Dace Dislere served as property manager for my former home in San Francisco for a period of three years and did an outstanding job in handling everything from finding and selecting tenants to tenant relations to repairs to providing financial statements and the like. My tenants held her in equally high esteem. I highly recommend her and the Progressive Property Group.
I have worked with Progressive Property Group on several occasions. They are not only professional but they know the rental market extremely well and I have and will continue to refer friends and associates to them. They know the SF rental market, respond to my phone calls and have always been there when I needed assistance. TOP NOTCH!
I have worked with two other property management companies in the last 20+ years, and Progressive is simply the best. They take great care of my tenants who, feel they are listened to and get action on their appropriate concerns. Progressive is always there, and details about the properties are addressed expeditiously and professionally. Their monthly and year-end reports are so good, I just hand them to my tax preparer. They are courteous, professional and intelligent. I enjoy working with them and believe they take excellent care of my property.
Great job. Within 3 weekends Progressive had my condo painted, prepped and rented. They stepped up to the task, and did a great job, on a moment’s notice.
As a landlord, I HIGHLY recommend Joe Gillach at Progressive. His advice on getting my house ready to rent was spot on, and voila, he found me the perfect tenants. Joe is thoughtful, professional, responsive and really knows the SF market. I could not have been in better hands.
We were pleased with your outstanding performance. You were helpful to us and the tenants–you worked efficiently, accurately; we will certain keep your company at the top of our list if service is ever required again. We would also recommend your company to others if asked.
I recommended the services of Progressive to one of my real estate client who wanted to rent out his condo. Dace was very prompt and professional in addressing the work that needed to be done and putting the unit for rent. She found tenants in a very short time and I will definitely use her service again in the future.
My rentals are always prepared to show in top notch condition. I have had tenants say that most apartments they see are not nearly as clean and appealing as ours. As a result, we rent quickly and at market rents.
I worked with Joe Gillach to get my Russian Hill condo rented to lovely tenants. They came prepared with financial information packets including credit scores and an obedience certificate for their dog. Joe made the process easy and clear – he has a great communication style and puts everyone at ease. Joe is detail oriented and doesn’t miss a thing in putting together and signing contracts. Not only that, Joe is a San Francisco history buff and knows a lot of fun details about the buildings and neighborhoods.
As an apartment owner in Mill Valley, I highly recommend the professional, competent cost-effective management that I receive from Progressive Property Group. What I like best:
– Statements are timely and complete.
– Their trusted sources of reliable vendors are bonded, licensed and insured.
– My tenants are happy with their services and speedy response.
– My emails and calls are returned promptly.
– When a vacancy occurs, the apartment is quickly refurbished, marketed aggressively and rented to the best candidate after thorough but fast screening.
– With my hectic schedule, I would not continue to be a rental property owner without the knowledgeable staff at Progressive handling the property. Life is better when I let them take the stress out of property ownership.
Finally I’m happy! I have worked with many property management companies in San Francisco and have finally found one that has integrity. I have worked with Dace and Joe for many years now and have nothing but good things to say. I can recommend this company with confidence.
Progressive has been managing my 6 unit building for over 10 years. In that time I have had tenant turnover and the huge task of painting and replacing exterior decks and stairs. The team at Progressive has guided me through these projects and been hands-on in all respects.
Wow – Dace and Progressive have exceeded my expectations. I myself am a full time licensed agent here in the city, and have been in the real estate industry for 12 years. I have worked with hundreds of real estate professionals over the years and I’m picky. When it was time to rent my own place I knew I didn’t have the capacity or expertise in rentals to handle it myself. Enter Dace. Seriously, if you consider the amount of time you save (communication with renters, repair management, showing the property, vetting prospective tenants, answering questions) the property management fee that she charges is a STEAL. DIY rental at your peril! Thank you Dace and Progressive Property Group, you rock!
PPG brought a personal touch and local knowledge that allowed our historic Victorian to generate income without a worry from us. Without them, we would probably not be in the renting market.
Our house rented within a week, after one open house, with multiple applications from well qualified tenants. Joe was professional, courteous, diligent and very responsive. We are very happy with the outcome. Progressive did an excellent job helping us price the house, market the home, find and vet tenants, and finalize contract and payment.
I ran several sales organizations when I lived in NYC. If I had representatives as professional and attentive as Dace, I could have “phoned” my job in. She was and is a joy to work with.
With Progressive Property Group, we got a true partner who brought a level of concern and attention to detail more typical of an owner than a property manager. They are an A+ team.
Joe Gillach has helped me rent out my place in the Castro twice. Both times he rented it in only a couple of days! His service has been amazing. And, my tenants have nothing but raves about working with him. This last rental he worked with my old tenants on the move out and my new ones on the move in. I just sat back and watched it all happen. He made it simple. I would recommend his services to anyone and will continue to use Joe without hesitation.
We worked with a lot of property managers through the years and I would like to let you know that we’ve found you to be very hardworking, responsible, intelligent and fair. These are all very important virtues, we appreciate having the experience of working with Dace.
As a San Francisco property owner renting, I have worked with a couple different agencies to help find new tenants. Progressive exceeded my expectations. Joe is incredible to work with – very knowledgeable, provides excellent communication and follow-up, and found a high quality tenant in a timely manner. In addition to finding the tenant, he ensures that the transition into the property goes smoothly – meeting with the tenant at the property the day of move in AND providing a list of potential questions to me as the owner to proactively assist the tenant. Very helpful! Especially since we don’t currently live in the Bay Area, it was very comforting to know that our condo was being taken care of by a very professional and responsible team. I highly recommend Progressive to any property owner looking for a renter.
Five star rating. Technical/financial complexities were involved with our account. Dace proved to be knowledgeable, dedicated – and patient. I was very impressed with how much equal care she demonstrated for both landlord and tenant. This reflects honesty and integrity. Dace has always been timely with her responses and accurate with the reports that she submits. Having ownership experience of over 200 units, I can state absolutely that Dace has been the consummate professional!
I have to take a moment to say I think Joe Gillach of PPG is amazing. He came highly recommended by a real estate Agent – Amy Clemens at Zephyr. I needed help and advice on renting my place out. Joe was always attentive, and made you think you were the only client at that moment. He has a world of experience in every aspect of property ownership. He came to look at the place and advised me on what to replace and what to repair based on aesthetics and function for rental or to sell. He also provided a list of vendors who he trusted. They were extremely responsive when I called. Joe is also the type to follow-up. He knows you hired him because you’re too busy and may not know the ins and outs. So he’s always on top of it as well as updates you. He also answers all questions gladly. In fact he encourages you to ask questions. And to top it off, the house was rented in less than 2 weeks on the market (actually it was shorter but the paper work had to clear). Okay, that’s a function of the market. But Joe put the ads in the right places. He chose very nice and responsible renters. People who turned out to be house caring types! All in all, Joe was very professional and personable. He has great taste without being dogmatic. I cannot recommend him enough. 5 stars just isn’t enough to say how much I appreciated his very professional work. You will not go wrong with Joe.
My real estate company provided Progressive’s name as a possible property manager for a recently purchased condo. Dace was responsive from day 1 and very helpful. As an out of town buyer, I was unfamiliar with some of the norms. After viewing the property, Dace was able to recommend an appropriate market based rent and then find suitable renters for the property. I have had a very positive relationship with Progressive and would recommend them highly to others.
In 30 days, Joe had the apartment cleaned, painted, carpeted, everything inside fixed, and rented to a perfect couple at a VERY nice rent. He was a pure pleasure to deal with. He moved quickly and efficiently, communicated well, and was more than friendly to both me and the tenants. Best of all, I trust him completely. He not only had my best interests in mind, but wanted to make sure the experience for the tenants was great, too. Working with him has been a delightful experience. I cannot recommend him enough!
We have worked with Joe to manage our property in San Francisco when we moved overseas. We interviewed several agencies and chose Progressive for their straightforward practices – for both the tenant and the landlord – and ‘roll up your sleeves and get it done’ attitude. We continue to work with them and are completely happy with the process to date. I would recommend working with Joe at Progressive without hesitation.
I contacted Progressive Property Group back in July of 2013 to help me find bona fide tenants for my 2BR/1BA condo in Lower Nob. Within the span of three weeks, Joe coordinated repairs and cleaning with his recommended contractors for a fabulous price and topped the experience off with finding the most awesome of tenants.
All of the correspondence and billing I had with Progressive Property Group and their contractors was conducted via email. This was very convenient for me as I was working out of state at the time. Joe was always prompt in responding to my questions, concerns and many requests.
My experience with Progressive Property Group was absolutely fantastic. I would not hesitate to utilize their services again in the future and would highly recommend them for property management.
Dace and the Progressive Property Group managed my San Francisco house for the last four years while I was living overseas. Dace did an absolutely fantastic job of managing our investment and ensuring that all maintenance issues were taken care of. She also was fantastic at marketing our property and ensuring that our property was rented to great tenants. Progressive Property Group was always professional, responsive, and proactive at looking after our interests as owners. Couldn’t be happier to work with Progressive!
I have worked with Progressive Property Group for several years in a couple of different capacities. In both cases I have found their level of professionalism to be stellar, accurate combined with very honest answers and solutions. I enjoy working with Dace and Joe as they have made my life so much easier. I look forward to a long and very lasting relationship with them.
