About Us.

With a wealth of experience in expertly managing and leasing Bay Area properties dating back to 2015, Ukiyo Property Management has evolved from a personal venture into a thriving business. Our journey began when we established this endeavor as a means to efficiently oversee our own Bay Area rental properties. As we gained momentum and proficiency, we extended our services to assist friends and family in managing their rental properties.

Through word-of-mouth referrals from satisfied clients, our 'side project' organically transitioned into a referral-only small business. Fueled by valuable insights and feedback from our growing network, we recognized the demand for a distinct approach to property management. This realization led us to make a pivotal decision in 2022: to make our services available to the general public for the first time.

Today, Ukiyo Property Management boasts a dedicated team of experts committed to meeting the diverse needs of our clients. We take pride in our journey of growth and transformation, and we're excited to continue providing top-tier property management services to the Bay Area community.

Untangle Yourself From the Day-to-Day

We offer a solution to the challenges that come with the owning rental property. Their award winning property managers take care of the day-to-day tasks, using industry contacts and technology to streamline the management process. This allows property owners to relax, knowing that their property is well-maintained and leased to respectful tenants.

    What They Say About Us

    "I interviewed around 5-6 property management companies when I decided to rent my condo in the Union City/Fremont area and Nick by far stood out from all the rest. He was thoroughly professional, responsive and came out to meet with me and see the property in person. He recommended professional contractors that did an amazing a job and marketing my property so professionally. He is thorough in his research and makes relevant recommendations based on his knowledge and expertise of the housing and rental market. He has kept me updated every step of the process and has delivered on time as promised on each task. He has provided me with a peach of mind on something that I thought would give me anxiety. I can't recommend him enough. I have given his contact info to every homeowner in my life. I look forward to a long and successful relationship with him as he manages my condo rental in the future."
    Nilufar Shuja
    I am very satisfied with Ukiyo Property Management and enjoying my new life in Pleasanton.
    I've worked with Nick and Casey for many years and couldn't recommend a better property management team and company. They are professional, trustworthy, hard-working and understand all facets of property management, leasing services, tenant relationship management, lease enforcement, and property showings.
    Scott K Raymond
    In my experience, the Ukiyo team offers the ultimate service and property management. Trustworthy, reliable, and efficient - highly recommended! Their knowledge of the rental market, state and local regulations, and vast experience handling a wide range of tenant issues, is beyond impressive. No matter how minor the issue or question, they have always responded quickly and professionally, kept me informed when needed, and freely offered strategic professional advice.
    Claudia Bruce
    My property was rented out within 3 days thanks to Ukiyo. We did some renovations to the property to get it ready for rent, all of which was handled by Nick at Ukiyo Property Management. The renovations turned out amazing - not to mention for a great price! They had the property listed in no time with amazing photos and virtual tour. You can really trust Nick to get the job done quickly and professionally. Highly, highly recommend!
    Pauline Chen
    I've had rental properties for many years, but was always anxious when my renters called for a repair. By the time the renters called, the problem was out of control ... the problem was worse than they had described, factored with their failed attempts. Since having Ukiyo to manage my property, I've had reliable and appropriate rent increases and fewer headaches facing the fixes. The amount of time between vacancies is much shorter, and Ukiyo has only provided the most responsible and considerate renters. Nick has been personable and responsive to calls and requests. I appreciate Nick and his team taking care of my properties ... no more hours looking up and interviewing contractors for repairs, and no more quibbling over rent increases with renters. Thanks Nick, great work ... great team!
    Carolyn Louie
    We are a partner vendor for them, we provide them with professional real estate photography. We have experienced first hand the professionalism they use to handle each home they manage. They are 100% reliable and will make sure your property is well taken care of. If you want the best outcome for your rental properties this is the company you should partner with.
    Ana Aguilar
    Ukiyo has been fantastic to work with in helping us rent out and manage our rental property. We are first time landlords and Nick and his team made it easy for us to move across the country and feel at ease that our asset is being properly managed. I would highly recommend working with Ukiyo to help manage any rental property!
    Sarah Levinson
    Ukiyo property management and especially Nick has been a godsend. He's extremely responsive, communicative, and well versed in how to handle each situation with tenants. He will be my go to for all property management in Oakland.
    Sarang Ratanjee
    Nicholas and his team were great to work with. They were able to curate their management and leasing approach to my specific needs. They are hands on and are highly responsive.
    GL J
    My childhood home, which we rent out and manage from out-of-state, came vacant when our longtime tenant left. We had tons of deferred maintenance and no clue where to begin. A realtor recommended Nick, who supervised the old house's transformation into a luxury rental — floors refinished, walls painted, new windows and doors, furnace rehab, new appliances and lighting throughout — and had the place rented within six weeks — for $1,000 more per month than we had been charging. But what particularly impressed me was that, despite the speed, Nick was careful with our renovation dollars. For example, he replaced a cooktop instead of the whole stove. We were so lucky to find him.
    Steven Goldsmith
    I have nothing but amazing things to say about this company and the service provided. The level of professionalism and expertise that Nick brings to the table is top notch. He is cognizant of your goals as a property owner and caters his business approach to meet your individual needs. Nick provides a level of business planning to ensure maximum profit, all while providing the highest level of customer service to my clients. He has an incredible level of integrity, business etiquette and I would highly recommend this business to represent you for any of your property management needs.
    Katherine Parisi
    I have worked with both Nick and Casey in previous property management capacities and will always have major respect and appreciation for both of them. They are hardworking, ethical, personable and incredibly knowledgeable in the industry. Whether you're in the market for leasing, maintenance management, real estate marketing or beyond, you will always be well taken care of by Ukiyo Realty!
    Clay Anderson
    I would give Ukiyo PM 6 stars if the option were available. I had property management in place for a particular property, and the property sat vacant for nearly 9 months, upon which I was told to significantly lower the monthly lease amount. After reaching an impasse and deciding to try other property management options referred by friends, I found my efforts to be exercises in futility- I could not even coordinate a meeting for the other company reps to come see the property, though they all expressed interest in managing the property. Frustrated and beginning to feel trapped in what felt like a perpetual episode of, The Twilight Zone, I took to the internet and found Ukiyo PM. I sent a message, and Nick replied promptly. We set a time to meet at the property, we discussed expectations, and he got to work. Throughout the process, Nick exhibited outstanding professionalism, unrivaled market expertise, and superb client engagement. Within 3 months, not only did he get the property leased, the monthly lease is significantly higher than I expected. Christmas came early this year!

    Property Management

    When you're ready to improve your property, we can manage the vendor bid process for you. We'll get at least three bids from qualified vendors for each improvement property and submit them to you for review and approval before any work begins. Once the work begins, we will update you on its progress weekly. Once the property is completed to our satisfaction, we'll send you the before and after photos so you can see it yourself without visiting the property and authorize you to pay the vendor in full without worry.
