Testimonials

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for a job well done. Both of you have always exceeded our expectations with our rental properties. From managing, leasing, taking care of repairs etc, you both have been fantastic!

Tom

As multiple property owner, it is crucial that I can depend on my property management company to help me effectively manage my property and maximize my investment. Over the years, I have encountered several unsuccessful property management companies and had to deal with many problems. Since partnering with Potomac, I have regained my sense of trust and appreciation for the management services that you have provided.

18 Street LLC

A long term relationship has been established with Potomac Management Group because of their professionalism and attention to detail. As a real estate agent it was easy to work with the staff of Potomac as they were providing me with the necessary information needed to close a deal in a timely manner.

Frey Realtor

I want to express to you in a note, how pleased I have been with your professionalism and service. We both know the challenge our tenant has presented over time at our unit in North East. Yonas was so prompt in returning phone calls and emails. He has also managed to keep our tenant calm and work with her on some repairs that were needed.
