About A Better Property Management Company
A Better Property Management Co., Inc. was established to manage residential income property. Our success is in the detail and your bottom line. The name, A Better Property Management Co., Inc. has set the standard for our staff to follow. We work to be better informed, to produce better tenant relations—to be the best at what we do. ABPMCO.Inc. is constantly trying to surpass our name. It is a challenge that we look forward to every day.
A Better Property Management Co, Inc. has a team of professional staff members and onsite managers that can be equated with excellence in customer service, professionalism, and ethical business conduct.
Steven Moffett, the broker, is the financial controller and supervises each property’s financial transaction. Steve earned his degree in Finance at CSULB. He is a past member of Kiwanis and was Commodore of Alamitos Bay Yacht Club. In his spare time, he cruises his Jenneaux 45.2 and races sailboats in big boat regattas to Hawaii and Mexico.
Rebecca Reid Moffett is the supervisor of office procedures and protocol. Rebecca is a past President of the Apartment Association, CA Southern Cities and is currently a Director Emeritus. She has served on most committees at the association, has taught management seminars, has been a guest speaker at association events, and has been an expert witness in court for landlords. Rebecca taught sailing while earning her degree in East European History at CSULB. Her 5th year was spent studying Real Estate Management.
The maintenance supervisor works closely with all the vendors to ensure that every repair or replacement is done with quality work at the lowest price to the client. Many of the vendors we use have worked with us for over 27 years. They know personally the properties we manage and take extra care with their work. In addition to periodic exterior inspections, annual walkthroughs are performed at each property to check smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, plumbing leaks, and recently, mildew, as this has become a 'hot topic' among tenants.
The leasing agent spends time with every prospective tenant to help them find the apartment or home that will fit their financial needs. The receptionist, working in tandem, is on the frontline all day long and has a smile for everyone who calls or visits the office. Friendliness and personal service are one of our trademarks.
Apartment managers are a huge component of the teamwork machine. The managers represent our company while they are performing their tasks at the building they manage. We hire managers that are friendly, courteous and want to give 150% to the care of your building while keeping the residents happy.
Marketing and Exposure…
Getting your house or apartment filled with residents is our primary goal and getting the word out is the only way to do that. Advertising must be simple, direct, and appear in many forms to be effective. We advertise your rental via newspapers, signage, rental lists, the internet, and fliers.
We are A Better Property Management Experience…

We offer up to date market trends and have recently incorporated the RUBS billing system into our organization.
“I really enjoyed living in Long Beach. Thank you for all your help and advance notice of all that was happening in our apartment building. I hope that I will find the same type of property management company up in the Bay Area.”
“I would like to thank you for being a wonderful property management company. ABPMCo,Inc. has always been very professional and a pleasure to deal with.”
“We have really enjoyed staying under A Better Property Management Co, Inc., you guys have been great.”
“You REALLY are the best! I never have to even think about stuff, it just gets handled. Thank you so much!”
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continual excellence in the management of our property. Your personal attention, pride of management and hands-on control was a real asset through our period of ownership. Thank you again.”
“Thank you VERY much for all the help on the sale of my Condo and for the GREAT job with managing my property all these (14) years. A Better Property Management Company made my job as landlord so much easier I never had to worry about screening tenants, making repairs, or collecting rent. When it came time to sell my property, you worked very well with the Real Estate agent (whom you had recommended!) by utilizing your knowledge of the local real estate market as well as of my condo unit and complex. I honestly could not have done it myself. I feel I got top dollar on the sale and my investment in the property has paid off. If you ever need a reference, please don't hesitate.”
“I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your expert and efficient Management of the properties that Bob Bauer and I formerly owned. Your services were so superior to any other management company we used in the past that I seldom, if ever, had reason to contact you. Please know however that I have been very appreciative of the professional and courteous manner your company performed during our business relationship.”
“Without a doubt, your services are again above and beyond the call of duty. It's always a pleasure working with you. Professional, courteous, and a great attitude about getting the job done has become your trademark when you are on the job. I only wish all of the management companies had your work abilities. I know that the bank greatly appreciates your work on the property. They have informed me that you are guaranteed to get all of their projects in your area. It's not often I feel comfortable to recommend people, but in your case, when I do recommend your services, it is always a pleasure. Thank you for a job well done.”
“I've enjoyed renting with A Better Property. Your courteous and quick help, and from Robin in particular, means that I'd surely recommend you to potential tenants. Thank you again.”
“I have enjoyed my stay at your property under your management. You have been responsive and understanding when it comes to things needed around the building and apartment and I thank you for that. This building is in a very quiet neighborhood and along with that comes a sense of safety. Thank you.”
“We would like to thank ABPMCo,Inc. for giving us the opportunity to be able to rent from such a great company. We have been at the residence for about 4 years now and have had a wonderful experience. It is very unfortunate to be leaving, but we hope in the near future that we may be able to rent another great unit. Thank you for all your help and attentive service.”
“We are in Panama and expect to go through the Canal on July 14th. It is one of those "bucket list" items. Thank you so much for taking such good care of things at home and allowing us to live the dream.”
