Meet the Team
PMI Patron is designed with passive income in mind, giving you a stress-free experience knowing that your property will be profitable and cared for. PMI Patron offers the highest quality of services available and is the premier Property Management company in North Orange County.
As a high school student, Rob Sittman, owner of PMI Patron, remembered watching his parents manage their 12 rental properties while traveling on a cruise ship in the Caribbean. His parents were juggling rent collection, turnover maintenance, and a vacancy all while on vacation. Even while not traveling, they had jobs, a busy family life, and volunteered within the community. Despite all of this, they continued to manage their own rental properties without the help of a professional Property Manager.
The reason behind creating PMI Patron was to offer property owners the experience of earning passive income without having to deal with the hassle and hands-on experience of being a landlord. Since founding PMI Patron in 2018, the company has grown to manage over 150 single-family homes. The vision of PMI Patron is to manage over 1,000 single-family homes, 10,000 HOA units, and 100 Vacation rentals by the end of 2030.
Rob Sittman holds the prestigious Residential Management Professional (RMP®) designation from NARPM which sets him apart in an elite group of only 500 other property managers in the nation and only 3 in Orange County that hold this designation. This designation demonstrates a commitment to his business, career, along with a dedication to bettering the greater industry in general. Rob is also the current President of the California NARPM chapter representing thousands of California Property Managers.
PMI Patron is part of a larger franchise that has been perfecting and changing the property management industry for over 20 years. The experience PMI Patron has gained worldwide… truly reflects within their service offerings on a local level.
The key to the success of PMI Patron is not only providing prompt, friendly, and professional services to property owners and their tenants but also understanding that property owners expect their property manager to be available and easily accessible when there is a problem or question. PMI Patron will increase the value of your real estate over time, maximize income, and protect against risk.

Rich comes to us with over 35 years of customer service management experience. Rich moved to California in the 80’s to start a family owned print/design brokerage company with a niche in the motion picture industry designing and printing props. When his parents both passed in the spring of 2010 the joy and fun of that business disappeared. For the next ten years, Rich worked for a local church in Cypress managing teams and developing leaders. This fulfilled one of Rich’s desires to be a pastor. He had worked in several churches as a volunteer in the youth ministry department as a leader, youth director, youth pastor and mentor for over 25 years.
During the pandemic a lot of churches and businesses had to lay off their employees and Rich was one of these. Rich prayed that the Lord would lead him to the next chapter in his life. This is where PMI Patron and Rich met. As Rich and Rob started working together they both realized they were a wonderful fit as their hearts and business desires fit so well together.
Rich has whole heartedly joined the PMI Patron team and has been taking classes to earn his Real estate License as well as taking other certificate classes to build a strong foundation of knowledge in property management. Rich will share with you that his desire for property owners is to enjoy peaceful passive income at the same time providing our renters with a safe affordable place to live. “It feels great to provide this need for our customers”.
A couple of fun facts about Rich… He has been married to his wife Lori for 32 years and is the proud father of three children, two daughter in laws, two grandchildren and two 125 pounds Golden Retriever/St. Bernards. Rich loves to serve our community and is currently a chaplain for the Cypress Police Department. He loves to play golf, enjoys a good cigar, he has restored 6 classic Mustangs and when watching a movie will have to eat whatever he sees being enjoyed on screen.
