Ed Hochman's career in property management started in 2003 when he took a job with AIMCO at a 1279-unit property in Woodland Hills, CA. His primary duties were to supervise the maintenance team, and lease apartments. He established and managed a "preventative maintenance program" and was ranked top leasing consultant, achieving a score of 100 in a blinded customer service satisfaction survey.
In 2004, Ed was promoted to the position of assistant manager of a 279-unit, class "A", mixed use property in Los Angeles, CA where he managed the leasing team, coordinated resident relations, resolved resident complaints, and administered accounts receivables and payables.
A year later, Ed accepted an offer from Advanced Management and took the position of property manager on a 206 unit property in Lakewood, CA. During his time there, Ed helped coordinate complete rehabilitation of the property, and was awarded the title "Manager of the year" in both 2006 and 2009.
He was able to maintain very high occupancy levels while at the same time increasing revenues. He initiated a profitable recycling program which was then duplicated companywide. As a result of his success in managing the property, Ed was then hand-picked by the owners to help revive another property they own.
Upon completing his graduate studies in 2010, Ed left Advanced Management and took a job as a Regional Manager for Norman Jacobson Property Management where he successfully managed 17 properties in Southern California.
In December 2012, Ed received his broker's license and decided to venture out on his own. In 2013, he founded Hawk Management.
Ed graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the University of California Irvine and holds a Master of Business Administration degree from Loyola Marymount University.
In 2020, Ed served as the Vice President for the Los Angeles chapter of NARPM, and in 2021 he became the chapter's President (see link below).
