WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT US
LOCAL PROPERTY OWNER
I've worked with MPM for almost a year now for my rental property and have been very pleased with my experience so far. Mike is great at taking care of all the paperwork, rental postings, potential tenant screenings, etc and I never had to worry one bit about the whole process of finding a tenant. He does the research on different vendors so that we have options to chose from (ie. cleaning services, etc). For any issues reported by the tenant, Mike has always quickly communicated this to me so that we can make a decision on how we can quickly resolve the problem.
Mike is very professional and a pleasure to work with, I definitely recommend MPM for any residential property management!
For three years Metro Property Management has been taking care of my twelve unit apartment building and two rental houses in San Jose. I've been very pleased with their service and have been able to count on them to find good tenants and keep the properties in good shape. They stand behind maintenance work and their rates are not exorbitant. Communication is good and I receive monthly accounting statements. My tenants have also been pleased with Metro responsiveness to their maintenance requests. Metro developed a plan to upgrade the apartment and increase rents. The building is more appealing now which has reduced tenant turnover. I am please to provide my comments about Metro Property Management.
OUT OF STATE OWNER
I had lived in my home in Willow Glen since 1985. As 2011 began so did the changes to our lifestyle begin and the move to a home out of state.
Mike Sarvis, Metro Property Mgmt. Co., was recommended to manage our home as a rental. From the moment I met Mike I realized that he cared about us personally.
Prior to the home being rented, Mike came to my home to water and weed the gardens, and please note, he said he wouldn't accept management fees until the house rented. He made all necessary arrangements to showcase our home in the same quaint manner that we had treasured for 26yrs. Mike's a tremendous communicator and has this incredible insight to my needs. He NEVER assumes what I expect, He ALWAYs calls to discuss options. Trust is important to me. Metro Property Mgmt. Co. provides me the utmost trust and honesty.
Mike Sarvis is the consummate professional who truly has dedicated himself to the best interest of not just me but of all parties concerned.

Metro Property Management has been an absolute life saver for me. I have 2 rental properties that are now in their hands and I can sleep soundly. For years I rented the units myself only to find myself with lousy tenants who not only damaged the property but also failed to pay rent multiple times!! When I was in between tenants a friend of mine recommended I try a property management company and gave me Metro’s information. I called them and the owner came out and met with me. He explained all their services and within a month had both the units rented to extremely qualified tenants. That was over 6 months ago. Tenants are still there and not one rent payment has been missed. I couldn’t be happier.
I have known Metro PM for a long time. Metro has been managing a fourplex. Mike's Masters Degree coupled with upper management experience in both commercial and residential makes for great success to the property owner as well as the occupant. I would recommend their services.

Metro Property Management is a God-send. As a condo-owner with very little time on my hands, I am thrilled that Mike takes the worry out of renting out my home. Did I mention he handles everything with a smile? From rental interviews to getting an appliance serviced, he tackles it all. I heartily recommend this gem of a company!
OUT OF COUNTRY OWNER
We have chosen to work with Metro Property Management to manage the rental of our main residence property in San Jose, while moving overseas. We have been very impressed by the Professionalism and Market know-how of Mike Sarvis, especially going through the preparation of the property as well as the screening of the prospective tenants. Working with Mike at MPM has allowed us to find tenants in a timely manner, have ongoing valuable feedback on various issues. We are definitely pleased with our choice and would recommend MPM for Property Management services.

"Moving out of my family home and putting it up to rent was a difficult thing to do. I was fearful someone would move in and not take care of it the way my family did. I had no worries once Metro Property Management started handling everything. They found great tenants and were always there if I had any concern about my house. Being across the country in Florida, I was able to sleep at night knowing my house was in good hands."
Metro Property Management treats our property as if it were their own. They protect the value of our properties through proactive management. They thoroughly screen applicants and do their due diligence of perspective tenants up front to minimize problems down the line.
Metro Property Management believes in building a partnership with property owners in order to foster a long term mutually beneficial relationship. In the past we have found ourselves “managing our property managers”, that is not the case with Metro Property Management – they know what they are doing and keep you apprised and informed along the way. We are very happy with Metro Property Management and sure others would be too!

Mike Sarvis at Metro Property Management has been managing my property in San Jose over a year now. I am very satisfied with the service I've received. Since I live in San Diego it is very hard for me to do hands on property management myself. I've had bad property managers in the past and now I feel I've got one of the best!

"I would recommend Metro Property Management for anyone in need of professional property management services. Mike and his team are very professional, and having them manage my property has given me tremendous peace of mind. When it came time to rent out my condo, Mike made suggestions to make the apartment more appealing to renters. He also secured the handymen and vendors to do any of the work that he recommended, and made sure the work got done satisfactorily and quickly. He always submitted to me several bids, and informed me of his previous experiences with any of the vendors and repair companies. Mike also strictly screens all applicants, and has set criteria that he follows to ensure we only rent to high quality tenants. If any problems arise during the tenancy, or with my property, Mike has always taken care of the issues, informing me of each step along the way to resolution. He has taken full responsibility for everything that happens, and professionally resolves everything for me. His accounting is easy to understand, and his payments to me are timely. He is very attuned to the local real estate market, and has provided me with information from time to time to keep me informed as well. I am lucky to have found Mike and Metro Property Management, as they have continue to exceed my expectations with their diligent and focused work."
Perhaps it's not until you have so many bad property managers that you can really appreciate a good one. I have worked with property managers in Florida, Virginia, and California. Of all these, I can say that Metro has been absolutely the best. Service is friendly and efficient. Repairs are speedy, prices are affordable, and payments are prompt. Mike Sarvis lends his personal touch to all matters, and he is easy to reach by phone or email. I feel confident that even though I am 3,000 miles away, my apartment complex is in good hands. Metro is a real pleasure to work with.

I think you are so excellent as a property manager I am so pleased because you keep me informed about the house, and the financial statements too as well as when I was in another state. You are the best overseer ever I had in the past and present. It is a honestly statement of me saying this word.
OUT OF STATE OWNER
I dealt exclusively with Mike Sarvis when recruiting Metro Property Management to rent my house in San Jose. His professional manner and personable demeanor instilled the confidence necessary in me to hire Metro Property Management to handle the rental obligations of my family’s former home. I was very pleased with the decision as my house was rented in a short time to a well qualified couple. I receive my rent checks in a timely manner every month around the same date and receive my end of the year statements promptly in January. Thanks Mike!
LOCAL OWNER OF SINGLE FAMILY HOUSE
There is a lot of uncertainty when becoming a landlord for the first time. The thought of getting the maintenance request call and collecting rent was not the most appealing concept for us, especially for my wife. But after speaking to metro property management we decided to go for it. Starting with the initial consultation with Sandra we were put at ease, knowing that she had excellent experience not only with how the rental market works but also in dealing with tenants and maintenance contractors.
Sandra was exceptionally helpful with her attention to detail. Her sensitivity to the needs of our tenants made marketing our property a breeze. We were blessed with great tenants, after only a few weeks of the rental being on the market. This is a landlords dream come true. We also appreciated mike's knowledge of the current real estate market and rental market. They were always prompt in answering our questions.
After 14 months of mike and Sandra managing our property, we have no regrets in our decision to be a landlord. In the future, we are absolutely certain that we will use Metro to assist in our business rental needs. Personally, i do not understand how anyone could go without using Metro to handle details & rental legalities. Metro property management made a very complex process simple for us.

My reputation and livelihood are at stake, so I am very particular when making recommendations about service providers to my clients. As a real estate agent with Alian Pinel Realtors, I strongly recommend Metro Property Management and its founder Mike Sarvis to my clients. I have known Mr. Sarvis professionally for over six years and have witnessed his dedication to providing clients with comprehensive real estate and management services. Mr. Sarvis’ team of professionals provides counsel and guidance to clients so they may achieve their real estate investment objectives. He does this by developing a customized financial plan that maximizes a property’s rental income while tightly controlling operating expenses. What distinguishes Metro Property Management from it competitors is their outstanding commitment to customer service. They recognize that a financial plan is meaningless without being responsive to both the needs of their clients and their tenants. Once again it is without hesitation that I offer my recommend of Metro Property Management.

OUT OF AREA CONDO OWNER
Using Metro Property Management have proven to be a great decision. I've used their service for renting out and maintaining my condo. They've often gone out of their way to make life easier for me. When I moved out of my condo before renting it out, Mike even saved some of the stuff that I had forgotten during the move just in case I needed them. They care about both my interests and the interests of my tenant, which is very important to me. Metro Property Management's extra care on top of their impeccable professionalism has made me worry-free and that's why I would highly recommend them if you want to rent out your property.
