Reviews & Testimonials

Although investors in Los Angeles residential real estate, we are based overseas. So we needed a local management team that would provide a reliable and comprehensive service. Preferably a family-led operation which would also ensure continuity with the senior management. A Los Angeles realtor friend recommended Lotus. He has been proved absolutely right.

Margaret S.

We live in the San Diego area and Lotus West Properties has taken care of our building for many years. They manage all phases of the business smoothly and profitably. The building is in excellent hands.
Carol P.

My family has a portfolio of properties primarily in the Brentwood and Westwood areas of Los Angeles. Lotus West Properties has taken a huge workload off our shoulders and have done a great job managing our buildings according to our needs. Now we have more free time to take family vacations and see our grandkids, and the stress of managing these buildings is no longer our burden.
