A member of our staff is on call for emergencies when our office is closed. If you have an emergency such as a flood when our office is closed, someone from our office is on call to handle the emergency. They will first determine if the situation is an emergency, and then take the proper action. Emergencies are determined by the possibility of property damage, or a health/safety issue. If you have an emergency after hours, please call 858-695-9400 and follow the prompts to report the emergency–please do NOT submit an online request for an emergency.
Who to Contact The property you are renting is managed by a team of three property managers:
Senior Property Manager: The Senior Property Manager is the supervisor of the team, and is responsible for legal issues. They handle rent collections, pre-move out walk throughs, move out walk throughs, deposit disposition preparation, and evictions. Due to the nature of this position, a large percentage of their job is conducted outside of the office.
Property Manager: Your Property Manager is primarily in the office. Some of their specific tasks include application processing, lease preparation and renewals as well as HOA violations.
Assistant Property Manager: Your Assistant Property Manager is typically in the office. Their primary task is to handle maintenance. They will take all incoming maintenance requests and follow established procedures.
