Firing My Property Management Company, Need Recs for New One

7 Replies

My property management company is a complete disaster. Abysmal communication, inscrutable monthly statements, high turnover, and just a general sense that an already rudderless ship is sinking. 

I'm looking to cut ties ASAP, so if anyone has any recommendations for a property management company in DC that is well-suited to managing two single family homes in Brentwood, I'd love to hear them. I'm entertaining all suggestions at this point, but obviously I would prefer to pay less than 10% of monthly rent as a fee.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hey David, I was just speaking with another BP'er regarding my recommendation of the property manager I use, Tommy Chambers over at Chamber's Theory. He's done very well by me thus far and I'm looking to increase the # of units under his management as they come online over the next few months.

Thanks for the rec, I'll look him up and reach out!

 

I can recommend two great companies.

1. Columbia Property Management - DC Only - https://www.columbiapm.com/ . Owner is Scott Bloom and has built a really professional company.

2. Metro Home Managers - DC/MD/VA - https://metrohomemanagers.com/ . Lance Macon is the owner. Not only manages individual properties but also buildings. He manages the 4 unit condo building that I live in. Not only is his company less money than our previous management company but with much better service, better technology, etc.

I can highly recommend both companies! if you call, let them know I sent you.

I've added all 3 in my CRM and will provide feedback when I reach out.  Thanks for the reference.

Really appreciate this list, David. Thank you so much!
