I rented an apartment in Green lake through RPA and it was a great year and a half. They have an easy online portal to pay rent and request maintenance services. Anytime there was an issue they got it resolved quickly and the property manager was always on our side and very understanding of circumstances. Highly recommend!

I have only good things to say about Victoria and RPA. Everything about the leasing process was seamless. I was able to book a tour online, met with her assistant at the unit, she walked me thru how to apply online, I signed my lease and was able to pay online. I had a couple items repaired since my move in, which was also done online (the repair request) their maintenance staff is also super professional. I'm very happy with the level of service!!

Victoria has been my property manager for 5 years. It’s pretty incredible how fast her response time is when ever there are issues . Very professional and approachable.

We have just recently moved into a property managed by RPA, and we had to put in a maintenance request. The maintenance team, was quick to respond and set up a time that fit our schedule. The maintenance tech, Jarith, showed up in a timely manner, and was nothing but polite and professional. I have to say that so far, RPA, our property manager, Meghan, and her assistant, Abby have been nothing but pleasant and attentive to our needs. Miles above what our previous experiences with other companies have been.

Shout out to Abby. Made an appointment and showed up a week early. Called and complained before I realized what I had done, Abby explained the situation to me then came in on a Sunday so that I could see the apartment while I was still in town. She made light of the situation and was professional and had a great attitude. The apartment didn't fit my needs but I appreciate the effort, very different from the other people I have been dealing with. Thank you Abby.
Heidi Dalton
I’ve been renting from RPA for a couple years and I need to give a huge shout out to Heidi Bardue! She has gone above and beyond a property managers duties for me! I can’t express enough my gratitude! Thank you so much Heidi! I’m extremely grateful!
Amanda Simone
Lisa Benedict is my property manager and who I just leased a home from. From the showing to the application process to signing the lease, everything was very straight forward. She definitely knows her business.
