Friendly, Innovative yet Conventional…

Rancho Mesa Properties, the property management arm of Alan C. Townsend and Associates, follows in the tradition of three generations providing personal, professional real estate services.

The Townsend family and other agents of Rancho Mesa Properties have managed rental property for multiple decades. We understand what it takes to successfully maintain continuous occupancy and low maintenance cost performance for long term investments.

Rancho Mesa Properties has dedicated agents who work and reside in each of the primary San Diego regions. This means prompt and efficient service for your property regardless of your specific property address.

Knowing their vision for long term client relationships were the same, Phillip Morris sold Rancho Mesa Properties, his family’s property management business of 17 years, to Alan C. Townsend in the year of 2000.

Besides natural client growth, Rancho Mesa Properties has grown through strategic alliances based on the common ‘thread’ of absolute commitment to personal, professional property management services.

This alliance gives us a strong presence San Diego’s North County as well as allowing further expansion into the East and South County areas.
