Risk Management

Many San Jose property management companies are content to collect the rent, schedule maintenance, and place tenants. At Zell Associates, we take property management a few steps further. Our goal is to help you maximize the return on your investment by protecting you and your property from risk and liability. We keep vacancies low and rental income high. We work with professional vendors and contractors to complete work quickly and expertly. We document important issues with videos and photos, and we're able to resolve conflicts quickly and solve problems creatively.

Inspections + Communication

Whether you prefer to communicate in-person, on the phone, or through online messaging, we are here to answer questions and provide information. We conduct inspections annually and sometimes more frequently when necessary. These visits allow us to make sure there aren't any deferred maintenance items that need attention, and we can confirm that your tenants are following the terms of the lease. We'll share our recommendations on improvements and renewals, and work with you to ensure our management services are exceeding your expectations.

  • For apartments from 4 units to 250 units, we can hire and supervise on-site staff. We'll help with turnovers, vacancies, and repairs. We can even manage capital improvements and put together a preventative maintenance schedule.
  • For single family homes, we'll keep good tenants in place and protect your asset.
  • For investment portfolios, we'll help with acquisitions, sales, 1031 exchanges, and growth.
