Our Services

picture of a house

Marketing & Advertising

Our extensive marketing and advertising program places your property across top rental sites such as: Zillow, Trulia, Hotpads, Apartments.com and many more. We place a for rent sign in the yard, create a Youtube video and post to Facebook. All of this at no cost to you. And most importantly we answer our phone and return email inquires to set showing appointments. We conduct property showings Monday through Saturday and early morning and evenings until 6:30 p.m. when prospective tenants are mostly available.

Property Showings

We personally show your property to all prospective tenants ourselves. We do not hand out keys in exchange for a driver’s license or deposit. We don't use lockbox showing services like ShowMojo. And we don't place your listing in MLS allowing someone else to chose your tenant. We believe the first step in finding you the right tenant starts with the initial meet and greet at the property and that's why you will only find one of the owners of Drake Properties personally showing your property.

Tenant Screening

We conduct a thorough screening on potential tenants that includes: credit and criminal background checks, national terrorist action list, sex offender registry, employment and residential verification, and a screening for bankruptcy and past evictions — at no additional cost to you. The process is started after a prospective tenant views your property; we do not allow tenants to rent properties "site unseen". Once they have seen the property they complete our online application and pay a $35 fee to run their credit and conduct the background check.

We prepare the lease and all pertinent supplements necessary to protect you and your interests. We use only California Association of Realtor forms that have been reviewed by attorneys and are up-to-date on current landlord/tenant laws.
