About Us

Managing Commercial Properties Since 1988

Spectrum Property Management is the largest privately owned third party commercial property management firm in San Diego. Providing a full range of professional commercial management services to private equity owners and associations throughout Southern California.

Spectrum Property Management was established in San Diego in 1988, since then we have added immense value to an expansive portfolio of properties. As a company, we are exceptionally proud to consistently rank in the top four management companies in the San Diego Business Journal’s “Book of Lists” and have been recognized on the “Top Influential’s” list published by the San Diego Daily Transcript.

The company is led by Leslie Borges who has a hands-on proactive management style, coupled with the companies dynamic team approach lends to delivering reliable and proven results. Overall, our experience, intuition, and creativity to formulate effective and efficient solutions is what sets Spectrum Property Management apart from its competitors. Together we consistently meet or exceed client goals and maintain a strong rapport with industry vendors, brokers, and associates. At Spectrum, there is never a conflict of interest or reduction of resources as we are fully invested in our clients’ properties and not our own.

A key element of our reporting is its simplicity and usability, providing the necessary information for our clients to review the property’s performance and make well-informed decisions.

In addition to the standard monthly financial statements, owners receive a detailed Operating Analysis, Budget Comparison and Income Variance reports that outline the property’s performance on a monthly basis.

Our accounting team is in-house accounting creating a more efficient and effective team where the property managers and accountants have the ability to collaborate in person on a daily basis streamlining the accounting process.

Both our property management and accounting teams are well versed in the property particulars and are available to review with our clients at any time.

Read some of our client’s testimonials to our innovative success

“Bottom line is we highly recommend Spectrum to anyone in the San Diego County market. We feel they are the best of the best, and are a company that provides the kind of service that any landlord would want and be proud to have them representing you… I would say if you are seeking someone to manage your property you won’t be sorry if you selected Spectrum.”

Mixed-Use, Property Owner

“We have found Spectrum to be very responsive to the association’s Board and Members with a professional, service minded approach. Because Spectrum is a local San Diego company, their team of managers and property accountants are in the same office. If there is ever an issue with a member or vendor, they can respond quickly and expedite the resolution. Their team provides great communication and problem solving.”

Commercial Association, Board Member

“Through a recommendation, we met the team from Spectrum Property Management. While they are one of the largest locally owned management companies in San Diego, their management and accounting professionals are very hands-on and responsive. We were very pleased with their presentation and hired Spectrum to manage our Association.”
