renting units is about marketing and has very little to do with “selling”.
Most renters shop rental homes through a combination of:
- the ability to work with a professional rental manager during their tenancy
- scoping out the appearance of rental residences when they inspect them
In addition to lessees finding us, Nesbitt also finds renters through:
- referrals from satisfied clients
- diplomatic networks
- State Department bulletin boards
- government organizations
And more. Our rental marketing strategy relies upon several simple formula:
- REALTORS® Advantage– Nesbitt Realty has relationships with area REALTORS® and we ourselves are REALTORS®. Not every real estate agent in Virginia state has this valuable affiliation. Our rental homes lease faster because of our access to the REALTOR® network.
- Referrals – Our award-winning real estate company regularly receives referrals from our current and past renters, friends of our lessees, and from other agents in 22312 in Alexandria.
- Rental Preparation – The intriguing properties, priced well, will not rent if they are not in right appearance. Units must show well to rent in a timely fashion . Your dilligent Nesbitt Realty real estate professional makes sure your rental abode is presented in a clean and attractive condition to catch the attention of a good, qualified renter.

If you have never had a property manager before, you are probably curious and would like to learn about the roles and functions of property managers and what type of impact having one designated to you will have on you business affairs. The scope of a property manager is wide, and a property manager strives to:
- Collect rental fees. Each sum of money received is placed in an escrow account. Funds are disbursed for the payment of bills, income to the landlord, and the property management company fees.
- Maintain accurate records of funds, receipts, and expenditures; and regularly furnish these records to respective landlords.
- Handle all matters with HOA/COA.
- Manage all tenant relations which include maintenance requests and late fee notices. Deal with a laundry list of tenant problems such as unauthorized guests, unauthorized pets, parking issues, tenant cleanliness, noise violations, neighbor complaints, and the list goes on. We also manage the process of prosecuting actions to evict tenants on an as-needed basis.
- Ensure compliance with state laws, local ordinances, licensing requirements, association rules, Fair Housing laws, insurance requirements, and IRS requirements.
- Manage and dispatch handymen when necessary.
- Inspect the property periodically: at the time of move-in, move-out, and frequently during tenancy.
Generally, money does not flow from the landlord to the property manager or from the tenant to the landlord; but it flows from the tenant to the property manager to the landlord. Fees and commissions are withheld upon collection of rental fees.
Our agreements are standardized and its duration is a one-year period; however, either party may terminate the agreement at the end of a 30-day notice.
