“Richard Odenheimer 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 occupancy rate."

-- Jeff Resnik, Paul Hersh, LLC

“We have been working with MRE Real Estate for over 10 years, during which time Richard has represent our LLC exclusively in the negotiation of commercial leases and the sale of property. I would not consider working with anyone else in the Bay Area. He is highly organized, an expert negotiator, and has years of experience in the business. He is fair and honest, and has become an invaluable asset in helping us achieve our financial goals."

-- Joel Avila, Berkeley Capital Partners, LLC

“We have trusted Richard Odenheimer/MRE with the management of our commercial and mixed use properties for over 15 years and couldn't be more pleased -- he is thorough, skilled, responsive and thoughtful. We rely on his wisdom and expertise, and feel fortunate to be among his clients.”

-- Laura Tow, Brodsky Family Properties

“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.”

-- Lichtenstein Properties, LLC

“Richard Odenheimer’s knowledge and skill in the world of commercial real estate in the San Francisco Bay Area is without equal. He has honed his craft for well over 20 years, is extremely intelligent, responsive, clever and tough when necessary. Buying, selling and managing small and large investment properties, lease negotiation, property management, Richard does it all. Having him in our corner for many years has kept our properties running smoothly, increased our wealth and preserved our sanity. We cannot endorse him highly enough.”

-- David L. Avila, Esq.

“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.”

-- F.I.T.H LLC.

“Richard Odenheimer is user friendly. I have used him to find tenants for two different commercial buildings. He did all the negotiations, and took the hassle out of the process for me, and was successful. If I need an agent again, he is my go to person.”

-- A Longtime Client

“Richard Odenheimer has been the property manager for FITH for close to 10 years. He has helped us tremendously with EVERY aspect of our business.

Here is a small sample of the things he takes care of:

He handles "daily" operations which might include hiring apartment managers, midnight arrangements to fix broken plumbing, hiring contractors for remodels overseeing apartment rentals.

He handles monthly operations which includes but are not limited to financial reports to the partners, rent collections, partner disbursement and the yearly operations - reporting / tax info / working with our CPA.

He handles all these duties and more with swiftness, kindness and an eye for the bottom line.

He has helped us grow our business by buying and selling properties for us.

He advises us in the best possible way with utmost professionalism and ALWAYS with our best interest at heart.

Most importantly he has become not only a trusted and very valuable part of our operation but a good friend.”

-- Josie Jurczenia, Partner FITH
