About Us

“My vision was to build a company that would last 100 years or more—a company in which subsequent generations of our family would carry on the values of high standards, integrity and service which are the foundation of this company. That philosophy has served us well for over forty years and will serve us well for the next sixty.” - Carolyn Chandler

My practice keeps me busy and fully engaged in my career. For the past 20 years, Chandler has managed a beautiful Victorian-style building for me. Without Chandler’s support and guidance, I would not own income property – it’s their specialty, not mine.”

Kay lucas

Founder & General Partner, Lucas Law

I own a beautiful apartment building in the Marina but don't have the time to manage it myself. As a busy cardiologist, I like to spend the spare time I have with my family, or windsurfing on the Bay—my second love. Chandler has been successfully managing my property since 1991, and I wouldn't have it any other way.”
