“Commonwealth has been providing us with professional management for over a decade. Previously, we had managed two Oregon parks by ourselves. Their promise was to improve operations and enhance cash flow. Promise has been kept.”
“Commonwealth has managed our two communities for nearly two decades. From the well-manicured common area landscaping to the demonstrated pride of ownership of our residents, we have enjoyed the results of high standards promoted by Commonwealth in having our communities stand out as two of the finest managed and most attractive communities in the Portland metropolitan area.”
“Commonwealth Real Estate Services has made my life stress free because I’m confident that any problems that may arise will be professionally handled in a timely manner. They are able to achieve a positive result for the most difficult situations. I’m very happy with our 17 year relationship and highly recommend Commonwealth Real Estate Services to any property owner who is in need of management. Keep up the good work Commonwealth.”
“I think you do a good job. Thanks for the help, and we plan to stay with you because of the professional and valuable service.”
