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:
- Rather than lose a potential client, you convert your expiring sales listings to rental management
- 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
- 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.
- Earn more commission by keeping this client ready to engage with you again as they consider selling or buying a property in the future
- Develop a partnership with us and get referrals for rental or sales listings

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!
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.
