To provide excellent full-service property management for our building owners and the thousands of residents who call a Prodesse property their home.

Be Good. Do Good. Live Good.

This initiative was inspired by our desire to embody goodness and do our best in everything we do, every day. This includes making decisions based upon what is right and ethical, going the extra mile, being mindful of our actions, putting ourselves in your shoes, initiating simple acts of kindness, giving back to our local community, and leaving the world a better place than the way we found it.

Being good leads to doing good which leads to living good.

We care deeply about the communities of which we are a part. This civic concern is exemplified in Prodesse’s active support of affordable housing through its support of the Housing Industry Foundation and assistance to the St. Francis Center in their operation of the St. Clare Apartments in Redwood City and Carriage Manor Apartments in East Palo Alto.

Where We Volunteer


One of the best decisions we ever made was to choose Prodesse Property Group to manage our multi-unit projects. Michael and Lynn Pierce have created a company that embodies honorable and ethical values and they strive to meet those values and standards every day. In an industry beset by challenges and ripe with opportunity, they focus where it is important in seeing both the forest and the trees. We are appreciative of their work on our behalf and would recommend them without hesitation.
