"Real Property Associates, and Tina Lerch in particular, has made our owning a rental property 3000 miles from “home” a breeze. We currently live in Alexandria, VA. We purchased a home in Edmonds in late 2006, with the intention of renting it for about 4 years before we would move to the West Coast.
We were looking for a reputable, active real estate property manager, since it would be difficult to deal with issues cross-continent. Our real estate agent recommended Real Property and we have been very satisfied. Tina had our house rented within 3 weeks of settlement, even though it was December and “popular wisdom” was nothing would rent over the holidays. Tina doesn’t just sit back and let popular wisdom rule. She has kept a sharp eye on issues. Fortunately, we have not had many, but she has assured that they were resolved quickly, arranging repairs on the limited occasions when we needed them. We would strongly recommend Real Property for your long-distance property management needs." Kathleen and Roger Huston
"I have owned my condo since early 2005 and had tried two different management companies before signing on with RPA, both which had been very disappointing and had caused more trouble than assistance. I was ready to give up on property management companies when a friend of mine suggested that I try RPA and I must say that you have made my life so much easier.
I have been working with Tina Lerch for quite some time now and she has been absolutely wonderful. She is always available when I need her, takes care of everything before I even get a chance to ask and she makes me feel like I am her top priority. It is extremely rare to find a company and agents who make you feel like you are their only client these days but that has truly been my experience with RPA.
In today’s economy it has become increasingly difficult to rent out units and that had caused me some worry. Tina seems just as worried as I was and worked hard to find tenants, show the unit, get the paperwork ready and signed all while keeping in constant contact and communication with my homeowner's association. These are all the things that I do not have time to do since I live in a different state, work and go to school full-time. It means the world to me to know that I have a company that takes care of all these things as good as I would have myself. I have put my complete trust into your company and could not be happier.
