What People Are Saying About Us

Columbia Property Management Stephanie
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.

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.
