      I have been using Cal-Prop Since 1990. They have always been responsive and addressed any questions I had. When work is needed on my buildings, they attend to it quickly. In addition, they follow-up with making sure the work is done correctly. Many times, they have gone above and beyond the scope of our contract. They have integrity. I would recommend them to anyone.

      During the one cold day in San Diego - we managed to throw our apartment into a black out, running a trusty space heater. Since we work from home, this was quite the conundrum. Cal-Prop sent out maintenance (Chris) the same day, actually within the hour! Chris determined which outlet caused the issue and as he did, discovered that the majority of our outlets were in need of an update. Admittedly, our apartment is vintage (and we love it that way), but we don't use all of the outlets so we didn't realize the extent of the wear and tear on them, especially with the salt air which seems to destroy everything faster around here! Anyway, Chris did an incredibly job of replacing those, fixing 3 light fixtures in the apartment too whose wiring was causing them not to work (not a bulb issue) and also fixed the 2nd bedroom door that had expanded with heat and retracted with the cold, so much that it didn't fit in it's frame, flush. We're very happy with the speedy call to action from our Property Manager, Jaime & Chris' handy work. Thank you!

      The maintenance guy, Tyler was a pre Christmas angel. I had about 4 things go wrong in the apartment and while he thought he was coming here to just fix blinds, he took care of everything else I needed in the apartment. He was so kind, super quick, and as quiet as he could be (I work from home and was on a call). He’s an amazing worker.

      When looking for my apartment I contacted multiple property management companies. Although I did not choose a property with Cal-Prop, Crystal Kennedy still gave me an informative tour and reminded me to stay in touch if my current living situation needs to change.

      Called in an issue with shower doors and spoke with Jaime who was friendly, empathetic and professional. Less than 24 hours later I got a text from Anthony who coordinated a time to meet and then arrived on time, as promised. Anthony not only made the repair, his thoughtfulness made the shower area better than ever! Immediately following the repair, Crystal, our Property Manager, followed up to ensure the repairs were done right. (Worth mentioning is Crystal's always sunny disposition! A real pleasure to work with.) Crystal, Jaime, and Anthony all went above and beyond in their attention to detail, coordination, and flawless execution. I strongly recommend Cal-Prop to anyone looking for their next San Diego apartment.
