Dana Point Property Management

Giving Landlords in Dana Point CA the Service They Deserve

If you’re a residential or commercial landlord, hiring a property management company is a great way to save yourself the huge amounts of time and hassle that come with managing the property yourself. However, you may have been startled at the lengthy contracts, hidden fees, and substandard levels of service offered by many of the property management companies operating in the Dana Point, CA area.

At Genuine Property Management, we’ve taken the initiative to completely shake up the property management industry and offer our clients something completely different instead. Our residential property management and commercial property management offer the best value and the highest level of service because it’s been designed with you – the landlord – in mind.






Introducing Our Unique 360 Service Model

Dana Point Property ManagementRather than operate out of a small office and deal with our vendors and contractors remotely, we’ve relocated to a huge co-working space in Westend Costa Mesa.

This means everyone we deal with or do business with now has the opportunity to work alongside us. This collaborative approach increases our level of service and benefits our clients with better pricing and more reliable vendors.

With almost 400 properties acquired in fewer than three years, we know this model works.

We’ve Done Away with Lengthy Contracts

Unlike other residential or commercial property management companies, we are the only one that offers a true month-to-month contract. On top of that, we also offer a 60-day 100% money-back guarantee. This gives our clients the peace of mind that if they aren’t free, they are free to walk away at any point.

Know the Costs Upfront

Nearly all Dana Point, CA commercial and residential property management companies charge sneaky fees on top of their regular monthly fees.

Small charges for administration, key cutting, and other little jobs can end up being expensive.

Genuine Property Management has done away with this. What you pay each month for your property is all you will ever pay. We may not be the cheapest, but we will almost certainly be the best value. Our yearly research of 125 property management companies ensures we stay ahead of the competition.

Our fees are simple. We charge the following:

Commercial property management:

  • 5% per unit

Residential property management:

  • 7% for one home
  • 5% for 2-4 units
  • 6% for 5+ units

Which Services are Included?

Genuine Property Management is proud to offer our clients:

  • Our unique 360 service model
  • 24/7 leasing call center: being available 24/7 means we have more tenants secured quicker.
  • Great property descriptions: honest but engaging property descriptions make our ads shine.
  • Professional photos: our photographers will show off your property in its best light.
  • 360 video tour: we’re the only property management company to invest in virtual tours. Having these available to prospective tenants increases the chances of leasing your property in a faster time frame.
  • 24-hour maintenance center: poor or slow maintenance is the top reason that tenants move out. We ensure your tenants are never left hanging.
  • Pet Screening: With three out of four tenants owning pets, a high-quality 3rd-party pet screening service is essential.

Other services included are:

  • A secure online portal for landlords to keep track of their statements, payments, documents and more
  • Same day deposits
  • Online rent and proceeds payments
  • Repair surveys
  • Automatic renters’ insurance
  • Our sister company Classic Realty for buying and selling property

Everything we offer has been designed to meet the needs of our Dana Point, CA landlords. High-quality ads bring tenants in quickly and reduce the length of time your property is vacant. Fast maintenance and easy rent payment options keep tenants happy and reduce the tenancy turnover.

Whether you’re a commercial or residential property landlord, you won’t find better value or a better-run property management business in the Dana Point, CA area.

Being a vendor I see many properties managed by Genuine Property Management. I find their properties to always be in great condition and well-maintained. Their staff is diligent and works hard to take care of their clients. They are always easy to reach by telephone, text or email and if I have to leave a message they are quick to respond. This is a solid property management company!

We began utilizing Marcel and his team over 2 years ago, to manage a rental property near Lake Mission Viejo and were very pleased at his personal and hands on approach. The management fees are very reasonable. His company now manages two other rental properties of our close friends, and the experience we have all had with his team has been excellent. On top of that, the properties are inspected regularly to ensure that they are kept in good condition by the renters, and all renters are very thoroughly screened. His office uses a convenient digital system that we can access to view monthly statements, repair documents and other reports. We highly recommend Genuine PM to anyone looking for someone to manage their property!

I've dealt with a number of property management companies as a tenant over my lifetime and I must say GPM has been one of the easier ones to deal with. From scheduling to view a property, to the application process and even scheduling maintenance it's been a very seamless process. I initially dealt with Jonathan which is no longer at the company but Matt who took over has been just easy to coordinate with. Thanks for taking care of my service request quickly!

Genuine was heaven sent for my wife and I. We live outside of CA and after our longtime PM decided to change business paths we were forced to interview for a new PM, which can be quite distressing. We were concerned we would have to sign with a less than satisfying PM because none seemed to satisfying all of our needs. Finally we landed on the phone with Marcel and without knowing he immediately impressed us with his approach, attitude and ability to listen. We did continue our other PM interviews but nobody could touch Marcel and since signing up with Genuine we have been nothing short of happy and fully satisfied. Always professional, always responsive and always on top of everything. Genuine is the best. Thanks to Marcel and his awesome team at Genuine!

At first I was skeptical that they would be able to do all they said they would do but they have far exceeded all our expectations! We're most happy with how well they communicate everything that is going on and how they gave us our own online account to see the details of our property at all times! We couldn't be happier with them!

We are pleased, and grateful, for the wonderful customer service Genuine Property Management provides. Marcel has always been on top of the details, prompt in his response and is extremely professional and knowledgeable. Although we've never met him in person, he strikes as a very thoughtful person, another excellent quality when you deal with people all day. Marcel is a pleasure to work with and eliminates the potential stress that would be there if we were trying to manage our property in all on our own. We would highly recommend Marcel, if you are looking for a rental or if you need a company to manage your rental property. Thank you so much indeed!

I called Marcel based on the recommendation of my realtor who wanted to make sure that I was taken care of by the best property management company to list my new Corona del Mar condo with. Marcel immediately started the process of listing the condo for rent, and I was connected to their online portal as an owner. In about a week, the rental listing was ready for posting, and it included a 3D video for prospective tenants. I am so happy with the speedy and professional rental listing of my property!
