Should I Sell or Rent My House in Lamorinda? Professional Property Management Advice

When you’re ready to move out of your Lamorinda property, you’ll need to decide whether you want to sell the home and move on completely or hang onto the asset and rent it out instead. We work with homeowners who are downsizing, looking for a larger home to accommodate growing families, and relocating out of the area for work or other reasons. We know that sometimes, it can be difficult to decide what to do with your property.

Working with the group at Stowers Real Estate and Management was a pleasure. The entire team was very knowledgeable and helpful. Moving and everything that goes with it is a very stressful life experience. Thank you to Jody and his team for making this component of my move easier. Based on my excellent experience I have recommended the Stowers team to property owners as well as prospective tenants. I would strongly recommend this team to anyone that is looking for property or looking to rent or sell their existing properties. This is a top notch group.

Many times when you have a good experience you don't write about it. My wife and I have been living in what we believe to be the best neighborhood in the Bay. We no longer want. We have. We are blessed and love our home. Jody and Crissi, you both worked tirelessly with two of the pickiest people on the planet to help us find our home. We gave you a list of desires and we would not settle. We nitpicked so many offerings as if we were first time home buyers, but we knew what we wanted. You two were accommodating and patient. We stayed the course and are now living in Pleasanton, what I feel is one of the best communities in the Bay Area. We can walk to downtown Pleasanton; Church, Farmers Market, Restaurants, Concerts in the park, Fairgrounds, ACE Rail and an array of nightly entertainment in about 15 minutes. During our search you shared the recent history of the zip code and your monetary thoughts about the area for the future. Crissi sent me incredible analysis with graphs on the price points of the homes we were interested in. We shared our ideal spot, you presented every option for me in that desired neighborhood we wanted as soon as they became available. you were patient with our picky indecisions, but when we wanted this one, we went after it and we got it! We got our home in one of the most competitive markets in a decade. The person we bought the home from was a difficult seller... not the easiest to work with. Still, you met every question we had with professionalism and got us the answers we needed to proceed. We countered below their counter and they accepted! We rented our home back to the seller for a few weeks after close, so I was able to see a side of your property management too. I am a landlord, as a landlord you want your PM to be detailed, tenacious, and quick to respond. To have your interest at heart when communicating and making decisions. Stowers Real Estate rented a home 3 doors down for my neighbor. My neighbors first landlord experience. My neighbor got stern service, a great tenant, fantastic rents better than market, all at reasonable rates. I know as a landlord what I pay for Property Management, I work hard to negotiate my out state Property Management fees, and still pay more than what Jody charges in CA for quality service. Jody, Crissi, keep doing what you're doing, your business will grow because of what you do. All growth comes with a few bumps in the road. So what... It means your growing! A successful business is a growing business. Congratulations Stowers - you two are making the right moves for continued success. I shared all of this - because I believe in you both, and I believe in what you are doing. To a successful and prosperous future for all of us.

Working with Jody and his team was awesome. I had previously self-managed the process of selecting new tenants and it was something I always dreaded. I enlisted Jody and his team to manage this task for me and I can't believe why I didn't do it sooner. They made he entire process so easy and stress free. His staff was very courteous and professional and I had a high degree of comfort throughout the entire process. Highly recommended and I'll definitely be working with them again.
