Real Estate Agents

Being able to offer your clients professional rental management, tenant search and screening, and other rental property services is important for your business. It helps to expand your offering, it increases your importance to your clients, and most importantly it builds loyalty. Refer your client to Columbia Property Management for questions about being a landlord, concerns about prospective rental properties, or a general sense of the local rental market. You help them to make better business decisions and they will remember you helped them.

Benefits to You:

  1. Rather than lose a potential client, you convert your expiring sales listings to rental management
  2. Keep your sales leads “warm” with a high level of service and ensure they will have a path back to you should they consider selling in the future
  3. If the property is occupied or you don’t do the rental listing we will pay you a referral bonus of one month’s management fee once your client signs with us.
  4. Earn more commission by keeping this client ready to engage with you again as they consider selling or buying a property in the future
  5. Develop a partnership with us and get referrals for rental or sales listings

At Columbia Property Management we highly value the relationships we build with real estate sales professionals because of the complimentary nature of our work. We don’t compete in the sales market and we can supplement the services you are able to provide for your clients. We recognize that a healthy partnership with other real estate professionals is key for our business to succeed.

How to Refer your Clients
Listen to your client’s needs and recommend they speak to a licensed property manager if they are considering renting their home or condominium. Investors who manage their own rental property can also benefit from a conversation with us.

Contact Columbia Property Management and let us know you’ve referred one of your valued clients to us. By giving us your client’s name, contact information, and the address of the property they are considering for rental; we can be better prepared to talk about you when they contact us.

Indicate to us if you are interested (or not) in being the leasing agent in situations your client needs to find tenants. We often partner with licensed real estate agents for rental listings and this can be another way to earn commission.

Contact your client after they have worked with us awhile to ensure they are satisfied with our services. If there is any problem please let us know and we will work hard to earn back that trust.

We will refer the client back to you when they are ready to sell!

Scott Bloom is a smart, committed and pragmatic property manager whose team I trust to make good long-term choices. I would definitely recommend Scott to anyone looking for a responsible way to manage rental properties.

I have been working with CPM as a landlord for more than 10 years. Scott and his team are exceptional and try to do their best for both landlords and tenants. My experience has been that they work hard to resolve issues, deliver value for landlords, and find ways to be caring and responsive to tenants. I would highly recommend this group if you are a landlord.

Hello, I wanted to write a review of Columbia Property Management. We have been tenants at one of their properties for the past 5 years and I have nothing but positive things to say. I will just give you a snippet of the good things that have happened. One week after our newborn was brought home our fridge would not close and seal; on a Sunday night they sent over a technician who fixed it immediately. Over the summer our air conditioner was leaking (this was during 100+ heat indices), again on a weekend, they sent a technician over who was professional and fixed our problem immediately. Every time we have had an issue or a question about our lease or what to do they have been responsive and professional. It has been such a pleasure to have been a tenant at the property and I would highly recommend this property management company!

I’ve been with Columbia Property Management for 7 years. That’s testament to the expert level of care and professionalism you can expect from CPM. 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.

CPM managed a rental property for us over the last 5 years. They have been helpful and responsive in all of our interactions with them. Scott is knowledgeable and trustworthy. We had a couple emergencies caused by tenants and in both cases CPM resolved the situation immediately, literally saving the day. We left the day to day property management to them and the place is in great shape five years later. I couldn't have been happier with them and I recommend CPM to anyone looking for rental property management.
Columbia Property Management replied on Jan 4, 2019:
Thank you, Daniel. We try to be transparent and resolve problem areas fairly and promptly.
