real estate and property management consultants

Welcome to the ST. JOHN & ASSOCIATES (SJA) website. You will find here information about SJA services, Michael's articles on property management and housing regulation, links to related websites for resources, and other information about St. John & Associates and housing regulation.

 

Our services fall into several distinct categories:

 

  • Property Management Consulting for Berkeley property owners: rent control, tenants-in-common ownership, zoning applications, and condominium conversions.
  •  

  • Economic Analysis focused on housing regulations with an emphasis on mobile home parks and expert witness services in lawsuits involving fair return on investment.
  •  

  • Alternative dispute resolution (Mediation) Services for families, couples, landlords and tenants, and others who would like to resolve conflicts and find compassionate, peaceful ways of living and working together.

 

In a regulatory environment that is comprehensive, ever-changing, and strongly pro-tenant, it is our mission to provide knowledgeable, principled consultation and representation to property owners and managers in Berkeley and, in the mobile home context, throughout California. At the same time, as an economist, Michael St. John, Ph.D. works to clarify the underlying economic issues and, through advocacy and expert witness testimony, to influence public policy in ways that reduce the imbalance inherent in most rent control ordinances. In addition, being trained in mediation, Michael attempts to find peaceful ways of addressing the conflicts that come up in his consulting work.
