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.

There are questions to ask anyone who proposes to manage your DC property for you. There are also questions to ask yourself. What you want is a professional who fills vacancies quickly with good renters, who provides accurate and timely rent payouts, and who maintains your property with prompt and cost-effective repairs, as needed. 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. Don't hesitate!

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.
