Property Management Services


If you own a property, let Nest DC find a tenant to call your home their own.

We believe that great properties attract great tenants and by design, happy modern dwellers are better neighbors. Good neighbors lead to great neighborhoods and strong neighborhoods are better for our city!  That's what Nest is all about.

This is a nuanced field and doing it well requires intuition, patience, good people skills and a sense of humor. It’s also good to know how to fix a toilet in a pinch. We have that skill too. And more. 

We have invested in very sophisticated systems and a highly energetic and talented staff to ensure that we deliver outstanding results for every owner.  Every time.  From the moment we meet a client, we strive to over deliver.  Our attention to detail is our signature and we work hard to ensure both clients and tenants have a one-of-a-kind experience when working with the Nest DC team. We are not perfect but we do everything we can to deliver perfection.

Our full service property management includes:

  • Professional photos 
  • Extensive property marketing including website features, Craigslist, Facebook, Twitter, Trulia, weekly newsletters, blogs, community & professional listservs and paid advertising

For individual rental units and houses, our rates for leasing and marketing are 90% of one full month's rent. Monthly management fees are 8% per month for condo and co-op units and 10% per month for houses and row homes.  If you have multiple units, we offer a discount. Fees for property management, in most cases, are tax deductible. We also think they help you sleep better at night!  Please note, we do not offer management services in Virginia and we are no longer taking on new property in Maryland. We manage furnished rentals on a case by case basis.  

Management for associations/buildings is also offered by Nest DC. Please contact Lisa Wise to see if Nest is a fit.

We found a perfect balance between positive cash flow, and positive experiences for tenants, owners and associations. We look forward to hearing from you to schedule an appointment to tour your space and answer your questions.
