Where can I start? From the beginning, Mr. Portales showed professionalism and responded all my questions. I contacted two other professionals but non of them provided a written detailed proposal and marketing plan like Miguel did. From there I knew I was dealing with a true professional. I looked up Miguel online to see who I was about to do business with and I was pleased with what I found about him and all reviews I read from different sites. Once I hired him, he brought his team and got my property ready for market and found me a good family to rent my home in less than two weeks! Now I am looking to purchase another rental and he is also helping me with the purchase. I recommend Mr. Portales for all your real estate needs. John C.

When it comes to rental properties you need someone that knows the market, has a great marketing plan, leases properties quickly and knows the laws as they change. We highly recommend Miguel Portales for any of your tenant placements. He helped us get renters in our home in less than three weeks.
