We’re Team Laguna.
When you care about your home, we do too.
There’s a reason our office ranks #1 throughout California in volume of transactions: we’re the most recommended leasing company in town. That’s because we love clients who care about their homes—and we prove it by bringing them the most desirable, trustworthy and responsible tenants possible.
If you’ve come to us, we know you care about your home. And as knowledgeable, dedicated local professionals, our goal is to help you find a highly-qualified, low-maintenance tenant for your property, whether for long-term or vacation rental.
How we work
As soon as we take a new listing, the marketing begins immediately. Listing Manager Laura Baptista, who’s been with Team Laguna for over 10 years, gets the ball rolling. Office Assistant and Property Manager Kate Keast, herself a 20-year Team Laguna veteran, runs the advertising and property management team.


We advertise on as many websites as possible. In addition to the MLS, we submit your information to the local newspaper and an extensive network of online real estate sites to give your home maximum exposure (please see attached for examples and details). This is more than a one-time ‘blast’—it’s a continuous engagement until we find you the ideal tenant.
And how do we do that? By providing and engaging:
Initial walk-through           
To advise you on factors affecting rentability


Preparation advice               
To suggest ways to maximize rents and resale value

To arrive at recommendations regarding home improvement and maintenance


Rental pricing
Determined by a thorough market survey and rental analysis


With high-quality photography and ad placement on the industry’s leading sites including MLS, Trulia, Zillow, HotPads, Craigslist and many more

Beginning with an inviting ‘For Lease’ sign at property


Tenant screening
Our process includes reviewing of application, credit and background screening, three months of bank statements, and verification of income and copy of ID.  We also check references with past landlords.
Team Laguna owner and broker Danielle Purcell personally approves all tenants. All paperwork, including applications and leases, are approved by Danielle before being submitted to the property owner. Her knowledge and expertise with reading between the lines have shaped Team Laguna’s success; however, the owner always has the final say and approval for applications.
Short term rentals are prepaid and subject to a shorter application form. 


What it costs

Our current fee schedule is as follows:

Leasing fees
