Re:      San Francisco East Bay Property Management
To Whom It May Concern:
I have known the owner of San Francisco East Bay Property Management for over 20 years.  As a business colleague, Mary Jane Deering is without a doubt one of the most competent and knowledgeable real estate property managers one could hire.  Mary Jane has over 30 years of real estate experience, and understands well the challenges and obstacles faced by residential landlords.  Mary Jane understands the need for detailed documenting of the condition of residential property before it is leased, and subsequently, after a tenancy ends, the need to clearly document the property condition once the prior tenant vacates the property.
Mary Jane Deering exhibits the highest level of integrity and honesty in her professional endeavors.  I would recommend Mary Jane Deering as a property manager to any landlord and investor.

To Whom It May Concern:

In the many years of knowing and working with Mary Jane Deering, her files have always been meticulous: she has never had a DRE complaint or been called to a mediation. She is extremely conscientious when it comes to advising her clients and facilitating the transaction. She is an articulate and timely communicator, which I truly admire and find very refreshing, especially in this day and age of of no accountability or personal responsibility. Mary Jane's love and respect for the Real Estate industry is very apparent in everything she and her team does and she takes her responsibilities very seriously. With Mary Jane, ethics, integrity and service is not just a concept, it is an attitude! It has been a real honor to witness Mary Jane's contributions to the Real Estate industry and it has a joy to see the results of her influence and commitment to her clients and our industry. I cannot imagine a better role model and representative for your real estate needs.   Don Faught, Vice-President, Alain Pinel Realtors, 2013 President, California Association of Realtors


I have known and worked with Mary Jane Deering, the owner/operator of SFEB property management, for over 20 years in her capacity

as a top flight realtor in the Tri-Valley area. We have closed many transactions together and she has repeatedly displayed her acumen for

problem solving, time and client management during those transactions. Many of those clients we worked with have come to be lifetime

clients who are now providing second generation referrals which demonstrates their belief of her professionalism and ability, I would not

hesitate to refer my best friends and relatives to work with her in her property management business and I believe anyone with investment

property that needs management will be very well served to use SFEB Property Management.   Randall W Pickerell Loan Officer - RPM Mortgage.


Dear Mary Jane,

It has been my good fortune to have you as my property manager since 1993! You are always on top of repairs, late payments from tenants, and have frequent communication with me.  You have spotted several situations which could have turned out to be quite costly for me, had you not noticed them, brought them to my attention, and then arranged for them to be taken care of quickly.  I also was impressed when you discovered that one of my tenants had a dog, which was not allowed in the lease, and then resolved that issue with the tenant to both of our satisfaction. I'll use your services as long as I own rentals! Thank you!  Chris Paranomos

 Thank you, Mary Jane for writing the lease for my rental property. You thought of things that I hadn't even considered and then included verbiage in the lease to protect me, and to require my tenant to do certain things. You are always looking out for my best interests, and explain everything so clearly. Misha Groysman 


Dear Ms. Deering,

I have several properties in the East Bay. I appreciate your honesty & willingness to suggest professional ways in which to handle problems that I have experienced with tenants, resulting in resolving those problems.  One of those situations was resolved by you writing a special addendum for that tenant. I appreciate that you use outside vendors for bids for some major work that I wanted done, thereby insuring the best possible price. I also appreciate your easy-to-understand, detailed monthly statements, itemizing all expenses. There are many things to consider when picking a property manager. Thank you for being the epitome of what owners are looking for!  C. L. Hyden
