After being unhappy with our former property management company for our townhouse in Sterling, Virginia, my wife and I started to search online for other options. We read some of Edward’s positive reviews and decided to send him a quick email detailing our situation. Within only a few hours (on Easter weekend while he was out of state on vacation, no less), Edward called to express his interest and desire to manage our property, promising to “do it right”. We instantly had a positive feeling and decided to retain his services. We couldn’t be happier with the decision. Unlike our previous managers, Edward has proven to be reliable, ultra-responsive via both email and phone during all hours of the day, professional, and courteous. He and his assistant Yonas took amazing pictures of our house, posted the property to over a dozen real estate websites, and had secured tenants within only THREE days on the market. Even one of the neighbors felt compelled to email us to highlight the sudden increase of interested tenants due to Edward’s marketing. With the above in mind, we feel blessed that we stumbled across Edward and his company and would absolutely recommend Mars Hill Realty to any prospective clients.

Dennis is the first contractor I have worked with that actually called me back. He is very prompt and very professional. His crew was very respectful of my property and cleaned up the job site at the end of each day. Eugene is one of the best carpenters I have had the pleasure to work with and the deck he built for us is the envy of the neighborhood.

I hired Rivera and Sons to reshingle a roof at one of my rental properties. They did an outstanding job with all facets related to project management, timing and completion. Very easy to communicate to, explained the caveats, and honored customer integrity during the entirety of the job--in other words, they did not try any bait and switch tactics. I will keep them in my contacts for future jobs.

Matt's work has been excellent. He has done kitchen flooring as well as a bathroom for us, and will be doing another bathroom, kitchen backsplash, and fireplace surround for our house as well as some work on a rental property. He shows up on time, every day that he says he will be there (a rarity in contracting) and works hard. I couldn't be happier with the finished product. We will never use anyone else for tiling and are recommending to our family and friends.

Remberto, came promptly to assess the proposed work, gave a fine estimate - which was competitive (and not the lowest of all estimates that we solicited). We hired him/his company to lay tile in our new sunroom, and paint the exterior of our large brick/wood siding house in Alexandria. He handled the job very professionally, he communicated well - explaining the details of work, recommended how to make the job even better. We provided the tile and the paint. The work itself was excellent, completed on time, along with another worker in his company. Both the painting job and the tiling job was well cleaned up when finished. And, we already have plans to hire him again for other house renovation project, as we were quite satisfied with the whole process of his work.

VIP Steemer was excellent in their customer service from the first contact with them. They showed up on a holiday as it was December 23 when the flood happened in our home. They responded the same night after hours and began water restoration services immediately. They were friendly, fast and continued to come back daily until the work was completed. They sent in ladies to clean up the mud left from the water damage after the rooms were dry and they had begun the removal of damaged drywall and floorboards. They were there to help us and jumped in to do the work when our insurance company left us hanging for days and were not willing to send out contractors to begin the process of restoration for days on end due to it being the holiday season between Christmas and New Years. We called VIP Steemer after the initial night of cleanup and found out they could handle the complete process immediately and contracted with them to do the entire job from start to finish. They worked with us on inventory of our damaged and salvaged household goods for the insurance company claim, packaging and storage in a facility in order for the restoration process to begin to restore our house for the contracting portion of the work. It was a seamless process and they were careful to take excellent care of all our goods as if it were their own. Our items were completely safe with them. Julian Iwundu worked with us and developed a relationship with us throughout the entire process keeping us abreast of the progress and inquiring on our satisfaction. If something was not to our liking during the contractor phase, they went out of their way to fix it immediately. Julian Iwundu walked us through how to send our insurance check to the mortgage company to get it signed off so we could get it back to sign it and turn it over to his company when the work was finally completed and was very patient in the process (homeowners may not know that this occurs when there are damages to your property on an insurance claim when you have a mortgage with a large claim). They even brought everything back in excellent condition from the storage facility when the work was completed. We could not be more pleased with the entire job from start to finish. We were sad to see them go when everything was done that is how happy we were to have them around during the time they spent working on our home. We will definitely contact them again if we need any recovery, cleaning, contractor or moving services because of the level of trust they inspired in us.

Initially my reason for contacting Deck Professionals (DP) was to have a patio installed but because of the size of the patio and materials I wanted, I was unable to afford the patio at this time. However, after sitting with the salesperson who came out, we were able to decide on having a deck constructed/installed at a very reasonable cost. Unfortunately, the staff constructing the deck did not speak English and therefore, there was little to no communication which resulted in some problems which were not resolved even after contacting DP with my concern. My garage door which I opened with a remote so workers could store tools or supplies is apparently broken because the workers some how pulled the door down without the remote and now the garage door does not open. The workers told their supervisor they did not close the door, but there was no one in my home except me. At the end of the day, when I went out to check on the guys they were gone and the garage door was down. I attempted to use the remote to open the garage door but it did not budge. I contacted DP on two occasions regarding my concerns. They never sent anyone out to investigate the issue and the staff supervisor never came by to even inspect the deck after it was completed. I felt if he came by I could point out some minor issues I had with the deck as well as discuss the garage door and come to some resolution. While I have homeowner's insurance I do have to pay a deductible and I explained this to DP but have received no response or assistance. I am not mechanically inclined and thought maybe the issue with the garage door could be something minor and possibly the supervisor could correct the problem but he never contacted me. The deck looks great and I have received several compliments. My four issues: 1) Non English speaking staff working and I was unable to communicate with them. 2) Garage door broken by staff, they denied breaking or using the door. No assistance or corrective action taken to resolve the issue or satisfy me as a customer. 3) Supervisor for staff came to my property on one occasion which was to initially bring staff to discuss the location of the deck to be installed. 4) Once deck was completed "NO ONE" came out to do a final inspection of the deck or to formally speak with me with regard to my broken garage door. I honored my contract and paid the entire cost of the deck. However, DP did not ensure the Supervisor came out to investigate my concern with my garage door or to perform an inspection of the deck. I can only say if you do not speak Spanish, you should request that someone speaking English fluently be onsite at all times because none of the workers could communicate with me. I actually used an online translator to instruct the workers to use the side door of the garage.

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.

What is a general contractor?

When starting a home remodel or new construction project, you will probably hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to take a set of building plans and construct them as outlined. The general contractor may help perform the day-to-day building, or they may just hire workers and oversee all the work activities. In either case, the job of the general contractor is to see that your project gets built.

When you have a building project, ask for bids from various contractors. The bids tell you how much each will charge and what their scope of work will be. Once you have selected a bid, you sign a contract with that general contractor outlining the specifics of the project and the milestones during the project when they will receive payment installments. Once the contract is official, the general contractor will bring in their crew to begin construction. The contractor will manage the workers and subcontractors (anyone who doesn’t work directly for their company but that they need to outsource, like a marble installation pro), order all the materials, obtain work permits, and confirm that all the workers and subcontractors are completing their projects as planned. They typically handle all the payments to the workers and subcontractors, and send you invoice. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.  If you are organized and competent to oversee construction projects, and are able to make sure everything is being built properly and meeting code, it’s possible you can be your own general contractor.  

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.

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.

What do general contractors charge?

If you’re doing a home remodel, building a new home or embarking on a commercial building project, you’ll hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to oversee and execute construction projects. Each construction project is unique; even two duplicate homes built on lots next door to each other could have different construction costs due to factors like different excavation costs when building the foundation. Since each project is unique, many general contractors make bids on potential construction projects. These bids can then break down to a per square foot cost that encompasses the labor of all the workers needed for the job, materials, the scope of work, and any equipment needed. Materials and finishes make a major difference in your cost per square foot. For example, choosing standard kitchen tiles at $3 per square foot will result in a lower total project cost than imported marble tiles that cost $63 per square foot. Where you live will also affect how much general contractors charge, as labor and the cost to do business can cost less in many regions than in high-cost areas like New York or San Francisco. Here are some examples of average costs general contractors typically charge in various regions:

  • Home addition in San Francisco: $250-$270 per square foot.
  • New home construction in Knoxville, Tennessee: $100-$200 per square foot.
  • Kitchen remodel in Tennessee: $40-$80 per square foot, depending on finishes.
  • Bathroom remodel in Vancouver, Washington: $110-$170 per square foot.
