the story of mission property management

Founded in 1984, Mission Property Management is a company that has managed properties in the East Bay for more than four decades. In 2008, however, a spry and successful Bay Area realtor named Carl Fox decided to branch out and expand his real estate services. Carl purchased Mission Property Management in 2008 and has grown the company to be one of the most successful East Bay property management companies around, all while maintaining a high level of real estate sales. In a span of 15 years, Carl has more than doubled the business and increased the staff from three employees to a team of seven helpful people. Mission Property Management collects over $10 million in rent each year and manages a diverse portfolio of hundreds of rental properties with an estimated value of over $400 million.
