served as a buyer’s broker for us when we purchased
a retail strip in Emeryville in 2011. We were
so impressed with his communication skills,
experience, and diligent work ethic during the
complex purchase process, that we asked him
to be the new property manager for the building.
Richard proved to be
an excellent property manager in every respect.
He has addressed a very wide range of issues
in a timely, thoughtful, and thorough manner.
He always asks for input on decisions when appropriate
and seamlessly adjusts his style to match our
sometimes changing ability to be directly involved
with the property.
Richard is also very
much appreciated and highly regarded by the
tenants in the building and that has been a
critical supporting factor in our current high

with MRE Real Estate for over 10 years, during
which time Richard has represent our LLC exclusively

couldn't be more pleased -- he is thorough,
skilled, responsive and thoughtful. We rely

“Our family depends on
income from a couple of holdings. We started
with a small building and a terrible lease.
When we asked Dick to come into the project
he not only transformed that building into a
profit center, he guided us as we expanded into
other projects. Every time I consult with Dick,
I learn something new. Our expertise is not
in commercial real estate, but our money is.
With Dick as our guide and mentor, we know we
have an advocate, and our holdings are maximized.
We could not be in better hands.”

years has kept our properties running smoothly,

“I don't know what we'd
do without Richard Odenheimer. He always seems
to understand our objectives and carries them
out better than we could. The clarity from the
(monthly operating) statements and quick response
is fantastic. We couldn't ask for a better property
manager in our real estate ventures. Richard
has also helped us Buy and Sell buildings. He
has a complete and thorough understanding of
each building's cash flow potential.
Thank you Richard, it
is always a pleasure working with you.”
