D&G has been managing our property since 2010 and has done a great job. We have had a number of issues concerning both natural disasters and property upkeep, and D&G has done a great job keeping us updated and appraised of the situations. I would highly recommend them to anyone in the Russian River area needing a property manager.
Business Owner replied on Dec 15, 2023:
Thank you Vikki! You and George are wonderful clients and are happy to serve you and the property.

I’ve been renting from D&G for the past 3 years or so. And It has been nothing but a positive experience for me. They have been very prompt about fixing things that breakdown or are not right .And recently I had some surgery which incapacitated me for a few months. Jill was kind enough to hook me up with an agency to help pay my rent for a few months while I recuperated. I whole heartedly reccomend D&G . Regards Russ Darden
