Written by Dave Roberson on . Posted in For Tenants, Landlords, Non-Owner Occupied Properties, Property Management, Silicon Valley Real Estate Investing, Uncategorized

The neighborhood social media site NextDoor and other neighborhood bulletin board sites are constantly bombarded with the question “Can someone please refer a Quality Residential Cleaning Service.”  The fact of the matter is most cleaning services are mismanaged and don’t have employees who are properly trained or supervised.  Even though a company or cleaner may start out doing a good job, inevitably there will come a time when the company disappoints for several reasons.  Searching high and low for several years we used many different services but did not settle on one company until we met Maria Flores of High Quality House Cleaning, LLC in Sunnyvale, CASilicon Valley Property Management Group now uses HQHC exclusively and couldn’t be happier.  In fact, in addition to being a great company HQHC is a Santa Clara County Certified Green Cleaning Company, and they are also a fully sanctioned Woman Owned Minority Business.

Federal_ext panel inspectoinAlthough most people take electricity and electrical systems in rental properties for granted it is important to understand the basics of these items and operations.  We open our garages with automatic openers, we flip on the light switch, we click the television remote, and we expect our food and drinks to be cold each and every time we open the refrigerator.  All of these things we expect to be functioning each time we ask for it, but what is behind the scenes is important to understand.

Stierlin Estates – Mountain View Is Quietly Building a Great Reputation

Written by Dave Roberson on . Posted in For Tenants, Landlords, Mountain View, Non-Owner Occupied Properties, Property Management, Silicon Valley Real Estate Investing

Stierlin_House 2Anyone taking their first drive through Stierlin Estates Mountain View will often take it slow, not just for the quaint neighborhood view, but because they have no choice. The sleepy neighborhood of Stierlin Estates was designed with a zig-zag road pattern, which helps keep drivers with a heavy foot in check. Ask the residents about their quiet little corner of Mountain View and they’ll tell you they like it that way.  Beyond creating a traffic calming road network, you can’t actually drive “through” the area. The roads loop around with no direct access from one highway to another. This all but eliminates commuters driving through the neighborhood.

Life in the Monta Loma neighborhood continues to be shaped by the original suburban planning that formed this community.  Importantly, Monta Loma is located in one of the more desirable Silicon Valley enclaves, and is at the door-step of Google, Inc.  The central location and the ease of access to a majority of the peninsula, Stanford University, and other bay area cities provides support for Monta Loma’s desirability.
