It’s an affluent area, known for its premium real estate, excellent schools, fabulous weather, and warm, sandy beaches.

Marketing and advertising: Empty properties mean lost revenue, so we make it our top priority to get your property on the market and find the right tenant for your unique 90266 or 90267 rental. From local advertising that includes highly visible signage and local ads, to our incredible web presence (we list on numerous rental websites) and network affiliations, we’ve proven that we can find the ideal tenant in record time.
Tenant Screening: Finding a respectful and financially responsible tenant for your particular property is a critical piece of the rental process. We conduct extensive background and credit checks to ensure your prospective tenant is free of negative credit issues and past rental catastrophes. We’ll also conduct an employment and income verification, and retain identification documents – all designed to ensure that you are paired with a responsible and capable renter.
Management and consultative services: We offer guidance and advice on how to best prepare your home or commercial establishment for potential renters. Our local experts are familiar with the nuances of the Manhattan Beach rental scene, making it easy to price your rental competitively. We are happy to answer all of your questions so that the rental process is lucrative and free of headaches.
Maintenance and repairs: With any rental property, the potential for unforeseen home repairs and maintenance issues is always a reality.
