Calvin and Ashley are great! They are the reason we can invest in the area from out of state. They have a great network of individuals to address everything we need. They are quick to respond to our every question and concern. Far superior to our other property managers in two other states, so much that we are liquidating those houses to buy more in Richmond for them to manage. Peace of mind is priceless and that is what we have with Keyrenter Property Management Richmond!
Katrina M., Satisfied Client
From Day One, through move in, Calvin and Ashley have been attentive, super responsive and overall pleasant to deal with through this entire process. My husband and I are renting a beautiful property from them, and we couldn't be more pleased. I would definitely recommend them and they'll be our first call if we decide to rent again!
Tamika T., Satisfied Tenant
My wife and I are new clients of Keyrenter Richmond as of May 2018. The experience has been so far beyond what we expected. We had previously dealt with another company for our rental house and had a totally bad experience. Calvin and Ashley took us on and worked hard to provide a quality client and take care of all our concerns. Nothing was left to chance. They are always easy to contact and return emails and calls promptly. If you have property in the Richmond area you would do well to consider Keyrenter Richmond as your agent.
Barry L., Satisfied Client
The service you get with Ashley and Calvin is truly over the top. I was very nervous having someone manage my property. I relocated to a different country, which makes it very difficult to manage a property from a far, and Ashley and Calvin have really made it the easiest thing ever. I wish I found them years ago.
