Portola Property managers were attentive to our needs, and it has been a pleasure working with them during our move in. The house is clean and tidy, A couple of small repairs were needed, and they were performed by a very friendly handyman (Mike). We are very happy in our new home.

I was very happy with the process to get my leaking hot water tank replaced. I was able to do it through the property management website and the job was completed very fast. Communicating with the management company has been an issue in the past when I was applying for my lease but I believe their lack of response was due to them being overwhelmed during COVID.
