Foundation Homes Property Management:
Who We Are

Property Management Mission and Values

The Mission of Foundation Homes Property Management

We help results-driven landlords by delivering performance-built property management – renting properties faster and for higher value – while protecting and improving asset performance through any market. With our level of service, you can forget about the complications of owning rental properties in rent-controlled California and focus on what’s really important: living an outstanding life. We want to see you – the Type-A personality – get out of your own way when it comes to managing your property. We’ll help you get leverage by creating a new mindset where hands-off property management goes hand-in-hand with financial – and personal – freedom for years to come. We will know we’re successful when the only word associated with “property management” in our clients’ minds is freedom.

Why Work With Us

Attentive Service

The oldest management company in town isn’t always the right one: the number one reason clients come to Foundation Homes is our impressively low client:staff ratio and resulting personalized service. (We are not your mother’s property management company.)

Anyone can (and will!) claim great service, but not everyone can execute it. We retain and serve our clients by evaluating your unique goals and meeting or exceeding your expectations. We work with properties on a one-on-one basis, versus putting you through what we call the “property management machine”. We know that all properties are different (especially single family homes) and have their own unique set of requirements. Our ultimate goal is to protect the asset, as well as your bottom line.

Luxury Focused

We’re micro-focused in what we do: luxury properties. Some property management companies handle everything: HOA’s, different types of apartment buildings, lower-end properties, etc, or stretch their employees thin by taking on every listing that comes their way.

We focus on higher-end, single family homes in Marin and select properties in San Francisco and Sonoma. We know the ins and outs of this unique segment of the market; we know what increases your profit, and what puts you at risk. Our founders have been providing distinct rental services in the local market since 2005 and we use this experience to position your property competitively, so you can get the best possible return for your distinct property.

Uncompromised Screening

We began as a luxury “leasing only” agency, and as such developed exceptionally high qualifying screening standards – probably the highest in the area. As we moved into luxury property management, we believe this explains why our eviction rate is less than one percent.

Plenty of real estate agents or agencies offer leasing or property management, but if they don’t specialize in higher-end management, important details will get missed and – especially when it comes to screening and lease preparation – they can inadvertently cut corners that cost you money and expose liability. We don’t. We have strict qualifications for national or international tenants who want to lease from us, and we employ a detailed two-point checking system to verify every piece of information required. Our lease is lengthy and detailed. We believe in uncompromising honesty and integrity in every single transaction that we make on behalf of our property owners, and we’re here to protect your asset every step of the way.

What Our Clients Say

We have been working with Foundation Rentals & Relocation for almost a year now and the experience has been absolutely wonderful. Christopher, Darcy, Michael, and Victor are always available, and their knowledge, expertise, and all around professionalism is truly a breath of fresh air. Michael had saved us more than once when we were in a bind and needed a good, quality company to fix an issue with our home, and this has saved us a ton of money and headaches. Not only is Foundation great at what they do, they are decent, real people. Keep up the great work!

The Barrow Bridge to LifeBoost Charitable Fund

A portion of every commission earned each year by Foundation Homes goes to support local charities, including the Barrows’ LifeBoost Charitable Fund.

An incorporated 501(c)(3) operated by Christopher and Darcy Barrow, the LifeBoost Charitable Fund is a local non-profit in the works to serve the underserved in Marin County and beyond.

Founded in 2011 after Christopher Barrow’s own previous battles with stage III Colon Cancer.
