How do I find a good property manager in San Francisco?

Thumbtack Editors

You’ll find a reputable property manager in San Francisco by first researching pros and companies online. For example, you can quickly compare property managers’ reviews, ratings and Top Pro statuses online. And if you request free cost estimates from several managers, you can also compare their property management fees — just make sure you request a full breakdown of all their fees.

Visit the California Department of Real Estate to find out if the property managers you’re considering have the appropriate licenses. You can also ask pros if they have a license and any certifications, such as a property management certification from the California Association of Realtors.

When you’re done with your research, hire a San Francisco property manager who has fair pricing, the right credentials, a good reputation and enough experience.
