  • Our in-house team gives you better pricing and faster service to minimize vacancies while retaining tenants.

Quality Tenants

    Our proprietary tenant screening process, quick turn practices, and all hands-on deck approach enables us to find and qualify quality tenants fast. We gear up for peak season by increasing staffing every year.

      • We pre-lease 90% of our upcoming vacancies.
      • We hold open houses to drive more traffic.
      • Thorough tenant screening ensures high quality tenants. We conduct a strict screening process, subjecting identity, employment, credit score, crime, and tenancy history to careful examination.
      • Online applications, rent payment, maintenance requests and forms for customer convenience.

      Once we secure high quality tenants, we retain them.

      • 90% of all tenant maintenance requests are fulfilled within two working days.
      • Your tenants have access to one point of contact to address their needs.

      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.

      You will have a single point of contact at Cal-Prop that will answer all of your questions whether they are about tenants, financial reports, maintenance or general questions about the state of the market and the ever changing legal landscape.

      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.

      I have been a client of Cal-Prop for over 33 years. In that time Cal-Prop has not only managed my real estate portfolio, but they have also given me guidance and helped me find new properties. I have done 1031 exchanges which would have been difficult without Cal-Prop. In managing my properties, they have been proactive and always responsive to my questions and requests. I think 33 years says it all.

      Shay and Crystal oversee our properties and we are happy with the overall results. It’s been challenging to recover from COVID-19 vacancies and turnover of tenants. Within several months, they have organized and improved occupancy.

      I had such a good experience with Cal-Prop Management during a recent viewing in IB on Calla Avenue. Jesus was such a pleasure to work with. He was professional and attentive and just had a really great attitude. Kind of refreshing to see somebody who likes and is passionate about what they do. He really listened to all the things I was looking for and had great attention to detail. I’m new to the area so it was really helpful to speak with somebody who was knowledgeable of the area and current rental market. I wasn’t able to go through with the rental process due to unforeseen circumstances but definitely look forward to working with Cal-Prop and Jesus again when I am able to. Thank you so much for all of your help!
