Portola Hills 2015 Rental Market Recap...

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams CA.BRE# 01395219

As a Realtor in South Orange County, I believe it is important to understand the complete real estate market.  I work with many investor owners in the area who have been long term landlords as well new investors who are looking to expand their real estate portfolio.  In addition, tenant's who have become future homeowners.

When I work with any client, my goal is to always understand their long term vision.   Often times, rentals are an aspect of the business many agents do not like to handle. They are a lot of work and honestly for little pay.   

I view Rentals much differently.   If I want to be your trusted Realtor for life, then that means I handle the majority of your real estate needs, even the ones that "seem to be a lot of work"  Otherwise.. how can I truly be your Real Estate Adviser. 

If you research, you don't read much on the rental market in various neighborhoods. So starting this month... we will begin writing a rental spotlight of the areas we focus in, i.e. Portola Hills, Foothill Ranch, Trabuco Canyon, Mission Viejo, i.e. the Saddleback Valley.

Today's look:   Portola Hills:
