I’m Melissa Prandi, the president and CEO of PRANDI Property Management. We’re located in Marin County, which is just north of San Francisco, over the Golden Gate Bridge.

 

Marin County Property Management Roots

I was born and raised in Marin County, and I’ve lived here my entire life. I got started in property management over 35 years ago, which is hard to believe. I began as a receptionist, and started learning about property management, and then became a property manager for five years.
I went out on maternity leave on a Wednesday, did a little grocery shopping on Thursday, and on Friday, went into labor at 10 minutes before 8:00 in the morning while crossing the Golden Gate Bridge. It wasn’t easy. I got to the hospital at 8:00, had my son at 10 minutes to 9:00 that morning, and went home the same day.
On Monday morning, the phone rang and it was the owners of the company I had been working for. They told me they were going to sell the company, and I could either buy it or be out of a job. I thought about it for a nanosecond, and bought the company. I put a playpen in my office, and found myself with two babies: a brand new property management company and a brand new infant.

 

Growing PRANDI Property Management

Fast forward to now, and we have grown the company quite a bit. We’re a family-owned business that’s community focused. We enjoy giving back. All of our staff are involved in giving back to the community. I especially love rotary clubs and being active.

We pair quality tenants with quality homes. We’re a little different in that we exclusively handle single family residential homes. We manage anything you can live in, but we focus on the residential, and we work only in Marin County. We don’t buy and sell real estate; concentrating 100 percent on property management and leasing homes.

 

Lease-Only Services for Property Owners

Our services are comprehensive, and we know that the most important thing we can do is find a really good tenant for your property. If you don’t need full service management, we offer a service called Lease-Only.

We come in and visit your property and talk about the value of your rental home. Then, we let you know what your competition is in the market. We recommend a price and some changes that might put your property in the perfect, rentable condition. That’s our Lease-Only start. Then, we market the home. My son Matt is a professional photographer, so we get the best photos to market your property.

 

Placing the Best Tenants

Finding the best tenant we can for your investment is what we do.

We will take care of all the legal paperwork, which is more complex than it was when I started in this industry. We qualify the tenant, we do the background and screening, review it with you, and agree that we have the best tenant for your property. Then, we do all the lease documents and the addenda. We get the property ready for move-in and provide a full move-in condition report. This shows what your property looked like when the tenants moved in. We expect them to return your property in the same condition that they received it, minus the general wear and tear.

 

We would love to work with you. Property management is our only business, so we’re focused and concentrated on what’s best for you. Please contact us at PRANDI Property Management, and we’ll talk about how to best rent your investment property.
