Hi Ray

 

Thanks for asking. Hope you had a great open house!

 

 No I don't think there are any issues. The apt is empty now and the keys are in kitchen drawer. If you find any issues then please let us know. The estimate that we got from Carlos is posted on the fridge for your reference. We did vacuumed the place but didn't cleaned it properly since Carlos crew will be doing that.

 

Also please let us know when can we get the deposit back (after taking off cleaning fees) - no rush - just want to know when should expect it. I will prefer personal check.

 

Thanks again for all your help - as we mentioned before - it was great knowing you. You are an amazing property manager and person. Let us know if we can be of any help to you in future - we will be really glad!

 

Okay - have a great week ahead and good luck!

Ray was very helpful to me in obtaining an early release from a difficult situation.  Ray responded quickly to calls and emails and was very professional.

He took over the property just as I was leaving, but without him I could not have taken advantage of a great opportunity in the City.

I agree with another poster..Regardless of who your landlord or  property manager is, .WHENEVER you sign a lease and any related papers,  be very careful that you know terms and conditions that you are accepting.  and pay special attention to the in/out checklists and terms of late payments and deposits. If you don't, you could find yourself peanlized.

Ray DiFruscio is the owner's representative on a condo we've been renting for about 2 years.  During our time here, Ray has been consistently responsive to our inquiries and concerns, and he's been especially swift in getting someone here whenever a repair is needed.  He does not intrude on our privacy.  He has handled every matter that we've brought to his attention in a very professional manner, being reasonable, fair, and honest in his dealings with us.  We appreciate, for example, that he made it clear before we signed anything that the rental agreement contained provisions not found in boilerplate leases, and that he made sure we understood what our responsibilities would be as tenants.  I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Ray is one of the best and most professional property managers I have ever met. He always returns my calls quickly, responds to emails the same day and has been very responsive to problems with the unit.

 

In one incident, a water pipe in my neighbor's townhouse burst and sent inches of water into my unit through the common wall. Ray responded the same day I found water coming into my unit. He worked with me, my neighbor, the owner of  the unit, all the insurance companies and the contractors to get the damage repaired.

 

Regarding rental agreements that are mentioned by other posters - I don't know where their comments are coming from. The rental agreement I received was standard and very thorough. Ray spent the time to go into detail with me and answered all my questions.

I've worked with Ray on three separate occasions: 

 

As a renter, where he was property manager.

As an owner, where he found tenants for my income property.

As a buyer, where he represented our best interests.

 

I obviously liked his abilities, otherwise I wouldn't have used his services multiple times.

 

He's extremely responsive, knowledgeable, and experienced.

 

He focuses on the details, and his process ensures a smooth transaction.  I bet the previous reviewers did not read or understand their contracts, and were disappointed when they were unable to bail on the commitments they agreed to.

 

I highly recommend Ray to anyone who's looking for a real estate professional on the Peninsula.

Ray has been our property manager for three years and I cannot say enough good things about him and the exceptional service that he provides.  He does his due diligence with potential renters, as an owner would expect, and he is a hard worker, honest and runs his business with professionalism and knowledge.  He has a good team of contractors who keep his properties in good shape, and I have come to consider him as a friend as well as someone I trust absolutely to take care of my property.  I sleep well at night knowing my home is managed by Ray and I would recommend him anytime, anywhere.  Michele L.

 

I have known Ray for over 40 years and he has managed my rental property for over 20 years.  He is honest, dependable, thorough.....does a great job for property owners as  well as renters.  I would recommend him to anyone and have in the past.  You cannot find a better realtor/property manager.

From 2006 to 2010, I rented a condo that Ray manages. Ray did his due diligence before deciding renting the condo to us. In addition to checking credit scores, he personally visited our previous home before signing the contract with us. During the 5-year period, we had three incidents, including an issue with the washing machine, an issue with the shower and a problem with some electric wires on one side of the wall. All the incidents were resolved very quickly and in a truly professional manner. I could reach Ray by telephone any time and emails were always replied within hours. Ray provides exceptional service and handles everything with true professionalism.

Ray has been my property manager since 2002. I would like to commend Ray for his dedication and professionalism. He is extremely courteous and helpful to my tenants. I could not ask for a better person to maintain my property.

 

Ray is a great asset to his organization and his services are excellent and thorough. I sincerely appreciate the effort he put forth and he can be proud of the service he provides.

Ray is one of the most professional, courteous and detail oriented Property Managers I  have ever worked with.  Nearly 11 years  ago, Ray helped me find the right home for my three children and I who were very young at the time. His efficiency and follow through made this a smooth and seamless transition.

 

During the past 11 years, Ray took the time and has assisted me with issues that came up even though he didn't manage the property. I know I can count on Ray to go the extra step and support me with any guidance I may need in the future.

I have rented from Ray a few times over the last 15 years, every time I have found him prompt, reliable and honest. This is his business and he is very good at it. When I was in need of a property manager, Ray was the one I called, knowing things would be handled well. Have been very satisfied how Ray handles his business first as a renter then a property owner.

I have had dealings with Ray DiFruscio for years and have always found him to be very knowledgeable and helpful.  He pays attention to details which is refreshing since many real estate people don't.  I will certainly use him again when I need real estate help in the Foster City-San Mateo area.

Ray has been my property manager for over 6 years.He has been great. Very reliable and quick to respond. He has always been attentive to any tenant issues and has resolved many property related problems for me without the headaches/ drama that typically come with property ownership. He's very professional, well organized, and provides thorough documentation on all property transactions. I highly recommend Ray and actually referred a friend to Ray for management of his home in Foster City.

Ray is one of the most responsible, responsive and respectable businessman I have met. He returns my calls and emails in a timely manner and fixes issues with my rental unit very quickly. In one particular instance, there was a small water leak in the townhouse. Water was not leaking inside the townhouse, but underneath. Ray quickly arranged for a repair company to show up, identify and fix the problem.

 

I would recommend Ray's services to anyone.

Ray was my property manager for a home in the Bay Area that I wanted to rent over 10 years ago now. He did a great job for us, taking care of every detail and advising us on the best course of action. He is very responsive and thinks of everything. I was very happy with his work and found him to be very skilled, knowledgeable and honest. Later I asked Ray to help me find a condo. Again, he did a great job with plenty of great advise based on his years of experience.  I was very pleased with the results. This summer, 2011,  Ray is once again my property manager for a condo that I am leasing out. He assisted me in getting the condo ready and found the tenant and is managing the property. I couldn't be happier.

He is now helping me search for a new home to buy. Truly a professional!

Ray has been our property manager/Realtor since 1975.  During that time he has managed our rental properties in Foster City and San Mateo.  Along the way, he has sold three of our rentals.  For management, he covers everything, is always responsive keeping us up to date and informed as to progress on maintenance projects, tenant and owner issues.  On sales, he has walked us through the entire process in full detail and covered all phases of the selling process so that we felt very confident in our transaction.  I like doing business with Ray in that he almost answers his phone on the second or third ring.  Relative to e-mails, we always have a personal response within hours.  Phil C Stelling EA PE   650 573-1657

I referred a client to Ray and he treated them like family, they loved his professionalism, and his attention to detail.

Whenever I contact him, he  returned calls right away. Several days ago, he contacted me regarding a home I have for sale, gave me some great advice, and was extremely helpful. Who does that? There was nothing in it for him, he's just a good person.

For full disclosure: Ray is not a family member or a close friend, he's a property manager that I trust to do a great job. Phillys M.,Foster City

Ray was our landlord for about 2 years while we rented a town home.  We were impressed with the way he handled the entire process. Not only did Ray check our credit scores, he personally visited us at our previous apartment before signing the contract. Yes, his procedures and policies differ slightly from the standard ones, but he makes this very clear from the very beginning. The move-in/move-out inspections were conducted very thoroughly & we see the value in this for both landlord & renters. 
As for maintenance requests, he was very quick to respond to emails and/or phone calls. He would first come by to see if the maintenance job was something he could handle himself. If not, he would make arrangements for someone to come by and handle it. 
He is a very attentive property manager & if at all we ever need the services of a property manager - Ray would be the person we would call.

Ray has been my listing agent for the sale of 3 properties. In addition he has also managed some rental property for me in the past.
Each time I found Ray to be very honest, knowledgeable, pays attention to detail and he kept me informed of good and bad news during the sale process.
He doesn't always tell you just what you want to hear. He tells you, and explains why, what needs to be done to sell your property.
Ray sold each of my properties in a timely manner.
