Testimonials

I highly recommend working with Brandon Kley. Brandon went out of his way to show us our rental home in Palo Alto after we drove down from San Francisco, but missed the open house. We instantly fell in love with the house. He also took extra time to show us another property he thought we might be interested in. Brandon kept us informed on the process, and when we were lucky enough to be offered the rental, Brandon was very helpful in finalizing the lease. Becca E.
I engaged Lily Pizano to help me rent an office that my family owns in Palo Alto. She found a tenant in ONE day. Beyond that, she was extremely thorough in vetting the tenant, making sure that everyone was well-informed, and ensuring that the transaction went smoothly. Her communication was always clear and timely. She gave me advice above and beyond what was required which I found useful and thoughtful. She has my highest recommendation! Nob T
