Urban Coast Properties

About Us

We are San Diego Natives

Our Story.

As San Diego natives, we have seen the evolution of the local economy and have been excited by its vibrant culture, innovative business, and unique people. We invest in and manage apartment and commercial buildings throughout the county. We are experts in identifying opportunity, leaders in adopting innovative solutions, and uniquely qualified to sustain growth for owners without compromising quality for tenants.

Style + Substance

Unseen Potential.

Considering managers for our own buildings years ago, we were unsatisfied with the limited options and antiquated practices we found in the Apartment Management Market. We made the decision to manage our own properties because we did not trust anyone else with our valuable assets. After years of success with our own buildings, we began offering our unique, tech driven approach to clients… and so began Urban Coast Properties. We are a young, motivated company who has built its foundation on transparency, innovation, tenant care, and proactive maintenance. 

We pride ourselves in approaching everything we do with integrity, transparency, and innovation. We treat every building as if it were our own and every tenant as if they were our only customer. 

By respecting every applicant and tenant, we establish an environment which demands clear communication and mutual understanding. We fill our clients’ buildings with the best tenants in San Diego because we provide our renters modern solutions with old-fashioned authenticity.
