Nancy has had a positive experience working with the Foundation Homes team:

"I spent almost two years remodeling and upgrading my family home on Belvedere Island after inheriting it. I never intended to sell it because it serves me better as an asset with great revenue (and I inherited my folks' Prop. 13 tax status). I listed it with Christopher after noting that their company [Foundation Rentals] was the most prominent for high-end rentals in Marin via search engines on both Google and Craigslist. Although I've owned income property (units) for the last 30 years, finding and handling tenants at the high-end level was daunting to me. Christopher has found me two exceptional families so far; one who took the house furnished and the other needed it unfurnished - both for well over $5,000 per month. The contracts he provided had much more extensive liability coverage for me than my standard rental agreements - similar to a seller's contract - full of disclosures and detailed assignments of responsibility. The degree of thoroughness in the background check, the negotiation of the lease stipulations and the professionalism with which Christopher finalized the deals was exceptional. I have just recommended Foundation Rentals to a close friend whose situation is similar to mine, except that her [mother's] home has stalled in the current real estate market, driving the price down to an unacceptable level. It is a great alternative to selling, especially when you have Christopher and his team watching your back.”

Steve feels good about his experience with Foundation Homes, writing:

"Michael Kass was very knowledgeable, professional and a pleasure to work with.”

"I rented with Foundation for one year before I purchased a home. Foundation Rentals has nice homes for rent, and they take great care to ensure that both the tenant and landlord preserve the condition of the home. I worked with Michael Kass to rent the home initially, and then with Victor Mitrani at the end of the lease. They were both professional and responsive to fixing issues that came up, and making sure that I was comfortable with the process. Upon move out, I received my deposit back promptly. I would highly recommend renting a property with this company.”
