Owner Testimonials

“We have been extremely pleased to have Cal-Prop manage our 8 unit apartment in San Diego for several years. Cal-Prop President Rick Thornton managed an extensive construction and building upgrade for us. The property has been maintained in good condition and the rents were kept in good accord with market values. We recommend Cal-Prop highly.”

“I have had the good fortune to have chosen Rick Thornton and Cal-Prop to manage several of my properties. Rick and his team have always done a great job and kept us at the highest rental rates and occupancy levels possible. Their old tenant to new tenant turnovers are/were quick and painless with the down or vacant time as quick as it gets. Their repairs and maintenance fees have always been reasonable and honest. Rick’s and his staff’s communication with me on all/any issues have been stellar to say the least. We have had great experience with Rick Thornton and recommend all of the Cal-Prop entities to anyone seeking a property manager and/or real estate sales agent/company.”

“Nothing but good things to say . . . I have dealt with many rental agencies and property management companies, I am a long time SD county real estate agent and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Cal-Prop to handle my clients for all their rental service needs. He has never let me down or any of my owners; I even recommend all my rental folks to them. In short, I’ve always had a great experience with Cal-Prop Management. You should give them a try, you’ll be happy you did.”

“Cal-Prop Shay are a great team. I have been with Cal-Prop for several years and have had a consistently positive experience with them. Lance: high energy, good design ideas, quick turn-around, good follow-through, professional, can make almost anything happen, unflappable, excellent problem-solving. Shay: reliable, patient, good communication skills, efficient, feel attended to if there’s a question or problem, excellent response time through phone or email. In my experience they advocate for both tenant and owner. Thank you!”

“For anyone contemplating using Cal-Prop as their property management company, I highly recommend that you do so. I have used Cal-Prop for 4 years now and Shay Barry is my property manager and have nothing but praise for his efforts and reliability. As a constantly deployed Naval Officer, currently living overseas, Shay’s responsiveness and commitment have truly impressed me and provided me peace of mind. He is extremely reliable, runs problems to the ground and does a great job of keeping me informed of the status of my property. Cal-Prop is responsive to tenants concerns, provides prompt maintenance techs and is a very professional company.”

“We worked with Lance Miller at Cal-Prop Management to rent a house for our family in San Diego. Lance was very professional and thorough. Cal-Prop is a well-organized agency and we feel confident that they will continue to assist us with our rental needs. I highly recommend Cal-Prop to owners and tenants who are looking to work with experienced professionals.”

I couldn’t be more pleased with the service Cal-Prop provided. He took all the worry and frustration out of renting my condo AND got a great tenant within 2 weeks! I would gladly recommend Lance to anyone looking for a professional property management to assist with their rental. Thank you so much Cal-Prop!

“For the past 7 years we have had the good fortune of having Cal Prop manage our single family home in San Diego. Shay Barry is our Property Manager and I cannot say enough good things about him! He is professional, thorough, pro-active, willing to go the extra mile, and truly cares about us as his clients. He always presents us with options when it comes to having maintenance done and he sends us pictures of the work that is done. With Shay as our Property Manager I don’t have to worry about my house. I am a Realtor in another state and so I know that finding an excellent property manager can make all the difference to an owner. Shay is at the top of his game in this business and we could not be more appreciative of all he does! We look forward to many more years of working together with Shay and Cal Prop!”

“Very rarely have I had the opportunity to say “They were awesome”. . . Look at the timeline: we closed Escrow on this apartment in San Diego on a Friday, when I was out of town in Washington, met our good man on the Saturday. He buzzed around the apartment with his indefatigable camera, went through all the myriad details of the lease agreement, patiently explaining to us all the subtle nuances of renting out a place. He rings us up on TUESDAY, (!!) just 2~3 days later to let us know, he has successfully rented out the place. This is simply amazing service. He is amazingly collegial, and you couldn’t find a better person to work with. Unhesitatingly and very highly recommend his camaraderie and professionalism.”

“Just started working with Cal-Prop, and so far so good : my place has been rented out with a minimum of vacancy, and he’s been responsive and knowledgeable in our interactions. Looking forward to more of the same!”

“I have had a great experience with Cal-Prop Management. Eric Paulin (Property Manager) handles my unit and has been very responsive and attentive. He goes above and beyond, not only making sure that work orders are completed in a timely manner, but checking back to ensure everything was done right. The maintenance has been very friendly and knowledgeable. Jose Cortez (Maintenance Tech) is such a nice guy and really makes me feel at ease and confident that nothing is going to happen because Cal Prop has everything covered. Great team!”
Nic Frigo

“Cal-Prop is the only company you want to talk to if you are looking for property management. He is very professional and extremely efficient at renting a property. He is always available to allay any concerns you might have. We went to Cal-Prop to handle a rental property after we had been trying to manage it ourselves. We had another well known management company prior to this and it took them months to rent our property. They continued to charge us fees even though they could or would not get it rented. They were impossible to get a hold of, no one would return our calls. Lance on the other hand came in after our tenant left us in a lurch and made everything easy and took care of all the details. Our property was rented in a couple of weeks. If you need property management call . . . Cal-Prop.”
Will P.

“I was trying to rent out my condo by myself but found the process cumbersome and time consuming. I was having no success at getting qualified renters. I remembered using Cal Prop as a renter over 10 years ago and had a good experience. So I finally decided to contact Cal Prop and left a message about my situation and within minutes I received a call back. I met with him the next day and within 2 weeks he had qualified tenants for my condo signed up for a 1 year lease. He is very responsive and quick with any follow up or questions that I have. They take care of the WHOLE process- from showing the condo, background checks, periodic inspections, billing, legal contracts and tenant applications, etc. I’m very happy with Cal Prop’s customer service and would recommend them to BOTH renters and property owners looking to rent their place.”
Larry Miller

“As a homeowner I was apprehensive allowing a property management company to take care of my property. I heard of this management company through family and decided to use them. I am glad I was paired with Lance Miller. He is great and very friendly. He addressed my concerns within 1-2 business days. I found a renter within a short period of time. I feel confident with Lance Miller managing my place!”

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.

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

As a first time renter navigating the challenging San Diego rental market, I was so lucky to find Cal-Prop Management. 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.
