Thanks for working with Me during this Covid quarantine epidemic. As you know I’m a union stagehand and on unemployment until our industry is able to get back to theatre and events. I paid up until this month and praying this stimulus package is signed so I can catch up again.

Worked with Scott's team at two different locations. They have always been reactive, responsive, and solving problems (one of which was a recurrent flooding issue during heavy rains, which no longer happened after action was taken). And they're nice people too.

I rented an apartment with CPM for eleven months in Washington DC. Perfect location, in Foggy Bottom, near Potomac River Walking Path and a few bloks away from the White House. I moved to DC from Europe and I was extremely excited to be able to move in the apartment just two or three days after applying - so quick!. Everything was excellent during the entire stay in the apartment. Scott Blum and his team were very responsive. I was extremely happy that I was able to extend the rent for another month, as I was not able to move out at the date scheduled originally -- given that my return flight to Europe was cancelled at short notice due to Covid-19. This meant a lot to me. Overall, five stars, I recommend this company!

My stay at a CPM managed house was really smooth: paying rent is easy, maintenance fixes are quick, and the property was in good shape. My rockier experiences with CPM were in the process of applying to the house and then in getting someone approved to replace me. My application process took about 2 weeks, and my replacement's was even longer. I understand the vetting process for tenants is important, but I really think a review of the process could be helpful. It feels unnecessarily long and burdensome. Showing potential and outgoing tenants more empathy and understanding on how stressful moves are and how much planning they entail--both in your communications and by having a quicker turnaround--could go a long way.
