Tenants are eager to rent a home leased by Foundation Homes. Here’s what Oksana had to say about leasing a San Rafael home with us:

"We have been renting from Foundation Rentals and Relocation since 2013 and worked primarily with Michael Kass. He is exceptional! Highly professional, very knowledgeable, always had our best interests in mind, and truly cared about our well being. I was particularly impressed with his super efficient approach when a couple of our appliances needed replacement. He had a broken air conditioning unit replaced in a matter of days!!! Can't say enough good things about Michael. It was a pleasure working with him!”

San Rafael investors like Marie work with us for years because we’re proactive with maintenance and quick to provide peace of mind:

"I have been a client of Foundation Homes International for a few years, and have nothing but good things to say about the company, and particularly Michael Kass. I can vouch for everything positive said in other reviews: professional, efficient, reliable, responsive, etc. I had been a landlord in the past, and do not have the fortitude for it. It can be a very demanding and difficult job, especially with new laws being enacted. Foundation gives me peace of mind. They are great with landlords and tenants alike. One of the features of Foundation I appreciate the most is how they stay on top of home maintenance, and they always have the best referrals to get the projects done quickly and expertly. That's a huge burden taken out of my life knowing that my home is being well maintained and cared for. Michael Kass has always been a pleasure to work with. He goes above and beyond to make all his clients happy. He's hard working, kind, and knows his stuff! I would definitely recommend Foundation Homes International for all your property management needs."

"My husband and I have lived in San Rafael for the past few years. Our last landlord was not very responsive nor helpful. We are both full-time working parents with 2 young children, so it's critical that our home is comfortable, safe and taken care of. Michael Kass at Foundation Rentals is an excellent property manager. He has been super responsive, professional and helpful. Our move was as seamless as it could be given his attention to detail and being a great communicator. I would highly recommend Foundation Rentals & Relocation to anyone needing to move and ensure a smooth and professional experience.”
