We Are Different

You'll come to appreciate that we aren't your average real estate management business. Our property owners and tenants do business with us because we're different.

Our Mission
We enrich lives by providing tenants with housing they love and owners with a profitable, low stress real estate experience.

"I would recommend you in a heartbeat - you and your staff have been exceptional to work with"
- Kim, Chico Property Owner (Read More)

What makes us different? Our Beliefs and Our Methods make us different. Here's how:

Our Name
What does IPM stand for? Technically, Interchange Property Management (BRE LIC #01859198). But we have created our own defintion:
In Posse Meliora which means in latin, the potential for better things. We feel strongly that there is always room for improvement.

Our Beliefs
  • Abundance - There is plenty, share it and be generous
  • Grace - People deserve what they don't deserve
  • Loyalty - Relationships first, everything else second.
  • Collaboration - We can do more together. There are no competitors.
Our Methods
  • People First - We put people first. We know by automating and reducing our mundane and repetitive tasks we'll have more time for our relationships with our owners and tenants.
  • Strict Scheduling - We time all our properties to have the same cycle (vacancy, and leasing). This means our owners, tenants and staff all know when and what to expect. It also helps us plan ahead well in advance.
  • Take Ownership - We won't manage a property we wouldn't own. This means we focus on properties that we can take pride in and work with owners that feel the same.
  • Relevancy - Our tenants and owners tend to be progressive and smart. So we stay ahead of the curve. Today this means text messages, EFT payments and online lease signing. We aim to be proactive in our technology and to meet our tenants and owners ahead of the trend, not behind it.

What Our Owners Have to Say...
"We are very happy with our current situation. We have had numerous conversations that this time around (renting) it is so much easier! We feel that our property is now an asset as rental property and not a burden. Thank you IPM!"
- Nancy, Chico Property Owner (Read More)

What Our Tenants Have to Say...
" Thank you IPM!! You have made my dream come true. Thank you so much for being a part of it - Thank you for being such a great team to work with."
- Eve, Chico Tenant (Read More)
