Placing High Quality Sonoma Tenants

Our idea of a high quality tenant is someone who can be trusted to pay rent on time and take good care of your Sonoma investment property. But, that’s not enough when we’re screening and placing tenants for you. We’re also looking for responsive communication from our residents as well as a willingness to respect the lease agreement and stay in place for the long term.

Redwood Residential Helps You Avoid Terrible Tenants

Have you ever been stuck with a bad tenant? It’s frustrating and expensive. You don’t need to be stuck worrying that rent won’t be paid or concerned about the damage that may be done to your property. Our screening is rigorous and consistent, to ensure there are no fair housing mistakes. You won’t have to worry about the tenants in your property. Not only will we screen them well, we’ll also develop and maintain positive working relationships that lead to better retention rates and better rental experiences.

Consistent Tenant Screening

Screening tenants is actually pretty risky in California. There are state, local, and federal laws that are easy to miss. We keep you compliant with all fair housing laws.

Mistakes are expensive when it comes to screening and placing tenants. You need to understand Section 8 requirements and how closely you can look at a criminal record. The owners who partner with us during the leasing process leverage our knowledge and our consistent process.

Don’t invite a tenant dispute or a fair housing inquiry. Let our talented and knowledgeable team at Redwood Residential screen and place your enants.

Written rental criteria is provided to every individual before they complete an application for your property. This saves time and keeps our process transparent.

Protecting your Sonoma Investment

Placing high quality tenants in your rental property protects your Sonoma investment. You won’t have to worry about the home being damaged beyond normal wear and tear. You won’t have to worry about unauthorized pets or people. We’re careful and we’re detailed when we dig into a tenant’s background.

Pets are screened closely, too. We know the difference between a pet and a service animal and a companion animal.

Our screening process starts here:

  • Nationwide eviction check

  • Review of credit history and report

  • Employment and income verification

  • Verifying rental history

Get reliable screening data and enjoy a better rental process.

Moving in Sonoma Tenants

With a tenant approved for your rental home, it’s time to prepare for the move-in. We will collect the security deposit, first month’s rent, and any other move-in funds like pet fees.

Most important is the move-in inspection. This creates a documented condition report that establishes what the property looked like before tenants took possession.

It’s important that your tenant understands the expectations and responsibilities of the lease agreement. So, we discuss it in detail with your new tenants. We welcome their questions and we highlight some of the most important parts of the lease, including the rent collection policy and the process for reporting maintenance.

You hire professional Sonoma property managers to provide a stress-free, easy leasing process that meets the needs of you and your tenants. We deliver that and more.

Recently needed Christine, my property manager, to intervene with my tenants to remind them about an HOA violation. She handled this quickly and professionally. She has a good working relationship with me and my tenants. We are well-taken care of.

Quick efficient and great at communicating. I don’t live close to my property so it’s great to know it’s in capable hands. Rates are reasonable and they placed someone in the home within a month of it being available to rent.

I’ve had a great experience with RPM. They are quick to respond to all of my maintenance requests. They have gone above and beyond once when I was out of town and had an urgent need to allow a family member access to my home. I’ve had a great experience.

Hi Mike. We've been here a little over a year. Alysha assigned Tony Llamas to do all the repairs here. All I can say is that you're very fortunate to have such a skilled, patient, resourceful, and sincere technician as Tony. I have total confidence in him that repairs will be done properly. He's proved himself time and time again. What a valuable resource you have !!! When Alysha was here, the interaction with Redwood RPM was very personal. We miss that. Has someone else taken her place? Can I reach out to you if need be? We plan on staying on here for the foreseeable future and are very happy with how Redwood RPM has interacted with us in the past, and we look forward to the same mutual cooperation in the future. All the best, Art & Catherine Freeman.
