We have a passion for real estate and rental properties, and we love working in this community. Our clients are landlords and investors like you who need help with leasing, management, and real estate sales.

Eviction Coordination

Should there be a need to evict a tenant, we'll coordinate with our attorney to ensure legal compliance.

Placing Tenants in Your Investment Property

Placing great tenants in your Sunnyvale property is our first order of business. Vacancy is expensive, so we work quickly to prepare and market your home to attract high quality tenants. We use online marketing strategies as well as yard signs and our relationships within the real estate community to find prospective residents any time you have a vacancy. We know that the best tenants look for the best properties. We make sure yours gets their immediate attention.

Do you have a rental property in Downtown Sunnyvale, Cherry Chase, Lakewood Village, San Miguel, or the surrounding neighborhoods?

REC Rentals can improve your leasing process and ensure we place responsible tenants.

Our leasing process includes:

Market-based rental property pricing.

Lower vacancy and turnover rates for higher ROI.

Property inspections before we market your rental.

Advertising and property showings.

Tenant applications and screenings.

Strong and protective lease agreements.

We’ll place your tenant, execute your lease, and then offer our outstanding management services. However, you only need our leasing services, we’ll turnover all the paperwork and documentation, and wish you a successful rental experience.

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.

The office staff was extremely supportive when I discovered an issue with the lease and was able to get everything resolved to my satisfaction. Couldn't be more pleased.

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.

Nicole is always very prompt and efficient about getting back with me when little things arise which is very rare that they do
