Property rental searching can be an exhausting and tedious process. Our new website is an attempt at bringing some ease and fun to the searching process.

The Hignell Companies announce the expansion of, a user-friendly website designed to make searching for a rental property in Chico and Paradise- a more interactive and enjoyable experience. “Rental searching can be an exhausting and tedious process,” says Phil Larios, President and COO of The Hignell Companies. “Our new website is an attempt at bringing some ease and fun to the searching process. And, as far as we know, is the only website of its kind in Chico.”

Visitors to will first notice the website’s slogan, “Making Apartment Searching Funner*,” located at the top of the page with a disclaimer “*we know ‘funner’ isn’t a word but let’s face it, it’s way more fun” located at the bottom of the page. The main portion of the website is the online interactive map that highlights all of the rental properties located in Chico and Paradise – that are managed by The Hignell Companies. By clicking on an apartment complex, visitors will be directed to an apartment search page on The Hignell Companies’ main website. On this search page, visitors can browse potential apartments with the following search criteria: “Property Type” (Apartment, Duplex, or Multiplex), “Number of Bedrooms” (1 to 3), “Minimum Rent” ($600 to $2,000), and “Maximum Rent” ($600 to $2,000). After selecting the appropriate criteria, visitors are then led to a page detailing all of The Hignell Companies’ managed apartment complexes that match their designated options. Visitors will also find some links to video tours of apartment complexes in Chico. These creative video tours enable potential tenants to see various apartments without leaving their computers.

In addition, the website now includes rental properties in Paradise as well as single-family homes. “We knew we wanted to expand our rental searches beyond Chico and apartment complexes,” said Larios. “Renters can now successfully search for rental properties located in Chico and Paradise, including single-family homes.” The website also features notable places in Chico and Paradise scattered throughout its maps of rental properties. These places include One-Mile Recreation Area in Lower Bidwell Park, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Enloe Medical Center, California State University, Chico, and more. The Hignell Companies hope that including these notable places will inform tenants in rental properties about the diversity and beauty of the city of Chico, as well as grow in them a love for their hometown.
