About Real Property Management DC Metro

Our mission is to minimize expense and leg work for busy home and property owners. By seeing to the tasks of vacancy filling, tenant screening, rent payment, business licensing, repairs and evictions, we take a large portion of rental property management onto ourselves. This frees up our clients to seek out new properties, operate their business and live their own lives.

Unlike many property management companies, we are more than well acquainted with the neighbourhoods in which we work. Because all of our locations are independently owned and operated, we are able to customize our service to local and regional needs. Our property managers are committed to doing the best job possible for the towns they call home.

Essentially, we are your support system. Managing one property at a time is a big job, and we’re here to help anyone juggling that and more with expert rental property management.

Residential property management doesn’t just mean houses. If you also own multi-unit rental properties, talk to Real Property Management about apartment management. DC apartments are in high demand, and we help you keep everything organized, up to code and ready for occupation.

Real Property Management is the trusted leader in reliable single-family and small multi-family residences.  With over 25 years of experience and 250 plus offices nationwide, local expertise and a highly-trained responsive team, Real Property Management manages tens of thousands of properties for individuals, investors and institutions throughout the country.

Real Property Management is the local expert.

We opened our first office over 6 years ago in Howard County Maryland.  We quickly grew the office and expanded to Washington DC.  In the years that followed we shifted our main focus to managing rental in DC.  We have always managed rentals in Maryland, and have watch the Frederick Md market.  We are very excited to be able to offer our services to the great people of Frederick.

BJ McKellar – Business Development Manager

BJ has been passionate about Real Estate since the early 2000s, having invested, sold, and managed properties. He bought his first rental property, a small duplex with long-term tenants, in his early 20s and quickly learned that managing rental properties is hard work, from maintenance to evictions to rent collection. Despite having a full-time job and a young family, BJ managed his rental property himself for about a year before turning it over to a professional so he could focus on his career as a Realtor.

As an agent, BJ helped others invest in real estate and picked up more investments for himself. Now he spends 100% of his time managing other investors’ rentals, with a focus on long-term buy and hold investments, which he considers to be the best retirement plans. With years of rehabbing experience, he can fix just about anything, making him a valuable asset to any property management team.

BJ’s top priority is his clients’ bottom line, and Real Property Management’s goal is to get them as much money as possible every month. To achieve this goal, the company works tirelessly to find the best possible tenants through a rigorous application process and keep them through quarterly evaluations, maintenance, and tenant perks.

The company’s origins can be traced back to 2008/2009 when BJ experienced a significant financial loss on a fix-and-flip deal, leaving him in need of a new way to support his family. A friend introduced him to Real Property Management, which he saw as an opportunity to build a lasting business in real estate while continuing to pursue his passion for investments and working with landlords and investors.

Real Property Management manages over 400 properties in the DC/Maryland area and welcomes any questions about their services.
