We have 2 rental properties in Toledo and Oz Realty has been an excellent partner to manage and maintain them. Communication is good and while no one likes paying for maintenance, I feel their service costs are excellent. Looking forward to adding another rental in Toledo and having Oz Realty manage it.

I am a first time out of state investor and chose Oz Realty due to their professionalism and promptness. I researched tenant and landlord reviews and decided to go with them due to their proven track record of performance. They held my hand through the purchasing process and my property was rented after rehab. They are truly a hands off Turnkey provider.


Oz has been a great company to rent through and work with. They have been very understanding and accommodating of my needs. After moving to Toledo and having a less than preferable experience, with a rental company I will not mention, Oz has been a great partner to rent through. I highly recommend.

They are always eager to help you out if you have any questions and I feel like they are really honest people dealing in an ethical manner. I really feel like I have a personal relationship with the people I talk to. Awesome experience!
