Vacation rental management
I contacted Edward through Thumbtack about managing a rental property and am really glad that I did!! He and his staff did a great job in advising me about repairs, taking care of the logistics, and getting the place ready for new renters. I don't worry about anything anymore regarding the property!Mar 7, 2016Verified
I hired Edward to manage my townhouse. I needed to replace a poor performing property manager, and came across Ed's profile online. I live 3 time-zones away from the property so basically had to do everything without meeting Edward in person. After several phone conversations with Edward and many other potential PMs, I decided to go with Ed as he came across as a manager I could trust and depend on. It has been a great experience, he is a great communicator, and is very transparent throughout the process. Ed is also always available when needed. He also has a solid team that helps support the management process.Oct 20, 2015Verified
Mars Hill staff are very professional, efficient and effective. Their marketing of my rental home was excellent as they rented my home to a wonderful family in less than a week. I did not want to experience the stress of being a landlord so I decided to find a property manager that would deal with the day to day rental issues. I did a lot of research and finally decided on Mars Hill. From the start I found myself very happy with my decision. The Mars Hill staff timely communicated with me on all aspects of marketing. They also take care of everything while keeping me informed so I don't have to worry about rental issues. If you're looking for a great property management company, I highly recommend Mars Hill!!Feb 26, 2018Verified
We recently moved and had “Mars Hill” helped us to rent our old house. Edward and his team have been extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with. We were out of country when they marketed our house. We received consistent updates from Edward and his team. They emailed us statistic on the number of showings, the type of applicants and feedbacks they received from showings. The fact that I can shoot over an email to them and get a prompt response is a major plus. With the timely information, we were able to quickly adjust our strategy to promptly respond to the market and make decisions. Edward and the team helped us to identify strong applicants. They did a thorough screen on the application, including the background and credit history checks. They also interviewed the applicants to ensure their qualification. They made their recommendation based on all the facts collected and their professional expertise. They also helped us to negotiate the lease on my behalf. We now have a signed lease and are very happy with their services. We will definitely recommend Edward and his team to people who are looking for great property management.Sep 13, 2016Verified
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.Apr 22, 2016Verified
