It started with a move

When our founder and his wife moved from Seattle to a different state, they decided to keep their house as a rental property. After interviewing several property management firms they were blown away by the cost for a service they could largely do on their own. That said, they wanted someone local who could help with maintenance and be a familiar face for their tenants.

A local contractor, Pete, had done some work on their house - they knew he was skilled, friendly, very punctual, and had the flexibility to be at the house quickly. Pete liked the idea of watching over the house and generating some additional income. The tenants, property owners, and Pete all valued the arrangement and RentalRiff was born.

Empathetic service

We aim to make every owner and their tenants know they are heard, valued, and deserve prompt and attentive solutions. We are committed to building long lasting relationships with honesty, professionalism, and excellent service.

Compassionate communication

Every property is an investment and a home. We recognize that each repair, replacement, or property turnover has an effect on the property owner and the residents living there. Each interaction is handled with care - at the end of the day our job is to help people. We’re making our customers’ lives better and we’ll deliver, with understanding and approachability, on this promise from start to resolution.

Always with intention

We are passionate about our level of service and helping others. Customers choose us because they trust our brand and people. We earn that trust by ensuring everything we do is reliable, consistent, and with the highest level of integrity. Our vested interest in people-first is also the reason why we share ownership in RentalRiff with our Property Specialists.
