At Collins Property Managers, we offer several levels of service to those who wish to rent out or sell their property.

Careful Tenant Screening
We want reliable and qualified tenants just as much as you do, and we pride ourselves on the quality of tenants we are able to attract. Our extensive tenant screening and lease procedures help to ensure this. We do a thorough credit check before the lease is signed. This includes checking history with the credit bureau, verifying employment and checking all appropriate references, including past landlords. We crosscheck landlord references with local property tax records to confirm their legitimacy.
To offer you maximum protection, our leases are based on years of experience and comply with all state and federal laws. Prior to signing the lease, we will prepare a written move-in checklist to document the condition of the property.
Prompt Rent Collections
Firm collection policies and swift eviction in case of a problem spare you from difficult and costly situations. We feel that the collection of rent is one of our most important functions of managing your property.
Monthly and Yearly Statements
Our convenient monthly and yearly statements simplify the job of tax preparation for you and your accountant. Copies of all work orders and receipts are mailed with the monthly statements and additional copies are held in our files.
Maintenance and Repairs
We handle all maintenance requests from tenants utilizing our pool of qualified and reasonably priced service providers. We deal with this daily so we know what repairs should cost and how long they will take to complete. We obtain competitive bids and consult with you prior to any major repairs. We provide emergency Service, When the water heater bursts or the toilet overflows at midnight, we get the call - you get the sleep. We are available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week to respond to emergencies.
Nobody wins when an eviction happens, so it is best to strive for a solution with the tenant. But allowing a habituallv late paying tenant to remain forever in arrears only postpones the inevitable day when they skip out owing you rent, and possibly leaving the property a wreck. Eviction for nonpayment of rent in California is fast and certain when the steps are executed properly. When you hire us to manage your property, we can evict your problem tenant (usually within 3 to 4 weeks) and replace them with a qualified tenant who pays on time.
"They are knowledgeable professionals who looks out for our best interests. They find the right
tenant and are available at all times and answers questions promptly. I recommend to anyone who
is looking for property management."

Palo Alto AREA INFORMATION
Palo Alto's earliest recorded history is recorded from 1769, when Gaspar de Portolà noted an Ohlone settlement. This remains an area of known Indian mounds. A plaque is erected at Middlefield Road and Embarcadero Road to commemorate this area.
The city got its name from the tall landmark Redwood tree, El Palo Alto, which still grows on the east bank of San Francisquito Creek across from Menlo Park. One trunk of the twin-trunked tree can still be found by the railroad trestle near Alma Street in El Palo Alto Park (the other trunk was destroyed during a storm in the late 20th century). There a plaque recounts the story of the Portolà expedition, a 63-man, 200-horse expedition from San Diego to Monterey from November 7–11, 1769. The group overshot Monterey in the fog and when they reached modern-day Pacifica they ascended Sweeney Ridge and discovered San Francisco Bay. Portolà descended from Sweeney Ridge southeast down San Andreas Creek to Laguna Creek (now Crystal Springs Reservoirs and the Filoli estate, and thence to the San Francisquito Creek watershed, ultimately camping at El Palo Alto from November 6–11, 1769. Thinking the bay was too wide to cross, the group retraced their journey back to Monterey, never discovering the Golden Gate entrance to the Bay.
