Our property management services are based on the idea that you should focus on building long-term wealth real estate investments while we manage the rental relationship. We help our Washington, DC clients develop and execute strategic investment goals.

Owner Services

Rental Business License Services

Landlords in the District of Columbia are required to have a business license and to register with the Rental Accommodations Division. We have done hundreds of these for our clients and can efficiently handle this process for you so you don’t have to learn the procedures and manage the paperwork. This service can be bundled with full service property management packages, or we can do it for you separately. It’s just part of the reason we’re the most comprehensive property management company in Washington, DC.

Marketing and Leasing Services

Marketing rental property requires skill, strategy, and a thorough understanding of the local and even neighborhood markets. At Columbia Property Management, we’ll be strategic with pricing, advertise and show your rental, conduct stringent screening, manage the application process, and negotiate the best lease terms for you possible. Our service includes an in-person orientation at the property for all new tenants.

It’s another reason we’re the property management company that Washington, DC owners trust with their investments.

Ongoing Management Services

Once a tenant is placed, we’ll handle everything from rental property maintenance to property management accounting. Our team will be the point of contact if there’s an emergency repair issue, a tenant dispute, or a situation in the neighborhood. You can count on us to communicate with you and the tenants, provide detailed and transparent accounting, and save you money on any necessary repairs.

Our efficient, frequent communication is just one way that we are the most dependable property management company in Washington, DC.

A good communicator is also key.

Scott was incredibly helpful. He worked with us through all our questions about property management, rental rates, contracts, and tenants. We would recommend him without reservation if you're looking for someone to find renters or to manage your property. And we checked around and his rates are very good compared to the competition.

Communication is very inconsistent. Both in terms of actually replying and in the type of response we receive.
replied on Jul 7, 2020:
Thank you for the review and the honest feedback. We are interviewing to hire more staff at present so that the ratio of people to requests is more balanced to insure a better response time and more better consistency in responses with one point of contact.

Overall, I found CPM staff and the onsite manager in Swarthmore Condo extremely professional, kind, engaged and helpful. They seem to have everything under control at all times. I do recommend CPM and this apartment, especially due to its proximity to the Potomac Walking Path, the Mall and Georgetown, it is affordable and right in the middle of Foggy Bottom - fabulous location! Thank you for everything.

Scott was wonderful aiding me in my move in date while we were in the beginning of the pandemic. I love his quality of commitment exhibited by him. Also, Susie was on top of her game as well, helping with the communications navigated and facilitating the administrations on her end.

Fix was quick and seems to have held (it was some sort of clogged drain in HVAC unit). Response time was reasonable but we didn’t know what was going on for several days while nothing happened and no news on the website. Communication could have been better but no big deal. I’m a renter, but if I’m an owner I’d want any problem involving a water leak to be addressed ASAP.
replied on Jul 7, 2020:
We do train our staff to ensure that we keep our residents in the loop as to progress and what is happening with their maintenance requests. It seems we could have done better sharing that with you on this one despite all of the work being done in the background. Thank you for the review and your honest feedback.

It was strange to be handed over to a new property management company with no notice from the landlord, and no contact from the previous property manager. However, Teasa and Scott handled my unit - and various problems in it - with professionalism and care. I am grateful for their friendliness and ability to be reached quickly at various times. Big thanks to Teasa for handling my move-out so efficiently. Thanks!

The team at Columbia Property Management is very easy to work with and have great communication. Teasa took time to walk us through things and answer any questions, and Scott went out of his way to meet us to drop off our security deposit. We are grateful to be working with them at our new rental!

Positive: Professionalism Scott and co were supportive of myself and my housemates. Their properties are well managed, and he’s been very accommodating in an unusual circumstance. After renting various apartments and houses over time, I can say CPM is a top tier organization.
