The thing is, most aspiring homeowners don’t need to be convinced that “now is the time to buy.” And most renters don’t really need to be told that their leases give them some time and space to save, build up credit profiles, and shop around. Read more.
“What exactly does a property manager do?” It’s a question I’m often asked by homeowners who are considering becoming landlords — especially at times when home sales are slow. In fact, I’m guessing that at some point one of your clients who is weighing selling versus leasing has asked you what a property manager does. Read more.
Rental property owners often believe that having a home warranty for their rental properties is a smart idea, but that seemingly commonsensical notion is a waste of time and money. Real estate agents should never encourage their investor clients to purchase a home warranty — and here’s why. Read more…

“My tenants want out of their lease early.” It’s one of the biggest “fear factors” for new landlords — and yet, I’ve found, it’s a problem with a simple solution. Even though a lease is a legally binding financial commitment on the part of the tenant, leases are not always enforced e

The WJD Difference
WJD Management is the best choice for property management in Northern Virginia because we are the only property management company that specializes exclusively in residential property management. We are the only licensed real estate brokerage in our area that does not have a real estate sales arm. Moreover, because we do not engage in real estate sales, 100 percent of our company’s resources are dedicated to managing the homes in our inventory. It is no secret that the other property management firms in our area typically invest minimal resources for their property managers because they believe the real money is in selling real estate as opposed to managing it. But when sales slump, these firms look to their property management activity to keep their doors open.
Foreign Service Homeowners
WJD Supports Foreign Service Homeowners
Your First Month’s Management Fee is On Us!
If you are a Foreign Service Homeowner interested in hiring the best professional property management company in Northern Virginia for Foreign Service Officers, WJD Management is the premiere choice. We have been proudly been serving the Foreign Service Community for over 35 years and nearly 70 percent of our clientele are Foreign Service Officers. We have an excellent reputation in the FSO community marked by years of commitment and service in property management. We understand that when a Foreign Service Officer has to relocate overseas, they often need to locate a property management firm quickly and our agency is designed to respond immediately. In our experience, Foreign Service homeowners need a firm that specializes in residential property management and has the infrastructure in place to manage multiple properties at a high level, while still staying connected to the local community. At WJD we maintain a core mission centered on being the only local firm that does not have a real estate sales arm. In our opinion, the most important question that a Foreign Service Officer should consider when hiring a firm is whether the real expertise and focus of a given property management firm is on management or on sales. The answer to this question is usually a pretty precise indicator of the quality of the service you will receive.
By definition, people in the Foreign Service do not live here so if they have made the decision to hire professional property management, they want to hire the best. There really is not a lot of difference between a Foreign Service homeowner and any other absentee homeowner, but there are definitely some very different considerations in terms of expectations, with communication being paramount. WJD Management uses proprietary software giving our owners a web-based owner portal. Further, WJD submits rental proceeds to FSO clients electronically rather than printing a check, mailing it to an overseas postbox and hoping that it gets there. Email and a state-of-the-art web portal provides instant and ongoing communication with Foreign Service Officers who wants to know what is going on with their property.
What sets WJD Management apart from everyone else (aside from the fact that we do not have a real estate arm) is our experience. We are proud of our integral role in chartering the local NARPM chapter in Northern Virginia and work hard to stay active in our industry and local community. As an industry leader in residential property management, WJD has been featured in several publications over the years. Read more about our expert insight at WJD in the News.

How the WJD Realtor Client Referral Program Works
Curious about how the WJD Realtor Client Referral program works? Do you have clients who have tried selling their homes but are currently considering the rental market as an alternative? Or maybe you have recently sold real estate to someone who now needs property management services. If so, please consider recommending WJD Management. We offer up to a 30% referral commission* for any property management opportunities you send our way that result in a minimum 12-month lease, payable when the lease has been signed by all parties. If the referred property is already rented, the referral fee will be paid when the management agreement has been signed by the homeowner.
For more than 35 years we have provided outstanding property management services guaranteed to make Northern Virginia property owners happy. Your clients will find that WJD is easy to work with, has a great staff, and will do its best to keep their property leased to qualified tenants at true market value. I can assure you that the WJD Management team will provide them with one of the finest property management and leasing endeavors available in our area. And because WJD does not list or sell real estate, we will faithfully refer your clients back to you when they are ready to sell their property.
To get started, please register your client by submitting the Client Registration Form, and do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or need any additional information about this program. I look forward to hearing from you.
