I have always been very happy with the tenants he selected
“I have worked with Stuart Levitas professionally for about 6 years at this point. I own 4 properties, 3 of which are in Oakland. Stuart has found tenants for all of my properties in Oakland. He took care of all the advertising, meeting with tenants and ultimately the leasing of these units and I have always been very happy with the tenants he selected. He has also managed a 4-plex of mine for about the same 6 years. He has been diligent about picking up the rent from sometimes scattered or uncooperative tenants. He responds to my tenant’s issues quickly and escalates repair issues to me as appropriate or independently hires a contractor to get the issues addressed. I could not have managed these 3 additional properties over the past 6 years while working full time and having a family if it wasn't for Stuart. He's a great property manager and I look forward to many more years working with him.”
Keri C., San Francisco

I have and will continue to recommend his services"
Stuart really listened to my needs
"I've worked with property managers before and was quite impressed I found Stuart from Astound Property Management. Stuart really listened to my needs and didn't have an agenda of his own that got in the way of us working together. Each time I contacted him, he would promptly get back to me. At times I needed his opinions on situations, which I found very professional and supportive. Stuart has an ease of being that made it very pleasant to work with. He has many years of working in his field and the confidence that goes along with that experience. I will definitely use his services again in the future".

He did an excellent job
“I needed to rent a property in Concord. I contacted Stuart and within two weeks he found me excellent tenants! Stuart provided the lease and all the paperwork. All in all he did an excellent job and I highly recommend him.”
Jim D., Martinez
He is honest, knowledgeable and upfront about everything!
“I have known Stuart for quite some time; I really respect him as a real Estate Agent and as a person. We have worked together at the same company before and after I left we still kept in contact. When me and my boyfriend decided to purchase a house; I contacted Stuart. He is honest, knowledgeable and upfront about everything! He took care of everything from beginning to end! We were approved in October and the house was ours on December 20, 2011. We moved in on the 31st. What a great way to start the New Year! We really appreciated all his help. If you are looking for a real estate agent we highly recommend Stuart!”
I highly recommend him
“Stuart has been managing the rental of my house for the past two years. He has been great. He is responsive, dependable and easy to work with. He found the tenants and handled the lease. Much of the time he has managed the house, we have been totally out of communication (off the grid) and we never worried about the house. He handled all the issues in a quick and economical manner. It was nice to not give it a thought other than seeing the rent check get deposited. I highly recommend him.”
Dee Dee Lozier, North Oakland
I can’t say enough good about Astound Property Management
“Stuart has been managing 2 rental properties for me in the East Bay for 3 years. He has placed tenants who are happy and well suited to the houses, who pay their rent regularly and maintain good professional relationships with Stuart. Stuart is a good diplomat with difficult people (we had some renting from us before we found Stuart). He is fair- minded, courteous, punctual, and always pleasant. He's very knowledgeable about rental markets and real estate law, gives good advice freely. I can't say enough good about Astound Property Management.”
David Thompson, Oakland
Has done a great job for us
“Stuart has managed our rental property for seven months now, and has done a great job for us. He was readily available and helpful to us in deciding the options and details of renting the property, and instantly found a tenant and had the property rented. All has gone well, we love working with Stuart so far.”
John Armitage, Berkeley
Thorough, prompt, and willing to help
“Stuart manages two properties for me in the Pittsburg area and he is thorough, prompt, and willing to help with all aspects of tenant problems. With his assistance, I was able to rid myself of tenants from Section 8 and he made sure the properties were remodeled and ready for move in with minimal loss of rent. If anyone needs property management done the correct way, do not hesitate to contact Stuart. I'm glad I did!”
