About Us                              

Locating and screening the quality residents is essential for you to get the most value from your investment. As actively involved committee members with the Investment Housing Committee at the California Association of Realtors, we know all the new laws and local ordinances that are being proposed and how they will affect YOUR INVESTMENT, your rental property.  Los Angeles still has a moratorium - Chula Vista is proposing making you criminally liable if you “harass” your tenant (that is, ask for the rent to be paid!) You can’t afford to make a mistake by trying to management your own rental in this environment in California.  With our affordable flat fee pricing, you CAN AFFORD Essential Property Management.  We are experts in maintaining your quality home, duplex, and Specializing in condominiums.  We also manage small HOAs!   Contact us today at (858) 901-0198.

We are also REALTORS who will keep you informed of your home’s value and work with you to sell when the time is right to exit the rental market.
