What People Are Saying About Us
Scott and his responsive team (thinking of you, Shenetta!) are on the ready, taking care of our needs and the needs of our renters. Patiently walking me through the ins-and-outs of the DC property management requirements or making themselves available for an appraisal appointment. They do the needful.
As soon as an issue, large or small, or special need comes up (they inevitably do come up), they handle it quickly and without “noise”. If I find out about an issue, it comes up in passing, months later because they have handled it quickly and responsively. How do you replace a 12 year old water heater in D.C. from New Delhi, India? I don’t know and I don’t have to know because CPM handled the entire process before it became an issue. They provide peace of mind while we are half a world away.
Payment and other services are all available on their super easy to use client portal. All paperwork is automated, transparent and secure. It’s amazing when you’re several time zones away. They communicate well, when needed, and are always a quick email away.
If you’re a foreign service family, deployed military or contractor working overseas, Columbia Property Management should be your go-to property management company. I don’t know what I would do without the support I get from the great folks at Columbia Property Management.
