Our Approach

We have always viewed ourselves as partners with property managers and owners. Their best interests are our best interests. Maybe that is why we behave a bit more like consultants rather than order takers. We know your property as well as anyone and constantly strive to improve it.

Our “one call does it all approach” is an extension of that. We know property managers are extremely busy and the more services we can provide, the easier it is on them. In fact, we started that way back in 1987. A shopping mall developer asked his friend Jim Swindle, an aspiring screenwriter, to create a company that provided all facility services under one roof. Swindle was soon swept up in the success of the property maintenance business.

Our History

Starting with six employees and two trucks, the business outgrew its Van Nuys offices within two years and moved to Santa Monica, serving 40 strip mall clients by that time. Another two years later the burgeoning company moved to a facility in Culver City, with 20 employees now servicing 150 shopping centers.

Throughout the 1990s, our reputation grew, picking up marquee clients such as USC, Public Storage, and the City of Burbank counted among the more than 300 properties served by 50 employees at the end of the decade. With the addition of offices in San Diego, we had doubled again. We also continued to add services such as irrigation repair, steam cleaning, janitorial, day porter, and a 24/7 commercial handyman program.

The 2000s decade brought additional new offices in the Inland Empire and Orange County. Climbing to 120 employees, we added construction, painting and tenant improvement to our services.

We continued to grow into the 2010s with expansion into the Central Valley. Along the way we picked up more marquee clients such as Smart & Final, Amtrak, and The Irvine Company. We expanded with numerous state agencies, city governments, and educational institutions. We also continued picking up more grocery stores, restaurants, and retail stores. More commercial developers discovered the convenience of our full range of services as we added ADA compliance, trash chute cleaning and stormwater management.

Our Culture

As we grew, the company culture began to take shape and differentiate us from others. The building and landscape maintenance industry often finds companies operating in a patriarchal structure. Tradition and familial legacies guide many of their policies. However, CAM Property Services started with an entrepreneurial lineage, shaping the company culture that continues today.

Our company operates with a meritocracy growth mindset, rewarding and advancing employees on achievement and contributions to the overall good of the business. Many have found a steady and rewarding career with the company, although the process continues to be refined. The company also values leadership development and those showing a willingness to dive deep into their profession.

CAM Property Services Today

The company continues to meet the rising challenges of the commercial property services industry. The construction division was spun off into a sister company Omnia Pacific Construction, specializing in shopping center remodel, tenant improvements, ADA upgrades, and parking lot makeovers. In response to the viral pandemic, we addressed business concerns with creating sanitized safe shopping zones and temporary outdoor spaces.

As we move into the future, we will continue adding our expert voice to the conversation and leading with innovation, rapid response to marketplace conditions, and developing young new leaders to serve the ever-changing needs of our beloved clients.

Looking Ahead to Tomorrow

We think of ourselves as environmental stewards, not just for your property but for the greater good. We look for opportunities to improve outcomes through the application of Environment, Health, and Safety (EHS) standards.

From green cleaning products to thermal drone energy audits, we help clients reach sustainable goals while achieving cost effectiveness.

Our team constantly innovates with new services to meet client needs for the future, such as solar panel cleaning and other renewable energy services.

We look forward to helping you with industry-best solutions yielding safe, cost-effective, and long-lasting results for your property.

Today, the CAM Property Services client portfolio encompasses more than 1,300 retail, office, industrial, government, educational and HOA properties throughout Southern and Central California.

The company is known for its industry-leading customer service, reliability, innovation and environmentally friendly practices.
