Property Management Benefits

What We Do As Your Carlsbad Property Manager

Our property management services include:


When you work with Graf Property Management, you will never have to deal with a frustrating vacant property again. Our strategic marketing techniques are sure to attract a wide pool of prospective tenants, giving us many applicants to choose from. We will even set up agent accompanied property showings to interested tenants. Before you know it, your property will be occupied by a qualified and responsible tenant, so you’ll never lose money from a vacancy.

Tenant Screening

Our team takes the tenant screening process extremely seriously, as any property management company should! When we screen a new applicant, we cover all of our bases. We run a credit check, verify their employment, run a background check, and contact their previous landlords to see what they are like as tenants. After our process is completed, you’re sure to have a qualified tenant living in your rental home who always abides by the terms of the lease and treats your property like it is their own.

Rent Collection

Are you tired of chasing after your rent payments? We understand! Collecting rent in a timely manner each month is an important aspect of maximizing your income. That’s why our team makes sure that you get your money on time, in full, every month. We offer tenants an online portal which allows them to pay their rent quickly and conveniently. We then deposit the funds directly into your bank account.


Taking care of your rental property takes a lot of time, energy, and hard work. That’s why we are here! Our team’s top priority is making sure that your property remains in the best condition possible. To achieve this, we provide detailed inspections of the property on a regular basis. In fact, we conduct quarterly exterior inspections, complete with photos. Additionally, our team conducts detailed move in and move out inspections.

Financial Reporting

Gone are the days of spending hours on paperwork! Our team can handle your finances for you. From taking care of your HOA / mortgage payments for you to providing a 24/7 web interface for you to access all of your important information at any time, we’ve got you covered.

Eviction Protection

With our thorough tenant screening process, it is rare that our team ever has to deal with an eviction. However, sometimes it is necessary. If this situation should arise, we will take care of it professionally, making sure to follow the legal process meticulously.

What Do Our Client Say About Us?


For the past 10 years, I have had the pleasure of Graf Property Management taking care of my townhouse in Vista, CA. The professional staff, led by Robin Etheridge, goes above and beyond to meet their client’s needs for the properties that they manage.

As a client I have had no problems with communication regarding the tenant, repairs on the property, or deposits of rent moneys to my account. Why, you ask, is this so important? I am an out-of-town landlord and completely dependent on Robin and her staff to manage all the details of my investment. I receive monthly statements detailing all expenses and income. Twice a year visual inspections are done and photographs are sent for me to review and evaluate the conditions of the townhouse’s interior. Should there be a need for any service or repairs, I know I can rely on Graf Property Management to provide licensed skilled tradesmen to complete the job.

Recently, Robin handled the sale of the above property, ironing out all the details and dealing with conflicts and problems that can become road blocks to a successful sale for her client.

It is without reservation that I would recommend Graf Property Management’s professional services to any prospective client looking to have all the headaches of tenant management resolved.

Graf Property Management (GPM) is the best property management company I have had the pleasure of doing business with. I am a landlord and have used other local property management companies in the past and have had nothing but bad experiences. The owner, Robin Etheridge, went above and beyond what I had expected of a property management company and both my tenants and I have had a great experience. Below is just a few notes on my positive experience with GPM:

Communication: Communication with GPM is great. They almost always answer the phone or get back to you immediately whenever you call. They also keep you aware of anything going on with your property.

Services: Whenever we need work done on our property GPM has always came through with a quality, licensed provider. We have had everything from flooring, plumbing, to drywall done through their contractors. Also, their services always have a competitive price.

Tenants: Robin found us great tenants who are responsible and always pay rent on time. We have had experiences with other property managers who put anyone they can in the property as soon as possible just so they can collect their fee. GPM thoroughly screens all applicants and picks the best tenants. Additionally, the tenants have had a great experience dealing with GPM.

Rent: Robin conducted a market analysis prior to listing our property for rent and we were able to rent our property out for much higher than we anticipated.

Overall we have had the best experience using GPM and will continue to go use them for our property in the future.

When my husband and I decided to take a traveling job, we were reluctant to leave our beautiful home unattended. We worried about how we could possibly find a good reliable tenant and oversee the management of our valuable property while we were gone. All our concerns and worries were immediately resolved when we first met and began working with Robin Etheridge. She is the amazing owner operator of Graf Property Management. She connected us with a gardener, cleaning service, window washer, tile flooring restoration specialist and a painter. Everyone she recommended was professional, reasonably priced, and provided excellent service.
I cannot say enough about Robin’s professionalism, attention to detail, promptness, reliability, and her on the ball attitude. She had our house in pristine ready to rent condition within 3 days after we vacated our home. Then, unbelievably, she found the perfect tenant 2 days later. This Company has made it possible for my husband and I to take an extended traveling vacation. We are having the time of our lives and have zero worries about the beautiful home we left behind.

This is a 5-star company. I have no hesitation in recommending this highly professional and efficient North San Diego County property management company. I guarantee you will be completely satisfied with the excellent service this company provides.
