  • Peabody residential managed our home for three years while we were on an assignment abroad. Owning a house can be the most stressful thing while being overseas. Things break, tenants need immediate attention (especially if you are lucky to have excellent tenants you want to keep) and the occasional inspection gives peace of mind. On top there's keeping track of the paperwork for the IRS. Peabody has been invaluable to our mental health during this time. They managed the relationship with the tenant with absolute professionalism. Issues requiring immediate attention were addressed in a professional way, for anything else we would get an estimate with pictures of the issues and recommendations for resolution. Peabody would help us managing the contractors including exploring options and getting additional quotes if needed. They did annual inspections that were thoroughly documented and had recommendations for maintenance. Come tax time, we'd get itemized lists of expenditures and the relevant forms which made taking care of taxes relatively straight forward and helped making sure we were able to claim all the expenses. Highly recommended.

  • My name is Andrew Mcdougal, I am writing to you regarding My experience at a transitional home called Federal City Recovery located in SE Washington D.C, under the support of Ms. Ingrid Mahogany The purpose of the housing program is to provide temporary (6 months) housing to displaced and homeless persons that are working and can save money into an escrow account, I moved into the housing program at FCR in august 2016 at resident 2606 Bowen Road S.E Wash DC, I started paying in to my escrow every 2 weeks, I work part time at Safeway making less than 20 hours a week And I get paid every Friday ,when I moved in I asked Ms, Mahogany may I pay my escrow every 2 weeks Instead of every Friday because I don’t make enough in one week to pay escrow plus my other expenses, at first she replied “Yes” than a month later she retracted and said “you get paid by Safeway every Friday so you should pay escrow every Friday ,not every 2 weeks” I tried to explain to her it would have been very difficult for me to pay my escrow every Friday ,Im enrolled in school full time Monday thrue Friday for construction welding ,HVAC (heating and A.C) and training for building maintenance, plumbing and carpentry at C.E.T (Center for Employment Training),once a week I attend therapy treatments for my PTSD(Post Traumatic Stress Dissorder) buy groceries and basic necessities ,pay my monthly phone bill ,attend mandatory meetings 2 times a week with Ms. Mahogany while seeking a second job and going to work part time at Safeway , but she would cut me off and not listen to reason BY November 2016 a new policy went in effect at FCR that no one can work late anymore !!, Ms. Mahogany said everyone must make the 12mid nite curfew or be discharged from FCR ! NO MORE WORKING LATE !I told Ms. Mahogany im scheduled to work evening at my part time job at Safeway and sometimes I work late and may not be able to make it in by curfew, her only response was “THAN YOU WILL BE DISCHARGED FROM THE PROGRAM” She even told me to tell my employer to let me go home early to make curfew on time, This Jeopardize my job and my availability to work , FCR wants me to pay my escrow every week but endangers my availability to work in the process causing me to make paying my escrow more difficult On Monday December 5th Ms. Mahogany called me in to her office for a mandatory case review ,she wanted to know about my discrepancies of missing escrow payments, “you get paid every Friday you should pay escrow every Friday and not every 2 weeks “ she said,I tried to explain to her between going to school , attending therapy and looking for a second job the transportation expenses completely depletes my allowance making it difficult for me to pay escrow I asked Ms. Mahogany may I speak to the director of FCR and she said No ! ,I asked why not?

  • We recently rented a home in Washington, D.C. using Jodee Properties, a company which is run by Delwin K. Garrett. We had to terminate our lease with two months remaining on the agreement. We conveyed that we would be willing, in any way, to aid Jodee Properties in identifying a new tenant. After waiting over a week, Jodee posted the unit on Zillow and Trulia with one photo (we had taken professional photos that he refused to use) of the exterior of the home. Needless to say, no interested applicants came forward. We then decided to take ownership of the process, and posted the unit as available within our networks (with the aforementioned professional photos) and had three interested applicants within 48 hours. One of those applicants was approved and moved into the home. After completion of the final walkthrough, we were told by Jodee Properties that we had left the apartment in good condition upon exit. However, Jodee Properties remained adamant that they would not return the portion of our security deposit for the period which the new tenants had occupied the home (i.e. the rent was covered). Jodee Properties was prepared to charge two tenants currently for the same unit. It was not until we connected with lawyers to advise us of our rights and conveyed these points to Jodee Properties did they then return the balance of our security deposit. Furthermore, Jodee Properties did not follow through on several items which Del confirmed in writing his business would provide, this includes: 1. failing to bring inspection summary form to final walk-through; 2. failing to email inspection summary report post-move out; and 3. failing to respond to tenant within 45 days (D.C. Law) regarding tenant security deposit Lastly, per the VA Commonwealth State Corporation Commission, this LLC’s status is cancelled, but Del still operates it as a functioning corporation: [*** Link removed ***] Given this, Jodee Properties (Del Garrett) lacks the professionalism and rental property management expertise to serve renters in the manner that they should be. Look elsewhere!

  • Jonathan is great. We talked for quite a while even though he knew I had no immediate business to offer him. While he doesn't provide THE service I was looking for, he was very, very knowledgeable regarding DC policies, bureaucracy and the questions I should be asking of a future property manager. Clearly, he knows exactly how and when the system works and when it doesn't.

  • Better than I could have ever expected. I really wanted to sell the property, not rent it out. When I first called Tru-Haven, Rachell spent almost an hour with me. She gave me a detailed review of her process and why Tru-Haven was different from other property managers. She was able to get experts in to try to get the smell out (it didn't work completely) and she carefully vetted offers and gave me advice on pricing. When I was less than enthusiastic about the tenants that were putting in applications, she offered to sell the property and gave me excellent advice to price the property aggressively and to disclose the smoke issue. On her advice, we had multiple offers and when the first offer (all cash) fell through, she was able to negotiate an even better offer with the runner up! We closed in a little over 30 days and she was always on top on any requests. If I needed property management or to sell a property in Atlanta, I would call Rachell again in a heartbeat! Side note: I have never written an online review in my life, but the quality of service at Tru-Haven warranted a glowing review.

  • I was a prospective tenant and have found Nomadic a terrible company to deal with. We scheduled an appointment to see a location and despite their website claiming "Transparency through strong communication," they did not inform us in advance that the house was already in the process of being leased to another tenant. Also, their agent was woefully unprepared to discuss anything about the house. The agent even gave us information that was contradictory with what the ad said. I have no idea how this company has so many stars.

  • Premier Property Management has been wonderful to work with. They quickly found me a tenant for my rental, made certain any repairs were done before the tenant arrived from California, and all paperwork was handled seamlessly. I look forward to a continued relationship with this responsive company. Thanks Premier!

  • I could not have been more pleased with how well they maintained my vintage 1890 property and how they handled any and all issues raised by my sometimes demanding tenants who were accustomed to the white glove service often afforded senior diplomats. Everyone, including Tino, Monica and Erin, always responded promptly in a professional manner and never failed to give me wise counsel when needed. I had not a care in the world during my overseas stint. They earned their 5 star rating from me.
