Lucas Real Estate offers expert Leasing and Property Management services for select properties in Newport Beach, Newport Coast and Costa Mesa.
We are unique in our property management business. Devin Lucas is a Real Estate Attorney, Real Estate Broker and REALTOR®; Courtney Lucas is a REALTOR® and CPA.
There are two phases to rental income – leasing (i.e. getting the right tenant), then management (i.e. keeping the right tenant and avoiding costly mistakes). We can help you with both, or just one.
our leasing includes high-end marketing such as professional photos, printed materials, websites, layouts, virtual tours, video tours and walk-throughs showcasing properties in nearly the same fashion and effort as our ‘for sale’ efforts. By way of example, check out 515Redlands.com, 1924Church.com, 41PacificMist.com and 28Marisol.com and videos such as these for our “for lease” properties:
Our professional management, legal and accounting backgrounds, are especially useful in California landlord-tenant work.
Landlords routinely encounter tenants becoming overly “difficult” and failure to perform repairs is a common catalyst to withholding rent and resulting lawsuits. Conversely, a landlord’s failure (or even delay) to address habitability problems can get a landlord in serious trouble. Using outdated forms often results in non-compliance with updated laws. Non-payment of rent or other serious breaches may mandate formal notices, which must be properly drafted and served in accordance with strict requirements. Sometimes an eviction is required if the rent or other breach cannot be resolved. California landlords can never resort to “self-help” of any kind – no changing the locks, no turning off the power, etc. Landlords should know their rights and responsibilities and appropriate legal counsel is wise.
We use local and reliable contractors to ensure things are done correctly to protect your rental investment. We promptly address any tenant concerns, including 24-hour call service. Detailed records and accounting are provided monthly. We are well equipped and knowledgable a to manage your rental property.
We can assist with every aspect of your investment with endless possibilities to shift your work, free your schedule and maximize your investment.
