Best Baltimore Property Managers

I am often asked about property managers in Baltimore. Good property managers are hard to find just about everywhere. Baltimore is certainly no exception. Some talk a very good game but then perform poorly. 

They saying goes "No no one will manage your property s well as you will." Well that is not necessarily true. My partner and I are not very good property managers. We have too much on our plate to do the job as effectively as we should. So while we have not yet moved to outsource property management, when we do I suspect it will be one of the people below.

Are the Mangers below really the best? Honestly I don't know. They are all people who I know and most consider as friends.

  1. I can't thank you enough for this information! I do want to build a business relationship and get into doing some flips in the near future. Which would you suggest?


  2. Hey Ned thank you for this.  I know I am a couple of years late and new to this but if you had to recommend the best baltimore property manager in the lower income/section 8 areas who would you suggest?


    1. @Jeffrey Castellano I believe all of those mentioned will do section 8 rentals. Which ones would do it in lower end neighborhoods I am not sure, you just have to make some calls. 

      My gut tells me Seth Sherman may be the best choice for your situation. All of these people know me  so you can mention my name if that helps.


      1. Hi! Also late to this article as recently have been having issues with my property purchased from ABC Capital and desperately need to find a new property manager. Do you have the contact info for Seth Sherman? Is he still in property management? His Biggerpockets profile you linked is no longer active and says "account closed". So far I reached out to PropertyWize. Thanks for the recommendations! 


  3. Ned, thanks so much for this info! Question: would you recommend different folks on this list for Class A/B vs C/D management in Baltimore? It looks like some of the folks on your list have different specialty areas when it comes to their services (construction, buyers agent, experience navigating city regs, etc) that could be more or less beneficial depending on the circumstance.

    I am going to be a first time landlord, converting my primary residence in Canton, which was renovated in 2012 (call it a low end class A or high end class B). I want someone who is going to both reduce my hassle and educate me a bit on the business. Potentially also helping me grow my portfolio.  Thanks for any thoughts!


    1. First of all anything in Canton would be a A rental in Baltimore as far as I am concerned.. I wouldn't even consider Canton a rental neighborhood.

      Most property managers would be happy to manage a unit in Canton. Many won't do lower end neighborhood though. I don't have a specific recommendation who would be best for that.


  4. Ned:  Who would you recommend for an apartment complex of 30-50 units?  Thanks!


    1. @Ned Carey Who would you recommend for an apartment complex of 30-50 units? Thanks!


    2. Sorry I don't have a specific recommendation for that size building. 


  5. @Ned CareyThis is the best information I was looking for. Much appreciated. Happy new year.


    1. Mohammed, you are welcome


  6. Ned,

    If you had to rank 1 as the best, who would it be?  (Without degrading the others on this list, of course.)


    1. @Ramsin Jacob Ha, I should pay more attention. I just saw you comment now.  I currently work with Michelle Yang of PropertyWize. I would probably try Joe Haney next.


  7. Thanks for this info Ned, helpful indeed


  8. Thanks @Ned Carey! I'm in the process of looking for a PM. This is extremely helpful. 


  9. Nice list Ned.  I spent some time in 2014 and early 2015 looking for a PM in the Baltimore area.  Tough process, many wanted to be what amounted to a free lance employees or just didn't have good references.
    I've asked every buy and hold/landlord I've met at BWI.  I haven't had any that would recommend one.  I know not a scientific sample.  <Grin>
    I ended up buying in another area.
    I'll certainly keep this list if I come back to that area.  Thanks


  10. Thanks for this post Ned.  Great info.


  11. We have had good luck with Bay Management.


  12. This information is absolutely priceless!


  13. Thanks Ned.  You are always a great help!


    1. Thanks for reading Nyala


  14. Great post - thanks Ned!! I wish I had this months ago- I wasted a ton of time looking for a property manager and this wouldve saved me a ton of time. I'll keep in handy just in case my current guy doesnt work out.
