Why Use a Professional Manager?
Managing a property by yourself can be stressful and time-consuming. Professional property managers allow you to focus your time on what you enjoy doing.
Our Northern Virginia property management firm can definitely help you:
- Would you like someone else to take the maintenance and emergency calls repair calls at all hours of the day and night?
- Wouldn’t be great not to have to make those uncomfortable calls to the tenants about delinquent rents and complaints from neighbors?
- Would regular inspection reports give you peace of mind about the condition of your property?
- Wouldn’t clear, complete and accurate monthly and annual statements containing all the income and expenses about your property make your year-end tax preparation much easier than digging through boxes of receipts?
As your professional property manager, we’ll do all of this for you and so much more!
Peake Management’s mission is to provide exceptional property management services to our clients, and courteous, prompt responses to our tenants. We want to make ownership of your rental property easy for you. If you own a home in Alexandria, Arlington County, Fairfax County, Reston, Herndon, Fairfax County or Loudoun County that rents for higher than $2,000 a month, give us a call. We specialize in higher-end homes so we can provide higher-end services to our clients.
In addition to management, we can take care of the rental listing. In 2016, we teamed with Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate Premier to market our managed rental properties. Why? We were doing it inhouse for 20 years and wanted to improve the quality of marketing for our clients’ properties. BHGRE is a large, nationwide brokerage firm with excellent training and resources for the agents. Through BHGRE, our properties get far greater marketing exposure. More exposure usually means fewer days on market and better rental prices. The more exposure you get, the more likely you are to draw a qualified prospect. That’s our end goal. It’s been an excellent partnership.
Peake Management shares office space with Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate Premier, and still processes all of the applications inhouse. As professional residential property managers, we have a very consistent qualifying policy, in accordance with Fair Housing, that works! While checking references and credit cannot guarantee a perfect tenant, over 98% of our tenants pay on time. We’re proud of our track record of great tenants throughout the decades.
You’ll receive online statements on a monthly basis. They’re easy to read and provide a complete account of all money received, from and detail on all of the expenses. It’s great, you click on an expense item, and up pops a copy of the actual bill! We work to make all of the accounting very transparent to our clients. It’s all about making it easy for you.
We’re always looking to negotiate lower prices on standard repair items and service contracts, while still maintaining a high quality of service. We firmly believe that you can only maintain the value of your property, and the rentability, through regular maintenance and upkeep. The goal is to be a good steward of your funds and suggest necessary repairs wisely. That’s why we are still the top-rated property management companies in Northern Virginia!
