Our 8 Property Management “No-Risk-to-You” Guarantees

Advantage Property Management Services (APMS) offers something rental investors won’t get anywhere else in the East Bay—up to 8 Guarantees, depending on the management plan you choose.

You get A Higher Standard in Property Management…Guaranteed.

Owning rental investment property can be a great asset with the right Contra Costa County property management company. You’re working towards regular cash flow as well as long-term return on investment (ROI). It’s hard to find another investment vehicle that provides appreciation as well as tangibility. But, it’s not without risk. Investing in rental real estate requires property owners to embrace a lot of unknowns. That can be scary and it can invite mistakes – unless you’re working with Advantage Property Management Services.

Our guarantees make rental property investing a lot less risky and more profitable, causing you fewer headaches – we guarantee it.

We can help you determine the rent for your investment property in Danville, Dublin, Livermore or the surrounding areas.

One of the best rental experiences we’ve had! We recently moved into our new house and the entire process from viewing the property, the application, and move in was seamless. Denielle is amazing! Not only is she personable and really responsive, but she was also accommodating to our needs and was flexible even when we had to unexpectedly move up our move in date. Our previous property managers were a nightmare to deal with. Finding someone like Denielle at APMS has been a much needed breath of fresh air. I couldn’t recommend them more!

I continue to appreciate the cleanliness of the Hayes apartment complex, in my apartment when I moved in as well as the grounds. It amazes me how well this complex continues to be kept up & everything kept in working order. The on-site staff is very helpful as well as the property management team, and all of my needs for repairs have been addressed within 3 days or less. Tenants are respected & all laws relating to tenants are followed well.

Paige was a great trusted partner to help us rent out our property in San Ramon. She was quick to catch an issue with an initial applicant who did not meet APMS's standards for tenants, and they found a great family after that. Paige was also amazing in helping us navigate a tricky situation when we needed to sell our property while the tenants were still there. She handled the conversations with both the tenants and the buyers, and we were able to successfully sell the property in the middle of the pandemic and still allow the renters to stay in the home until the end of their lease. I would highly recommend Paige to anyone who needs a property manager.

I'm writing this review on behalf of my mother who really had a wonderful experience working with this group, especially Said Sanchez. He was so responsive, very professional and understanding. Though my mother ultimately didn't go with the property, Said was continuously friendly and helpful, continuing to send other properties that would meet her criteria.

APMS was a fantastic property management choice for us during these pandemic times! Russ, Makayla and Paige (who is our account manager), were very professional, data oriented, considerate and patient in answering all of our queries and addressing most of our concerns. From our property listing to a successful tenant application, it took only 3 days and the entire experience was a breeze - I would be very remiss if I did not reiterate that this was during COVID-19 and that it would not have been possible, had it not been for Paige's excellent detail oriented handling of our account! We eagerly look forward to working with Paige and APMS in the years to come!

I contacted Russ when my old tenant was 4 months overdue in rent. Russ and Michelle took over the property management and worked with the tenant to put together a payment plan. When we ran out of all choices, they helped through the eviction process. Needless to say, the property was in terrible shape after eviction. Michelle arranged with contractors to bring the property back to rentable condition and rented out during the middle of the COVID lock down. In a short amount of time, we used many of their services and extremely pleased with the way things worked out. Thank you, Michelle and Russ.

I have been a resident under Advantage Property Managment services for a little over 3 years now as a resident and I can say that the quality of services has been top notch! Advantage offers clear communication to their residents and have easy to use portals for rent payments, service request and lease documentation. The few times I have needed maintenance services, my request were responded to quickly (most time’s less than 24hrs) and the issue was handled correctly the first time. My contact Paige - is always very responsive and kind when I speak to her which makes communication very pleasant. I have dealt with other services in the past and not all interactions have been great, however Advantage has been great and I would highly recommend their services.

My husband and I contacted Advantage after a friend of ours highly recommended their services to us. They have been very professional to work with, and responsive to our questions and concerns. We had to move out state for work within a short frame of time, and they did their best to get our home prepared and rented out during a time when the Covid-19 outbreak was at its peak. They continue to answer our questions promptly and give advice to us as first-time landlords. Thank you, Russ and Michelle. We appreciate you and definitely recommend your services to all our friends!

Russ (owner) and Paige (my account manager) are very detail-oriented, responsive and personable. During the initial property assessment, Russ went over the leasing process, analytical data for rent estimation and roles and responsibilities of APMS. The information was very helpful for a first time landlord like myself and Russ did a great job answering all my questions/concerns. My wife and I were able to put our anxiety aside and believed we were in good hands with APMS. And we were right about it! In about a month, my condo was rented out, which was surprisingly fast considering Jan/Feb are typically more challenging to rent out a property. I highly recommend APMS!
