We have been renters from BCI for 2 years. Our contact person, Tanisha, is one of the best associates to work with. She is very efficient at getting problems solved. Besides being professional, she is very caring. Thank you Tanisha!

"From the start, Marsha was able to help us get a good sense of what the current market prices were and where we should be with our asking price. She was very patient with our situation in that we had a renter that could not move out as fast as we would like and showing the property was a real challenge.

We finally got our unit vacant and Marsha was instrumental in getting all the proper documents and coordination with our HMO, as we had new flooring we had promised to install in the transaction, which Marsha stayed on top of through completion. She was in touch with my wife and me the whole time. The buyers needs were taken care of as well as our needs as the sellers."

Sorry, I asked many times about code compliance of stairs but the reason is that it took us 4 months of arguing with the lender because mistakes by previous owner. So, I just wanted to ensure I don't end up in similar situation but you gave me total peace of mind now!

We have rented from BCI Properties for about 5 years and have always been treated fairly and with the complete respect from Don Leske and his team. They respond quickly to our needs and if we ever have a concern Don is always on the spot to personally take care of it if need be, but his team can always handle the task. We appreciate their professionalism and are happy to rent at BCI Properties.

Rate Donald Leske II / BCI PROPERTIES LLC on specific characteristics:

BCI has managed my rental for the past several years. They have done an excellent job of screening tenants and keeping the property rented with responsible folks. When repairs are needed, I have been fully informed and they take care of whatever is needed on my behalf. Although I currently live several states away from the property that they manage for me, I rest easy knowing they are capable of handling any issue that arises. I recommend BCI without hesitation.

When I was first looking for property management, and did not have favorable results in my local area, my son said, "Check out Tacoma." I did and called Don. Our talk was productive and informative and fun. His experience and knowledge confirmed my choice of BCI. Thanks team!

Hello, I am extremely pleased with BCI property management. One of my reasons...1. The response time when there is a situation at hand. My refridgerator on a friday night, of all days decides its going to stop working completely after buying groceries for the entire month on Thursday and on Saturday there are no office hours. Maintenance requests are filled out online (love that so I dont have to catch a ride to the office to fill out maintenance slip that also will require my signature), my maintenance slip won't be seen until Monday during office hours and I have to find a place to store a refrigderator and I have a freezer filled with groceries...anxiety sets in as I go to sleep...BCI is so excellent with timely responses and actions to ensure tenant satisfaction! The assistant manager of BCI called me at 9:32 am informing me that someone from BCI would be bringing me a working refridgerator this morming. Whoa!..response time A++++ Physical action done and completed 10:17 a.m = A++++ BCI staff customer service A++++ = courtesy, knowledgeable about what needs to be done (Tanisha and Sam) = A++++... I have rented Homes, Duplexes, Apartments, and rooms for rent for the last 27 years of my life from Washington State to Georgia, some with on site management and some without onsite management and I can honestly say that BCI ROCKS! The best management team I have come across in my 27 year rental history. I would highly recommend. BCI Property Management to anyone including The President of the U.S. They are complete in all areas of their field. They are thorough and finish whatever they start! Don Leske I am proud to be a tenant. You should teach classes or give lectures on Property Management. Outstanding!

I really wish your listings/postings were updated and accurate. Everytime I have searched your listings from your website from, I am always calling about a listing that is in active and already rented yet on your website it shows these listings as NOT inactive or already rented, instead they read they are active and available. I just gave up all the hassles of browsing through and calling about properties that showed active but were actually not. Glad I found a place that has their business in order! I would not recommend BCI Properties, because they can't even provide up to date, accurate listings plus the people I spoke to there were very short, careless, and downright rude about it.

Margaret Cates, BCI Properties Accounting Department Manager - Owner Accounts, displays remarkable dedication to her work and relationships with owners and their accounts. Margaret has approached every question or concern we have directed to her with a high degree of integrity, professionalism, and unsurpassed level of transparency to keep us informed of the financial scenarios that accompany the aspects of owning an investment property.

As owners, we are grateful for Margaret's approach of handling financial transactions in a method that reflects a substantial amount of dedication and pride in accomplishing her work that surpasses all expectations - she treats each account as if it were her own. It has been a pleasure to work with her to maintain an accurate accounting record for our property. Keep up the outstanding work and thank you!

Thank you for the update Victoria. That sounds great! I appreciate the hard work that the team there has done to get this vacancy filled so quickly with a quality tenant.

I had gotten an e-mail from Margaret last week about a couple of items in need of attention that were discovered at the recent 180 day inspection. After the move out inspection, we can see if any other items are in need of repair and put a plan in place to get everything taken care of to the satisfaction of the new tenants. I will await further information from my assistant property manager after the inspection.

Best regards, Asbury Lockett

I have dealt with many different real estate agencies over the past 13 years in several different countries and most of them were quite honest and ok to work with. BCI beat them all! As I had moved to the US from a foreign country I did not have any credit history, no social security number, no bank account and no job. Other agencies I had contacted did not even bother to reply. Not so BCI! They, not only let me rent from them but they also helped with organizing furniture, picking up the furniture, they helped with setting up a bank account and they got me in contact with a car dealer to make life easier. We have not only found a real estate agency but we found friends in this company! I could not give them enough stars for this more than exceptional and above and beyond service! Thank you guys for making us feel welcome, home and happy from day 1!!

If I could give BCI 10 stars I would, because that's how great the staff has been to me. I had some serious medical issues come up in my life, and the owner, Donald Leskie and my property manager conferred with eachother to make my move-out notice easier, and to hold a place for me to move into. They actually are caring, dependable, and HONEST people. That is pretty hard to find, and can say about most Landlords who are always lying and ripping people off. They also come fix everything I have put a work order in for. I live in a single family home, and I was going nuts when my washer/dryer went out on me. But not for long. A few days later I had a new washer/dryer delivered to me! I told you they were awesome. ;-) Maintanence is great too! They are not a cheap company that truely cares for their tenants. I plan on sticking with BCI properties for good. It has been over three years now. I highly recommend BCI Properties as your rental company. You guys are great! Thanks BCI Properties for being the BEST!!!-):-):-)

I chose BCI Property Management to manage my rental and was very impressed with the team effort to find me a tenant. They did this within days of my signing up for their services. I still hold a mortgage on my rental so finding a tenant that fast really helped my finances a lot. Recently my tenant didn't pay the rent and I was looking at an eviction process for the first time ever. BCI stepped in and handled everything. Their experience got the tenant out without eviction. They kept me well informed throughout the process. Most importantly the BCI team once again found a tenant for me within days. BCI made sure that all the details were taken care of in a way that helped me save money as well. I do not believe any other property management company would have come even close to the efforts of the BCI team in helping me. Thank you BCI. I love the extra effort and help you have given!

I wholeheartedly recommend BCI for your next rental experience. Our property manager Kris, and Don, both stepped in to help us immediately when we were highly frustrated as tenants!

The quick response and genuine caring atmosphere is beyond amazing! BCI actually listens to what you have to say and then does anything they can to help you take care of whatever situation you may be experiencing.

Integrity and professionalism abound with this company.

Thank you BCI for making our rental experience with you so wonderful.

Hi Don,

I just wanted to acknowledge the man that I called an obsessive hard worker JOHN EDSTROM. He is amazing and I don't know anyone that has the passion to get the job done like he does, not only he quickly responded back every time I called but always made sure I get the answer right then and there and go the extra miles to help me. I never been more satisfied with a person doing his job like John , You have the right guy representing your company. BCI Properties and John Edstrom you guys are awesome!!!

Hi Don,

You guys have been amazing. There have been times that I have called impatient and frustrated and I have been welcomed with nothing but understanding and genuine helpful attitudes.... From literally every person on your team. The frustrations I've had, were there because of the situation with our unreliable tenants; not because of anyone at BCI. BCI has been nothing but supportive. You and your team are appreciated more than you know. In regards to the negative reviews I've come across, I think that some owners have unrealistic expectations. It's not as though a property manager can be at every property everyday. I know firsthand that if I, as an owner, have any concerns at all, that you guys are right on top of things. I've seen complaints about texting and a lack of return calls. Personally, in today's technologically advanced age, I feel like a quick text can be more convenient than a phone call as you guys are busy and so are most of your clients. Should I choose to call in place of a text, Kris is always available to answer or return calls in a timely manner. All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you. We appreciate all of your hard work!!!!

Sincerely, Jen Bannister"

Thank you for finding new tenants so quickly. You have gone above and beyond to help me out....not that the bar was set very high by the last property manager I had! I only wish I had you managing my property starting in June 2010 when I hired the last company.

My stress level has been reduced and I thank you for that. I didn't know things could go so smoothly with owning property in WA and living over 1,000 miles away. You've done an amazing job cleaning up the mess left by the previous property manager. And, with little stress on my part.

THANK YOU! ..... again for all of the help you have given me. Hopefully it will be a lot less work for you from here on out.

We rented our first house with Don & Emily and the BCI team. They made it very easy and were always quick with any issues we had as far as repairs. They were even gracious in offering to help us find our next rental when we were ready to downsize. They are not only great home owner advocates but tenant advocates as well. We would highly recommend using them as either a home owner or a home seeker! Rob & Renae Yager - Puyallup, WA

I have been renting from BCI Properties for the last two years. My son has also rented from BCI and has only had amazing experiences. They have always advocated for me as a tenant and made sure that everything is fair. Whenever a repair has been needed, like a leaky sink, they make it their top priority and have always ensured that the repair work is done quickly without compromising the quality of work. Thank you Don and Emily for helping me find the right home for my family and taking care of all of our needs.

Hi, Don

I just want to let you know how much I have appreciated you and your staff. You have all been, genuine, quick, honest, and easy to work with, and I am grateful for that.

I apologize that we did not think to have you do the short sales. We just called the number of a specialist that we were given, but I know you would have done a great job. I only wish we would have had you manage our properties years ago, then we might not be in this situation.

Please feel free to send me any links where I can leave a testimonial or review. Thank you again for helping us through this difficult time.

January, 2012 My experience with BCI Properties in Tacoma has been excellent. Don, Emily and staff are friendly, detail-oriented and sincerely care about the work they do. I approached them in 2010 for property management of my small East Tacoma home after reading many excellent reviews and comparing services and costs of other property management companies in Tacoma. In no time my little house was occupied. When that first tenant moved out, BCI Properties had another tenant ready to move right in, and the home has been occupied ever since.

Also, BCI Properties is great about keeping me appraised about property issues such as needed repairs - even giving me the option of having repairs done by qualified repairmen on their list, or allowing me to have work done by a professional of my own choosing.

I am extremely satisfied with BCI Properties and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone needing property management.
