Owners' Frequently Asked Questions

Owner FAQs

How do you market my rental home
We feature all of our available listings on our website, and we use other online platforms such as Zillow, Trulia, Craigslist, Realtor.com, Google, Hotpads, and more than 50 other rental sites. We also have excellent relationships with other property managers, real estate agents, and relocation companies to help us fill your vacancy quickly.
How do you choose tenants for my property
We screen all applicants consistently and carefully. Our process is rigorous and includes credit checks, criminal background checks, and a review of any prior evictions or unlawful detainers. Then, we verify income and employment and conduct rental reference checks with current and previous landlords. The result is a well-qualified tenant with a great track record.
How do you collect and pay me rent?
Our innovative online payment system allows us to collect rent on time from tenants every month. Once we have the payment, we will send you your rent electronically, eliminating the hassle and wait of paper checks. We’ll also provide you with accounting statements that carefully document all the income and expenses associated with your property.
How do I know my property is in good shape?
We conduct thorough move-in and move-out inspections and take more than 75 pictures. You’ll be able to log onto your online portal and see inspection reports, review maintenance requests, and check invoices. Our routine and emergency maintenance responses are fast and thorough, and we always keep you informed of what’s going on at your property.
What if I’m unhappy?
We are so confident that you will be satisfied with our services that we offer a 90-day guarantee. If you are not satisfied with our services we will provide you with a full refund of your management fees.

Stowers Real Estate John
June of 2018 the water line of the refrigerator ruptured while the tenants were gone. Upon their return home they found water in the kitchen, dining room, front room, and hallway. They called Jody and he called Service Masters. I had just renovated this property and live out of the area and the thought of having to do it all over again was very distressing, to the point that I eve considered selling the property as is. Jody stepped up and told me that he would be willing to oversee the renovation process and I wouldn’t have to deal with the contractors, or commute back and forth. Jody called me to discuss colors, materials, etc for paint, cabinets, carpeting, and laminate, and I only went to the house maybe four times just to see how it was going. Jody and his team knocked it out of the park and I decided against selling it at a lost. Jody is a hands on property manager and he will do as little, or as much as you request. Exceptional Service!

Stowers Real Estate did a great job getting my mom's house ready for rental. If I had any questions for Jody, he usually answered his phone and took care of my question right then or got back to me in a timely manner. Cynthia was great with getting the right people there to take care of any necessary jobs, and I usually got any of my questions answered in a timely manner.

Stowers Real Estate John
In the summer of 2016 I completely renovated a residence in Danville and decided to take a chance on having a property management company oversee its operation as I live in the East Bay. June of 2018 I received a text from Jody that the tenants had been away on vacation and upon returning and entering the residence found about 3” of water on the kitchen, dining room, living room and main hallway caused by a ruptured refrigerator water line. Jody advised that he had already turned off the water, and attempted to get as much water out of the residence as he could and assisted in finding the tenants temporary quarters. Jody had already contacted Service Masters to come out to mitigate the damage which was extensive. Due to my age I told Jody that I didn’t think I could go through another renovation and actually considered selling the property “As Is”. Jody stated the he would be happy to oversee the renovation project and the he would follow it through to its completion saving me the time and trouble of finding contractors, and the commute time back and forth to Danville. For the next 60 days Jody took this project on, calling me when necessary to discuss various options etc, saving me hundreds of hours commuting and meeting with contractors, and the property was returned to its pristine condition. Jody and his team far exceeded my expectations and I can not express how grateful I am for their assistance.
