Deca has been managing my properties for months now. During the duration because of consistent communication and transparency the job they have been performing, thus far is phenomenal.

I’ve rented with Deca for about 6yrs and my maintenance service has been 99% great. I’m disabled and they’ve installed storage, pics, mirrors and bathroom safety bars,etc. Jim Young is a great manager and nice to me. My overall rental experience with Deca is great and I look forward to our rental future. This Deca property is well maintained, quite, clean and safe. I must be fair in my review of my history renting with Deca. This is a repost of a 1-Star Review that Goggle Reviews Removed after i posted a Separate 5-Star Review of great work that Deca did installing Grab Safety Bars in the restroom on 3/17/21. Deca told me water leaks are paramount and would be handled as such. i had an emergency kitchen water leak under the sink one weekend and was told to put a bucket under it. As a disabled person i had No Use of my kitchen in the middle of a red-hot 3rd strike pandemic. I ate out that weekend to keep safe. the leak was eventually fixed but was taken as the Paramount Emergency water leak it was.
