Advantage Property Management’s parent company, Advantage Property, was incorporated in 2004, providing brokerage and mortgage services from its Slater Avenue office in Fountain Valley. Advantage Property Management was formalized shortly thereafter out of a necessity to assist many investment property owners and Association Directors who were dissatisfied with their managers or were too busy to manage their own properties and Associations.
“Advantage” serves all Southern California Counties. The office culture has a collaborative nature, a desire to mentor, and a strong passion for client service. Advantage Property Management is a team-based work environment with highly-skilled and carefully vetted associates who closely follow their clients’ financial position, keeping an eye on market rents, sales, and property expenses. Advantage Property manages Associations, multi-unit residential properties, single family residences, and commercial properties. Though relatively small, Advantage manages over 100’s of properties, including several Home Owners Associations.
Advantage has a business plan to remain small enough to enjoy every client relationship. Each account is tailored to suit the client’s own preferences, whether it be high tech or high touch. It uses efficient processes and state of the art technologies in order to devote the time and attention necessary to properly maintain each property, account, and the complete satisfaction of its clientele.
