History and Services
CSP Management (formerly Cayuga Sunset Properties) is a full service property management firm which was started by Jerry Dietz in 1990. In 2023 Jerry retired and sold the business to his nephew and mentee Steven Schapiro. We presently manage apartment units in the Ithaca, Trumansburg, Dryden & Surrounding Areas. We serve a broad spectrum of the rental population (i.e. students, professionals, low income families, etc.) and are well versed in the workings of related housing agencies including the Department of Social Services, HUD’s Section 8 Program and the Ithaca City Building Department.
CSP Management has been managing rental properties in the area for over 30 years. Our expertise, friendly staff, excellent service and reputation are unequaled.
So whether you’re an individual looking for a rental home, a property owner looking for an experienced property management company, or even a homeowner looking to renovate, look no further than CSP.
We strive to find the exact fit for our tenants’ needs. Whether you’re an academic with a need for easy access to the schools or you’re a commuter that prefers a farm house in one of the quiet surrounding bedroom communities, we know the area well. If you’re looking for a secure neighborhood, public parks, walking trails or bicycle and public transit routes we know the city well too.

When we manage a property, we’re sure to manage the entire property inside and out. We offer 24 hour emergency on-call service through our maintenance staff of seven year-round full time employees.

Catching problems before they happen is all part of our commitment to keeping property owners, renters and neighbors satisfied.
