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.

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!

CPM are excellent property managers. They react quickly to any issues and work with me to schedule work. That said, the property is well maintained by CPM so there have been very few issues

The company is initially very responsive but it often takes a VERY long period of time to actually get a workman in to fix things. It seems this is because you require multiple estimates before you actually allow the work to be done. Perhaps negotiating contracts with certain vendors for fair prices you could call without hesitation would move things along more quickly

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.
