Ed and Hawk Management took care of a property for us for 3 years while I was out of the country. I looked into 10 prop mngrs, boiled it down to 2, and went with Ed. Good price, good ref's, guaranteed he would deal with problems(rodent infestation at the tiime) and take great care of the property. Ed was fantastic! I cannot imagine a better property manager. He was a true godsend and I would give him 10 stars if the rating went higher!Mar 11, 2018Verified
Having been in the single family rental business for many years, I have seen a few different management styles. I have got to tell you that Ed, owner of Hawk Management is by far the most educated, caring, responsible and professional manager I have seen. He is up to date on all the latest technology, and he shares his knowledge with you if need be. Ed is courteous, respectful and will get the job done, satisfying both the tenants as well as the property owner. I am amazed at how quickly he responds, which is rare in this business! We all know that communication is key! Ed really chose the perfect name for his company, Hawk Management.....he really does watch your business like a hawk. If you are looking for a property manager, please do yourself a favor and call Ed. You will be extremely satisfied, your search will be over, leaving you to enjoy life once again! I am!May 17, 2018Verified
Admittedly, I was a little nervous about hiring a PM from a website--but I lucked out big time when I was referred to Ed. Ed is very personable and likable guy and put me completely at ease Ed is very knowledgeable about property management in addition to being very efficient about making things happen in a timely manner. So far, I have been very impressed with his level of responsiveness as I have some tenant issues that needed to be addressed quickly and he was on it almost immediately. He told me what he was going to do and then followed through 100%. My only regret is that I didn't call him sooner--it would have saved me some major headaches. I really look forward to a long relationship with Hawk Management.Apr 22, 2015Verified
Ed, of Hawk Management does a great job of providing a personalized, flexible, property management service. My wife and I contacted a few companies prior to selecting Hawk Management and have not regretted it since. Hawk Management manages multiple properties for us and we don't hesitate to recommend Ed and their services.Mar 9, 2015

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?You know exactly what you are paying for up-front. We have no hidden fees. You get the benefit of all the services without the hefty price tag. Our basic fees are: 1) Leasing: one month’s rent, or 50% of one month’s rent if you sign up for our management services as well. 2) Management: 7% of total gross receipts. If the unit is vacant, you pay nothing. There are a few other fees that apply in certain instances, but those are rare, and they are listed on our website.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We first speak with the customer over the phone to answer any questions and to see if we would be a good fit for each other. If we are, we normally email the paperwork to the client so that they have a chance to read it carefully. Then we meet with the customer at their property to evaluate it so that we can price it correctly and make recommendations on how to make it more marketable. We then sign the contract and gather all other necessary documents. From that point forward we take care of everything.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a B.A. in Political Science from the University of California, Irvine. I have an MBA with an emphasis on Finance from Loyola Marymount University. I have a Real Estate Broker's license: 01924661. I have over 15 years of experience in the field of property management.
