Denise took the time to assist me and I rented a very nice home in North Merced. I also own several rental properties in Northern California and the great service and wonderful living experience that first made me a tenant grew into me becoming a client. They now manage my properties and I could not be happier with the wonderful service I receive! Whether renting or looking for management, the best decision is to work with River Drive Properties.

Pretty much everything has been a breeze with this place. I appreciate the tech-forward approach to lease signing, payments, etc. The online tenant center is nice, easy to navigate, and has good info available. Maintenance is easy to request and very responsive... they even got my A/C up and running the very next morning after it crapped out on us. Thank you!

I've worked with River Drive Properties for nearly a year and I am extremely content with their service. It was my first time renting out my property, and Joseph, with the help of his team, made me feel comfortable with the entire process. Anytime I had a question, they were quick and thorough with their responses. I also appreciated how their owner portal has all the payment information as well as any receipts from work they need to do. They are transparent, honest, and quick with listing your properties. I would definitely recommend their services.
