Fun and Positive Experience!

“I highly recommend staying at The Laureate with Square One Management if you want your time in Berkeley to be a fun one as my experience is only positive with this company. Prices are also competitive considering the amount of living space you get! You will not be disappointed if you take my advice.”

Wonderful Staff!

“Square One Management has been wonderful to work with. Raghu and Mary helped us get everything done to get my daughter and her roommates into the apartment that they wanted. Communication has been clear and timely, they even responded after hours. We have been very pleased.”

A Breath of Fresh Air

“I’ve been renting in Berkeley with Square One this year, and they’ve been nothing short of helpful throughout the process. From the open house to signing the lease to maintenance to ending the lease, Van in particular was always quick to respond and went above and beyond to make sure I got the help I needed! Compared to my previous renting experiences with other management companies in Berkeley, Square One has been a breath of fresh air. Would definitely recommend them!”
