Located in the heart of Santa Barbara wine country, Los Alamos offers a nice, easy-going agrarian feel. Vineyards, ranches, and farmland abound—as well as the fodder for legend. Apparently, the hills above Los Alamos were used as a hideout by the legendary bandito Salomon Pico, who is the inspiration behind the film and television character, Zorro. Los Alamos encompasses zip code: 93440.
If you enlist our help in managing your Los Alamos rental (investment) property, then we’ll align our interests with yours and do everything within our power to get you a great tenant – fast. Our goal is to find the tenant(s) who will qualify through our background check and be able to pay his or her rent on time, while also being a responsible steward of your Los Alamos rental property.
As part of our screening process, we look into your prospective tenants’ rental and mortgage histories, employment history , and we verify their identification. We are always able to meet tenants in person before they move into your property. We do this via open house engagements or by planned showings of the property. The goal is to ensure that there will be minimal risk of late payments and virtually zero risk of eviction. Any problems are uncovered up front. For added security, we collect the first and the last month’s rent up front along with the security deposit.
