Hi, my partner and I are in the process of relocating to the Reno area. We are wanting to rent for a year before finding a more permanent home (although if we find a place we love right away, may want to stay longer), so we can explore and find the neighborhood that fits us best.

We are coming with jobs in hand, both working from home, so no worries regarding location. We are hoping to rent a house or townhouse. We like older areas, have no kids so don't care about schools or school ratings, don't want/like modern planned communities (with accompanying intrusive HOA's). Can someone point me to property management companies that rent homes in such areas? Are there property management companies that are easier to work with/more responsive? Ones that are a nightmare or only handle properties that students at UNR are looking for (not that there's anything wrong with that, just not what we need)?

We've been long term renters, adults closer to retiring than college, living in the same property over 5 years. We're well aware there are property management companies that are great, and those that have no business working with the general public or have no care for anything other than $$, and are not responsive to home care needs. So hoping locals can steer us in the right direction. Thanks!

Only "houses" I know of are owner-managed, and occupied. Seems to be an on-going shortage right now (at least that is what the new people want you to think), with rentals pretty scarce. Many apartment complexes are at capacity. I did find this, though:

Diversified Property Management, Inc.

Good luck!

I think it might be a difficult job to find housing here remotely. The best properties are advertised by word of mouth, neighbors (sign on lawn), and local social media because Reno is still a small town. If you want to avoid the suburban scene I would look into the Midtown area. Lots of up and coming eateries, pubs, boutique stores. Housing is currently at a premium and the most expensive it's been in quite a few years. Rentals are hard to come by. It might be worth your while to spend a week here driving around, finding the right neighborhood for you, and looking for those local rental units.
