tenant, we can seamlessly move into the ongoing management of your home. Some of the investors we work with prefer to manage on their own. In that case, we’ll hand the tenants over to you, and remain available for any questions you have or problems you encounter.

Happy Customer

I used REC Rental Service to manage my condo rental in Saratoga for about 20 years. Bob and Diane took care of everything; finding and managing good tenants, paying the bills, sending statements, and keeping me informed.. We did a minor remodel 6 years ago, and they found all the subcontractors and managed the whole project. I recently decided to sell the condo, and used REC Real Estate to list and sell the unit. Mike took care of getting new carpet, paint, staging, etc.. The unit sold in just a couple days for above asking price. Mike kept me up to date throughout the entire process, and was an absolute pleasure to work with. This is a family business, and I have been very happy to work with them for all these years.

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.

Love the property; several maintenance items needed to be addressed after I moved in and still a couple are outstanding.

Real Estate Connections Michelle
Getting paperwork completed in a timely and accurate manner was a challenge; please be prepared with documents already signed by the owners so there's no risk of late penalties on the renter's end (i.e. from the HOA). Otherwise the experience has been good.
