Key Realty Center

Property Management Solutions in Sacramento

Our Sacramento Property Management Services are Personal and Professional

The property managers at Key Realty Center have walked in the shoes of both owners and tenants. Like you, we’ve worried about rising repair costs and chased down late rent. Like your tenants, we’ve been frustrated by a lack of responsiveness and communication. We bring a personal and a professional experience to the management of your Sacramento rental properties.

We’re more than professional property managers. We’re also humans working hard to keep up with everything that’s changing around us. We’re here to talk about why you’re investing and where you’re going. We want to know what you love about your rental property and what gives you a headache. Together, we can have a better rental experience.

Sacramento Property Management Resources You Can Trust

Every property is unique and so is every investor. Our team has spent a lot of time establishing and perfecting property management and leasing systems that work. But there’s always room for personalization and customization. Owners trust us to deliver the services that fit their needs and solve their problems. There’s no such thing as one-size-fits-all when it comes to Sacramento property management. Your needs as a first-time investor are much different than the needs of an experienced owner. Single-family homes require a different approach than apartment buildings. We get it.

Protecting the Investment and the Investor

You need to trust your tenants. Our Sacramento leasing services start with strategic marketing that will bring in the types of renters you’d like to have living in your home. We want people who are excited to turn your house into a home. We want to help them succeed as tenants.

California landlord tenant laws have become more complex than ever. With rent control and just cause evictions and screening standards and security deposit requirements – it’s easy to get lost. We know it’s confusing and we know it can feel like property owners don’t have the protections they need. That’s why you hire us. We love real estate and we love property management. It doesn’t bother us at all to read pages and pages of proposed legislation. We’re excited about watching what the courts do. We spend time at conferences and in committees to stay up to date on the latest laws and best practices. You can safely leave the laws and compliance to us. We’ll protect you and we’ll protect your rental property.

Protecting Property Condition: Rental Property Maintenance

The value of your asset depends on good maintenance. Taking care of your property also impacts tenant retention. You don’t want to lose good residents because you refused to fix a dripping faucet. Keeping your property in great condition isn’t negotiable, especially when it’s being managed by Key Realty Center. We want you to earn as much as you can on your investment – now, and in the future.

This requires an immediate response to emergency and routine maintenance. It requires a budget that won’t leave you wondering how to pay for a roof repair. We aren’t shy – we’ll talk about what you’re willing to spend and when. We can make the repairs and tell you about them later or check in with you for approval before we spend any money on maintenance. It’s all about your comfort level.

A rental home is often a person’s largest asset. We’re going to make sure you’re in the loop, whether it’s a $50 garbage disposal reset or routine sink inspections that are going to prevent a plumbing disaster.

Investing in property is emotional. It’s hard to treat it like a business. That’s why we’re here – to offer the subjective and experienced insight and advice you need to make good decisions.

What Our Clients Say


We were searching for a house for months on the internet and going to open houses, but within a few days of hiring Rod Luman we found THE house. He is very patient with dealing with lots of questions and is very tied in with the Elk Grove and Sacramento real estate community. We’d recommend him to anyone!

Tenants Are the Customers

Sometimes, as a tenant, you can feel like you’re nothing more than a rent check.

We remember renting our Sacramento apartments and homes. We remember the joy and the challenges of roommates. We remember being new to an area and getting frustrated when property managers and landlords simply did not care.

We won’t accept it. Our team is here to ensure you have the best possible rental experience.

Future Tenants – Live with Us!

Moving can be fun but sometimes it’s just plain awful, and we want to take away as much of the stress as we can. We can help you be prepared because at Key Realty Center, we have moved around A LOT. Talk to us about the application process and the move in funds. If you have a pet, we’ll tell you what that means for pet policies and fees. We’ll even send you a sample lease agreement before we ask you to sign one. Need a moving checklist? We’ve got that, too.

What Our Clients Say


I’ve been working with Key Realty Center for more than 5 years. As an out-of-town owner, Rod helped take care of the property, find new tenants, collect rent and deal with evictions…Rod and his staff are always friendly and responsive. I would recommend them to owners who prefer being hands off with their rental properties.

After working with a couple of poor performing local Sacramento area property management companies, I discovered Key Realty Center in early 2023. Key Realty Center stands head and shoulders above the previous property management companies. Rod and his office staff(namely Ana) truly understand the needs of home owners as well as tenants and do an exceptional job in terms of customer service and most importantly communication. They remain on top of any reported repairs, issues, and concerns. Their experience level in terms of property management consultative advice is very apparent. They are the best in the area - I highly recommend Key Realty Center!

We are the best Property Management Company in the Sacramento Area.

Key Realty Center has been involved in the local real estate and rental market for years. We understand the price points, the tenant pool, and the local vendors and contractors.
