Chase-Berkson founded Chase Pacific Property Management in 1988, 12 years after earning her California State Real Estate license and 8 years after earning her California Real Estate Brokers license.Her original focus was on sales and listings of residential real estate, however she quickly realized that her clients needed a “one-stop shop” brokerage and added the property management division.Ms. Berkson founded the company on the concept of the “Golden Rule” which is treating others as you would want to be treated. This code of ethics and moral conduct permeates every transaction, every relationship and every situation in which Chase Pacific deals.Cheryl holds a B. A. degree from Fresno State University and an M.A. from Texas Tech University. She moved to San Diego in 1978 from Orange County and after having lived in several other states. Her interests are travel, both local and global, short term mission trips, dance, gardening, and reading. She named the company “Chase Pacific” in honor of her father who owned Chase Flower Shop in Fresno.

Donna J. Silva
Office Manager – Business Development
CA DRE #01963819
I have always thrived in a fast-paced environment; whether it was in the medical field for several years, to being an office manager for 50 agents for the number one Century 21 in San Diego County. As a partner for one of the largest private single-family residential property management companies, quick action, attention to detail and knowing the business kept you on your toes. In 1999 we sold our business and moved to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Georgia. Always having an entrepreneurial spirit, I had the pleasure and pain of creating two businesses. An espresso coffee shop/Deli and an art supply/framing business, building each from idea to fruition. And both being my passions. I genuinely love to meet people. I feel blessed knowing Cheryl for over 30 years and being a part of this amazing team.

Ryan Case
Leasing Manager
As the Leasing Manager for Chase Pacific Property Management and Real Estate Services, I have been blessed with the wonderful opportunity to work for one of the kindest people I have ever met, in Cheryl Chase-Berkson. I am happy to call Chase Pacific and the Chase Pacific team home. I was born and raised in San Diego and have lived here for most of my life. One of the best aspects of being a Leasing Manager in San Diego is working in a city I love! My years of sales experience have helped me craft my tools needed for the industry. When I’m not working, I love dining out and exploring all the diverse scenes that San Diego has to offer. I am also an avid fan of our sports franchises here, The Chargers and The Padres. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!
Susan Miller
Property Manager
Before becoming a Property Manager, she was a Mortgage Broker for over 25 years. Her “hands on” experience includes having designed and built homes including several remodels. Being an effective Property Manger requires the ability to be organized, to be able to communicate, to be able to pay attention to detail, and to be responsive to others’needs. She feels she is the “glue’ that keeps owners and tenants together for a successful partnership. Susan is a widow and mother of three sons and three grandchildren. She first moved to Rancho Bernardo in 1970.
