“My husband and I relocated to Las Vegas and searched high and low for the perfect home for our family. No place seemed like the one for us until; we found our current home, owned by American Homes 4 Rent. To say that it has been a pleasant experience would be an understatement. AH4R is reliable, responsible, and caring. Everyone who comes to our house comments on how beautiful it is, and how it's way above the standard. Since moving in, every service request we made was promptly dealt with professionally and exceeded our expectations. Please know that we are VERY happy customers and so long as we are renting, AH4R is our company of choice. We love our home!”
“I’ve had an excellent renting experience from AH4R. From the approval process to move in was flawless. The staff is always professional and quick to respond. I highly recommend renting from AH4R!”
