Performance Built Rent Analysis

Our performance built and results-driven property management services start with a strategic plan to get the highest rent possible for your property in the current market. We thoroughly research market rates to maximize the rent amount. We also recommend property improvements to increase asking rents. Did you know our team rents homes on average 2% HIGHER and 16% FASTER than the average MLS agent? That quickly adds up to hundreds if not thousands more in your pocket just for listing with us.

Results-Driven Marketing

We use a comprehensive advertising plan, including online avenues as well as traditional platforms, to reach all potential tenants. Complimentary for our clients: Professional photography, open houses, MLS marketing, "For Rent" signage, social media and video tours as needed. (Double check what our competitors may charge for these elements, which we consider to be part of our job as professional agents marketing your home!)

Finding Tenants Quickly

How do we rent your home 16% FASTER than the average MLS agent? Simple: we're a "Leasing Forward" agency. We answer leasing calls 24/7, and 97% of our callers speak to a LIVE person. We track our data and we track our results. We also use in-house, Fair-Housing trained leasing agents in addition to state-of-the-art self-showing technology to gather as many applicants as possible and provide you with as much legal protection as possible.

Tenant Placement Protection Program

WIf a tenant we place into your rental property leaves before the end of the initial lease term, we will not charge you a Leasing Commission to find a replacement tenant. (Our Platinum Portfolio clients additionally have lost rent covered up to $36,000 in a lease break scenario; see below).

8-Point Applicant Screening

We’ve set high qualification standards and have a detailed 8-point application process, which includes income verification, rental background checks, eviction screening, credit checks and even pet screening. We have the strictest screening standards in town - which results in highly qualified tenants and our less than 1% eviction rate. If you don't list with us, whatever you do, please DO NOT accept a credit report self-supplied by your applicants, and if you work with another agency, ask them where the credit report came from. Fraud is rampant (trust us, we've seen it all!), and with California rapidly approaching a "Renter's State" with renters controlling the voting, it is getting harder and harder to evict a bad tenant. Statewide Rent Control, Just Cause Eviction, and Relocation Assistance is HERE. Do not let an unqualifed tenant into your property!

Professional Pet Screening

All pets are screened by our third-party vendor to help eliminate 'fake' service animals and problem pets. Prospective pets will get a "PawScore" of 1-5 paws to help you assess risk.

Up-to-Date, Detailed Leases

Our leasing agents are all licensed agents and REALTORS: we conduct all our activities in accordance with State and Federal law as well as the National Association of Residential Property Managers and REALTOR Code of Ethics. Traditional real estate agents who primarily sell homes, or a friend, family member, assistant etc - who all may offer to help you as a favor with the best intentions - historically are prone to multiple State and Federal violations due to lack of education and training, which puts YOU, as the landlord, legally at risk for ALL your representative's actions. FUN FACT: It takes over 1,600 hours to get a Cosmetology License in California. It takes just 135 hours to get a Real Estate license. There is massive difference in quality of agent you choose. Proper property management and leasing training MATTERS.

MVP Club

All our clients gain membership into our unique client appreciation club for access to special events and curated giveaways each month. Past MVP gifts have included Mother's Day orchids + chocolates hand-delivered to a mom of your choice, organic Halloween candy provided for all your trick-or-treaters, an organic juice cleanse in Jan for those New Year's resolutions, a DIY Hot Sauce kit for your summer BBQ's and much more! Invitation-only events have included opportunites like a floral arrangement class with matching botanical cocktails, a holiday-themed mixology class held behind the bar at a local restaurant, a hands-on Brazilian cooking class...and much more! We love getting to know our clients and showing our appreciation in unique ways.

Move In / Move Out Photographed Inspections*

For our management clients, we provide you with the best comprehensive property inspection report, utilizing the latest technology in inspection reporting. Our app produces a detailed report of your property, including usually 50 or more photographs for your reference, allowing us and you to easily compare the condition of the property from when the tenant moved in to them vacating. Once a new tenant moves in, we inspect the property annually (or more as needed). Of course, as every home in unique, owner input on what specific element to inspect or focus on is always welcome. - $495-$795 PER INSPECTION

Annual Property Inspection*

Detailed, annual, on-sight evaluations of your property to review and report on property condition and discuss possible maintenance required or lease violations observed. - $300-$600 PER INSPECTION

24/7 Emergency Maintenance Response*

We have a dedicated 24/7 maintenance hotline and a team of qualified emergency vendors to ensure prompt service 24/7 hours a day 365 days a year to prevent further damage to your property in the event of a real emergency. No more 2am exploding water heater or sewage leak calls for you! - "Manage Magic" - $69.95/month

MVP Club Platinum

Our Platinum level manangement clients are automatically upgraded to our Platinum MVP Club membership. Platinum members get access to enhanced monthly curated gifts (like a bottle of Dom Perignon with last year's Easter basket, or an upgrade to include truffles with last summer's DIY Hot Sauce kit), priority treatment and select invitation-only events available ONLY to MVP Platinum Club members (like a sailing charter around the bay or front row seats and cocktail reception at one of our Landlord Education Seminars). We can't wait to see you at one of our events!

HVAC Protection / Filter Replacement Program

Tenants receive regular shipments with furnace filters to make it easy for them to remember to change the filters. This cuts down on energy costs, reduces fire risk, helps your equipment to last longer and helps SAVE you money on costly HVAC repairs. A dirty air filter is the #1 reason for HVAC failure! - Coming Soon!

*Our Silver Package clients may bundle the three "a la carte" management options into one low monthly cost of $149.

**These "Ultimate Landlord Protection Insurance" Guarantees are provided via Surevestor Insurance. Additional terms apply: You can view key facts here: www.surevestor.com

Additional fees may apply depending on use and the requirements of your property. Please see Property Management Agreement or your contract for more detail.
