We take the utmost care of your property so you can trade the hassles of managing, for the rewards of ownership.
Curious about what you can make from renting your property? We begin our partnership by preparing and pricing your property for rent. You’ll receive a detailed market analysis, recommending the best possible rental price based on current market conditions, the amenities of the property, and its current condition. With our knowledge of the Washington, D.C. rental market and our knack for competitive pricing, you can be confident that you’re getting the most out of your property.
We design customized advertising and marketing campaigns featuring professional, wide-angle photographs that highlight your property’s strengths and amenities. We allow you to expose your property to the largest pool of qualified tenants possible, with an advertisement published on 13 different targeted websites.
We use the most advanced marketing tools and scheduling automation to respond to tenants quickly. From the time you say go, we work quickly to get the marketing campaign up and running.
Through an in-depth screening process using TransUnion, we help you find qualified, responsible tenants to ensure a profitable and headache-free owner experience. We take care of any negotiation and lease details on your behalf, so your interests are protected at every step of the process.
Well-maintained homes lead to happier tenants and owners. Preventative maintenance is the key to maintaining long lasting relationships with our tenants and owners, just as repairs and improvements are the key to maintaining and increasing your investment’s value. If repair work is necessary, you have access to our vetted network of reliable vendors and our in-house maintenance staff. We coordinate and handle the project from start to finish – so you don’t have to.
You’ll have access to detailed move-in and move out evaluations of the property using our custom built inspection software – giving accurate and up-to-date documentation of your property’s condition.
We ensure your property is move-in ready for the next tenant – even when there’s a 24-hour window.
Stay up to date on your investment’s performance with monthly financial statements. Your statements are accessible through a secured online owner portal built on the Salesforce platform. The easy to understand online financial statements provides a clear view into income, expenses, and maintenance activity for your property all in one place.

We begin our partnership by preparing and pricing your property for rent. Gordon James Realty performs a detailed market analysis, recommending the best possible rental price based on current market conditions, the amenities of the property, and its current condition. Additionally, we may recommend repairs and improvements that would increase your return on investment. With our knowledge of the Washington, D.C. rental market and our knack for competitive pricing, we have filled vacant rental properties in as few as 5 days.
We design polished, customized advertising and marketing campaigns featuring professional, wide-angle photographs that highlight your property’s strengths and amenities. To expose your property to the largest pool of qualified tenants possible, we publish an advertisement for your property on 13 different targeted websites. We typically respond within 15 minutes to prospective tenants and schedule showings at times that are best suited for them.
Once interested tenants have seen your property, they fill out an online application. We then check the applicants’ credit histories, conduct thorough criminal background checks, perform employment verifications, and consult prior landlord references to ensure we find the most qualified tenant for your property. This entire process is facilitated by best-in-class software to guarantee speed and accuracy in our reports.
We handle the move-in and move-out process from start to finish. First, we inspect and document the property’s initial condition using photographs or video. Then, tenants complete and sign a Statement of Condition form verifying the home’s state at move-in time. When tenants move out, we conduct another inspection, document any damages tenants are liable for, and charge them for the required repairs.
Your tenants have access to their unique online account where they can view past, current, and future charges. To ensure compliance with D.C. law, after they make payments, they can print a receipt for their records.
