We are proud to share with you our very successful Pet Program!
Kathleen started this program to create more pet friendly housing for tenants, while also soothing any worries property owners may have about accepting pets.
We meet all pets before they move in. Upon approval, an additional $250 per pet is added to the tenant’s security deposit. Twice a year, a representative from Portola Property Management will complete a visual walkthrough of the home. The tenant fee for this is $50 per walkthrough at a total of $100 per year. It is VERY rare that we find any issues in the home, but if found, tenants must correct it at that time. When great tenants find great pet friendly housing, they tend to stay long term.
We take pride in offering about 50% pet friendly housing!

How to Rent One of Our Properties!
Admin Assistant / Receptionist
Hello, my name is Diana Wilson. Though I grew up in Santa Clara I had often found myself spending most of my time in the surrounding Santa Cruz area. In January of 2018 my son and I had made the move over the hill and became permanent residents of Aptos. In March of 2018, I was honored to have joined the Portola Property Management team as an administrative assistant/receptionist. I have five years of previous experience in property management working as an assistant to property managers as well as a maintenance coordinator. I am furthering my education to advance my career in the property management field. While we are talking about the field, I am also a huge baseball fan. Go Giants!
