More than 30 years ago Richard Hoegler saw a gap in Southern California’s property management industry. Real estate owners and investors needed more from their management firms: they needed a partner and advisor, not just a paper pusher. Drawing upon his deep experience forged over a career that started when he was just 18 years old, Richard founded Pan American Properties.
As the company grew and evolved, it stayed grounded in Richard’s commitment to service. His clients responded to his no-nonsense style, flexibility, and willingness to get his hands dirty when the client needed it. Rich imparted that style to his son, Rick, who took over from his father in 2016.
Under Rick’s leadership, Pan American is focused on staying true to its bedrock values while embracing innovation. Rick believes that the best service comes from a personal commitment to client relationships, mixed with a healthy dose of the latest technological tools and financial strategies.
Today’s Pan American specializes in investment in and management of multifamily residential, commercial, and mixed-use properties. With 150 employees made up of corporate staff, resident-managers, and maintenance technicians, we’re now a mid-size, comprehensive firm.
We like to say that our size is just right: intimate enough to know every client personally, but still fully equipped to offer the comprehensive suite of solutions they need. Our capabilities go beyond managing properties to include accounting, maintenance, and investment services.
