> Owners

I purposely limit the homes that I manage to twenty and no more, as anything more than that and I would be unable to devote enough attention to each indivual clients home.  I have over 10 years experience in property managent and have built a reliable and consistent method of choosing tenants and a portfolio of affordable and quality trades people to attend to any maintenance that may arise. Please contact me by going to the contact page.

My motivation. Your Advantage.


I came to real estate with the intention of making a difference.  A difference in the way property managers deal with their clients and tenants, treating both with respect and efficiency. A difference in how realtors interact with new home buyers that may or may not be able to afford a home.  I treat all all of my clients fairly and with genuine friendliness all the while assuring the best service you could possibly receive in Santa Cruz.

Real Estate is a passion for me.  I have surrounded myself with every aspect of home ownership in the past, working as a Structural Engineer, Furniture Designer, Finish Carpenter, Interior Designer, and even House Painter.  My knowledge of the industry knows more depths than the average agent, and I use that for you in all my dealings.

I love this community and I want to see it thrive, and part of that is helping those who want a house in Santa Cruz County make the transition here.  Getting you plugged in to local groups and introducing you to the neighbors is important to make a cohesive local family, and something that I will help you do in every step of the way.


What is your management fee?

I charge a 10% of gross rent management fee for full time rentals and 18% for vacation rentals.  There is no other hidden charges, no fees for placement of tenants, no costs to oversee work done. I encourage you to do a price comparison to see that these rates are competitive.

How do you do your accounts?

Every home under my management gets a trust fund opened for it at Bay Federal Credit Union.  Keeping every account seperate and clear is important to me which allows the owner to get up to the day reports of every deposit and withdrawl.  I email a report once a month with all activity on the account and a running total of earnings for tax accounting purposes.  Want to see a sample statement? Please contact me for more details.

How do you deal with problem tenants?

I am well versed and understand the letter of the law when it comes to tenant rights and I follow it exactly because that is the only way to protect the owner and myself legally.  I think this is the sign of a good Property Manager.  As of writing this there is several steps to removing problem tenants that I am well aware of.

Will the rent be enough to cover my mortgage?

Most of the time yes. It of course depends on several factors, like how much you put down, the cost, the location, the type of mortgage, and the interest rate.  Right now it is a lot easier to cover all costs of the home with rent income that it has ever been before.  Please contact me if you'd like me to go over this with you as it is a case by case basis.

I pride myself on being a fair and approachable property manager.  I put all contracts out in the open and encourage tenants to undertake the education and understand what rights they do and don't have.  Communication is the most important aspect of the relationship and I suggest you read what I'm telling owners above.  If you are in need of a home to live in, please do not hesitate to contact me the contact page.  My portfolio of rentals is below..

Do you require credit checks?

I require that every applicant provide me with a credit check and proof of finances as well as a filled out rental application.

When is my rent due?

You will have 3 days past the end of the month to postmark your checks or pay online.  Rent will be considered delinquent after 7 days.  For a full article on tenant rights view this guide.

Who do I call for repairs?

I provide every one of the households I manage with a comprehensive contact list of excellent tradesmen. Depending on the lease, you may be responsible for the repairs.  Typically you will notify me of the issue and it will be taken care of within a week or sooner depending on the nature of the call.

Where can I find your currently available rentals?

My properties page has detailed information about each property and their availability.
