About Our Company

 

We started by purchasing foreclosed properties in early 2009 – selling some and holding and renting others.

After failing to find a good property management company in the High Desert of Southern California, we decided to fill the void by creating a company which could provide all the services that individual investors need to purchase, rehabilitate and manage investment property in the High Desert.

We pride ourselves on providing ethical, transparent, and affordable property management services to our clients.
