Does Your Small Business Fear Security Breaches, Malware, and Ransomware?  Silicon Valley Systems Has the Solutions for You

Written by Dave Roberson on . Posted in Landlords, Non-Owner Occupied Properties, Property Management, Uncategorized

With today’s ever-changing IT environment of ransomware and viruses, of security breaches and ever-increasing threats to your personal and business data, it is more important than ever to have a professional and reliable data backup system in place.  However, it is no longer good enough to just have a local backup solution that copies all your data to a hard drive connected to your computer.  Ransomware will, during infection, not only encrypt your data but any drive connected to that computer.  It will also try to infect any network shares on your local network.  Another problem with a local backup is preparing for disaster recovery. As we have seen very recently with the fires in Marin, everything can be destroyed, including your backups if they are kept in the same building as your computers.

Quality Residential Cleaning Services are Few and Far Between, But We Found One

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.
