Protecting Your Investment and Maximizing the Return on Your Real Estate Investment

When we say we deliver full-service property management in Hawthorne, we mean we handle everything. You can count on us for the leasing and management of your home, as well as the maintenance and accounting. We don’t leave anything to chance or to you.

Our full-service property management plan includes rent collection and lease enforcement and tenant relationships. It includes asset protection and inspections, routine maintenance, and emergency responses. We’re here to handle lease renewals and disputes, notices, and accounting. 

Preventative maintenance is a big part of how we keep repairs under budget and simple to address. Tenants can always reach your dedicated property management during regular business hours. After hours, we have a 24-hour phone line and responders who manage everything that’s needed. 

In our experience, some of the maintenance calls can be handled easily over the phone. We won’t send out a vendor unless it’s necessary. Everyone we work with is licensed and insured.   

At HCM Property Management, we put you first.

Direct-Deposit Rental Payments and Transparent Real Estate Investment Accounting

Rent on your Hawthorne investment property is paid promptly every month. We don’t think you should have to wait for a check; we make secure and convenient electronic deposits right into your bank account. 

Our tenants are great about paying on time, so we typically process all rental payments on the sixth of each month. We’ll immediately make the deposit to your account, and you’ll also receive an itemized statement that’s easy to read and clear about all income and expenses associated with your property. You can access these reports any time online through your owner’s portal on our website.

One of the things that many of our owners appreciate is our ability to pay your bills! With our Gold and Platinum property management plans, we’ll coordinate payment of any property-related bills, including mortgages, association dues, landscapers, and other vendors.

We’re here to make your life a little bit easier.

I recently inherited 2 rental properties and didn't have the time or desire to be a landlord, so I reached out to HCM Property Management and spoke to Lenny who explained the process and my options for property management. I've been very pleased with the whole team and their quick response to any questions or issues that occur whenever you have a rental property.

My husband and I were looking for a rental but haven’t had too much time to do my own research. Made a call to HCM Property management and had a pleasure to speak with Maria she was a delight to speak with. She took time to look into homes they had available,answered questions that I had and directed me in the right direction. If the rest of the staff of HCM is as sweet, attentive and professional as Maria I can definitely see ourself working with HCM.
