We may be leading the pack with our management style and best practices. Others may chase us, but they will never catch us as we’re constantly improving (true story). If you can find anyone that provides better services for less money, hire them.

Research

Every year we study over 200 property management companies in Orange County to compare us to them. So we know we provide the most services for the greatest value. That’s worth sharing!

No Long-Term Contract

No one wants long-term contracts, so we got rid of them. We may be the only month-to-month property manager in Orange County. We feel we need to earn your business everyday.

100% Money Back Guarantee

We realize landlords may be skittish about trusting a stranger, so a money back guarantee helps to ease minds… No other company puts their money on the line.

24-Hour Maintenance Center

Delayed repairs is the number one reason tenants move. So, our 24/7 repair center is always there to protect your Orange County rental property (like Batman, but different). We like happy renters.

Renters' Insurance Coverage

Over 99% of our tenants have insurance protecting you with the first $100,000 of liability coverage (compared to the national average of just 27%). It’s a never ending task, but important.

Pet Screening

To limit landlord liability, all applicants (even those with no pets) must complete pet questionnaires and follow our no pet/pet policy, click here to view it. To start the screening process, click here.

In-House Collections

Less than 1% of our tenants ever go to collections, and with outside collectors success at a mere 10%, we handle it since landlords see Genuine as the collector, so tenants pay 70% of the time or won’t move.

Deposit Free Renting

Qualified renters can either pay the standard deposit equal to one month’s rent or buy deposit insurance equal to two month’s rent for a low monthly fee. Properties rent faster and you get twice the protection.

3D Video Tours

Renters love walking the house with their mouse! Amazingly, no other company spends the money to provide tenants with a quality 3D tour. Click here to view the magic.

Professional Photos

Renters decide with their eyes, so our great photos and 3D videos are listed on Zillow, Trulia, Realtor, Homes, and Apartments.com plus 25 others for the greatest exposure.

Great Descriptions

Every listing has creative descriptions to capture tenant interest. Being truthful, yet colorful, generates interest and reduces vacancy periods – putting more rent money in your pocket.

Repair Surveys

To ensure all repairs are done timely and to tenants satisfaction, we send tenants a survey after each repair. We’ll know if our service providers are timely, friendly, and professional or not.

Online Rent and Proceeds

Rent is paid with online bank transfer, credit card or check. Rent proceeds are paid on the 10th of each month by ACH transfer. Of course, we can always mail you a check too.

Owner Portal

You get your own secure, online portal to access all statements, documents, income and contributions. Your portal provides complete transparency, so you have everything at all times.

Same Day Deposits

All rent checks are deposited same day using our remote deposit machine. Sure, we get rubber checks, but when we do, we know about it fast so we can bounce back faster!

Bright Mind Benefits

Everything is about controlling costs and maximizing your income. Our strong marketing, tenant screening, client care and operational efficiencies benefit you – our beloved landlord!

When Buying or Selling

When you use our sister company, Classic Realty, we’ll give you 20% of the seller paid commission when you buy – and we’ll list properties for just 1.5%. Click here for more info.

Working with Genuine Property Management was very easy. They were all the time helpful.

I own a four Plex in Huntington Beach that was managed by another property management company. They did not do inspections, they did not check for mold and other safety hazards, and they didn’t even make sure I had proper smoke detectors. When these issues came to my attention I knew I needed to make a change in management companies. I spent hours and hours doing research on the Internet trying to find the best property management company at a fair price. I came across genuine property management and hired them back in March 2020. Do yourself a favor, stop doing looking and hire this company. Marcel has been an absolute pleasure to work with. His staff is well trained and great at serving my needs and the needs of my tenants. I feel confident that they will do proper inspections and check for Safety issues within the property. I’m not going anywhere else.

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!

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!
