Danube Properties, Inc.
In the past several years, we have focused on upgrading various apartment buildings to provide more contemporary amenities and an improved layout. Southern Cross has been a trusted advisor in that process, providing assistance with layouts, architectural and design questions, cost assessments, and pulling permits. The assistance that Southern Cross has provided has allowed us to upgrade our portfolio and increase rents dramatically.

Mission Hills United Methodist Church
I appreciate every aspect of Southern Cross’s interactions with me and our Board of Trustees: – Initial conversations to listen to our ideas of needs and scope. – Follow-up conversations on scope with varied budget options. – Clear presentation of budget and presentation of bid results. – Updates on construction to Trustees throughout the project. – Holding contractors accountable for excellent work. – Making sure the site was clean at the end of each day/week. The fact that Southern Cross did all of that on time and under budget is further testament to the value of your work for our church.

This very complicated and intricate upgrade was completed on time and on budget. With Matthew’s guidance and oversight, Mario’s amazing scheduling, supervision, and customer service, and Joe’s assistance, I can say without hesitation that I highly recommend Southern Cross Property Consultants.
Quentin C. Yates, PCAM, CCAM General Manager
First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Diego
SCPC advocated on behalf of the church with various City agencies during an arduous approval process, which was complicated by the historically significant buildings and art work on campus as well as our proximity to environmentally sensitive canyons. They delivered the project on time and on budget, the congregation loves the building and improved site, and the project has been nominated for numerous awards.

Platt/Whitelaw Architects, Inc.
Matthew serves the interests of his clients as if they were his own. He is fair and applies his knowledge, expertise, and practical experience for the best interest of any project he is working on. Of special note are Matthew’s extensive training and experience that encompass architecture, contracting, construction management, project management, and facilities management. These, combined with his high standard of professionalism and integrity, are of tremendous value to his clients.
Alison M. Whitelaw, FAIA Senior Principle
The owners are very very pleased with the end results. Mario Alesi was responsive, patient, detailed, methodical, and professional. We could not have asked for better construction project management.
John Steel, Board President
Gethsemane Lutheran Church
The best recommendation I can give is to “come and see” our Chapel. Every remodeling project has its wrinkles and conundrums. However, these were fewer because of the skill set that Southern Cross brings to the table.
Reverend Gloria Espeseth
I write to commend most highly the work of Southern Cross Property Consultants as an invaluable aid to the mission of our congregation. Truly without Matthew Boomhower and his firm, our congregation would have squandered inestimable amounts of money, time, and precious momentum as we floundered around this complicated process.
Reverend Dr. Steven J. Goodwin, Former Pastor
Canyon Haven Homeowners Association
Southern Cross Property Consultants has saved our association from making some terrible mistakes that could have cost us dearly. Matthew Boomhower stepped in as a replacement for our Construction Manager in the middle of a construction project that was on the ropes. Matthew turned the project around, righted our ship, and saw the project through to a satisfactory conclusion.
Jeff Derbes, Former Board President
Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church
Southern Cross Property Consultants have been invaluable in helping us bridge the gap between our abilities and our needs. They have assisted in strategic planning, managed outside contractors, and made referrals for on-site maintenance & repair services. They get the job done.
Reverend Richard W. Vevia, Jr.
Clairemont Lutheran Church
I am a facility manager in healthcare and work often on complex projects. I appreciate being able to rely upon a good project manager to get results. Matthew Boomhower gets results.
