About Columbia Property Management
Work with a Licensed Property Manager
Columbia Property Management was founded in 2012 by Scott Bloom, our owner and senior property manager. Our goal is to provide a more personal level of service to our clients. We focus on smaller landlords, professionally managing their assets so they can succeed by investing in rental real estate. We are active members in multiple professional organizations, including the National Association of Residential Property Managers (NARPM).
To make owning a rental property in the District of Columbia a painless investment because it is well managed, grows in value over time, with minimal attention or contribution from its owner(s).
Our Vision Statement
We will build a profitable property management company that is proactive and transparent, adds value to our clients’ assets, respects the residents living in our communities, and provides a challenging and rewarding work environment for its employees. We are committed to constantly making improvements on our path to achieve our Vision.
Owner and Sr. Property Manager
Marketing and Business Development
We recently moved from a lovely townhouse in Georgetown managed by CPM. We found the team responsive to our needs and very helpful throughout the term of our lease. Repairs were always completed by skilled professionals and typically completed with the highest quality materials. As a tenant, Scott always made us feel like we were valued, appreciated and welcomed. On a couple of occasions when an issue arose between us and the owner, he was a great mediator and helped us resolve things amicably and fairly for all concerned. I would be happy to lease another home managed by CPM.
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.
