ABC Associates has offered rental property
management services in Northern California since 1979. The areas serviced
are Northern Santa Clara and Central San Mateo counties. Many of our
listings have traditionally been in the Foster City and San Mateo areas.
We provide services for small apartment
complexes and townhouses only - we do not manage single family
Property owners pay all ABC Associates
fees and commissions. Prospective tenants pay only the $30.00 fee for
a credit check.
We consult with property owners to detemine
how best to market and manage the property, including designing information
sheets and showing the property to prospective tenants. We will prepare
lease documents, move-in information, check credit and background information
for prospective tenants.We encourage owners to meet with the tenants
during the final walk through of the property.
We will handle the day-to-day maintenance
of the property including assessing needs for service and meeting with
contractors and service personnel to do routine maintenance on the property.
In some cases we are able to correct small
problems without contracting for outside services. We have a large list
of service providers and contractors that are familiar with the properties
We will handle collecting the monthly
rents and issue payments to property owners and service companies.
We will not manage
properties that currently have pets or where pets are allowed.
(ie. No birds, cats, dogs, hamsters, not even if the pet is, as one
prospective tenant described their canine, 'just a small sheep dog'.)
Many of our clients have used our
services for a long time, and we can supply property owners with a list
of current and past clients.
The Housing Market...
The demand for housing
in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties has been tremendous. We try to
keep our web site listings up-to-date, but
you may want to call before downloading and filling out
an application to rent a property listed.
