Zenplace Property Management has done an incredible job in managing our properties. They came on board in a super tight time window, put in a ton of extra effort, and got all our properties transitioned smoothly to their property management team. To say they've gone above and beyond is a huge understatement. Zenplace's team especially has been a pleasure to work with. The team is incredibly polite, professional, experienced, and is always willing to offer suggestions on how to deal with various issues. I have worked with several property management companies in the past, and Zenplace Property Management is by far the best. If you have the opportunity to work with Zenplace and their team, I can not recommend them highly enough!

I hired Rick Rodriguez to rent a new home I purchased in Hayward, Ca in 2017. Rick worked tirelessly to find the right tenant for me. It took longer than expected but Rick got me a temporary tenant to help when the house was sitting vacant. Rick transitioned that tenant into a permanent tenant that I am extremely pleased to have living in my rental property. I trust Rick and know I can count on him to take care of my property management needs" Thanks, Christina Wu

Hemlane provided a valuable service for me in 2015, by helping with the screening of potential tenants for my rental properties. As a result of their intuitive and easy to use system, my applicants entered their financial and prior rental history for review purposes. Best of all, the Hemlane team provided extremely valuable guidance for setting key metrics for evaluating applications all with the laws required, and for minimizing the exposure of financial risk. I would strongly recommend Hemlane for any rental property manager who wants a business partner, and not just a vendor, to help them be successful with their end to end operation. They also introduced some very creative enhancements which demonstrate their focus for innovating in their industry they serve. Definite LIKE!

After disappointing experiences with two previous property managers who did not fulfill their promises, it's great to have a property manager who lives up to expectations and does everything that he says he will do. Jonathan Fleming found a new tenant for my vacant condo within a month after I hired him, at a rent over 50% more than what my previous tenant had paid. Jonathan and his staff always respond quickly to my questions. The people he hires for repairs, remodeling and house cleaning all do a first rate job. I'm completely satisfied with the quality of service that have received from Openworld Properties and I have already recommended them to a friend.

I was managing my rental property myself until the issues just became too difficult to deal with myself. I heard of Ziprent through a friend and contacted them. They quickly communicated with my tenant and took over the management of the property. Within a few days, they had all issues resolved and had a lease renewal signed. They pick up the phone everytime I try calling so I know my tenant won't be frustrated with communication if they need assistance. On top of the hands on stuff, through the portal, I can see what's going on with my property at all times. From repairs and invoices to rent collection. I couldn't have asked for a better company to deal with.

Working with Ciro and Hanna was a blast. I needed my apartment cleaned in between Airbnb guests when I was out of town, which is more complicated than regular cleaning - would also need to make sure that all amenities are in place, change bedding, etc. I also wanted to find someone I could just call and talk to, ask about how apartment looks like after first set of guests, etc. I spoke to a couple of companies but it wasn't a good fit because their model is more of a volume and not custom requests, a lot of times I wouldn't be able to talk to the person who'd be actually cleaning, and a lot of times English language skills wouldn't be that good. It might be ok for regular cleaning sometimes but I'm very glad I stumbled upon Hanna and Ciro - great communication skills, very responsive, and most importantly highly intelligent - Ciro would promptly would ask me questions about things I wouldn't' think myself, figure out what to do on his own, we even did a FaceTime to see the apartment after cleaning, and totally a nice finishing surprise - towel swans (see the pic)!! Will definitely be back and highly recommend Ciro and Hanna! Thanks guys

Working with Greg was a pleasure. I knew that I didn’t have to worry about him doing what he said he’d do. He posted my unit for rent on every site, some that I’d never even heard of. He provided resources for me at every turn. I decided to sell my condo instead of renting it out, so I didn’t get to use Greg as a property manager through the entire process, but would use him again in a heartbeat! I can recommend Greg without reservation.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a property management company do?

Property management companies manage the rental of residential homes, apartments, condos, commercial spaces and retail spaces. Property managers can oversee just a single unit or many properties, whether those sites are inhabited full-time or are vacation rentals. A property management company helps a property owner or landlord find tenants; collects rent; takes care of accounting, property maintenance and repairs; handles on-site management; and manages vacation rental check-in and checkout tasks. Although many property owners or landlords successfully manage their own rental real estate, a property management company can help you handle tenant issues and maintenance problems, especially if you are not located in the same city or state. Most property management companies deal with tenants directly, and their tasks include:

  • Marketing the rental property
  • Collecting rent
  • Handling repair problems
  • Responding to tenant complaints
  • Evicting tenants  

A property management company may be a good choice for property owners who have several investment properties, live far away from the rental property, or don’t have time for hands-on management.

Why is property management important?

A property management company can be a landlord’s greatest asset. As a neutral third party, the property manager handles the day-to-day operations of a real estate investment, from a single vacation home to a large apartment building or several rental properties. A property management company can be especially helpful to landlords who own several units and can’t manage each of them individually, or those who live too far from their investment properties to meet with renters and oversee maintenance. Property management is particularly important if your rentals are part of an affordable housing program. To receive financial assistance from the government, the landlord must comply with a complicated set of rules; property management companies should have both experience and expertise in complying with the rules specific to each housing program.

Do property managers need to be licensed?

The licensing requirements for property managers vary from state to state, but many states require property managers to have a real estate broker’s license and in some cases be a legal resident of a state. Property management may not be specified in a state real estate statute, but according to the Institute of Real Estate Management their activities may include advertising the availability of a rental property, discussing a property management agreement with an owner, negotiating leases, showing a rental property and collecting rents.
