Columbia Rental Property Management Company

We are based in Ellicott City, and we provide rental property management services throughout Howard County. Many of our team members are licensed REALTORS, and we are proud to be members of the Howard County Association of REALTORS.

Columbia is a strategic place in Maryland to own an investment property. Our landlord services are comprehensive, and your tenants will certainly enjoy the tenant services we offer.

Columbia Property Rental Management Services

First, we start with preparing your property for rent. Of course, this includes passing the required Howard County inspections.

Next, once your property is ready to rent, we help with tenant placement. Our leasing agent handles the showings, applications, and tenant screening. Then our agent takes care of the lease preparation and the move-in walkthrough.

After a tenant is placed, Peace of Mind Property Management will handle monthly rent collection. So, you don’t have to worry about late or missing payments.

In addition, we provide ongoing management services for residential properties in Columbia. Most importantly, this means we handle all the routine maintenance and emergency repairs. (We take the 2 a.m. phone calls, not you!)

But what if the tenant is not paying or taking care of your property? Then we will make sure the proper filings are done in court. And we will handle any evictions as needed. We have an attorney on retainer who extends discounted pricing to our clients.
