FREE Professional Photography

Once you sign up for full-service management, we will provide professional photography to showcase your property. Professional-grade pictures attract renters faster.

Online Guest Cards – With our easy to use online guest cards, prospects can request a showing and request more information at the touch of a button, 24hrs a day, 7 days a week. Once a guest card is received, the prospect will receive a prompt response from one of our team members.

Signage – McKee Properties has gained the reputation as an industry leader in the San Diego rental market. With over 40 years in the industry, our signature red, green and blue FOR RENT signs have become a familiar sight around San Diego County.


Same day private showings – Many property management companies only show your property one day a week and hold open houses as opposed to private showings. Industry research has proven private showings to be much more effective, as prospects don’t feel rushed and can ask questions one-on-one with the leasing agent. Same day showings also accommodate unique schedules – we are not a one-size fits all company. We work around people’s schedules.

Online Rental Applications with pay by credit card option – Tenants can apply on-the-spot during their showing using their personal smartphone or tablet. This results in a much higher closing ratio for resident conversion. Gone are the days of paper applications and personal checks to process screening reports.

Resident Screening

Properly screening prospective residents is one of the most important aspects of a successful property management plan. Accurately qualifying your resident will result in better resident selection and a higher probability of on-time rent payments. Your prospective resident will be thoroughly screened using our proprietary “Triple Check” underwriting system, which includes the following credential verifications:

  • Credit Check
  • Eviction Database Search
  • Criminal Background Check
  • Employment / Income Verification

Accounting Services

Our top notch accounting systems are designed to make your life easier. Our scale enables us to have the accounting staff necessary to make sure your property is operating efficiently. There is much more involved than simply cashing your residents rent check every month. We take it a step further and offer the following services, all included in your monthly management fee:

Electronic Banking – on time income distributions ACH or wire transferred directly to your bank account of choice.

Electronic reporting – with our easy to use online owner’s portal, you can access your owner account 24/7 with up-to-date information about your property. Want to see if your resident has paid rent? Forgot how much that window repair cost? Log on and get up-to-date information about all your income and expenses.

Bill Pay – our goal is to make your life easier! We have the ability to pay all of your bills through our bill pay system, assuming there is positive cash flow on a recurring monthly basis. Common recurring bills we pay for many of our clients include gardener, utility accounts, HOA dues, pool service, mortgage payments, insurance, and annual property taxes.

Customized Reports – we can generate a variety of reports based upon your needs, ranging from monthly income and expense reports, 12 month report formatting, cash and disbursements journals, rent rolls and much more.

Year-End Tax Prep – at the end of the year, don’t worry about scrambling to find invoices and receipts. Our accounting department will handle every detail for you and provide you with a year-end tax statement showing all of your income and expenses in one report, including a Form 1099 to accompany your tax filing. All you need to do is hand these two items to your tax preparer!


Competitive Rates – Our hourly rates are competitive, and we stand behind our work.

Faster turn-times – We have full control over your required maintenance and it’s in our best interest to get the job done faster! Faster maintenance = faster lease-up, which results in more income for you.

Preventive Maintenance – we place a great deal of importance on preventive maintenance. Each time our property is inspected, your manager will document your property’s condition. From that inspection, our maintenance division will make recommendations of needed repairs or improvements

Risk Management

Risk management is one of the most critical aspects of a successful property management plan, but one that is often overlooked by landlords. We take important steps to mitigate risk and protect you from liability.

Annual Health & Safety Audit – We strive to provide safe and comfortable environments for our residents. In order to ensure that our residents premises are safe, we conduct an annual health and safety audit, including a questionnaire that each resident is required to complete to confirm that minimum health and safety standards are being met, and further to provide us with written documentation of any property discrepancies. Residents are required to contact their local utility company to schedule free courtesy inspections of their gas appliances, including heating systems and water heaters. This annual audit helps protect our residents and also helps to shield our clients from some of the liabilities associated with the rental property ownership.

Lease Renewal Inspections – In addition to inspecting your property each time a resident moves out, we will also perform a comprehensive interior inspection as a condition of renewing your resident’s lease for subsequent terms. Our pro-active lease renewal procedures are instrumental in ensuring that your property is being properly cared for by your resident, and that any deferred maintenance issues are properly addressed.

Legal Representation – Our firm has one of the state’s leading landlord advocate attorney’s on retainer to keep us up to date on the rapidly changing landscape of landlord-tenant law.

Collections – We partner with one of the nation’s largest collections agencies to ensure that in the rare event that a resident leaves with a delinquent balance, it is aggressively pursued.

Resident Relations

We value our residents. In the property management business, there is nothing more important than having happy residents. By ensuring that your residents are happy in their rented premises, you will have lower turnover which saves you significant money in the long-run. Here are a few of the things we do to ensure the highest level of resident satisfaction:

Resident Surveys – we periodically survey our residents to ensure that they are enjoying their new home. Following completion of service orders, we again follow-up to make sure the work was completed satisfactorily, and that our maintenance techs were punctual, efficient and friendly.

Rental Payment Options – paying rent has never been easier! We offer state of the art technology to make paying rent an easy process for your resident. By a touch of a button, residents can make online rent payments and/or schedule recurring ACH payments from a bank account of choice, resulting in higher rates of on-time rent payments.

Online Maintenance Requests – residents can submit a non-emergency maintenance request online, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Resident Communications – we have designated staff members who are here to assist residents with any issues or questions that arise during their tenancy. We are often told that our staff is very accessible. When our owners or residents call, we are there for them.

HOA Rules and Regulation Enforcement – All residents who rent a property with a homeowner’s association will be provided with a copy of the association rules and regulations during the lease signing. We ensure that your resident is complying with HOA rules and regulations, and act as the liaison between the HOA and the resident should an issue arise.
