July 15, 2017 After searching for a new property management company for the last two years I stumbled upon Thumbtack and Lisa Wright of Maryland Property Rentals (MPR). Our initial contact was very refreshing. After explaining my situation Lisa assured me that she was up to the challenge and willingly accepted the job. I have to admit, MPR has defied all my expectations; that being, Lisa minimized the number of hurdles involved in taking over the management of my property, and has been most impressive. Considering my past experience with another property management company, MPR has shown nothing less than professionalism and seeing that every little detail is satisfactorily taken care of. I’m convinced that I made the right choice hiring Lisa and her team. WCA
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.
PMI is one of the best property management companies one can work with. My tenants are happier due to their service, not more vacant units.
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!
East Coast Real Estate Group is managing all of my rental properties and they are the best. Their professionalism and attention to detail is excellent. I would highly recommend them to everyone, they rock!
After a meeting with Shawn we chose this company to manage our property. We look forward to working with them.
Experienced professionals who know all the little details about managing a rental property! Thank you!!
I consider ManageBaltimore to be consummate professionals. Challenged with finding a new property management company to renovate an older property and get it rent ready in the shortest amount of time possible, I was blessed to come across a recommendation for ManageBaltimore. Providing value based estimates and quality workmanship, the professionals at ManageBaltimore were responsive to my needs and tight timeline. My property looks wonderful and has received numerous rent applications. I can't praise ManageBaltimore enough for their outstanding work.
From the first phone conversation, I connected with Hezeldee. Her customer service is one to write home about and her responsiveness is very efficient. I am confident that her support and management of my property would remain consistent.
I am very pleased with the service of this property management company. Great communication, timely repairs that are considerate of my budget and honest dealings with me. I wish that I had Dawson William Properties, LLC a long time ago but now that I use their service I will be with them forever.
I came into contact with Three Pillars from a co-worker. Because of work, I had to rent my townhome out for 18 homes. It was vacant for less than 2 weeks before a tenant was moving in. I never had any issues with my service. Towards the end of my service with this company, they began using an app that I could login and see details of my properties. They don't charge for inspections throughout the year. The price is unbeatable. I recommend them to anyone I know going PCS or TDY- as I didn't have to worry about my home while away. 5 stars from me.
Nesbitt is a family business. They are very good about communicating with the owners of their rental properties. This is not something I could say about other property management companies. Will handled all the maintenance end of the business and arranged cleaners, painters, etc.
I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for a job well done. Both of you have always exceeded our expectations with our rental properties. From managing, leasing, taking care of repairs etc, you both have been fantastic!
Rachel and Frank know their business and have always been professional and very prompt.
We had good experience entrusting our home property management with Insider property management.
My home needed some renovations before I could rent it out. They tried to reduce costs for me when possible, so I could stay within my budget. They were able to renovate my home at a cost that I could not find anywhere else and I am extremely happy with the work. They were very professional and responsive, providing me updates throughout the entire process. I am very satisfied with there service so far.
Boutique property management company focusing on landlord and tenant relationships.
I have had a great experience using Bella Property Management, LLC to rent out my current investment properties! They have been very professional to work with and always take care of things in a timely manner. I strongly recommend working with them!
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!
