Typically those folks who advertise in the paper are looking for good tenants. My clients have been very successful finding rentals in Castro Valley through the Forum. You can pick up a copy of this little local paper at the donut shop called Rudy's on Redwood Road. It's a local hangout and they make great donuts.
