We Are Here To Serve You

At Summit Leasing Group we offer two main services, tenant placement (leasing) and property management for single family residences.  Whether you own one single-family home or several, you have two very specific goals in mind: to keep each property consistently filled with reliable tenants and to keep that rental income rolling in. Whatever your situation – rest assured that we are prepared to help with all your single family home leasing and management needs!

We are mindful of the many moving parts that must work together in order to successfully and continually enable you to meet your goals. From tenant placement to rent collection, from maintenance to evictions, a landlord must constantly balance cash flow, expenses, tenant needs and, legal requirements.

This makes for a complicated business if not handled correctly in a systematic, reliable, efficient way.  In an industry where many property managers are ill-equipped to handle the diverse demands of the business, Summit Leasing Group, located in the High Desert is just that—a real solution to the real issues that arise when you need your residential property managed.

Maybe you never planned on being a landlord—you’ve been unable to find the right investment home or the right tenants, had to relocate for a job, or inherited a new property. Perhaps you are just entering the rental investment market, need to get your property rented, or you’re having difficulty with an existing tenant. You might also be a seasoned real estate investor who specializes in owning single-family homes.

We lease and manage residential property for individual owners, investors and financial institutions.  Put Summit Leasing Group team of professionals to work for you.

What Our Clients Are Saying

My previous property manager did a poor job so I decided to switch to a new property management company.  I called several property managers on an April Saturday.  Charlie Galvati was the only manager that I was able to speak to right away.  Without knowing him before or having any referral, I came to his office for property management help.  After talking to him or an hour, I felt very comfortable with his experience and professionalism so I decided to sign the property management contract with him.  It turns out that I made the right decision to hire Charlie.  He helped to find the right handyman to fix and clean the house and secure the tenants fairly quick.  I have no issue with the tenants so far and am very happy about Charlie’s service.  I would have no reservation to recommend Charlie Galvati, Broker of Summit Leasing Group to any of my friends who have rentals in the area.

Several years ago my neighbor Monica had received a last minute relocation letter from her job at Wells Fargo to relocate from California to Texas in a short span. Monica was extremely stressed out about her sudden relocation to another state in such a short notice. She had found Mr. Galvati business card and made contact with him. Charlie found a wonderful family for her home that became good neighbors of mine in a short period of time. A few years later, we decided to buy another home and rent our primary residence. I made contact with Monica now living in Texas about her intimate experience with Mr. Galvati and services. Monica, was extremely happy about his services and was worry free because Mr. Galvati was the main point of contact and liaison between Monica and her tenants. She never dealt with them in any way shape or form.
My wife Norma and I decided to give Mr. Galvati a call and inquire about his services to interview and hire him as our property management company. We did not have the time, patience, knowledge and wisdom in hiring tenants nor did we want to deal with any headaches. Mr. Galvati fees were very reasonable! Charlie, displayed: honesty, integrity, loyalty, caring, compassion, knowledge, wisdom and expertise in property management. Charlie had outstanding communication with Norma and I during the short time he market and advertised our home, interview potential tenants and conducted a background checks on all applicants. He had potential tenants within 24 hours of signing our contract and fully executed agreement within a week for different tenants that we thought were a better fit for our home. We were very happy with Charlies services and recommended him to other neighbors shortly after. They hired Charlie and he now manages their homes. They are all very happy.
If you are looking into hiring a property management company. Look no further! Hire Charlie Galvati and you will be 100% guaranteed. We are real people whom would be happy to receive a call or email from you in regards to Charlie Galvati services.
