To whom it may concern
My name is Teresa Flores. The reason for this letter is to recommend Justin Cochrane as a property manager. I have known Justin for 17 years. The complex's I was living in were surrounded of drugs, gangs, crime and violence. The neighborhood was not under a caring company.
Three years later Justin became property manager. I was able to see a difference immediately. He quickly removed all the tenants who had not been paying there rent, causing problems, and destroying property. He made the environment safe and trusting. He's always willing to connect with the people of the neighborhood together , making the surroundings family friendly. He’s the guy you want running a business, he’s responsible, caring , and always doing what’s best for the company and for costumers.
Thanks to Justin the property is the best it has ever been. Justin made people know it was a good place to settle down a while . Others noticed this change immediately resulting in more applicants. Families have been living there for years and have been grateful for everything Justin has provided. They are happy, comfortable, and safe.
The reasons above are why I think Justin is a great property manager. I would recommend him to any and every business. He is a blessing to every neighborhood he manages and was born to do what he does. You will not regret your choice!

"Thanks Justin. You are amazing, even on the weekend!! Our water heater was replaced. Hope you and your family have a good evening!!" - Text from Rea - tenant at 434 N. L St., Lompoc
I received property management services provided by Justin Cochrane. The services were carried out in a very professional and successful manner. Anytime, as a resident, I called for assistance, there would be an appointment made and it would be kept promptly and efficiently. I did not have any difficulty getting necessary repairs or other services when needed and was very pleased with the fast and courteous manner in which they were handled. When I called Justin, I got results. If property management services were required in a complex or individual unit and I was a landlord or owner, I would definitely refer Justin Cochrane as a property manager. As a tenant, I was always taken care of rapidly and productively and never had to worry about reliability and keeping the place maintained well.

I live some distance from Santa Barbara, and I use 805 Property Management to oversee my properties. I would like to endorse Justin Cochrane as a property manager for both Owners and Tenants. I have been dealing with him for about 4 years and have only the highest praise for his business practices and ethics. He has dealt promptly and fairly with each and every issue which has come up over the years. Additionally, he is an excellent communicator and advises me of any issues as they arise, not after the fact. I will leave his actual resume up to him to present, but I vouch for him completely and without hesitation.

I am writing to offer a strong endorsement for the services of Justin Cochrane and 805 Property Management. I am a multi-family real estate owner with 15 properties, 6 of which are located in Santa Maria and managed by Justin and his team. Justin is extremely reliable, hardworking and motivated. Whenever a vacancy occurs at one of our properties, Justin is on the case immediately. He supervises all repairs required, takes photos and a video of of the property and has it listed immediately on Craigs List and other websites. Justin does not rest until the unit is rented. He thinks and acts like an owner. Justin operates with an extended team of handyman, painters, landscapers and other service providers that are able to make repairs and improvements in a timely fashion and at very reasonable prices. Finally, in regards to reporting, my monthly financial reports arrive promptly and are accurate. If I ever have a question or concern Justin is able to respond within hours versus days or weeks. I would recommend using him for all of your property management needs and am happy to serve as a direct reference should you have any questions.

Justin Cochrane has been managing our 38 unit building since 2008. During that time he has not only worked diligently to rent vacant units quickly but also coordinated the updating of the vacancies. Consequently as they came vacant again he was able to rent them quickly.
New tenants remark how professional he is in handling their work requests promptly.

To Whom It May Concern
While the Chief Operating Officer at MJW Investments Justin Cochrane oversaw our apartment portfolio for the past 3 years while the company he formerly was employed managed several assets classes for us along the central coast. It was Justin’s management oversight that impressed me most.
Justin is an innovative self-starter, who excels in a high-level of autonomy and accountability. He is punctual and typically exceeds expectation. Of his many skills, his ability to foster relationships cross- functionally in an ever changing, fast paced environment has proven to be extremely beneficial to our company. He handles pressure well and is adept at problem identification and resolution. Whether the situation calls for taking a tough stance with tenants in rough neighborhoods or handling the renovation of an entire building, Justin unlike many manager obtains a vast knowledge of construction methods and pricing to perform vast turnover while understanding what the tenant is looking for, while not breaking the bank at a per unit cost but understanding the return on investment. Justin not only met these extreme situations or tight deadlines, but he often beat them. At the same time he continued to produce higher NOI at the end of the month for our portfolio.
Justin is an invaluable asset to any property management company, so much that I asked him to invest with me and only if he managed the properties.
I highly recommend hiring him. If you’d like to discuss his attributes in more detail, please don’t hesitate to contact me. (310) 345-4665
I have known Justin for half my life both as a friend and on a business level. Truly nothing has been anything but positive. Over the years I have been happy to recommend any clients of mine to him for any needs they might have regarding property management. You can expect honest and hard work as well as a very friendly level of service. Please feel free to personally call me if you have any questions. Kevin Schmidtchen, Realtor Sotheby's Int'l Realty.
My name is Bob D'Ambra I am a general contractor. I have worked with Justin Cochrane on a variety of projects since 2008. Justin has managed some large units in the Santa Barbaara area that take time and effort to manage correctly.
When it comes to getting property rentals ready, I can candidly state he is in focus and knows what’s best for his clients, both the owner and the tenants. He’s has been easy to work for and explains his requests clearly.
