What is Most Important to You as a Residential Rental Property Investor in San Ramon?

Knowing where to buy investment property in the East Bay is an important part of your strategy. This market is unique; prices are high, but so are rents. Additionally, the tenant pool offers stable renters with good jobs and financial security.

The Advantages of Hiring a Professional Property Management Team in San Ramon

No one can successfully manage a rental property alone. Even the best property owner or the most experienced investor still needs a team of key professionals with specific areas of expertise to call on for help, questions, and problem solving.

We just moved in and it’s been smooth and easy. Russ and Michelle have been great. They are very responsive and make all the paperwork very easy to get through. My husband and I have really enjoyed working with Russ and Michelle and would definitely recommend their services.

Michelle an Paige were absolutely wonderful, responsive and compassionate! I highly recommend APMS. From the tenant side, these young ladies were so efficient. We were sent documents quickly and I absolutely felt a priority in this situation. After signing the lease we were also provided with moving tips and phone numbers to local services and utility's. This was by far a superior service provided in a hot market. Kuddo's to you girls!

To APMS, &Staff Michelle & Russ Crowley are the Greatest rental services for both tenant and owners. As owners of a condo in San Ramon valley, we find them to be exemplary, professional, reliable and on top of it all.. We have been clients of theirs for 8 yrs. When our home burned down in the Sonoma Wild Fires, Oct 17. APMS was open to any questions we had in needing a rental until our rebuild. Even tho Sonoma was not in their rental community. They are awesome and their staff gets it done. ! Sincerely, Darlene Garey Property Owner and Tenant

I have had wonderful experiences with AVPM. They provide excellent customer service. We had our heater go out and they sent a technician as soon as they possibly could. When they weren't able to come out for a few days Michelle offered to drop off a portable heater to keep us warm!! I love the online portal - it makes it easy to pay rent as well as log service requests.

My experience with Advantage Property Management has been excellent. Many property management companies can be unresponsive-if you can even get a hold of a person to speak to. As a renter, if you have an emergency sometimes you want to talk to a real person! Renting under Advantage I have found everyone to be very personable and responsive. I have dealt with Michelle, Victoria, and Paige individually and they have always been helpful, compassionate and eager to find solutions to problems. The whole team works together and communicates. In this day and age customer service and clear communication is very hard to find and I feel that Advantage Property Management delivers on all fronts.

When our dryer broke, Paige and Victoria were very helpful with ordering and scheduling the delivery of our dryer. When the delivery was late - due to Lowe's - they kept us updated and fixed the scheduling error promptly. The new dryer works great!

There is a lot of documents to review in a short period of time. The lease contract is about 50 pages in small font, it must be reviewed within 24 hrs. After doing that, we received around 20 more documents the next day (HOA rules, handbook, CA hazard/environment rules, etc.).
