About Us

Our Story

Navigate Management Company was founded to help investors maximize their bottom line. Through our own personal experiences relying on a property management company to manage our income producing properties, we recognized landlords were not receiving the service they deserve. Our property managers provide you with complete access, advice and information, with full transparency.  Our property managers recognize the need for technology, resident screening, accurate leases, and much more to best leverage your investment. Navigate Management Company was created with a specific purpose. Our purpose, then and now, is to maximize the investor’s bottom line while providing a boutique-like operation with expertise in all aspects of the property management process.  Navigate Management Company is licensed by the Texas Real Estate Commission under License #9006066.

Meet the Team

Ernesto B. Andujar
Vice President of Operations
Ernesto’s first experience with real estate started with his grandfather. His grandfather owned two multi-family units in Brooklyn, NY, and his mother was the superintendent for both investments. As a little boy he would take a walk with his mother to knock on each door and collect rent, while creating relationships with the tenants and their families. This relational family business model stirred a passion for real estate within Ernesto. Now, Ernesto’s love for real estate is being pumped into the very heart of Navigate Management Company.

Luis Garcia

Luis is one of the major reasons why NMC is able to provide such a high standard of personal property management. His purposeful approach to customer service is precisely why our team is thankful Luis came all the way from Brooklyn, NY.

It is also quite possible that Luis will quickly become one of your good friends because that is just how he makes people feel.
