About Us


DKD Property Management Company has provided comprehensive management of multifamily apartment communities in California throughout the Bay Area and Central Valley since 1972. Many of our clients are private investors, financial institutions and syndicators. Our experience and proficiency in the successful management of market-rate and affordable housing properties enables us to serve our clients with excellence. The core values and standards of DKD demand our dedication and integrity. As a team, we are committed to developing and maintaining a long term relationship with our clients and increasing the asset value of their real estate investment.  It is our goal to provide quality personal service to each of our clients.

We pride ourselves in staying abreast of the rental market, government regulations and laws specific to the industry, regions, cities and neighborhoods in which our apartment communities are located. DKD’s Regional Property Managers are based in our San Jose Corporate Office or one of our Branch Offices in Fairfield or Fresno. This enables us to train and develop our on-site teams to meet our high standards and to remain accessible to oversee on-site management operations.

DKD’s On-Site Division consists of our front-line teams, including Property Managers, Maintenance Technicians, Leasing Consultants and Occupancy Specialists. The corporate property management team has well over 150 years of combined experience in the management of multifamily apartment communities. We pride ourselves on the longevity of our staff, their knowledge and expertise which support our core value of delivering Exceptional Leadership and Exceptional Service.
