To whom it may concern,

I hired Peter Polce back in December 2012 to sell one of my rental properties in the Bay Area. I have known Peter for years and he has done a great job of managing my properties but this was the first time I had asked Peter to sell one of my units. It was two weeks before Christmas one of the worst times of the year to be in the market but Peter found me a buyer in 3 days after the property went on MLS! He got me an excellent offer and I had no trouble in selling the unit in record time. This was my best real-estate experience (ever). I have owned and still own many properties in California. I have therefore dealt with many Real-Estate brokers in the past but none of them ever left me with such a good experience. In additiona Peter and his company Metro Property Management had been managing two of my properties in the Bay Area. He has always found me good tenants who pay their rent on time and leave the place clean after they move out. Peter and Metro does an excellent job of screening the candidates to find me good tenants. Metro handles all the repair issues and charges me a reasonable fee for leasing and managing my properties. His accountant sends me a financial summary every month and one at the end of the year for my taxes. I have little to no involvement with any of my properties. I just receive the rent without any headaches. I believe Metro Property Management is one of the best property management companies in the Bay Area. Peter and his teams are knowledgeable, assertive, and look for the interests of their clients. He knows his market well and is motivated to leave an unforgettable good experience for his clients. I highly recommend Peter Polce and his team at Metro Property Management Co.

To Whom it May Concern,

This letter is in reference to the services provided by Peter Polce through Metro Realty, as my property manager, and ReMax Realty as the listing Broker for my former home in Danville, California. I have known Peter to have extensive knowledge and experience in real estate sales and rentals throughout the bay area for many years, so when my job forced me to move and therefore sell my home, I asked Peter to list the property for sale. Peter's extensive marketing and sales experience showed immediately in his approach to marketing my home. His contacts within the real estate community, hard work and creativity produced great exposure to potential buyers. Unfortunately, my timing for a sale did not coincide with market demand, which was in a downturn at the time. Not wanting to compromise the value I perceived in the home, Peter pursued a suitable tenant to rent the property until the market rebounded.

Before renting the property, we discussed some remmodel work that we both felt would make the property more marketable as a rental and ultimately add value for sale. Peter coordinted the planning, bidding and supervision for the project. The result was quality workmanship at a competitive price that ultimately facilitated a quick rental to a well qualified tenant whose rent covered much of my holding costs for over a year. Peter's sense of management of the project left me free to focus on my relocation without worry. Once the project was complete, Peter was able to move the tenant in quickly with the minimum of vacancy time, and thereafter addressed every issue that came up related to the management of the tenant the property. My role with regard to the rental was reduced to simply depositing the check each month. His accounting and maintenance records were precise and confidence inpiring. 

Just over a year later, when we believed the market might be rebounding, Peter swiftly orchestrated the marketing endeavor that resulted in three buyers competing for the purchase within a matter of days. Concurrent with the marketing effort Peter also coordinated the vacancy of the tenant, as well as the contractors and staging, necessary to present the home at its best, but in an efficient manner. Impressively the home was vacant less than three weeks before I had received the cash from the sale at a price that was satisfying. 

I have been exposed to many realtors and property managers over many years and believe that Peter brings and incredible depth of experience that is unmatched by his peers. I am certain that I obtained the maximum value for my home due to his diligent and conscientious management at every diverse phase was excellent and reassuring. Peter's regular communication at every phase was excellent and reassuring. His services were flexible to my goals for the property, and competitively priced. I highly recommend him to any property owner who is looking for more than a Realtor, but a true advocate for their real estate needs.

I have used Metro Property Management as my property manager for the last 20 months in Danville, CA. I have been very pleased with Peter and Michelle in the way they managed my property. They were prompt in dealing with issues brought up by the renters, kept accurate records of the financial transactions, and had my best interest at heart.

Peter and his team will respond to your quickly, address your concerns and get the job done.
