Meet The Team

Rent from a Family Team!

William Weiss, the owner and President of Albany City Rentals and Albany City Properties, began in the real estate industry in 2003 with renting vacation properties in the Adirondacks. William lives locally in the City of Albany. In July 2009, William purchased the first rental property on Myrtle Ave in Albany. Two years later, a second property was purchased, and just a few months thereafter, the third and many more were to follow.

John Weiss, brother of William, the owner of Weiss Construction and a NYS licensed home inspector with Weiss Home Inspection brings his years of expertise and talent to Albany City Rentals.  John ensures that all our properties exceed building code standards and exceed the company’s apartment standards.  John is our Vice President and construction manager behind all of our renovations.

William and John are proud to be working along side their mother, Linda and other family members to support the business and contribute to Albany’s Neighborhood Revitalization.  Linda is our new client welcoming specialist and interior design coordinator.

The pride on the Providence Street renovation in 2012, is one of our major accomplishments. Purchased in 2012, as a home that needed major repair, William saw the potential in this property, and he devoted his expertise to renovate the building and provide another amazing student rental for Albany’s college students.  In 2017, the Weiss brothers rehabbed 476 Morris Street and the Albany Times Union wrote an article on the accomplishments.

William is a recent graduate from The College of Saint Rose, and he rented student housing while attending Saint Rose from 2004-2006. William realized that students and families could benefit better by having quality student rentals for the rents being charged in the Albany area. Our rental prices are lower than other properties in the area for all the amenities that we include.

William has been determined in purchasing rental properties, vacant lots, homes, and investing thousands of dollars in renovations in each project, and helping to revitalize each neighborhood where the properties are located. This brings a better quality of life for all tenants and residents who live in these neighborhoods.
