I hired Columbia property management to clean up a messy situation that a former property management company had left. Scott Bloom and his team stepped in and seamlessly took over the management of the house, handled cleanup and repairs, and the existing tenants with ease. I never have a moments worry with this team handling my property. They communicate well and keep me informed and up-to-date with property issues. We work together to review tenant applications so that I am aware. I feel that I am always part of the decision making team and they always supply solid advice if and when issues arise to deal with. Their property owner portal is easy to use. Everything is organized, clearly laid out, and the reports I need are easy to find. Susie Smith, my financial manager, is always a solid presence. I know she and Scott are always in communication. When I have financial questions or issues to work out I hear from Susie promptly and no questions are ever unanswered. My experience with Columbia Property Management has been excellent. I would recommend them to everyone!

Plus, the staff is consistent, professional, and courteous. Whenever a problem has arisen, Scott has handled it with even-handed professionalism to all parties' satisfaction. You're in good hands with this group.

Professional, highly responsive, and a pleasure to rent from! Columbia Property Management were professional and transparent from the first tour of the apartment, providing a smooth and responsive experience through negotiating the lease, moving in, and beyond! The digital infrastructure they have set up for managing payments and work requests is easy-to-use, reliable, and fast; initial replies to work requests for our apartment always came back in 24 hours or less! When all else fails, their office team is prompt and friendly in responding to emails.
