Westward Management provides property owners and condominium associations with full-service, proactive property management. As property owners ourselves, we understand your property is much more than an investment - an understanding based on 25+ years of experience in buying, selling, leasing and managing residential and commercial properties throughout California, Colorado, Illinois and Michigan.
We differentiate ourselves by bringing a business mentality to property management. We're not a "mom & pop." We embrace technology, process and efficiency. This efficiency helps us keep management fees low while ensuring top-notch service. From accounting and general book keeping services to special project and financial management, we're sure you'll notice this isn't your typical "old-fashioned" property management company.
