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.

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 a bit hesitant about listing our property/condo with a management company but we're so relieved we did! Initially, we thought we could do it ourselves on a military website but there was way too much involved (including time) & numerous frustrations so we did some research & selected Real Property Management Pros based on their reviews & favorable feedback from other customers. Noreen is our listing agent/manager & has been amazing to work with. During our first face-to-face meeting she explained the entire process in detail & took time to review each document with us. She has years of experience as a real estate agent & is a landlord herself so she offers life experiences as well & that certainly helped us make the final decision in hiring Real Property Management Pros. That was back in Sept/Oct 2016 & a great tenant was secured in Nov 2016 so the timing worked our perfect. Noreen was hoping to get a tenant in before the Holidays & she delivered! Monthly rental checks are now automatically deposited into our bank account timely & we can relax knowing our property is being managed from miles away. The company also ensures the tenant is happy which offers a very positive experience for all parties involved!

Atlas Lane has managed couple of my properties for me in Noe Valley and my experience has been very good. I was able to discover good renters and the service providers for any repairs were quick to respond and fairly priced. Atlas Lane are on another level compared to othet property management companies. I'm very satisfied and have recommended Atlas Lane to other investors.

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!

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.
