A Decade of Growth and a Track Record of Success
We'll help you start your own successful property management franchise
Dissatisfied with the quality of property managers she had encountered, Manzar Azari started her business, The Azari Group, from the living room of her condo. Over the next decade, the business has grown and developed, earning numerous awards and accolades over the years.
From the award for Top 100 Women Owned Businesses in California, to Top 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies in the Bay Area, we prove that we're not just another name in property management in San Francisco - we're the name.
As a property owner, they have done a wonderful job in managing my property. They found me a tenant in less than a month. Manzar is always super responsive to my emails, even at 12am!
Steven H, Property Owner
As a landlord who lives overseas for much of the year, it is pretty helpful to have a property manager I can trust. Manzar & the APM team communicate well and keep me informed of all property issues.
