What our residents say about us.

” I lived in an apartment managed by Square One Management for 3.5 years and had nothing but a positive experience. Raghu always responded within 24 hours- even during quarantine! Their online portal was super convenient and if they needed to get into my apartment, they were always courteous and gave advance notice. “

Christina L.

” We rented an apartment for 2 years in San Francisco and had a fantastic experience. For the few maintenance issues we had, they were all fixed within less than 2 days. And their staff is super friendly. “

Marlon Misra

” I had nothing but good experiences with Square One Management. The leasing process was handled very well and I could sign from the ease of my computer. Jeana made correspondence very easy too. I received my full security deposit quickly after moving out. “
