Performance Built. Results Driven. 

Luxury Property Management Serving Distinct Homes in Marin County, Petaluma & San Francisco

Performance Built Property Management

We deliver performance built property management for the results-driven investor by renting properties faster, and for more money. Since opening in 2010 we’ve helped protect over $1billion in local residential properties with a less than 1% eviction rate.  We’re excited to help our clients create a new mindset where professional property management is a smart necessity in rent-controlled California.  We will know our mission is successful when the only word associated with “property management” in our clients minds is “freedom”.

Local Property Management

Our goal is to provide outstanding investment property management from SF and Marin County to Petaluma, specifically for premium properties in the Marina, Cow Hollow and Pacific Heights, as well as distinct homes in and around North Bay communities such as Mill Valley, Sausalito, Tiburon, Belvedere, Corte Madera, Larkspur, Greenbrae, San Anselmo, Ross and Kentfield, while our northern agents handle San Rafael, Novato and Petaluma communities.  We work with results-oriented property owners like you to execute investment strategies with your bottom-line and personal goals in mind.

Strategic Leasing for Your Property

Did you know we rent properties faster and for more money than the average MLS agent*?

Effective leasing starts with great marketing, and our strategic advertising plans target high quality and executive tenants looking for a comfortable, attractive, well-maintained home in our service areas. As we gather interested prospects, we manage the communication process and we show your home to the pre-qualified prospects. When a potential resident is interested in leasing the home, we begin a thorough and well-documented screening process – likely the strictest in town.

Our professional leasing services are included in our full service management plans. But, for clients who simply need professional assistance in filling vacancies, the proactive rental department at Foundation Homes offers a “Lease Only” solution for our DIY management clients who wish to self-manage their investment. Under this program, local property owners gain the full benefit of our leasing team, while the day-to-day management remains with the landlord.

Performance Built Property Management

When it comes to managing your distinct property, we have a results-driven philosophy.

Our job is to manage the risk and lower the liability for our clients. The rents we bring in for our clients are high, and our eviction rates are low. This is due to our performance built and results-driven strategies.  We set specific, measurable targets and match resources, tools, and action plans to accomplishing results for our clients, while delivering a stellar client experience.   We minimize vacancies through our network of relocation agents, executive industry contacts, and comprehensive online marketing with a global reach. Since we’re also real estate agents, we hold open houses, advertise in the local MLS, and reach hundreds of local REALTORS. We also deliver strict tenant screening, leases and policies that aim to protect our clients throughout the term of the tenancy.


We commit that through our results-driven management services we will work hard to make owning your rental property easier and more profitable.

Take a look at our most recent year-end results:

  • Average rented home price was 2% above MLS average* 
  • Average time on market was 16% faster than MLS average* 
  • Over $238 million in homes served last year
  • Over $ 1 billion in homes served since opening in 2010
  • Eviction Rate under 1%

It’s called Manage Magic, and it’s for self-managing landlords like you.

From fixing the heat in the middle of the winter to cleaning up a midnight flood in the basement, with Manage Magic’s “Professional Protection Package”, you now have an a la carte management SOLUTION for the emergency help you need as a landlord.

Complimentary Consultation

We get it! Leasing and managing a property in a rent-controlled state is a lot of liability and a lot of work. Beyond that it starts to impact where you are spending your time, and ultimately your quality of life. We can remove the headache and give you back your time to focus on your area of genius; the best way to do that is to start with a free consultation to see what your home is worth in today’s market. 

We can help determine what changes (if any) are needed to get your home rent ready, as well as the right rental value that’s designed to earn you as much as possible on your investment while attracting the best possible new residents to love your property.

What Our Clients Say

As an International Property Management trainer, conference speaker and consultant, I've trained and worked alongside the very best property management companies globally. Therefore it's easy to spot a top performance business. In the USA, it's hard to find a company as good as Foundation Homes, led by Christopher and Darcy. If you need total peace of mind with your property management, I believe Foundation Homes is easily within the top 1% in the country for performance, service and the ability to take care of and manage your investment. Without doubt, your best choice.
