I have a couple of clients that used the services of Ohana Property Management Company to deal with a rental property that has multiple owners. Carrie Hamilton was very helpful in dealing with all of the issues that came up, including the difficulties associated with evicting the tenant and keeping peace between the multiple owners. My clients and I were very happy with the level of service, expertise, and experience that Carrie Hamilton portrayed in our situation. I would recommend Ohana Property Management to anyone!

I have been managing my mother’s rental home for several years. After the last tenant moved out, I decided that I just didn’t want to go through the arduous tasks of advertising and interviewing potential tenants. I was looking for a dependable, small, local firm that would handle the daily management of my mother’s rental. A friend referred me to Ohana Property Management. Carrie is professional, efficient, knowledgeable and very thorough.

The day I called Carrie, she setup an appointment for that week. We met at my mother’s rental, did a walkthrough, discussed my expectations and desires. As well, Carrie informed me of various California legal requirements, made suggestions on needed repairs, and recommended alternatives for structuring the rent.

Carrie found a wonderful tenant for me in a very reasonable amount of time. While we have not had any major issues (knock on wood), Carrie has been very timely and responsive to both the tenant and me on various items. On a monthly basis, I receive a monthly accounting of the rental income and respective expenses.

I’m very pleased with Carrie’s services, and would strongly recommend her company. Transferring the responsibility to a property management firm has provided me much relief – this is money well spent.

Thank you, Carrie!
