What We Do As Your Cotati Property Manager

On a very basic level, every real estate investment owner, whether holding a small portfolio or large, novice or expert, has a definite objective. All landlords want to both generate cash flow and minimize liabilities. While those goals are being addressed on a daily basis you also hope and expect that the property itself will increase in value. Below please find a summary of our services.

Property Management

Our property management program is organized and standardized, so that we can provide consistently high service to all of our clients. However, within that structure, we customize the details to suit your specific needs. Our services traditionally include collection of the monthly rent is delinquent, as well as written and verbal communication with tenants. We also provide supervision and delegation of essential repairs, refurbishment of vacant properties in preparation for re-rental, budget planning, and scheduling for recurring maintenance and property improvements, periodic reviews of the property to ascertain condition, and financial services. Financial services can be as uncomplicated or as extensive as you see fit: we can disburse the mortgage payments, property taxes, insurance premiums, homeowners' association dues, make direct payments into your chosen bank account, or pay any other obligations associated with the needs of the property. No matter how complex your financial strategy, or how detailed our services, we can provide a management program designed to provide you with value, security and confidence.

We know that when you call us with the news that you have found good candidates to choose from, the hard part is over.

Cotati Area Information

Cotati Property Managers

Cotati's hexagonal plaza and street grid plan was designed during the 1890s by Newton Smyth as an alternative to the traditional grid. Dr. Thomas Page's barn once stood where the plaza is today, and each of the streets surrounding the plaza is named after one of his sons. In 1892, the Page family created the Cotati Land Company to subdivide their ranch into parcels of five to twenty acres (two to eight hectares). By 1901, good land was selling for $30 to $60 per acre. Page family ownership ended in 1944.

The Cotati area was shaken up by the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. After the quake, Drury Butler reported that "the chimneys were as a rule thrown down".

The Northwestern Pacific Railroad built the Cotati Depot in 1907. It was located near the East Cotati Avenue crossing, almost 1 mi east of the plaza. The planned Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit station will be in this area.

Prior to 1915, the major north-south roads (Petaluma Hill Road and Stony Point Road) bypassed Cotati. In that year, the state routed the Redwood Highway (part of U.S. Route 101) onto the mostly-unpaved Cotati Boulevard. U.S. 101 passed through the downtown plaza until 1955, when the highway was re-routed further west. U.S. 101 still bisects Cotati, and the former route is called Old Redwood Highway.

In February 1921, the old schoolhouse at 201 West Sierra burned down. A new school built on the same site opened in 1922. This building has served as City Hall since 1971. The rear of this building housed the Cotati Police Department until September 3, 2003 when the department moved into a new building next door.

The Cotati Speedway, a wooden oval track for automobile racing, was built near the depot around 1921. It was about 1.25 mi in circumference. World records were set there, but it failed in its first season and was torn down in 1922.
