      Owner Communication

      Clear communication keeps you in the loop about the financial health of your properties. Our system allows you to customize the amount of communication you prefer about your asset starting with our Level One Owners who just want to interact with the monthly statements and ask us to apply our policies and procedures without much owner-manager interaction. Level Five Clients want to be involved daily and/or anytime anything significant arises.

      I had an excellent experience with Keith! From the first contact, he was incredibly kind and helpful. Keith scheduled a visit to the apartment and made sure I had all the information I needed. During the visit, he was very professional and showed me all the details of the apartment. His customer service was exceptional and made my search for a new home easier and pleasant. I am very happy with Keith's service and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a new place to rent with Cal-Prop!

      We were in need of an apartment and saw a listing for Cal Prop. I contacted them to schedule a viewing, and Kate responded promptly. She was very easy to talk to and asked me all the things I needed in an apartment – move-in dates and my budget. Kate really made this whole process easy and hassle-free 🙂 We all know how stressful it is looking for an apartment, especially when you don't have much time outside of work. Thank you, Kate, for doing all the hard work for us!

      Moving is such a stressful time but Bobby made it so easy for me! Most people I reached out to wouldn’t even respond but Bobby was quick, professional, very communicative and clearly wanted to help. He got me into a showing right away, listened to what I wanted and didn’t want and ultimately led me to an apartment I absolutely love! He still checks in and is always fast to respond any questions I may have. Best property manager I’ve worked with hands down! 10/10 🌟 Since moving in I also had some maintenance done and Tyler did such a great job. He was timely and efficient in his communication and work! I’ve heard poor things about general maintenance when living in apartment buildings but I’ve had a great experience living here so far!

      Maria, my landlord, has been nothing but helpful from Cal-prop. She returns my calls and service requests in a timely manner, while sending the necessary people to help when needed. Moving in was a breeze and she was a great communicator throughout the process. I have appreciated and valued working with Maria and cal-prop.

      I first reached out to Bobby in late April 2024, and he helped me secure a place very quickly. He was super nice, professional, and very quick to respond even when I bothered him outside of working hours. Unfortunately, for reasons unrelated to Bobby or Cal-Prop, that arrangement fell through. In late June 2024, Bobby texted me unprompted about a new available unit that was exactly like what I was looking for back in April. While he obviously wants business, I still appreciated that he reached out to me personally. Again, he was super nice, professional, and went out of his way to assist me. Fortunately, that arrangement did go through and Bobby made it quick and easy. Would recommend 10/10

From the very first phone call, Kate was attentive, friendly, and very responsive to all my questions, concerns and requests. She made every effort to make sure I got a great place for a great price. Thanks to Kate and Alexis’s help, I was able to find a safe, clean and affordable place in a highly desirable area. I highly recommend Cal-Prop Management to anyone who is looking for a stress free way to find your next home.

      My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Catherine during our search for a new place. I cannot speak highly enough about the exceptional customer service we received. She was so nice and patient with us. Catherine was with us every step of the way. Even though it didn't work out with us for other reasons because of our current lease. She was very understanding and put in a lot of effort for us. I highly recommend her to anyone that is searching for their new home. She will take good care of you. THANK YOU Catherine!

      This is the 2nd time we’ve had maintenance come by in the few years we’ve lived in these apartments (Oceanside) and both times our maintenance tech was Tyler. Extremely professional and communicative with us as to what he’s doing. He is very clean during his work and gets the fixes done quick. No reoccurring have come from his fixes and we will definitely be requesting him if we need any future maintenance.
