"I was introduced to Michael Kass at Foundation Homes when I saw an apartment I was interested in leasing. Right from the start, working with Michael was great! He was very responsive, knowledgeable about the leasing process, and able to answer all my questions! I like that they use automated texting to schedule viewing appointments, including reminders and a link to the application process. It was very easy overall! I would recommend working with Michael and Foundation Homes to anyone interested in a modern approach to leasing!"

We’ll ask for a few details about your rental home, such as its precise location, its square footage, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms it has, and what kind of condition you’d describe it as being in. Don’t take a guess at how much you think your property will rent for; get an accurate and reliable rental analysis from your Marin County expert property managers.

Katherine C. worked with us to rent a Mill Valley home and found our team to be positive:
"My family recently rented a home in Mill Valley, where Foundation Homes represented the homeowner/landlord. We've been long-time renters in Marin (15+ years) and have been shown several properties over the years by Christopher and his team, although this is our first rental with them. In our experience, Foundation Homes exceeds all expectations for professionalism, timeliness, and responsiveness. From the outset, Victor Mitrani was very professional and informative about the property, while also upfront with the requirements for a successful application. He and Christopher worked with us on our application, to ensure that we were attractive tenants to our prospective landlords. Their attention to detail speaks to their high level of service and their reputation. While the application process and minimum requirements with Foundation Homes are much more rigorous than with other brokers, it's obvious that this process is designed to ensure a successful match between landlord and tenant. Our experience with Victor and Christopher has been great. We would not hesitate to rent another of the properties they represent. There's a reason that most of the higher-end rentals throughout Southern Marin are listed with Foundation Homes: they do the job right. A quick comment about the negative reviews posted by other people: In a business where there are very often disputes and legal actions between landlords and tenants, Foundation Homes clearly works to minimize these issues. It seems that the negative reviews directed toward Christopher have come mostly from disgruntled tenants who left rentals in measurably worse condition than they found them. It's just the nature of the rental business that those who are called out for their actions are angry at being held accountable.”

"My family recently moved from out of state. We only had two days to find a rental house. We are so fortunate to have found Christopher Barrow. Originally, we had not considered living in Mill Valley, but Christopher opened our eyes to this fabulous town. He even picked me up at the ferry one day to show me a property that I wanted to see before making my final decision. Christopher is very responsive, helpful, knowledgeable, friendly, and doesn't make you feel pressured at all. My sister is looking for a rental property in Marin and I recommended working with Foundation. I am confident that Christopher can find her a great place as well!”
