About Us


abt-imgAfter relocating from New York to South Florida, our founder, Larry Elster became president of his homeowners association. He discovered the need for professional, qualified contractors and saw the opportunity to start a full service property maintenance company. In 1977, Complete Property Maintenance, Inc. was founded. His goal was to provide quality lawn maintenance, landscaping and property maintenance to condominiums in South Florida. Larry worked hands on with his employees and on site with every customer. His mission was to be honest, offer the best service at a fair price and to retain quality employees. Complete Property Maintenance planted its roots, soon adding homeowner associations & country club communities as clients. The company branched out to include tree trimming, fertilization, pest control and irrigation services to fulfill the needs of our growing client base. Today, CPM continues to uphold the same principles and continues to grow throughout South Florida. Complete Property Maintenance…..our name says it all.
