Castro Valley is Calling

Don Guillermo Castro was given a 28,000-acre land grant in 1840. This included land southeast of Lake Chabot, a land we call Castro Valley today.

These days, many residents in Castro Valley commute to other areas in the Tri-Valley. However, many other residents enjoy working for the healthcare industry. Regardless of where they work, the residents love to make the most of the great outdoors and artistic hotspots in and around Castro Valley.

APM handles all service issues so quickly and professionally! A leaky water heater was replaced the next day by a wonderful plumbing company that left the project so neat and clean. And APM always follows up on all requests before and after to make sure that you are satisfied.

From the very first day I met Paige C. I felt I was in good and trusted hands. The most important thing for every renter is responsiveness of the property management team. No issues was ever too small for the APMS team. Their attention to details and customer service is superb. They always follow all the safety protocol, especially during the pandemic.

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.

I have lived at the Hayes Avenue apartments in Livermore for one year. I have been impressed with how welcomed I have felt, how quickly any issues with my apartment have been addressed, how quiet & safe it is, how appealing it is inside & on the grounds, and how pleasant other tenants are. I am very glad to call this home!

Russ (owner) and Paige (my account manager) are very detail-oriented, responsive and personable. During the initial property assessment, Russ went over the leasing process, analytical data for rent estimation and roles and responsibilities of APMS. The information was very helpful for a first time landlord like myself and Russ did a great job answering all my questions/concerns. My wife and I were able to put our anxiety aside and believed we were in good hands with APMS. And we were right about it! In about a month, my condo was rented out, which was surprisingly fast considering Jan/Feb are typically more challenging to rent out a property. I highly recommend APMS!

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

We've been in our rental home going on 8 years and Advantage Property Management company has been great! Always quick to respond and never cut corners with any service or maintenance issues. Staff is friendly and considerate to our needs/concerns. When our heater wasn't working during one of the coldest weeks in the winter, they dropped off and picked up a space heater for us. From a renters' perspective, we are very happy with APMS.

Advantage Property Management Services has provided outstanding and great service to me as a property owner since switching over from another management company mid-way through 2016. They are highly professional, provide timely and rapid responses to all questions and issues, they have procured an excellent tenant (who they are there for when needed as well), and they have an excellent fee structure. If you are considering hiring professional property management services from the owner side, you would do well to give strong consideration in your decision making to hiring Advantage Property Management Services.

I was referred to Russ and APMS as we were looking for a property management company for our property. Russ came out and explained what APMS could provide as well as a lot of market information for our area. We had also brought out another management company for a quote and Russ blew them away. We ended up going with APMS and they worked hard to get our property ready, listed, and rented out in short period of time. Since its been rented, Paige has been quick to communicate any issues or questions we have had. I would certainly recommend them to anyone else looking for a full property management company.
