Columbia Property Management is a small rental management company located in Washington, DC. We provide white glove care to landlords with quality rental properties (single-family dwellings or apartment buildings up to 4 units). Our specialty is providing highly personal and caring service to our clients. We professionally manage our client’s rental assets to help them create long-term wealth through owning rental real estate.

We are growing and currently seeking a Single Family Property Manager who will manage our clients’ small rental businesses. The volume of work for each client depends on the number of rental units they own and the condition of the property. The incumbent will be a key part of the PM Team to cover all aspects of managing a business including proactive communications and task management.

This position calls for a highly organized individual with superior time management skills. The job requires a basic to moderate understanding of physical structures of residential buildings and mechanical systems as well as maintenance protocols. This role is ideal for someone with some property manager experience who wants to grow their expertise and advance within the company. It requires a unique combination of people skills, undying support for clients and tenants, and extreme attention to details.

The ideal candidate is dynamic, inquisitive, and collegial. We are looking for someone who is energetic with a client-service oriented attitude and the ability to exercise good judgement in order to effectively resolve all rental management issues. This is a full-time, exempt, management position with potential to grow and advance as a property manager.

Essential duties include all aspects of managing client and tenant communications and requests, maintenance and inspections at the properties, working with vendors and internal resources to maintain and repair properties, and marketing and filling vacancies. This role will require rental showings and duties outside of the office; therefore, you must have access to a reliable vehicle to travel locally to multiple sites.
