Mission: To create great communities where we work, live, and shop.
Decron's origins begin in the 1950s when Jack M. Nagel first arrived in Southern California. A Polish-born immigrant and Holocaust survivor, Jack arrived in America, first to New York and then eventually onto Los Angeles, with no more than the shirt on his back.
Sensing opportunity in Southern California's rapid growth and determined to succeed in his new home country, Jack began building single family homes for US Army veterans. With time and tremendous determination, his business grew and prospered. The company went on to build thousands of homes in Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura counties. Eventually, the business transitioned to include multifamily residential apartments. Jack focused on West Hollywood and other budding areas of Los Angeles. In the 1980s, while he continued to develop income properties, he expanded into retail and office properties. Not content to merely work as a developer, Jack operated all of his completed projects together with his son, David, who joined him in 1981 following his graduation from New York University. The business continued to grow following David's completion of an MBA from the University of Southern California and his gradual rise in the company after serving in its construction and property management divisions.
In 1988, David was appointed President of Decron Properties Corp. His responsibilities quickly increased to oversee all aspects of their real estate business. Decron expanded its portfolio of investments through more than twenty acquisitions, purchasing multifamily apartments, retail centers, and office buildings. The company also continued its legacy of construction with major development projects throughout Southern California. The overwhelming majority of residential and retail projects developed in the 1970s and 1980s are still owned and managed by Decron.
Decron Properties Corp. considers community activism and engagement a core value. Our company is involved in a number of community-based causes and charitable activities through board work, raising funds and awareness, and volunteering on the front lines. The causes we support span a range from annual community parades to education to alleviating hunger and food drives.
As a company, Decron provides annual support to the following charitable and community causes:
Decron is committed to the importance of education. Every year, Decron is the lead sponsor for a golf tournament to support Yeshiva University High School of Los Angeles (YULA). To learn more about the importance of schools like YULA, watch the below interview with Decron's president and CEO, David Nagel.
Additionally, in its role as a developer, Decron Properties Corp. has sought to improve the quality of the communities where it builds and invests. Decron made a contribution to the Loyola Village School in Westchester/Playa del Rey to support the renovation of their auditorium. The company also contributed excess land at a retail property in Van Nuys, CA to the City of Los Angeles, which now serves as the headquarters for the Los Angeles Police Department’s San Fernando Valley Traffic Bureau.
As a sign of Decron's commitment to improving and strengthening communities, residents of the Westcheser/Playa del Rey area voted Decron Properties a Favorite Property Management company in its reader suvery.
I have been working at Decron Properties full-time (More than a year)
Great culture and growth opportunities!
None that I can think of!
I applied in-person. I interviewed at Decron Properties (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2017.
Not pleasant at all. Attended Decron Job Fair, only people they were looking for were Leasing Agents, even though they advertised many more. Leasing Agents work Saturdays and Sundays and their salary is based on commissions.
