Profesional, responsive, good value! I rented an apartment with CPM for eleven months in Washington DC. Perfect location, in Foggy Bottom, near Potomac River Walking Path and a few bloks away from the White House. I moved to DC from Europe and I was extremely excited to be able to move in the apartment just two or three days after applying - so quick!. Everything was excellent during the entire stay in the apartment. Scott Blum and his team were very responsive. I was extremely happy that I was able to extend the rent for another month, as I was not able to move out at the date scheduled originally -- given that my return flight to Europe was cancelled at short notice due to Covid-19. This meant a lot to me. Overall, five stars, I recommend this company!

I really cannot say enough good things about them. They are on the ball and very professional. I don’t feel nickel and dime’d as I have with some others and the staff is friendly and super responsive. To a point where I tell them to take their time answering a question or something like that! They’ve impressed me and I don’t get impressed easily. And as I understand it my tenants are happy too, so I can’t complain with that!

Our experience renting an apartment was easy and fun ! We got to come see the apartment the day after we put in a request, and were able to walk around and visualize the new space without feeling rushed. After renting, Scott went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and secure in our new place. The place was clean and beautiful and ready for us to move in. Everyone we have dealt with has been beyond professional and I’m so grateful for the seamless was of the whole process.

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!

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.
