Last week I toured a 19 unit apartment complex in Castro Valley California with a friend and buyer named Mark. We brought along Karen Bergendahl from CWP Property Managment in San Leandro to help us evaluate the property and determine upside potential. Karen is one of the few real professionals in the apartment business who actually adds value.
I have worked with Karen now on two multi-family projects. She has gone well above the call of duty and met with me and my prospects on numerous occasions to help us review income and expense on various properties. It’s very difficult to find an outstanding proeprty manager. Most owners complain about their off-site managers and feel they don’t adequately protects them from spiraling expenses. Karen is the opposite. She will actually spend time with clients and prospects even before they have signed a contract to work with her company.
Incidentally, CWP Management has been in business for nearly 40 years in the East Bay! They not only mange properties but they are active owners and investors themselves. If you own a multi-family property in San Francisco’s East Bay and want to find out what really excellent service is all about, give Karen a call at 510-352-6310.
