Candice Gurfinkel
BCy Diana Alcaraz, Events and Education Planning
andice Gurfinkel has more than 12 years of experience working as a property manager. With her background in psychology, she often jokes that her background has come in handy when dealing with tenants and owners. Her
husband started MCM Property Management, Inc. years ago and they have been members of the Apartment Association of Greater Los Angeles for almost as long.
Candice began working at MCM Property Management nearly 12 years ago to help her husband with the day to day operations. They
started their company with one employee and have grown rapidly over the years. She prides herself and her company on their goal of making both clients and tenants happy and being successful at what she refers to as a “balancing act.” She talked about the difficulties of having homeless encampments in front of properties, tenants not reporting maintenance issues or keeping their units clean and safe, and you can hear the pride in her voice when she said “Aside from that, we run like a fine-oiled machine.” They currently manage approximately 1,500 units.
As our conversation began wrapping up, she said, “AAGLA has been really invaluable, especially during COVID with the informative webinars and advisors.”
