Tenant Resources & Tips for a Successful Rental Experience

We work with tenants and prospective tenants to make sure the application, move-in, and leasing process is efficient, stress-free, and productive. If you’re new to the area and you need help with utilities or schools, let us know. When you’re looking for a property that’s pet-friendly, close to your workplace, or generous with closet space – talk to us about your needs.

We believe in connecting great tenants with great homes.

Our goal is to help you find your next home. We can show you houses for rent in Silicon Valley and surrounding areas. Take the opportunity to select from our list of rental homes, or enter your specific search criteria in the appropriate fields. Real Estate Connections proudly serves all of Silicon Valley.

Whether you’re looking for a single family home with a little yard space or a modern condo with all the best amenities, we can help you target your search and find a home that fits your lifestyle and your budget. Take a look at what we currently have available, and talk to one of our leasing agents about a showing. We’re here to walk you through the process and answer any questions you may have.

REC is perfect and I would like to recommend all my friends to find a property by reaching out REC. No matter when we have a problem, the rental manager (Marty Gillum) would reply us within 24 hours (normally immediately if we sent out our email during business hours or the next day if email were sent out late evening). He is patient and kind, and the property we rented is excellent, plus the rental is cheap. The reason we moved out is because we bough a house and have to say goodbye to REC, however, I already shared REC homepage as well as Marty’s email address with my peers in case any of them want to find an apartment to live. Really appreciate your great help in the past 4 years!

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.
