How to Choose the Right Property Manager

Partnering with a property management company can help you save money, keep your rental home profitable, and say goodbye to the stress that comes from managing your own home. Of course, not all property managers offer the same great service, which is why it pays to carefully consider your options before committing to a particular firm. If you’re ready to take that step and wondering how to narrow down your options, consider the following simple keys.

Transparent Pricing

An honest property manager should always provide transparent pricing information. Turning a profit in your San Diego rental home can prove challenging if you don’t know what sort of management bill to expect at the end of the month. Some managers nickel and dime their customers, tacking on hidden fees for various services provided throughout the month. At RPM, we’re honest with our clients about all expenses associated with keeping their property in top shape.


Anyone can claim to be a great property manager, but it takes years of hard work and experience to truly understand the ins and outs of this business. RPM has been partnering with local property owners since 1975, and in that time, we’ve helped hundreds of our clients to maximize their earnings and maintain the value of their investment. A startup might make big promises, but don’t expect those promises to hold up when things get rough.

A Trustworthy Team

When you partner with a property manager, you’re authorizing someone else to act on your behalf. Some property managers hide behind their company name, rather than highlighting the strength of their staff members. For peace of mind, you want to know who is responsible for keeping your property in top shape and satisfying your clients.

At Real Property Management, our staff is made up of a diverse group of talented real estate professionals. Have questions about our accounting procedures? Simply give our bookkeeper Lori a call. Experiencing maintenance problems and need advice? Our Maintenance Supervisor Josh will be happy to help you out.

We treat our clients like partners. We want to help you succeed, as it’s the only way our business can move forward. We strive to build a healthy relationship with every one of our clients.

Local Knowledge

Plenty of big name firms try to enter the property management industry, simply to make a buck or two off of their clients. Unfortunately, the big guys can’t offer customized service and they often lack the local knowledge that can make a property manager such a smart decision.

At Real Property Management, we call North San Diego home ourselves. We understand the unique challenges of our local market, and we help our customers to confront those challenges every day. We can highlight the best parts of local neighborhoods for interested tenants, while simultaneously assisting clients in pricing their rentals correctly.
