We were relocating from Northern Virginia to California because of work earlier this year, and we needed to find a good property management company for our single family house in Northern Virginia. My wife did extensive research online, and interviewed more than five property management companies in the area. During the process we found that Mars Hill Realty stands out with their methodology, responsiveness and profressionalism. So far, we could not be happier with our decision to hire Mars Hill Realty. The owner Edward, service manager Justin, and other employees are all responsive, professional, and hard-working. The marketing team did a fantastic job to advertise and promote our property. Edward and Justin worked diligently to find good quality tenant for us. As a preventative maintenance measure, Edward also gave us great suggestions regarding easy repairs that can prevent future problems. Suddenly becoming a landlord is not easy, Edward and his team give us a lot of guidance along the way which makes this landlord experience quite pleasant. We highly appreciate it. In addition, after interacting with Edward and his team, their integraty and work ethics impresses us as well. It is absolutely wonderful to work with Mars Hill Realty. Knowing our property is in good hands gives us peace of mind while we are thousands of miles away on the west coast.

Real Property Management Pros is excellent. As a real estate agent with 17 years experience, I regularly interact with local property management firms on behalf of my landlords and rental clients. Management Pros has consistently impressed me as being professional and approachable, from top to bottom. They are extremely competent regarding the legal aspects of leasing and have a smooth, easy-to-use, easy-to-understand tenant portal for making online rental payments or maintenance requests. Marc, in the leasing department, is always honest, quick to answer questions and get paperwork resolved. Mary, in the service department, really cares about the tenant and gets the job done accurately, transparently, and conveniently. Selina, in business development, is passionate about helping real estate agents and landlords develop their business through partnership. I will continue to highly recommend Real Property Management Pros to everyone who needs their services!

I'm very satisfied and have recommended Atlas Lane to other investors.

Sherry Williams, owner of Blue Sky Realty, LLC is my property manager for apt. rentals in Northwest Baltimore MD. I was very much impressed with her property management services. Blue Sky Realty, LLC, advertised my property on social networks, local news papers, and the internet. Ms. Williams is very thorough with her business practices of securing applicants that are suited for the property as well as help the applicants secure a property that will meet their needs. She definitely goes above and beyond with the accountability of monthly financial statements, the 120 day rental inspection to see personally, if the property is in good condition, and if there are any concerns from the tenant(s) that needs to be addressed. If there are any concerns, we can set-up a meeting to discuss the matter and resolve it. Ms. Williams always encourages me to call to let her know of my issues. Ms. Williams and I have a mutual respect for one another. After working together two years, we are able to remedy any situation. Ms. Williams has taken a load of headaches and extra responsibilities off my shoulders.

I have a 2 bd, 2 ba condo that I was renting out. I originally hired one property management company to list my place, but after 2 months and 0 showings, I fired them and hired Real Property Management. Within 2 weeks, they had several showings and a lease signed for my place! Awesome work!

As multiple property owner, it is crucial that I can depend on my property management company to help me effectively manage my property and maximize my investment. Over the years, I have encountered several unsuccessful property management companies and had to deal with many problems. Since partnering with Potomac, I have regained my sense of trust and appreciation for the management services that you have provided.

This was my first time using a management company or even renting my property. I researched 3 other companies and the 1 thing that really stood out for me was that Thomas said he always answers his phone even though I will be in Germany and the time difference. Reading other reviews and his timely matter in getting back with his tenants and any issues that they have had was a big plus. Everything has been going very smoothly with the showing and renting of my property. I would highly recommend.

Renee was very accommodating I was in a time crunch to move and she made sure that I was able to see and apply for the place and get approved in a very short time. She was very responsive to texts and extended her help even after I had gotten my keys. I feel like I am in good hands now after a horrible housing experience I encountered at my last place.

About

Realty Group Property Management is a professional, full-service company that specializes in the management and leasing of residential homes, town homes, and condominiums. Our office is located in Gaithersburg, MD and our service area is Montgomery County. Our goal is to protect, maintain and promote the value of your property. RGPM has been in business for over 30 years, and our professionally qualified managers are current with the newest trends in the rental market and stay apprised of all facets of the constantly evolving local codes, state and federal laws, license requirements, and regulations. Maximize Your Rental Income We perform a detailed, comprehensive rental market analysis, which assures you that the price we recommend for your property is competitive and that it will obtain the maximum yield from your investment. Preparation of Property Before putting your home on the market, we will inspect the property and make recommendations on any improvements that would enhance the value as well as the marketability of your home. Not only does the home need to meet certain housing standards, but also a home in good condition will attract quality tenants that will appreciate your home and consequently leave it in good condition when they vacate. We are capable of providing renovating or remodeling services on request. Rent Collection Procedure Realty Group Property Management (RGPM) collects the rental payments from your tenant. Funds are electronically deposited into your account as we receive them. Tenants can even pay their rent online. You can view your monthly statements through our online owners portal. If a tenant becomes delinquent, we follow a strict procedure, which includes personal contact with the tenant, legal notice of contract breach, and ultimately filing for a court hearing to gain back possession of the property. If it becomes clear that the tenant is unable or unwilling to pay the rent, we get them out of your home as quickly as the law permits so that we may find a new tenant and restore the income stream. Property Inspections We stay fully focused on maintaining the overall condition of your property to keep the property value current with the market. At the beginning of each new tenancy, a comprehensive written report is completed which provides RGPM and the tenants with a documented summary of the condition of your home. The tenants are instructed, as required in the lease, to report to RGPM, any other problems within two weeks of occupancy. We then contact the homeowners association, if applicable, to inform them that we are managing the property so that they can report to us any violations or changes in community rules and regulations. We also ask our vendors who respond to our maintenance requests, to report anything during their visit at the property that may require attention or further investigation. About six months before the lease expiration, we conduct a cursory inspection to assess the condition of the property so that we can determine what work may be necessary to re-market the property. Finally, after the tenant vacates, we do another detailed inspection to determine if there are any damages that the tenant is responsible for. This schedule ensures the continued marketability of your property and keeps you apprised of its condition. Maintenance and Repairs Our experience has taught us that owners want their properties maintained, but want to make sure the repair is justifiable. Naturally, we have to perform a balancing act between the owner's interest and the tenant's demands. We make every effort to prevent small problems from becoming bigger ones. Our prompt response to any problems that may arise keeps tenants happy and encourages them to inform us of these problems in a timely manner. Our standard management agreement includes emergency service consent as well as authorization of non-emergency repairs up to $350. For repairs estimated to cost more than $350, no work is initiated without your express approval. Our vendors are licensed, bonded and insured. In addition, the volume of work we provide them assures us of priority response and very competitive prices. 24-Hour Emergency Service After hours, tenants are instructed to leave their message on a special voice mailbox. Our computerized phone system will page our on-call manager. This system is available 24-hours-a-day, 365-days-a-year. We use good judgment and restraint because not every tenant request needs immediate attention. One of the most effective techniques we employ is a common sense approach. Many tenants can (and are willing to) resolve their problems with just a little guidance. Often times, we can have the situation resolved with a phone call, eliminating any inconvenience to the tenants and at no cost to the owner. Otherwise, we call on our vendors to repair the service request. Accounting Services As rental payments are received, we immediately deposit the funds into your Property Management account. From this account, all disbursements are made. If you desire, and at no extra charge to you, we will make any or all recurring payments for you such as your HOA or condo fee, insurance, service contracts, etc. Your proceeds will then be electronically deposited to your personal bank account. On a monthly basis, you will be notified by email that your statement is ready to be viewed online. Security deposit accounting is also handled under our property management program. Year-end statements and IRS 1099 reporting are provided as well. Ensure Legal Compliance To protect you and your property, we will make sure that your property complies with all legal requirements for rental purposes. For example, in the state of Maryland, there are Lead Paint requirements pertaining to rentals and very specific laws on security deposits. In Montgomery County, there are rental licensing requirements as well as landlord-tenant regulations. Tenant Screening Once an application is received, the important work begins. We believe that selecting the right tenant can eliminate most future problems and helps to ensure a great rental experience for both you and the tenant. There are several pieces of information that we gather in order to create a profile of all applicants for your property. These include verification of employment, landlord references, a current credit report (which includes criminal back ground check, evictions, FICO score and public record search) and an analysis of their income to debt ratio. We thoroughly review the data and present it to you, along with our recommendations, you make the final decision. Document Preparation Once the application is approved, a lease is prepared on a form meeting the requirements of the particular jurisdiction where the property is located. State of Maryland required lead paint pamphlets and any other special addendums are provided as well. In addition, a comprehensive Move-In package is prepared with important tenant information. We then meet with the tenants in our office and fully explain the lease and all other pertinent information. Once the lease is signed and all monies collected, we're ready to hand over the keys!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a property management company do?

Property management companies manage the rental of residential homes, apartments, condos, commercial spaces and retail spaces. Property managers can oversee just a single unit or many properties, whether those sites are inhabited full-time or are vacation rentals. A property management company helps a property owner or landlord find tenants; collects rent; takes care of accounting, property maintenance and repairs; handles on-site management; and manages vacation rental check-in and checkout tasks. Although many property owners or landlords successfully manage their own rental real estate, a property management company can help you handle tenant issues and maintenance problems, especially if you are not located in the same city or state. Most property management companies deal with tenants directly, and their tasks include:

  • Marketing the rental property
  • Collecting rent
  • Handling repair problems
  • Responding to tenant complaints
  • Evicting tenants  

A property management company may be a good choice for property owners who have several investment properties, live far away from the rental property, or don’t have time for hands-on management.

Why is property management important?

A property management company can be a landlord’s greatest asset. As a neutral third party, the property manager handles the day-to-day operations of a real estate investment, from a single vacation home to a large apartment building or several rental properties. A property management company can be especially helpful to landlords who own several units and can’t manage each of them individually, or those who live too far from their investment properties to meet with renters and oversee maintenance. Property management is particularly important if your rentals are part of an affordable housing program. To receive financial assistance from the government, the landlord must comply with a complicated set of rules; property management companies should have both experience and expertise in complying with the rules specific to each housing program.

Do property managers need to be licensed?

The licensing requirements for property managers vary from state to state, but many states require property managers to have a real estate broker’s license and in some cases be a legal resident of a state. Property management may not be specified in a state real estate statute, but according to the Institute of Real Estate Management their activities may include advertising the availability of a rental property, discussing a property management agreement with an owner, negotiating leases, showing a rental property and collecting rents.
