About Us

In 1960 Barbara Marquardt opened her own Real Estate office- "Marquardt Realtors". This came after working for many years in Real Estate while a single mother raising her 5 daughters. Barbara was dedicated to creating opportunity in her community for everyone to have equal access to real estate - working in the industry and/or investing in our neighborhoods.

Over the years "Marquardt Realtors" embraced and promoted rental housing in the community. In the 70's Barbara shifted her focus from sales to property management. She understood the importance of assisting clients with optimizing their investments in rental properties-to providing our community with desirable, clean and affordable rental housing. Marquardt "Realtors" became "Marquardt Property Management" in the 80's as the office dedicated itself to property management.

Barbara served as director with the Oakland Board of Realtors and as President of the Women's Council of Realtors. She stayed engaged and involved with the Oakland Public schools as each of her daughters traveled thru the school system, while working at the office and volunteering in the community. Although Barbara officially retired in 1989 she continued to be a part of the family business that her two daughters continued to maintain as their mother had. On April 11, 2003 Barbara passed away. Barbara's passion for public service continues with the generations of her family who remain dedicated to the business.

Marquardt Property Management adheres to the dedication and values that Barbara built the business nearly 60 years ago. We are a family business, and our clients are part of our family.
