PERSONALIZING OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH SONOMA COUNTY RESIDENTS
Responsive and Proactive Maintenance
When there’s a routine maintenance issue that needs a repair or replacement, we want to know about it right away. Deferred and unreported maintenance only increase the risk of expensive repairs and may leave you unable to enjoy your home.
Exceptional Communication and Support
We won’t leave your phone calls unanswered or your messages unreturned. You can expect your property manager and our entire staff to be accessible and available. We’re responsive, and we’ll be willing to talk to you anytime you have a question or a concern.
Service-Oriented Leasing and Management
Our residents trust us to help them settle into a home that’s safe, comfortable, and well-maintained. When you’re looking for a new place to call home, we’ll talk about our available properties and discuss your preferred neighborhoods. We want you to be happy where you’re living
Helping You Find Your New Home
During this initial stage, you’ll attempt to narrow your search, using the internet and other resources.
Narrowing your search even further, you want to physically tour those properties you’re genuinely interested in.
After your research and evaluation, you’ve hopefully found just the right place to call home.
If you’ve provided the information and documentation requested, the application process should be fairly straightforward.
Congratulations! You’ve been informed by the homeowner or property manager that your application has been accepted! But the property may still be marketed as “available for rent.”
Rental contracts typically also function as a receipt for funds received, so it’s expected that the homeowner will require ALL move-in moneys be paid prior to executing the rental contract.
As a real estate broker, I have worked with many management companies, and none compare to DeDe’s Rentals. Keith Becker is a true professional who is a leader and ally in the real estate investment community. His knowledge and enthusiasm for rental properties are beyond compare. All of his associates have the same degree of professionalism. They handle each issue (and there are many) in a fair and timely manner. I would never think of using anyone else for my investment property.
We have been working with DeDe’s Rentals for a few years now. We have been very happy with their level of knowledge and service. Keith has been so knowledgeable, accessible, and responsive. We recently completed an improvement project on our rental unit. We worked with Ariel throughout the process and she was great! She walked us through all our options and saw the process through attentively from beginning to end. We are very happy to be working with Dede’s.
Frequently Asked Questions
After I've paid the costs involved and signed the contract, what happens next?
DeDe’s Rentals manages many, but not all, of the properties that we represent for rental. During the application and acceptance process, we will be sure to indicate whether your continuing relationship is going to be with the staff at DeDe’s Rentals, or whether the property owner will be your primary connection after the contract has been signed. If you will be paying rent to the owner and contacting them for any future concerns, we’ll be certain to provide you with all necessary contact information.
Are there any restrictions on the breed of animals permissible at our rental properties?
Many properties have limitations on the type, size or number of pets that will be considered. Notwithstanding size limitations, there are certain dog breeds that will not be considered. The list of dog breeds that would prevent an applicant from having their pet accepted is consistent with the breeds that would prevent a pet owner from being able to obtain insurance, including the following breeds: Akita, Alaskan Malamute, chow chow, Doberman pinscher, German shepherd, American pit bull terrier, Presa Canario, Rottweiler, Siberian husky, Staffordshire bull terrier and wolfdogs, also known as wolf hybrids. Lists of restricted or “dangerous” dogs also include animals that are mixed with any of the aforementioned breeds.
Are there any restrictions related to non-resident guarantors (ie co-signers)?
It is the discretion of each particular owner whether they will or will not accept cosigners. In those instances when a cosigner is possible, there are certain limitations. The cosigner must be a homeowner, residing in one of a specific group of counties, either in or in immediate proximity to Sonoma County. Cosigner must be able to document sufficient income stability to assure financial ability to pay tenant’s rent without duress. Even in instances where there are multiple tenants in residence, only one cosigner will be considered – in other words, there cannot be two or more cosigners, each responsible for a limited aspect of tenant performance.
How can I arrange to see the interior of any available property?
Many of our properties are now equipped with a high-tech “at your convenience” showing system. With a smartphone and a major credit card, you can enroll through Rently, our affiliate provider. You will receive a special code allowing you one-time access to see the specific property. There are certain properties which do not qualify for Rently, please call our office to schedule viewing of those properties or to obtain more information.
