Columbia Property Management has been great to rent through. They are quick to respond to emails and any service requests I put in, and my property manager has been easy to reach and helpful since I toured my unit.

They're managing a property of mine in DC and it's been a breeze for me because they handle everything. This has included some complicated and unexpected repair issues, in which they've been stellar in coordinating communications with me, tenant, building management, and contractors. Thankful for them!

Have had a good experience with CPM; our assistant property manager Greg has been super on top of repairs for our house, usually sending people same-day or within 24 hours. Straightforward system to pay rent and submit work requests as well.
