We keep you in the loop and always obtain approval for large expenses, but we take care of minor things so that you don’t need to sweat the small stuff. Our communications are direct and honest.

In the end, it is about creating long term wealth for you and your family and we are proud to be partners with our clients to help them achieve their goals.

I love working withColumbia Property Management. The service has been amazing. I am a super busy business owner and don’t have the time for the day-to-day tenant calls and knowing that this process is taken care of makes me feel very supported.

Communication is very inconsistent. Both in terms of actually replying and in the type of response we receive.
replied on Jul 7, 2020:
Thank you for the review and the honest feedback. We are interviewing to hire more staff at present so that the ratio of people to requests is more balanced to insure a better response time and more better consistency in responses with one point of contact.

Overall, I found CPM staff and the onsite manager in Swarthmore Condo extremely professional, kind, engaged and helpful. They seem to have everything under control at all times. I do recommend CPM and this apartment, especially due to its proximity to the Potomac Walking Path, the Mall and Georgetown, it is affordable and right in the middle of Foggy Bottom - fabulous location! Thank you for everything.

Scott was wonderful aiding me in my move in date while we were in the beginning of the pandemic. I love his quality of commitment exhibited by him. Also, Susie was on top of her game as well, helping with the communications navigated and facilitating the administrations on her end.

Fix was quick and seems to have held (it was some sort of clogged drain in HVAC unit). Response time was reasonable but we didn’t know what was going on for several days while nothing happened and no news on the website. Communication could have been better but no big deal. I’m a renter, but if I’m an owner I’d want any problem involving a water leak to be addressed ASAP.
replied on Jul 7, 2020:
We do train our staff to ensure that we keep our residents in the loop as to progress and what is happening with their maintenance requests. It seems we could have done better sharing that with you on this one despite all of the work being done in the background. Thank you for the review and your honest feedback.

It was strange to be handed over to a new property management company with no notice from the landlord, and no contact from the previous property manager. However, Teasa and Scott handled my unit - and various problems in it - with professionalism and care. I am grateful for their friendliness and ability to be reached quickly at various times. Big thanks to Teasa for handling my move-out so efficiently. Thanks!

The team at Columbia Property Management is very easy to work with and have great communication. Teasa took time to walk us through things and answer any questions, and Scott went out of his way to meet us to drop off our security deposit. We are grateful to be working with them at our new rental!

Positive: Professionalism Scott and co were supportive of myself and my housemates. Their properties are well managed, and he’s been very accommodating in an unusual circumstance. After renting various apartments and houses over time, I can say CPM is a top tier organization.
