Our company was founded in 1980 as Merit Property Management, and over the years we have grown to become one of California's leading full-service residential property management companies, with more than 950 community associations representing over 215,000 residential and commercial units
Today, we offer a wide range of community association management services, including physical, administrative, accounting and financial services, developer consulting and real estate leasing and brokerage services.
In 2007, Merit became part of FirstService Residential, one of the largest residential property management companies in North America. This was an important milestone in the history of our company, enabling us to participate in many differentiating programs and industry-leading services that continue to deliver significant added value to our clients.
In June 2013, we experienced another major milestone as our parent company unified all of its property management companies under the FirstService Residential brand. At that time, Merit Property Management was renamed FirstService Residential, the name we proudly hold today. In addition to enhancing the visibility of our affiliation with the FirstService Residential family, the rebranding further benefits our clients by enabling us to leverage our organization’s shared resources, best practices and collective buying power, while continuing to maintain our own local expertise, caring relationships and dedicated customer service – the qualities that helped us become the community association management leader in California.
