Property Management

Hudson McDonald Properties, Inc. provides property and asset management services for Berkeley property owners that seek to maximize their income while ensuring that their properties are well-maintained and positioned for long-term, consistent growth. We work best with owners that believe in providing a high-quality living environment for their residents. Accordingly, we focus on excellent tenant relationships, preventative maintenance, and appropriate capital improvements to ensure a well-run property.

Hudson McDonald takes great pride in property management and we treat each property as if it were our own.

Hudson McDonald is a full-service property management firm and our goal is to partner with our clients to provide worry-free ownership. We handle all aspects of property management including marketing and leasing, rent collections, vendor management and payment, and long-term strategic planning. We provide detailed reporting, meet with owners as requested, and take our responsibility as stewards of your property very seriously.

Hudson McDonald is locally owned and operated and we focus exclusively on the Berkeley market. We understand the needs of both students and traditional residents and are experts at identifying qualified, responsible tenants. We understand the need for proactive management in buildings that include student tenants to ensure a pleasant and respectful living environment for all.

As a Berkeley based firm, we are fully aware of Berkeley’s unique and complex rent control rules and all local, state and federal laws affecting property owners. We process all paperwork and ensure the payment of all fees to keep properties properly registered and compliant. Given the potential long-term tenancies fostered by rent control, we work diligently to identify the best-qualified tenants to ensure long-term financial growth. We are fully compliant with fair housing and equal opportunity laws.

Specific Services

Hudson McDonald has managed our housing for us for the last three years. The complicated process to move from our management to Hudson McDonald’s management went smoothly. They are responsive to our residents and work well with our staff. As Director of Facilities, I appreciate Aurelia’s flexibility and willingness to work with us. We have benefitted from their services.

We were tenants at the Delaware for four years and liked it so much we would have stayed forever, but then we were given the opportunity to become resident managers at the New Californian and made the move. We are enjoying working now as resident managers with Hudson McDonald.  Being a part of their team has been the best experience for us. We couldn’t be happier!
